Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class ranked #5 in Luxury Large Cars. Currently the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class has a score of 8.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 37 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Powerful engines
Adept handling
Supportive front seats

Cons
Cramped rear seats
Frustrating infotainment system
Undersized trunk

By:

For 2018, Mercedes has discontinued the entry-level CLS 400 from the lineup. A rearview camera is now standard for the remaining CLS trims.

PROS
Powerful engines for decisive acceleration
Pleasing balance of handling performance and comfort
Long list of available advanced safety features
Sleek exterior and impeccable interior

CONS
Lacks the features of current Mercedes vehicles
Rear headroom is limited by the sloping roofline

The 2018 Mercedes CLS hangs on to its lissome curves; it’s V-8 only this year.

Pros
Gorgeous profile
Poised ride
V-8 only–it’s throwback CLS!
Beautifully appointed cabin
AMG’s scorching appeal

Cons
Low gas mileage
Rear-seat head room is slim
Small trunk
Kludgy infotainment
With an E-Class so good...

Words such as sumptuous and lavish don’t properly illustrate how luxurious the palatial Mercedes-Maybach S-class truly is. Passengers can stretch out and relax on hot-stone-style massaging leather recliners and enjoy the Burmester audio system while an atomizer fills the cabin with one of Maybach’s five signature fragrances.

Pros
High-class cabin,
stretch-out rear seat,
seriously quick.

Cons
Self-driving features still need work,
still resembles an S-class too much.

By: 
caranddriver.com

For 2018, the Maybach sedan receives freshened styling, more powerful high-beam headlights, the latest COMAND infotainment system, wireless charging for front and rear seats, and Mercedes' Energizing Comfort system.

PROS
Exceptionally comfortable and quiet
Outstanding rear-seat functionality and features
Chock full of standard safety features
Strong engines and brakes

CONS
Mercedes heritage might not be special enough
