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). Cars.com 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."
