History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class page on 12 October 2018, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class is a series of mid-size luxury cars produced by Mercedes-Benz since 2004.

The original model was a four-door fastback based on the Mercedes E-Class platform, marketed as a four door coupé. An estate (Shooting Brake) model was later added to the model range with the second generation CLS. All models are available as a high performance AMG variant, although it wasn't until the second generation CLS that 4MATIC all-wheel drive was offered.

The CLS range is positioned above the E-Class but below the S-Class in the Mercedes model range, and models tend to be less practical than the E-Class it is based on.
