CLS-Class Creates New Genre

Industry News / Comments

Normally, BMW is associated with creating new genres of vehicles (think BMW X6). Whether or not they are actually useful is another question entirely. But in the case of the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class, the situation is looking good. Designed off the previous generation E-Class sedan platform, the CLS-Class has distinct coupe-like styling. This sporty styling often times attracts buyers who wouldn't normally be interested in a sedan.

More importantly, however, it projects that even the luxury sedan exterior can look sexy and sleek, as opposed to a more conventional body style. With a base price of $73,200, the CLS-Class doesn't come cheap. The high-performance AMG version stickers for around $98,000, but that comes with a 6.2 liter V8 producing 507 horsepower. Driving fast and looking good while doing so in a sedan has never been sexier or cooler.
