Mercedes Benz CLS450 Rent in Dubai
The Mercedes Benz CLS450 Rent in Dubai borrows a chassis and interior trimmings from the E-class but puts its own slinky spin on the exterior styling. Under its creased hood is a smooth 362-hp inline-six boosted by an electric motor that can add 21 hp low in the rev range to combat turbo lag. The car’s E-class underpinnings mean it’s more boulevard cruiser than back-road bomber, but its ride is comfortable, and the cabin is dripping with luxury. The sloped roof trims rear-seat headroom, but that’s the trade-off for good looks.
The Mercedes Benz CLS450 Rent in Dubai sacrifices practicality in the name of beauty, and the mid-size luxury sedan certainly looks pretty. Within its shapely shell is a decadent interior and luscious atmosphere, well, at least for those sitting in the front two seats. The sedan’s coupe-like roofline contributes to the aforementioned compromises when it comes to passenger space, and its lilliputian trunk is another flaw that owners won’t find on the Audi A7 hatchback. Still, Mercedes outfits the CLS450 with an electrically-enhanced 362-hp six-cylinder powertrain that’s as smooth as it is responsive. Every model also comes with all-wheel drive, a dazzling digital dashboard with a feature-laden infotainment system, and myriad driver assists. The 2022 CLS450 isn’t as well-rounded as the Mercedes-Benz E-class sedan, but it definitely commands more curbside attention.
For 2022, Mercedes is dropping the rear-drive version of the CLS450 as well as the 429-hp AMG-tuned CLS53. That leaves the all-wheel-drive, 362-hp CLS450 4Matic, which also adopts subtle cosmetic changes inside and out for the new model year. Along with a new front bumper and grille design, the previously optional AMG Line appearance package is now standard. It includes some high-gloss black accents and either 19- or 20-inch wheels. Inside, there’s a wider variety of leather and trim combinations as well as a new three-spoke steering with capacitive-touch functions.
Now that the rear-drive version has been dropped from the lineup, the CLS’s starting price is expected to rise to account for the newly standard 4Matic all-wheel-drive system. Last year, it was a $2445 surcharge. While Mercedes hasn’t announced pricing for the 2022 CLS450 4Matic yet, we expect its base price to be around $74,000 when it goes on sale in early 2022.
The Mercedes Benz CLS450 Rent in Dubai come with a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six paired with a 48-volt hybrid-assist system called EQ Boost. The setup provides output of 362 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. This powerplant got the CLS450 to 60 mph in a crisp 4.6 seconds and executed the run from 50 to 70 mph in 3.8 ticks. Both numbers are nearly identical to the 335-hp Audi A7. A nine-speed automatic transmission handles gearchanges for the Benz. Five driving modes are standard—Eco, Comfort, Sport, Sport Plus and Individual—and this allows you to customize the car’s performance to suit your preferences. With the CLS450, the feel from behind the wheel is smooth and calm, never frenetic.
To get an idea of its real-world mpg, we drove a CLS450 4Matic on our 75-mph highway fuel-economy route, which is part of our extensive testing regimen. This exercise revealed an impressive 36 mpg on the highway, which also matched the result of an Audi A7 we tested. For more information about the CLS450’s fuel economy, visit the EPA’s website.
The polished planes and sloping lines of the CLS-class’s exterior are reflected in its cabin design. The dash encircles front-seat passengers with a graceful swirl, and a quartet of circular air vents dominate the center stack. With its nappa leather upholstery, the overall look of the cabin is premium and undeniably glamorous. There’s seating for five, but the car’s swooping roofline takes a toll on headroom for those perched in the back. The CLS-class provides 35 inches of rear-seat legroom. That’s two inches less than you’ll get with the A7. Despite this Benz’s sizable footprint, there’s not a whole lot of room in the trunk. Cargo capacity measures in at a paltry 12 cubic feet, which is enough for just five carry-on suitcases. In comparison, the A7 serves up 25 cubic feet of space that swallowed seven carry-ons.
The Mercedes Benz CLS450 Rent in Dubai 12.3-inch infotainment display shares a giant glass panel on the dashboard with the sedan’s 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster. Among the standard connectivity features are Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Along with a touchpad controller mounted on the center console, Mercedes’ MBUX operating system includes robust voice-recognition software. The list of optional equipment includes a Wi-Fi hotspot, a head-up display, and wireless device charging.
