These types of headlamps combine the Intelligent Light System from Mercedes models using bi-xenon headlamps with LED technology.
Also, according to Mercedes-Benz, all of the engines in the CLS are new and help to guarantee an improvement in fuel consumption of up to 25 percent and a higher output compared with the previous models. Moreover, the CLS also premiered the use of the electromechanical Direct-Steer system.
The new CLS also boasts a host of driver assistance systems, headed by the Active Blind Spot Assist and Active Lane Keeping Assist.
Inside the CLS, Mercedes-Benz is offering a choice of five interior colours, five trim designs and three types of leather. Customers can choose between three exclusive types of wood: high-gloss brown burr walnut, high-gloss black ash and satin-finish light-brown poplar.
"Customers all over the world benefited from our bold move to launch a completely new vehicle concept onto the market," stated Joachim Schmidt, head of Sales and Marketing for Mercedes-Benz. "And with its exciting design, the new edition of the CLS also benefits from the fact that we are a whole generation ahead of the competition with our four-door Coupé."
Already available for ordering, the new CLS is priced from EUR59,857 for the 250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY developing 204 hp variant.
