All-New 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLS Exterior Design Cues RevealedAuto News
All set to make its debut at the upcoming 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, Mercedes-Benz has released a teaser video of the 2019 CLS; revealing a few of the car’s design cues that preview the brand’s new design philosophy.
From what we can see, the CLS is retaining its signature fastback roofline, giving it a coupe-like shape.
Its front fascia on the other hand features the new, more angular LED headlights inspired by the Concept A Sedan, the ‘diamond’ grille similar to the current A-Class, as well as a more fluid looking hood.
The taillights have also been redesigned to be thinner and more angular. As for the wheels, Mercedes-Benz has kept things simple with a five double-spoke design.
Sharing the same platform as the W213 E-Class, the new CLS could come with a host of powerplants ranging from turbocharged four-cylinder petrol and diesels, inline-sixes, and maybe even the 603bhp turbocharged AMG V8 mill.
Inside, the car gets the same dashboard as the E-Class with jet turbine-inspired air-cond vents and the 12-inch display which stretches half-way across the dashboard.
No technical details have been revealed yet, but we are sure that the folks at Mercedes-Benz will bombard us with all the details we need about the car once the L.A Auto Show opens its doors in two more days.
