CLS vs. 6-Series: Performance

  • Engine: The new CLS 450 comes equipped with a 4.7 biturbo V8 engine. The 6-Series Gran Tursimo gets a 3.0L twin-turbo 6-cylinder.
  • Specs: Overall, the CLS 450 is more powerful. It generates 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque vs. the 640i’s 355 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque.
  • Transmission: For smoother shifting, both include an automatic transmission. Only the CLS 550, however, features a 9-speed.
  • Fuel-Efficiency: Enjoy up to an EPA-estimated 24 mpg city and 31 mpg highway with the CLS 450. The Gran Turismo proves to be less economical with its 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway rating. 

CLS vs. 6-Series: Safety Features & Technology

While both the CLS 450 and 6-Series have features like telematics, a rearview camera, and front/rear parking sensors, the CLS 450 boasts features lacking on the 6-Series Gran Turismo: 

  • PRESAFE®: If a potential accident is detected, this system tightens seat belts, closes the windows and sunroof, and adjusts headrests to offer vehicle occupants the maximum protection.
  • PRESAFE® Sound: Activating alongside PRESAFE®, this system emits a unique tone if a potential accident is sensed. This causes a protective reaction in the middle ear and protects your ears from the loud noises that come with a collision. 
  • ATTENTION ASSIST®: Using over 70 parameters, this system learns your driving habits and alerts you if you appear to be losing focus behind the wheel.
