details worth noting
Kelley Blue Book

a few more standard options

The luxuriously trimmed 2010 Mercedes-Benz CLS sports a lengthy list of standard features. Satellite radio, Bluetooth connectivity, a Harman/Kardon audio system, and an iPod interface are included on each CLS, along with adaptive cruise control and a set of sensors to assist with parking.

Kelley Blue Book reports the CLS offers "all the equipment you might expect of a sedan costing around $70,000." The list includes a sunroof, four-zone climate control, an LCD control center, and Tele Aid, which provide emergency and directional services (similar to OnStar). reports that in 2009 Mercedes-Benz added standard "satellite radio and larger wheels" to a list that also includes leather upholstery, plenty of wood trim, and an advanced navigation system.

The Mercedes-Benz COMAND (Cockpit Management and Navigation Device) system, which operates navigation, audio, and climate functions, draws many complaints from reviewers around the Web. Edmunds says the system is "largely unintuitive." Like similar features from Audi and BMW, COMAND uses a wheel to dial through options on an LCD screen, and the functionality is like an early, primitive version of Windows. While Audi and BMW have updated their systems for 2010, the Mercedes system hasn't yet received a complete rethink.

"Noteworthy options" in the Mercedes-Benz 2010 CLS, according to Kelley Blue Book, include "active HID headlamps, adaptive radar cruise control, front/rear park assist, heated and ventilated front seats, [and] air support front seats." They also mention that the Mercedes-Benz 2010 CLS can be loaded with a "Harman/Kardon digital surround-sound system, six-disc CD changer, hands-free voice control system, Keyless Go unlock and start and a rear-window sunshade."

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.
