If you’re looking for a petrol car, the sole offering is the turbocharged 3.0-litre straight-six engine in the 450 4Matic. Thanks to a whopping 362bhp, it can whizz you from 0-62mph in just 4.8sec. Not bad considering this technically isn't the quick one; there will be an even faster Mercedes-AMG CLS 53 arriving later this year. But what’s especially clever about the 450 is its mild hybrid technology, which uses small bursts of electrical power to get you up to speed faster – and it’s noticeable when, for example, you’re pulling away from traffic lights or overtaking on the motorway. As for diesels, the range starts with the 350d 4Matic, boasting a 2.9-litre straight-six engine and 282bhp. It’s very quiet at a cruise, but has as much pulling power as anyone would ever need – and then some. It’s not quite the full-fat, 335bhp 400d 4Matic, but it’s a tidy sum cheaper and ever so slightly more frugal. All things considered, it’s our pick of the range. If the 350d is great, though, the 400d is a belter. It's super-smooth most of the time – certainly more so than the equivalent diesels in the Audi A7 Sportback and BMW 6 Series GT – and there’s effortless pace available with just a tickle of the accelerator; but gun it and it takes on a slightly harder-edged growl and the pace turns ballistic. The standard nine-speed automatic gearbox is decidedly slick and responsive, but not everything else is quite so cultured. While the CLS is whisper-quiet and more hushed than its rivals on the motorway when it comes to wind noise, road and suspension noise (with the standard passive suspension) are noticeably worse. On standard passive suspension, the ride in town is rather lumpy over ruts and ridges compared with a 6 Series GT – even on the smallest (19in) wheels available. It does settle down nicely on the motorway, though, but not to the same extent as a smooth-riding A7 Sportback fitted with optional air suspension. You can fit adaptive air suspension to the CLS, too, but unfortunately this is a bit of a letdown. In the softest Comfort mode, it soothes out bumps around town up to a point, but strike a large, sharp-edged obstacle with any pace and the suspension will produce a forceful thwack so worryingly loud that you might think you've damaged something. Again, it gets better at speed, feeling quite wafty on the motorway; this feeling disappears if you press the Sport button as the suspension gets more controlled of crests, but there’s a little more fidget over rippled roads. What is commendable is the way the CLS handles. Okay, it’s not as pin-sharp or finessed as the more expensive Porsche Panamera, but it feels similarly sure-footed to an A7 Sportback along a twisting back road, and much nimbler and neater than the taller, more wallowy 6 Series GT. The steering is precise and predictable, the brakes smooth and dependable and, with four-wheel drive standard on all versions, it’s tractable even in slippery conditions.

Even compared with the BMW 6 Series GT and Audi A7 Sportback, let alone regular luxury saloon cars, the driving position in the CLS feels cocooning, low and sporty. And in terms of adjustment for the steering wheel and figure-hugging seats, there’s enough of it to accommodate most shapes and sizes. The only issue is the bulge in the transmission tunnel by your left leg that results in offset pedals and a slightly skewed seating position, but it’s far from uncomfortable. The driver’s seat comes with part-electric adjustment as standard, including four-way lumbar adjustment, while full electric adjustment is part of the pricey Premium Plus package. Seeing out the front is fine, but visibility is tricky out of the back due to the tapering rear end that makes the rear windows shallower. However, Mercedes has thought about the stress of parking and added front and rear parking sensors, as well as a rear-view camera, as standard. At night, the standard adaptive LED headlights are superb, too. There’s little doubt that the CLS has one of the snazziest interiors in the class, with a rich mix of materials including stained wood veneers and chrome highlights; these look even plusher when bathed in the ambient lighting at night. Full leather seats are standard and you can upgrade to baby-soft nappa leather for an added charge. However, for all that looks great, it has to be said that, compared with the best-finished cars in the class, of which the A7 would be one, the feel of some parts of the interior feel a bit below par for the price. In terms of infotainment, as you’d expect, sat-nav, a DAB radio and Bluetooth are all included, as well as two 12.3in screens – one for infotainment and one directly in front of the driver in place of analogue instruments. If you go for the mild 450 mild hybrid model, you’ll get an extra indicator to show what the ‘EQ boost’ battery is doing – either assisting with small bursts of power or charging. The infotainment system is controlled either from the rotary dial on the centre console, the touchpad above it or via touch-sensitive buttons on the steering wheel. An upgraded Comand system is part of the pricey Premium Plus package, which adds wi-fi, traffic sign assist and a subscription-based concierge service, as well as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone mirroring that allows you to operate your phone directly from the screen. We like the rotary controller that, like BMW’s iDrive in the 6 Series, is vastly less distracting to use while driving than the touchscreen system in the A7. Whichever version you choose, you’ll find it reasonably responsive, but the menus and general functionality aren’t as intuitive as BMW’s. The standard stereo has seven speakers, but if you add the Premium Plus pack that brings the Comand system, you also get a top-notch Burmester surround-sound stereo with 13 speakers and 590W – it’s good enough to please most audiophiles.

Despite its sporty and intimate feel inside, leg room in the front of the CLS is fine for six-footers, although head room is a little tight. That said, so far we’ve only tried cars with a sunroof fitted and, similarly equipped, an Audi A7 Sportback is no better. There is a lot more head room in a BMW 6 Series GT, though – with or without a sunroof. Compared with a two-door coupé, the extra doors make life much easier for anyone getting in and out of the rear. Once inside, leg room is fine, although nowhere near as good as that in the 6 Series, while the difference in head room is marginal for anyone tall. You will struggle to get three abreast at the back, unless all of them are kids. The saloon-style bootlid leaves a narrow aperture compared with the A7’s wide-opening tailgate, so the CLS won’t fit very bulky items. There’s still a good amount of space otherwise, because we managed to fit seven carry-on suitcases inside; mind you, we fitted nine in the 6 Series. There’s some additional underfloor storage, while a nice touch is a collapsible basket therein that you can unfold and use as a storage container. If you need more room, 40/20/40 split-folding rear seats come as standard, allowing you to fit longer items when required.

Although the CLS is not a cheap purchase – unless perhaps you’re a sheikh with an oily pond in your back garden - it’s comparable to its rivals on list price. That said, at the time of writing, PCP finance deals or leasing costs are sky-high relative to a BMW 6 Series GT. As more discounts become available, no doubt the CLS will get cheaper per month. Depreciation, or the relative lack of it, should be a strong point, with resale values after three years looking to be among the best in class for diesel versions. Claimed fuel consumption is reasonable, too; even the more powerful 400d is claimed to return 47.9mpg, although CO2 emissions of 150g/km put it squarely at the top of the company car tax bands. There’s only one trim – AMG Line – and it comes well equipped. As mentioned earlier, you get part-electric leather seats (which are heated in the front), along with climate control, 19in alloy wheels, digital instruments, front and rear parking sensors and power-folding door mirrors. The optional Premium Plus package is expensive but worth considering for the Comand infotainment system, 360deg camera, 13-speaker Burmester surround-sound system, electric sunroof, keyless entry, powered bootlid and fully electric front seats with memory recall. So far, there’s no Euro NCAP crash rating for the CLS, but the E-Class, from which it borrows heavily, is a five-star car. The CLS comes with automatic emergency braking and lane assist as standard, but blindspot monitoring and traffic sign recognition are extras.
