From its launch in 2004, the Mercedes CLS quickly carved itself a niche in the market as an executive 4-door coupe with its blend of styling queues from the sportier coupes and the practical and comfortable interior of Mercedes’ E-class saloon from which the CLS shares its platform.
This example is finished in metallic black with a light grey heated leather interior with an unmarked soft wood veneer. Having covered just 105,000 miles since its production in 2006, the 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 diesel engine has smooth and swift acceleration through the car’s 7-speed automatic gearbox diverting all 220bhp to the rear wheels. Being a diesel engine, you can expect an average of 37mpg.
Inside the car you have all the standard refinements one would expect from a Mercedes-Benz of this age. You have soft, hugely comfortable electrically adjustable and heated front seats, dual zone climate control and air conditioning, CD player/radio, cruise control and speed limiter, automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, electric front and rear windows and Bluetooth handsfree phone.
The first generation CLS is one of the prettiest designs to come from Mercedes car designer Michael Fink and it is quickly becoming a handsome prospect for a future classic.
