2016 model year changes
The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class remains mostly unchanged for 2016. All-wheel drive CLS550 models now get the same 9-speed automatic as the rear-wheel drive versions. Mercedes-Benz has also ditched their proprietary smartphone plug, in favor of a more conventional USB interface going forward.
Strong turbocharged V6 and V8 engines; class-leading tech and safety features; superb cabin materials; available all-wheel drive
Special features for 2016
Mercedes-Benz calls the CLS-Class a coupe, but it's actually a 4-door sedan that is considerably curvier than most sedans. It occupies a segment that also includes the Audi A7 and Porsche Panamera. While both of those models come with hatches, the CLS-Class has a trunk. For many shoppers, the relative rarity of the CLS-Class is a selling point; it looks like no other car out there.
