Who you are didn’t happen overnight. It’s rooted in your family history, shaped by
life’s experiences, and evident in your ability to continually redefine your potential.
This same depth of character, descended from the very first car, is what defines a
Mercedes-Benz. The new CLS-Class offers expressive style, poised performance
and an exquisitely crafted 4-seat cabin — like history’s most celebrated coupes, but
redefined in four doors. It’s the heart of a coupe and the soul of a Mercedes-Benz.

The CLS-Class redefines what a coupe can be, without losing sight of what a Mercedes-Benz
must be: passionate, innovative and athletically gifted. The victorious Mercedes-Benz Silver
Arrows were descended from the Daimler-powered car that won the world’s first auto race. The
CLS-Class shares this bloodline, along with the heritage of some of the world’s most treasured
coupes. With its seductively arched roof, broad shoulders, frameless door glass and concealed
B-pillars, it offers the stylish and intimate experience you expect of a coupe — only with the
accessibility of four doors. The aggressive stance of staggered-width 18" alloy wheels and
tires1 hints at the physical prowess that lies within. It all comes together in a most definitive
statement — a unique blend of sensation and sensibility that is distinctly Mercedes-Benz.
1 Z-rated tires are optimized for performance driving and may provide reduced ride comfort, increased tire
noise, substantially increased treadwear and greater susceptibility to damage compared with H-rated tires.

It’s the hallmark of a luxury coupe: an interior that embraces you and creates a truly inviting
environment. The CLS-Class welcomes you with an enthralling expanse of hand-finished
wood — the largest single piece ever used in a modern Mercedes-Benz. Soft textures and organic
shapes abound. And while the logical controls may put a wealth of information at your
fingertips, a single touch of the richly crafted materials will tell you everything you need to know.

ATTENTION TO DETAIL
High-performance automobiles are complex, but driving one doesn’t have to be. COMAND — our standard Cockpit Management and
Data system — features a large colour-LCD screen and integrates the radio, CD player, DVD-based navigation system1 and portable
phone,1 to simplify multiple tasks and put important information easily at hand. COMAND can even be accessed through steering
wheel-mounted controls and a multifunction display in the speedometer face. Simple iconic controls let you adjust the 10-way
power front seats easily. If all of this leaves you with the impression that nothing is too small for us to fuss over, you’re right.

INDULGENCE
SHOULD BE
S H A R E D.
Coupes by nature tend to be selfish. They surround you in the cozy ambience that a rakish roofline can create,
and ensconce you in a very personal space. But unlike conventional two-door bodystyles, the unique 4-door
design of the CLS-Class provides intimacy without entanglements. Whether you’re nestled in the 10-way power
front seats or lounging in the individually contoured rear seats, you’ll enjoy the warmth of hand-fitted leather
upholstery and a full-length centre console awash in hand-finished wood. And since warmth can come in many
forms, we’ve also provided the added indulgence of standard heated front seats and 4-zone digital climate control.
OPTIONAL HARMAN/KARDON SURROUND SOUND
The available harman/kardon® LOGIC7® sound system
features 12 speakers and a 7.1-channel amplifier, and
provides multichannel digital surround sound for FM
radio and CD playback. Using technology originally
developed for the professional recording industry and
optimized for the CLS-Class interior, it immerses you in
sensual sound. A 6-disc in-dash CD changer is included.
4-ZONE CLIMATE CONTROL
With four individual digital temperature and airflow
controls and a separate rear-cabin control panel, your
comfort is assured. The climate control system is so
advanced, it employs a sun sensor that helps it
compensate for directional sunlight.
FULL-LENGTH CENTRE CONSOLE
It’s not only functional, but also a work of art. The
rolltop covers for the rear console compartments are
each covered in matte-finish Burl Walnut wood — or highpolish Laurel wood as an option — that has been
laser-cut from a single piece for continuity of grain.
Inside, another luxurious touch awaits, as the main
compartment is richly lined like a jewel case.

TO S TAY O U T O F I T S WAY.
Combine the passionate design of the CLS-Class with AMG’s fanatical devotion to
performance and you have the CLS 55 AMG, a car that loves to live on the leading edge.
With a supercharged V-8 producing 469 hp and AMG SpeedShift™ technology providing
35% faster shifts, 100 km/h gets brushed aside in a mere 4.7 seconds,1 leaving only
the rumble from four polished stainless-steel exhaust tips in its wake. And with its
distinctive styling — from the prominent 3-rib grille, chiselled front apron and side sills,
and subtle rear lip spoiler — it serves a visual warning to all that cross its path. Oh, and
did we mention that the CLS 55 AMG also offers the civility and refinement found in
every Mercedes-Benz? Better make that 470 reasons.
BEHIND THE WHEEL
There’s no denying the visual impact of
staggered-width 19" AMG thin-spoke
monoblock wheels and the visceral impact
of 255/35 R19 front and 285/30 R19 rear
high-performance tires.2 Look deeper and
you’ll find the awesome braking power of
8-piston front calipers gripping massive
360-mm perforated discs. And to enhance
the strength of the brake discs, the
perforations are cast in place, since drilling
could create stress points.
1 The stated rate of acceleration is based upon manufacturer’s track results and may vary depending upon model, environmental and road surface conditions, driving style, elevation and
vehicle load. 2 AMG 19" wheels and accompanying high-speed-rated tires provide substantially increased treadwear and reduced ride comfort compared to H-rated tires. Serious wheel and
tire damage may occur if the vehicle is operated on rough or damaged road surfaces or upon encountering road debris or obstacles.

For those very special moments, we’ve made sure the CLS 55 AMG is
properly attired. Multicontour front seats let you fine-tune your comfort with
pneumatically adjustable side bolsters and lumbar supports. Rich perforated
Nappa leather upholstery is accented by Alcantara trim in the shoulder areas
and topstitching all around. And for a most intimate driving experience,
Formula One-style manual shift buttons are located a mere fingertip’s reach
away on the steering wheel. Stylish, sporty and seductive, the CLS 55 AMG
is what every enthusiast will want to be seen in for 2006.
GAUGE REACTION
A 320 km/h speedometer1 is a rare thrill by
any measure. And with its deep-set ivory-colour
instruments highlighted by bright red indicators,
the CLS 55 AMG is stimulating at any rate of travel.

STRONG
A 5.0-litre V-8 pumping out 302 horsepower and 339 lb-ft of torque is impressive, but with the
CLS 500, it’s only the start. The V-8 engine’s broad, flat torque band means responsive acceleration
at any speed — including a spirited 6.1-second 0–100 sprint.1 Enhancing the experience is the
industry’s first 7-speed automatic transmission. With a wider range of gears than traditional
automatics, you can always be in the ideal gear for rapid acceleration, while at cruising speeds you
can enjoy a quieter ride and improved fuel economy. The well-mannered 7-speed even adapts to
your driving style: Drive more enthusiastically, and it shifts at higher rpm. When you’re in a more
relaxed mood, it glides between gears to maximize efficiency.

There’s a difference between style and design. Great design must include equally
outstanding function. So when the breathtaking lines of the CLS-Class were drawn, we
never lost sight of performance. That’s why under that sleek hood is a powerful and
responsive 302-hp V-8 in the CLS 500, and an earth-trembling supercharged 469-hp V-8
in the CLS 55 AMG. Each is teamed to an advanced automatic transmission that adapts to
your driving style and features Touch Shift control for the joy of manual-style shifting. All
because the excitement of owning a Mercedes-Benz has to be far more than skin deep.

EXTRA-STRENGTH
If the CLS-Class pushes the envelope of design, the CLS 55 AMG’s 469-hp Kompressor V-8 makes sure it’s
nothing less than express delivery. Handcrafted by a single technician who affixes his signature to it, each engine
features such racing-derived ingredients as aluminium pistons forged for strength, a crankshaft individually
balanced to reduce vibration, and camshafts aggressively profiled for a spine-tingling rush to redline. For
maximum exhilaration, the V-8 employs a helical supercharger and liquid-to-air intercooler for a 516 lb-ft rush
of torque starting at just 2,650 rpm. With a driver-adaptive 5-speed automatic transmission offering the manual
control of steering wheel-mounted buttons, 0–100 km/h in a scorching 4.7 seconds1 can be yours in a snap.

While the CLS-Class is designed to treat
everyone on board exceedingly well, we
do play favourites — the driver comes first.
So if you have a controlling interest in
an automobile, you’ll be pleased to find
Airmatic, an advanced semi-active air
suspension that gives precise response
and lets you dial in your preferred blend
of ride and handling. It only takes one turn
to appreciate the outstanding road feel
of speed-sensitive power rack-and-pinion
steering, and with our pioneering Electronic
Stability Program (ESP),1 the unmatched
confidence to handle whatever may come
your way.
CLS 500 shown in Iridium Silver metallic with optional AMG Sport Package.
MULTILINK SUSPENSION
For legendary control, the CLS-Class employs a
4-wheel multilink suspension featuring antidive
geometry for exceptional poise, even under severe
braking. A Mercedes-Benz innovation, the 5-arm
rear multilink design controls rear-wheel movement
with outstanding precision, making it ideal for rearwheel drive — the choice of driving enthusiasts for its
pure power delivery and precise steering feel.
AIRMATIC DUAL CONTROL
Airmatic DC semi-active air suspension
provides optimal ride comfort, yet instantly
firms up as driving dynamics demand crisp
response. Self-levelling Airmatic can even
raise or lower the ride height — automatically,
or at your pushbutton command.
ELECTRONIC STABILITY PROGRAM
The CLS-Class has ESP, a handling advantage that allows it to
react quickly and confidently to the onset of skidding in curves.
ESP continuously monitors your steering and braking actions while
you’re cornering and compares them to the actual vehicle path. If it
senses the onset of plowing (understeer) or fishtailing (oversteer),
ESP brakes individual wheels and/or reduces excess engine power,
to help keep you on course.1 ESP also incorporates all-speed
traction control to help control wheelspin during acceleration.
ADAPTIVE DAMPING SYSTEM
The Adaptive Damping System (ADS II)
lets you tailor your driving experience
with three selectable driving modes —
two for sport and one for comfort — at
the touch of a button. ADS II continually
optimizes ride and handling by individually
adjusting each wheel’s shock-absorber
rate every time the wheel changes its
direction of up–down travel.
1 No system, regardless of how advanced, can overcome
physics or correct careless driving. Please always wear
your seat belt.

ENHANCED 4-WHEEL DISC BRAKES
The CLS-Class features an advanced 4-wheel disc braking system,
including 4-piston front calipers for impressive stopping power.
Equally impressive, Sensotronic — the electrohydraulic braking
system in the CLS-Class — can automatically determine the most
effective brake pressure to apply at each wheel individually,
adding up to better control. Lift your foot off the accelerator
quickly, and the system sets the brake pads nearer to the discs
for even quicker response. Turn on the windshield wipers, and
periodically and imperceptibly the brakes are applied to keep
them drier and ready for action.
EMERGENCY-SENSING BRAKE ASSIST
Mercedes-Benz research has shown that drivers tend not to brake
hard enough, soon enough, in an emergency. Our engineers
developed Brake Assist to help overcome this tendency. Upon
sensing panic stopping based on the speed at which you depress
the brake pedal, Brake Assist automatically applies all available
power braking boost immediately. By helping to eliminate the
delay caused by human nature, Brake Assist can potentially
reduce your overall stopping distance when it matters most.1
BODY STRUCTURE AND CRUMPLE ZONES
The CLS-Class uses advanced technology and robust materials to create a virtual fortress for its four
occupants. High-strength/low-alloy steel is used in critical areas throughout the vehicle. Roof pillars
employ three layers of steel. Full-width front and rear crossmembers, along with a reinforced floorpan,
doors and door sills, combine to provide formidable protection in a variety of impacts. Advanced front
and rear crumple zones progressively deform to help absorb the energy of an impact, while underhood
components are staggered to help prevent their stacking up in a severe frontal impact, to reduce the
likelihood of intrusion into the cabin. An ellipsoidal front bulkhead helps channel some of the forces
of a severe frontal impact under, over and around the passenger cabin.
While the protective systems of the CLS-Class are quite complex, our underlying philosophy of
safety is really quite simple. First, the most survivable accident is the one that never happens. To
that end, along with its responsive handling, the CLS-Class features pioneering Mercedes-Benz
safety technology such as Electronic Stability Program (ESP), all-speed traction control, and
emergency-sensing Brake Assist. If avoidance is impossible, the CLS is designed to protect you
with an advanced integrated restraint system that includes a rollover sensor and the 10-way
protection of eight air bags, all wrapped in a tremendously strong body structure. Because
even though we hope you’ll never experience an accident, we’ve been continually researching
and innovating to better protect you in those precious moments for well over half a century.
ROLLOVER SENSOR
If the CLS-Class senses certain rollovers, it will automatically deploy the seat-belt
Emergency Tensioning Devices to help reduce occupant movement and, if deemed
necessary, inflate the Head Protection Curtains.2
10-WAY AIR BAG PROTECTION
The CLS-Class features the 10-way protection of an eight-air-bag system comprised
of dual-stage front air bags, front and rear side-impact air bags, and full-length Head
Protection Curtains that deploy along the front and rear side windows on the affected
side, to help protect both front and rear occupants from head injury and broken glass
in certain side impacts or rollovers.2
SIDE-IMPACT PROTECTION
Reinforced doors, side sills and floorpan are part of an integrated safety design
that also includes high-strength seat structures, all of which work in concert to
afford considerable protection in side impacts. Four side-impact air bags and Head
Protection Curtains further enhance occupant protection.
1 No system, regardless of how advanced, can overcome physics or correct careless driving. Please always wear your seat belt. 2 WARNING: THE FORCES OF A DEPLOYING AIR BAG CAN
CAUSE SERIOUS OR FATAL INJURY TO A CHILD UNDER AGE 13. THE SAFEST SEATING POSITION FOR YOUR CHILD IS IN THE REAR SEAT, BELTED INTO AN APPROPRIATE, PROPERLY INSTALLED CHILD
SEAT, OR CORRECTLY WEARING A SEAT BELT IF TOO LARGE FOR A CHILD SEAT. A CHILD UNDER 13 MUST NOT USE THE FRONT SEAT UNLESS THE CHILD IS BELTED INTO AN APPROPRIATE,
PROPERLY INSTALLED BABYSMART-COMPATIBLE CHILD SEAT AND THE “PASSENGER AIR BAG OFF” INDICATOR REMAINS ILLUMINATED. At time of press, the toddler seat (for children 9–18 kg)
is not approved for use in Canada. SEE OPERATOR’S MANUAL FOR ADDITIONAL WARNINGS AND INFORMATION ON AIR BAGS, SEAT BELTS AND CHILD SEATS.
AMG SPORT PACKAGE
P18/19
NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE
PO W E R
OF A FIRST IMPRESSION.
The first time you see the CLS 500 with the optional AMG Sport Package, you know. From the
aggressive AMG-design front air dam to the rear apron draping dual chromed oval exhaust tips, the
message is subtle but unmistakable: Muscle. Talent. Confidence. You can see it in the sculpted side
sills framed by massive 18" AMG double-spoke alloy wheels.1 You can feel it as you execute shifts
through the steering wheel-mounted fingertip shift controls. Is it an unfair world where so much is
judged by first meetings? That would depend entirely on the impression that you make.
1 AMG 18" wheels and accompanying high-speed-rated tires
provide substantially increased treadwear and reduced ride
comfort compared to H-rated tires. Serious wheel and tire
damage may occur if the vehicle is operated on rough or damaged
road surfaces or upon encountering road debris or obstacles.

01 ACTIVE BI-XENON HEADLAMPS AND CORNER-ILLUMINATING FOGLAMPS
Truly visionary thinking, active headlamps1 monitor your steering angle and driving speed,
then shift their beams to either side to better follow the curvature of the road ahead,
increasing usable illumination of curves by up to 90% over conventional headlamps. Also
included are high-performance Bi-Xenon headlamps that produce a bright blue-white light
to provide better vision over longer distances when using either low or high beams. They
also incorporate dynamic level control to help cut glare, as well as high-pressure washers.
On CLS 500 models without the AMG Sport Package, this option further includes cornerilluminating front foglamps, which illuminate with the turn signals to help brighten your way
into dark driveways or alleys. They are also activated by the steering at speeds up to 40 km/h,
to help improve the illumination of a curving roadway ahead.
03 PARKTRONIC SYSTEM
Parktronic can help you avoid objects that might be outside of your sightlines when parking
your CLS-Class. When ultrasonic sensors in the front and rear bumpers detect objects in
their field of view, audible signals and illuminated displays on the dash and rear cabin ceiling
help you manoeuvre with confidence.
02 DISTRONIC ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL
The first of its kind, Distronic reduces the need to continuously adjust your cruise control
setting. By employing a radar signal to monitor your distance to vehicles ahead, the system
adjusts to help maintain your speed and preset following distance automatically.2
05 DRIVE-DYNAMIC FRONT SEATS
Drive-Dynamic seats automatically adapt in response to cornering forces, rapidly inflating
and deflating the side bolsters for active lateral support.
04 KEYLESS GO
This optional enhancement of the SmartKey system lets you unlock your CLS-Class by
grasping the outside door handle — without removing the key from your pocket or purse.
Startup is equally easy: Put your foot on the brake, tap the top of the gearshift, and you’re
ready to take off. After you park, touch a button on the outside door handle to lock the car.

and Hawaii, all from a single DVD.3
07 HARMAN/KARDON LOGIC7 SOUND SYSTEM
The optional harman/kardon® LOGIC7® sound system features
12 speakers and a 7.1-channel amplifier for incredible digital surround
sound. It includes a single-feed 6-disc CD changer concealed behind a
motorized, wood-trimmed panel in the dash, and can be controlled via

a great convenience when approaching with your arms full of packages.
09 ACTIVE VENTILATED FRONT SEATS
Optional Active Ventilated front seats use miniature internal fans to
circulate air through perforations in the upholstery, and include the
heating feature.
10 ALL-WEATHER FLOOR MATS
These all-season floor mats are a great way to keep the carpet of your
CLS-Class in top condition. Deep channels trap large amounts of water,
mud and melting snow. They’re easy to clean, and available in black,

11 RUN-FLAT TIRES WITH LOW-PRESSURE WARNING SYSTEM
A CLS 500 option, extended-mobility tires 4 (not shown, and not available
on the CLS 55 AMG) can be driven a limited distance after a loss of air
pressure in a tire. The low-tire-pressure warning system alerts the driver
if a loss of pressure has occurred.
1 Standard on CLS 55 AMG. 2 Distronic adaptive cruise control is no substitute for
active driving involvement. It does not react to stationary objects, nor recognize or
predict the curvature and lane layout of the road or the movement of vehicles ahead,
and it can only apply a maximum of 20% of vehicle braking power. It is the driver’s
responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide
the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the
vehicle. 3 While the navigation system provides directional assistance, the driver
must remain focused on safe driving behaviour, including paying attention to traffic
and street signs. The driver should utilize the system’s audio cues while driving and
should only consult the map or verbal displays once the vehicle has been stopped
in a safe place. DVD-ROM maps do not cover all areas nor all routes within an area.

from the Drive position. Shift into Optimum Gear programming allows one-touch selection of the best gear for maximum acceleration or engine braking by holding the shift lever to the left of Drive for one second. Driverselectable Comfort mode starts vehicle moving in 2nd gear or a second Reverse gear, and upshifts at lower rpm, to help improve control on slippery surfaces.
Not available.
AMG SpeedShift programming provides up to 35% faster gear changes, automatically downshifts during braking,
prevents unwanted upshifting in corners, and features torque converter lockup in all forward gears.
Fingertip manual mode allows direct-access shifting through forward gears via buttons on back of upper steeringwheel spokes (left button downshifts, right button upshifts) or via Touch Shift feature of shift lever, and will
automatically intervene only to select 1st gear when the vehicle stops. In Sport and Comfort modes, the steeringwheel buttons operate the Touch Shift feature.

TRACTION / STABILITY
Electronic Stability Program
ESP compares the driver’s intended course, via steering and braking inputs, to the vehicle’s response, via lateral acceleration, rotation (yaw) and individual wheel speeds. ESP then brakes individual front or rear wheels
and/or reduces excess engine power as needed to help correct understeer (plowing) or oversteer (fishtailing). ESP also integrates all-speed traction control, which senses drive-wheel slip under acceleration and individually
brakes the slipping wheel or wheels, and/or reduces excess engine power, until control is regained.2

5 AMG 18" and 19" wheels and accompanying high-speed-rated tires provide substantially
increased treadwear and reduced ride comfort compared to H-rated tires. Serious wheel
and tire damage may occur if the vehicle is operated on rough or damaged road surfaces
or upon encountering road debris or obstacles.
6 Z-rated tires are optimized for performance driving and may provide reduced ride comfort,
increased tire noise, substantially increased treadwear and greater susceptibility to damage
compared with H-rated tires.
7 Braking effectiveness also depends on proper brake system maintenance, and tire and
road conditions.

geometry for antisquat and alignment control. Enlarged stabilizer bar.
Airmatic Dual Control is a semi-active suspension that provides greater ride comfort yet responds to reduce pitch, dive and roll during braking, accelerating and cornering by instantaneously firming up spring rates as driving
dynamics change. Electronically controlled pneumatic spring-struts integrate variable-rate shock absorbers and coil springs.
ADS II continually optimizes ride and handling by automatically selecting one of four damping profiles for each spring-strut every time a wheel changes its direction of up–down travel. Dual driver-selectable sport modes
engage firmer damping profiles either full-time or at lower thresholds of body movement. Automatic 4-wheel level control includes driver-selectable ride-height control, and automatic speed-sensitive lowering at higher
speeds or when in sport mode.4

Sensotronic electrohydraulic braking transmits brake pressure individually to each wheel based on driver input and various vehicle parameters. Sensotronic more precisely controls brake pressure at each wheel in normal
braking, emergency stopping and ESP activity.2 Automatic Brake Drying applies the brakes lightly and briefly based on windshield wiper use and driver braking intervals, to reduce moisture on the brake surfaces in wet
weather. Predictive Brake Priming sets the brake pads near to the discs when the driver quickly releases the accelerator, for faster brake response.
ABS senses impending wheel lockup under heavy braking and pumps the front brakes individually or the rear brakes together (to help maintain stability) as needed up to 30 times per second, to prevent lockup and maintain
steering ability. Sensotronic eliminates the pedal pulsation commonly associated with conventional brake systems and ABS. Brake Assist senses emergency braking via the speed at which the driver presses the brake pedal
and immediately applies maximum available power boost, potentially reducing the overall stopping distance by eliminating the delay caused by a common human tendency not to brake hard enough, soon enough. Letting up
on the brake pedal releases Brake Assist..7

24-hour Roadside Assistance
During the basic warranty coverage of 48 months and the time
duration of the optional Extended Limited Warranty, Mercedes-Benz
Roadside Assistance will be at your service. We’ll bring you some gas,
replace a flat tire with your spare, or jump-start your car. In the event
of a mechanical breakdown, if attempts by our Roadside Assistance
technician have not made your vehicle safely operable, towing
service will be provided to the nearest Mercedes-Benz dealership.
Assistance is available 24 hours a day, every day, to anyone driving
a Mercedes-Benz anywhere in Canada or the continental U.S.1
Wear and tear coverage
For 24 months or 40,000 km (whichever comes first) many items
normally considered “wear and tear,” such as light bulbs, wiper blade
refills, and brake pads and discs, are covered. If necessary, an authorized
Mercedes-Benz dealer will replace these parts at no charge to you.
Customer service
Owning a Mercedes-Benz means that when you have a question, we’re
here to help. Customer Service is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST, Monday
through Friday, and is staffed with knowledgeable Mercedes-Benz
people who can talk you through the finer points of working your car’s
audio system — or even assist you in locating the nearest Mercedes-Benz
dealership. Just call 1-800-387-0100. It’s that simple.
Mercedes-Benz warranties
The Mercedes-Benz New Car Limited Warranty covers defects in
materials or workmanship for 48 months or 80,000 km, whichever
occurs first. To widen your window of confidence, you can opt for a
Mercedes-Benz Extended Limited Warranty as well.2
Genuine Mercedes-Benz parts
Your dealer has access to a vast inventory of parts for both new and
vintage Mercedes-Benz vehicles. And we’ve made a nationwide effort
to encourage our dealers to keep parts and labour prices competitive
with those of independent garages.
Time for basic maintenance? Ask your CLS-Class.
No two drivers are the same. That’s why the Flexible Service System
Plus in your CLS-Class monitors certain indicators of oil condition,
engine loads, rpm, operating temperatures and your driving habits to
determine when basic maintenance is really necessary.3 It even monitors
brake-pad wear. Then a display on the dash reminds you to contact
your Mercedes-Benz dealer for an appointment. So you can spend less
time servicing your CLS-Class and more time enjoying your life.
Trip interruption reimbursement
If a breakdown covered by your New Car Limited Warranty occurs
more than 80 km from your home, leaves your Mercedes-Benz vehicle
inoperable or unsafe to drive, and requires overnight repairs, we’ve got
you covered. You will be reimbursed up to $500 for hotel accommodations
and up to $600 for alternate travel expenses per incident while your
car is being repaired at an authorized Mercedes-Benz dealership.
Alternate transportation
Your life doesn’t have to get put on hold just because it’s time for
service or maintenance on your car. That’s why your Mercedes-Benz
dealer always endeavours to provide you with alternate transportation
when you drop off your vehicle for service.4
