Review Summary:

Perhaps one of the best looking cars on the market, the 2014 CLS is becoming a popular sight on the UAE roads.

Looks

There is little to criticise on the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS. Mercedes-Benz’s executive coupe-saloon, which is based on the C-Class, looks stunning from all angles. The swooping lines that join the back to the front are sleek and silky, the front is arranged neatly and the back-end is one of the finest on the roads.

Feel

The CLS is astonishingly comfortable and stylish. Inside you are surrounded by two-tone leather, piano lacquer, wood, and all that other good stuff. There is still the dominating feeling that you are in a Mercedes, with its clinical finishing, but there is almost a Jaguar-like feeling in there, too.

Engineering

As you would expect, the CLS has been designed for an executive class of person. It is therefore replete with features such as a DVD changer, Bluetooth, parking camera, thermal front seats and so on. This being a Mercedes, there is also a raft of sport packages, designed to offer the optimum driving experience.

What’s on offer?

Three variations of the CLS are available in the UAE; the CLS 350, 500, and 63 AMG. Prices are AED 324,000, AED 393,000, and AED 511,000 respectively. The 350 brings 306hp to the table while the top line AMG model belts out a substantial 525hp and 700Nm of torque!

Summing it

The CLS range is certainly expensive, and owning one of the models will certainly let everyone know that you’re well off. But that aside, it’s a beautiful car that looks as good as it feels. It’s subtle enough to blend in, but striking enough to turn heads at the same time. A real winner.
