Bright colors made the interior of the Vision CLS inviting and cheerful. Wood and leather were much in evidence. The dashboard and A-pillars were finished in natural leather processed in accordance with traditional methods. Soft leather upholstery was also used on the seats and door panels. Hand-finished oak veneer meanwhile attracted the eye with a light color and an interesting, open-pored grain, while the roof, largely made of glass, let in a lot of light and added to the pleasant sense of spaciousness.

The interior space of the Vision CLS set new standards for a coupe. The distance of 83 centimeters between the front and rear seats put Vision CLS firmly in sedan territory. The headroom in the rear of 92 centimeters went well beyond the usual dimensions for a coupe of this size. Trunk capacity too, at 470 liters (VDA norm), was significantly more than that offered by other coupes and some sedans, making the Vision CLS a fully-fledged tourer for four.
