Agreed. And I'm tall. I didn't like the car that much, and it's more or less a CL and S klasse.
Another unfortunate thing about the CLS is that it doesn't have the luxury or technology that is available on either the S-Class or CL. It's a nicely appointed car for sure; however, both the S and CL offer so much more. In my view the CLS is a well appointed E-Class.
