The CLS has been a genre-busting success
The Mercedes-Benz CLS is now nearly 15 years old, the genre-busting saloon/coupe thingy now in its third generation. Very much a toe-dipping exercise from the niche-creating experts, the fact there’s a new one underlines how successful it’s been. Indeed, up until June this year the CLS has accounted for 350,000 sales, which might not sound like much, but with the model mix skewed appreciably to the hottest, most expensive AMG versions it’s obviously very good business for the firm. We’re in the passenger seat of this fairly heavily disguised example today, driving on UK roads, the production version to be revealed at the LA Auto Show this November.
