The silhouette of the CLS Class is unmistakable, with a long, arching, coupe-like roof sloping into relatively short front and rear ends. At the front and sides, bold angles and character curves add definition to the once-smooth shape of the CLS. Strong trapezoidal themes, seemingly flared fenders, and an overall look of more masculine solidity defines the current CLS Class. In CLS63 AMG guise, the fast four-door coupe enters the realm of truly aggressive.
Inside, the story is much the same, though efforts to out-do the E Class lead to a degree of busy-ness that's not entirely welcome. While the interior is undeniably well-made and well-appointed, the proliferation of details, curves, and adornments can be distracting. That said, the materials are pleasing to both touch and eye, and the overall style is luxurious, modern, and rich.
Upgrading to the CLS63 AMG adds another layer of design, which in some cases means more bling. Nonetheless, the AMG's interior is among the most well-executed and attractive in the business short of the hyper-luxury class.
