Introduction

What Car? says...

It was always accepted that if you wanted a good-looking coupé, you had to live with compromises – until the first Mercedes CLS rocked up with a svelte side profile but four doors. 

The CLS proved to be a hit because it was as unique as a newly discovered galaxy. No manufacturer had thought of combining four-door versatility with the rakish front and rear-end looks of a two-door coupé – and, boy, did it go down a storm.
