What's the used Mercedes-Benz CLS coupe like?

Is the Mercedes CLS a coupé or a saloon? And does it really matter when it looks this good?

The price you pay for that style is reduced practicality compared with the E-Class saloon of the same era, on which it's based. Six-footers have to stoop slightly in the back, although there is room for four adults and the boot is large.

Stowage space is good, too, while the interior of the CLS is very nicely finished and the driving position is excellent with a fully adjustable electric driver's seat.

With a chassis that's modified over the E-Class's, the CLS has a sharper, more sporting feel, but not in an overly aggressive way. Most models still provide a comfortable ride and are easy to live with.

Performance, even from the diesel version, is strong, yet it doesn't come at the cost of refinement. This is a civilised and relaxing cruiser.
