Interior comfort - From pillar to post.


Classy. Luxurious. Comfortable.

Are you forced to make compromises in your day-to-day life? Then you will savour all the more your free space in the new generation CLS-Class. Close the vehicle door, sink back and enjoy: outstanding seating comfort, the free-standing display, the new interior colour schemes and the ergonomically designed steering wheels.

Equipment availability depends on the engine and configuration selected. You will find details in the equipment information for each model.

Active Multicontour Seat package (optional)

The active multicontour seat adjusts particularly well to individual seating needs. It continually adjusts itself to the driving situation, massages the back muscles and reduces the risk of injury in the event of an accident.

Depending on the steering angle, lateral acceleration and speed, the air cushions in the seat side bolsters are adjusted pneumatically in two stages so as to give excellent lateral support even when driving dynamically. After the dynamic function is switched off the previously selected pressure in the side chambers is automatically reset symmetrically.

Other features of the package include:

  • Extremely easy on the back: the massage function reduces symptoms of fatigue in the back muscles on long journeys. It supports the principle of "dynamic sitting" – as recommended by orthopaedic specialists.
  • Award-winning seat: the active multicontour seat has been given the AGR quality seal by the "Aktion gesunder Rücken e. V." ("Campaign for healthy backs") awarded to products which are especially good for the back.
  • More safety: The PRE-SAFE® positioning function makes possible preventive protection measures for driver and front passenger (activation of air cushions in PRE-SAFE® situations). When PRE-SAFE® is activated, the PRE-SAFE® positioning function can automatically move the front passenger seat (in conjunction with the optional Memory package) into a position which is more favourable in the event of an accident. In addition, the NECK-PRO luxury head restraints can contribute to reduce the risk of whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision.
Ambient lighting (optional)

The ambient lighting provides a pleasant indirect lighting effect inside the vehicle at night. Luminous surfaces on the instrument panel and under the door trim elements create an incomparable atmosphere.

In addition, fibre-optic cables and LEDs which are controlled independently of the background light make it easier to find your way around the vehicle when it's dark outside. Exclusive ambient lighting, which can be dimmed to any level and has the three colour schemes of "solar" (amber-coloured), "neutral" (white) and "polar" (ice blue), emphasises the interior design to ensure pleasant light conditions for night driving.

EASY-PACK Quickfold rear seat, fully folding (1/3:2/3 split), including convenience operation in boot and six lashing eyelets

The EASY-PACK quickfold rear seat backrests make possible an individual extension of the load capacity by folding down the backrests.

The rear seats are split 1/3 : 2/3, and each seat and backrest section can be folded down separately. Thus, folding down the seat cushions and backrests offers an individual extension of the loading capacity. It is not necessary to remove the head restraints before folding down the backrests. The backrests are released via release handles accessed from the luggage compartment. The load-securing rings in the luggage compartment are particularly suitable for transporting items when the rear bench seat is folded down.

Exclusive package (optional)

The finest materials add elegant touches to the interior of the CLS Shooting Brake underscoring its exclusive character.

The Exclusive package consists of:

  • Ambient lighting in three different light moods
  • Velour floor mats, edged in nubuck leather
  • Wood/leather steering wheel (not for CLS 63 AMG)
  • DINAMICA roof lining, pillars and sun visors (anthracite, alpaca grey or almond beige, according to interior colour)
  • Nappa leather trim on centre console, armrests, door centre panels, waistline, head restraints, upper section of instrument panel
  • PASSION Exclusive leather upholstery
THERMATIC automatic climate control

THERMATIC automatic climate control delivers individual temperatures and a pleasant climate in the vehicle interior.

The desired temperature and air distribution can be separately regulated for the two zones for the left and right-hand sides of the interior. In addition, a special filter ensures optimum air quality by absorbing dust particles from the outside air.

THERMOTRONIC automatic climate control (optional)

The THERMOTRONIC automatic climate control system allows the driver and passenger to adapt the climate in their respective seats to suit their individual requirements – independently of each other. The system keeps the temperature at the desired level automatically, even in strong sunlight. To this end, sensors register the temperature inside and outside the vehicle, controlling the heating, cooling and fan for each temperature zone individually, according to requirements.

  • To suit every taste: There are three climate styles (DIFFUSE, MEDIUM and FOCUS) available for selection in automatic mode. You can use these styles to adjust the interior climate to your individual preferences. Factors such as outside temperature, humidity and sunlight are taken into account. A diffuser panel on the dashboard reduces draughts.
  • Clean air: Dust and noxious-gas sensors guarantee that virtually all the pollutants remain outside. If required the air vents can close automatically.
  • Pleasant climate in the second row as well: Passengers in the rear seats have the option of individually controlling the climate control for the rear area: intensity, direction and desired temperature can be conveniently set at the push of a button.
Memory package (optional)

With the memory package the driver’s and front-passenger seats and head restraints, steering column and exterior mirrors can be adjusted electrically to any position. This increases convenience when there is a frequent change of drivers. The individual front seat settings for up to three people can be stored and recalled at any time.

When the driver selects a setting, electric controls automatically adjust the seat, exterior mirror and steering column positions to stored settings.

The 4-way lumbar support provides even more comfort. At the push of a button, the backrest curvature of the front seats can be set to meet individual passenger requirements and provide anatomically ergonomic support for the spine in the lumbar area.

When reversing, the driver has an improved view thanks to the automatic tilt function for the front-passenger exterior mirror.

The activation of PRE-SAFE®, also a part of the package, the PRE-SAFE® positioning function can automatically move the passenger seat into a position ("safety position") which is more favourable in the event of a collision.

Heated multifunction steering wheel (optional)

The multifunction steering wheel features a steering wheel heating system that heats it to 35º C, gearshift paddles to manually operate the transmission's gears and 12 function buttons for operating the display menus in the instrument cluster, and for controlling the radio volume.

The steering wheel heating is switched on with a rotary switch on the multifunction steering wheel. A heat mat inside the multifunction steering wheel heats up the steering wheel rim to a temperature of 37º C, and then goes into regulating mode, meaning the temperature oscillates between 34º C and 38º C. If the steering wheel heating is no longer needed, it has to be actively switched off.

Multicontour seat package (optional)

The Multicontour Seats take pressure off the spine and can be precisely adjusted to the ergonomic characteristics of the driver and front passenger. The pressure can also be adjusted in the variable air cushions of the seat side bolsters, the backrests and curvature of the lumbar area. The controls are located on the side next to the cushions between the seat surface and centre console.

The package also includes the PRE-SAFE® positioning function, which enables preventive protection measures for driver and front passenger. If PRE-SAFE® detects a critical situation, the side bolsters of the backrest are inflated, securing driver and passenger in place sidewards. If a collision is avoided, the multicontour seats are deflated again once certain critical thresholds are undercut.

The multicontour seat package also includes the NECK-PRO luxury head restraints.

Sliding sunroof (optional)

The electric sliding glass sunroof features automatic opening and closing, protects against bright sunlight, and includes an interior sliding roof lining. The system is operated intuitively using the multifunction switch. The integrated wind deflector ensures open-top driving at high speeds without excessive noise or draughts.

Heated rear seats (optional)

The electric seat heating in the rear allows for multi-level individual heating of the outer rear seats. The heating level for each seat can be set to normal or rapid heating using the pushbutton or rocker switch control.

Climate-controlled seats for driver and front passenger (optional)

The climatised seats improve ride comfort and reduce transpiration thanks to a pleasant air flow and selectable seat heating. Fans integrated in the seat upholstery uniformly distribute a flow of air in three intensity levels under the leather backrest and cushion covers.

The air flows through the fine perforation and quickly cools down the surface of the seats to a pleasant temperature – even if the vehicle has been heated by an intense amount of sunlight for a longer period of time. On cold days you can use the three-level adjustable seat heating.

Auxiliary heating with radio remote control (optional)

Even on frosty days the auxiliary heater provides pleasant temperatures and removes ice from the windows even before your journey begins. The heater has an output of five kilowatts and functions independently of the engine. It can be activated with a switch in the vehicle, by remote control from a distance of up to 300 metres or using a timer function.
