The next generation CLS


Mercedes-Benz has comprehensively revised the four-door CLS Coupé. This iconic design now has a more incisive front section. As the interior has been enhanced even further, there are many new, perfectly presented details waiting to be discovered that combine modern luxury and a hand-crafted feel with a passion for sport. The vehicle's technical innovations bring exemplary functionality on the road. Futuristic MULTIBEAM LED headlamps take the lighting system into a new dimension. High-performance, precision LED modules automatically provide the best possible illumination, whatever the road and traffic conditions. Other leading-edge technologies include the nine-speed automatic transmission 9G-TRONIC, powerful new engines, intelligently networked driver assistance and safety systems, as well as an advanced multimedia system with internet access. In terms of performance, the AMG versions - the CLS 63 AMG Coupé takes pole position with an output of up to 430 kW.
When Mercedes-Benz launched the CLS ten years ago it established the four-door coupé segment, thus underlining the brand's leadership role in automotive design. For the first time, here was a vehicle combining the elegance and dynamism of a coupé with the comfort and functionality of a saloon. What is more, the CLS was the first vehicle to be available with dynamic LED High Performance headlamps, making it iconic in terms of its lighting system. In 2012 Mercedes-Benz continued this success by introducing the CLS Shooting Brake. This sporty five-door vehicle once again demonstrated the premium brand's creative design credentials. Due to the immense charisma of the CLS Coupé, this model has established itself as a style icon, and continues to stand out as exceptional in its segment.
Florian Seidler, Executive Director, Mercedes-Benz Cars South Africa: "We've produced iconic designs on wheels in the shape of the CLS Coupé. The exciting lines of the most recent models once again set the pulse racing. With new, high-tech additions such as innovative MULTIBEAM LED headlamps (which start a new chapter in lighting design), nine-speed automatic transmission and advanced multimedia system, these models also define a new technological leadership position."
