If there is one car classification the car manufacturing mogul, Mercedes-Benz can be proud of, it is the Mercedes CLS. The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class is a relatively young automobile, barely even ten years old. It was initially released back at 2004, and since then, has had only one generation change (it has two generations so far).
The CLS-Class is classified as an “executive-size sedan”. This particular car made a significant contribution to Mercedes-Benz, since it signified the return of Mercedes-Benz into the executive-size coupé race. Before the CLS-Class revived Mercedes-Benz into the executive-size coupé race, it was Mercedes-Benz’s E-Class coupé that gave them the advantage in the coupé classification. The E-Class, however, was halted of production in 1995. Now, the CLS-Class is stronger than ever in its classification type.
The 1st generation of the CLS-Class started from 2004 and lasted up until 2010, wherein its 2nd generation now reigns. The CLS-Class is arguably one of the safest cars to drive around, since Mercedes-Benz made it a point to add in all of their most advanced safety features in this car. The Mercedes CLS is also one of the most powerful cars, performance-wise, since both the 1st and 2nd generations of this car were modelled after multiple Mercedes automotive platforms.
