Mercedes-Benz CLS AMG boot space, practicality and safety

2005 - 2010 (change model)
Practicality rating: 4 out of 54.0

Written by David Ross Published: 6 June 2019 Updated: 6 June 2019

The CLS AMG comes with a sophisticated electronic stabilisation programme, powerful brakes, six airbags, and LED brake lights (for faster illumination). Also standard is Presafe – the company’s pre-crash safety system already fitted to the S-Class. It senses an impending skid and ensures the passenger seat is returned to a safe position, closes any open windows and tightens the seatbelts.

As well as the convenience of four-doors, the CLS also offers a large boot with 505 litres of space – slightly more than the Mercedes C-Class. It will carry four people and their luggage comfortably. There’s no middle seat in the back however – this is taken up by the central console which features a storage box. There’s decent stowage up front though with good sized door pockets and a large central cubby between the front seats.
