It's the original four-door coupé -- and now, the CLS is back for its difficult second instalment! Since 2004, a total of 170,00 customers have been seduced by the big Mercedes' blend of luxury and striking good looks. And it's inspired the likes of the Porsche Panamera and Audi A7. So can the all-new CLS pick up where its predecessor left off?

Ever since the first Mercedes S-Class arrived in 1972 it has dominated the
Luxury car sector -- until the excellent Range Rover came along recently.
So can this new one regain its crown?
The Range Rover sets the benchmark for the Mercedes to beat. And starting
at around £70,000, this TDV6 Vogue is our pick of the range. By comparison
the long wheelbase A8 3.0-litre TDI SE seems a bit of a bargain. At less
than £64,000 it's the least expensive car here.
The Mercedes S350 L SE costs two thousand pounds more than the Audi, but
the S-Class is undoubtedly the most luxurious. The Range Rover comes and
impressive second though, with the A8 third.
The S-Class is offered with range of seating options. This one has the
£4000 Executive Seat package but can pay even more to make them recline up
to 43.5 degrees -- that's more than in any other car.
The Audi doesn't have such versatile seats but in the back it's no less
spacious than the Mercedes. It may be big on the outside but the Range
Rover has 80mm less rear legroom than the two Germans.
Bearing in mind that these cars are comfy cruisers, the Mercedes is the
best to drive, followed by the Range Rover and finally the Audi -- on
account of its sporty edge.
Both the Audi A8 and the Range Rover are gadget-laden. You can get posh
stereos, high tech screens, surround cameras and huge sunroofs in those
cars, but being the newest the Mercedes has an advantage. It gets the
latest displays, most advanced nigh vision system and even hot stone
So the S-Class leads the field for technology as well as being the most
luxurious plus the best to drive and to be driven in. But there's just one
last thing we need to consider.
The S-Class's boot capacity is a respectable 510-litres, which is the same
as the Audi A8. However, the Range Rover has a 909-litre capacity and, with
the seats folded, can swallow 2,030 litres.
That means the Range Rover is the most practical and overall it's a better
luxury car than the Audi A8. The thing is though, the Mercedes S-Class is

But what is it like to live with and how does it cope over really long
distances? Is the new BMW M5 really the continent-slayer its predecessor --
