When Mercedes first unveiled the CLS it claimed it had invented a new market sector. The manufacturer had pulled off something special and created a saloon that was dynamic, appealing and refined and Mercedes sold some 170000 CLS’s. Manufacturers like Audi and BMW tried to play catch up with the A7 and the 5-series GT. The CLS is the first of the so-called 4-door coupes and therein lays its appeal.
