Mercedes unveils the facelifted CLS
More technology and more style
Born in 2018, the third generation Mercedes CLS is now undergoing the traditional facelift process. The programme includes slight aesthetic changes and an increase in equipment. The front end gets a more expressive grille and a revised bumper design.
The profile remains unchanged, with the CLS retaining its particularly slender appearance. The rear end features a new bumper. The AMG Line package adds dynamism to the overall look with the Panamericana grille, special skirts, enlarged air intakes and black lacquered elements.
The interior features new dashboard inserts and new seat trim. The steering wheel, taken from the S-Class limousine, is able to detect the presence of the driver's hands. In terms of equipment, the facelifted CLS features level 2 semi-autonomous driving, MBUX artificial intelligence and the ENERGIZING function.
The latter optimises on-board comfort by controlling various parameters such as the massage seat programme, ambient lighting and ventilation. In terms of engines, the coupé has two diesels, the 220d (194 PS, 400 Nm) and the 400d (330 PS, 700 Nm). The only petrol version is the AMG CLS 53 (435 PS, 520 Nm). All models are equipped with a 9-speed automatic transmission.
