New Mercedes CLS shows almost everything

Stuttgart, 9. November 2017

And again, one wonders, why it takes a Mercedes CLS. But apparently, there is a large enough gap for this model. Where an E-class is not befitting enough, and a S-class is simply too expensive. So there will be a third Generation of this four-door coupé. And now, just a couple of weeks before the official world premiere at the Los Angeles Auto Show, 2017 (1. to 10. December), we got the 2018er-CLS almost fallen.

Design much smoother

Striking: The Form changes, not serious, the Design itself all the more. We see the now typical diamond Grill, which sits in the middle of two much sharper and narrow headlights. Behind the game is repeated: The somewhat chunky add a free call of its predecessor, replaced by a narrower tail lights arrangement. The almost Baroque language of forms in the second CLS Generation with your solid mounted kink in the rear fenders in the past. Is replaced by the smooth, very flat Design, the Mercedes, the new E-class coupe revealed for the first Time in its entirety. We expect a slight size increase with a little more wheelbase. In the case of the law pronounced Overhangs (especially the rear) it will stay, judging by the latest prototype images, but.

Give me Five

Images from the interior of the CLS 2018 not available at this time. One may assume, however, that he largely agrees with the E-class. Probably with some small Changes in the decor or the air vents, to give the CLS a small Premium Vorpsrung compared to the E-class. On customer request, the CLS will be offered for the first time, with a Five-seat configuration. The medium-sized rear-seat space is likely to be mainly suitable for children.

In-line six-cylinder and Performance-Hybrid

We come to the Mechanics of The new Mercedes CLS is expected to receive the new in-line six-cylinder Diesel and petrol engines from the S-class. Thus, the Diesel 286 and 340 will make HP. The three-liter gasoline engine with a starter generator, 48-Volt on-Board network and an additional electric compressor will bring it to 435 HP. Further down in the Portfolio, we expect the new four-cylinder Diesel and petrol engine from the E-class. A AMG CLS 63 will be due to the very similar nature of AMG-GT-four-door quite safe. An AMG Performance variant is likely to give it to yet. In the Form, presumably of the Mercedes-AMG CLS-53-mentioned in-line six-cylinder, likely to come with an E-Motor is 500 HP. After its Premiere in Los Angeles, the new Mercedes CLS will come at the beginning of 2018 to the market. Friends of the four-door-Coupé-station wagon-niche will have in the future, look around by the way somewhere else. The CLS Shooting Brake is cancelled due to low demand without substitution.(sw)
