Amazing Cars & Drives Car Buyers Guide: Mercedes-Benz CLS 350D AMG Line Coupe Review
Featuring as our latest post is the Mercedes-Benz CLS 350D AMG Line Coupe review. With the arrival of the new Mercedes-Benz CLS Series, the manufacturer has set itself the lofty ambition of combining the very best features of saloon and coupe cars. After our test drive of the CLS 350D Line Coupe, we are pleased to say that Mercedes-Benz have achieved just that.
Indeed, the fusion of these vehicle types represents the creation of a new sector in the automobile market. Now in its third generation, the latest CLS Series comes as a strong competitor to leading rivals, including the Audi A7 and Volkswagen Arteon. In this model, Mercedes have created a smoother-bodied car, with few lines and metal which is nearly completely free of creases.
On the one hand, in the interior, you get something approaching the high-class cabin and practicality you’d expect of a Mercedes executive saloon, such as the E- or S-Class; and, on the other hand, it’s all dressed up in a body that’s very deliberately designed to include features that are typical of Mercedes coupes. Despite taking on this new shape, the new line coupe comes equipped with all the features typical of a coupe, including the iconic diamond grille, dual section tail lamps and an enlarged Mercedes logo on the lid of the boot.
The car’s interior is black in all areas, including the sleek dashboard, door times, roof lining, steering wheel and carpets. Beyond aesthetics, however, the new CLS Line Coupe is a seriously powerful motoring experience. The 350d comes equipped with six-cylinder diesels, as well as a 3.0 litre petrol engine, all supported by an advanced electric hybrid system.
This car really excels as a secure, robust high-speed cruiser. With comfort that matches the performance of the vehicle, this car comes highly recommended as a spacious and tech-loaded four seater.
