2015 Mercedes-Benz CLS C218 Facelift Interior Spied

When the second generation of the gorgeous Mercedes-Benz CLS was launched at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, it was no longer like bringing a gun to a knife fight, but more like hand to hand combat.

We say this because the segment it actually invented and in which its first generation reigned without a single competitor suddenly became packed with the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe and the Audi A7 fighting for its market share.

While the CLS (C218) also received some backup from the Shooting Brake (X218), the car is now close to receiving its mid-cycle facelift, which will technically bring it more up to date in terms of technology.

Earlier we showed you the first spy photos depicting the upcoming nip and tuck programed for the CLS 63 AMG (C218), but now its time to take a peek inside and see how the interior will be upgraded.

As you can see, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLS facelift will bring a new three-spoke steering wheel that looks very much inspired by the one on the Concept S-Class Coupe and which will be shared with a couple of other upcoming three-pointed star models, including the C-Class W205.

The biggest change will probably be represented by the introduction of the tablet-like display screen on the center console, which is arguably a love it/hate it type of feature in modern Mercedes-Benzes. In the adjacent photos it is hidden behind a black piece of garment but its presence is obvious.
