The CLS was added to the Mercedes lineup in 2006 as an all-new model. This four-door has a sleeker and more coupe-like profile than the average luxury sedan — with crisp curves and a tall beltline that creates a lowered-roof effect. For 2007, the lineup is improved with a new CLS63 AMG, which comes with a 507 horsepower engine vs. the previous CLS55 AMG’s 469-hp engine. A CLS550 supplants the ’06 CLS500 — with an up-rated 382-hp engine vs. the previous year’s 302-hp V-8. All ’07 CLS models are equipped with Mercedes’ PRE-SAFE collision preparation system, which was originally offered on the S-Class sedan. All models also get a premium Harmon/Kardon audio system with six-disc CD changer. Both CLS-Class engines drive the rear wheels via a seven-speed automatic transmission. An Airmatic suspension, Sensotronic Brake Control, traction control, Automatic Slip Program, and Electronic Stability Program are included. Side-impact and side-curtain airbags, and active front head restraints, are standard. The CLS also comes with heated and ventilated multi-contour seats, adaptive cruise control and headlamps, in addition to a power trunk closer. All audio systems have an interface for an Apple iPod/ MP3 player.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
