The newest iteration of Mercedes' luxury four-door coupe, the 2022 Mercedes-Benz CLS, is set to arrive at dealerships early next year – meaning you'll be able to pick it up from Hendrick Motors of Charlotte just in time for the warmer spring weather to begin! The 2022 CLS features a number of improvements over previous model years, as well as a simplified model lineup that's sure to turn heads on the North Carolina roads. Let's take a look at what Mercedes-Benz has in store for customers of the redesigned CLS.

All-Wheel Drive CLS450 4Matic

For the 2022 model year, Mercedes has streamlined their offering for the CLS series. Just one model is available under this series, namely the CLS450, which still features plenty to get excited about:

  • 3.0L inline-6 engine with 48-volt Mild Hybrid System
  • 362 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque
  • 4MATIC All-Wheel Drive powertrain
  • 9G-TRONIC 9-speed automatic transmission
  • and more!

That mild hybrid system adds extra power to the engine's torque when accelerating, so you can rev to the max sooner. Plus, the system makes the new CLS450 more efficient than ever before, while eradicating turbo lag.

Updates to the Tech & Style of the Interior

For 2022, Mercedes-Benz has updated the available trims and upholstery available within the CLS, including a Nappa leather wrapped steering wheel with touch controls, natural grain walnut wood trim, and more in the cabin with space for 5.

The dash is thoughtfully designed with 64-color LED accent lighting, as well as twin 12.3-inch screens, one for the driver information, the other for infotainment.

Of course, the infotainment system is the top-of-the-line Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) system, including a voice-activated digital assistant that can understand what you mean, not just what you ask it to do. Say, “Hey Mercedes, I'm cold,” and the A/C will shut off. Ask your Mercedes to find some coffee, and it'll start directions to the nearest shop.

Thoughtful Standard Appointed Features, With Plenty of Upgrades

New standard features in the 2022 Mercedes-Benz CLS include Adaptive Highbeam Assist, where the LED headlights actually change the shape of their field to provide you the best illumination while considering others on the road; a powered sunroof, rain-sensing wipers, and selectable driving modes; integrations for Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, USB-C ports, Bluetooth; and more.

The new CLS also includes all the standard passive and active safety features you've come to expect from a Mercedes, including automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, and a driver attention warning.
