Next generation Mercedes-Benz CLS teased ahead of LA auto show debut

A company backed by Nest co-founder Tony Fadell is taking Andy Rubin's startup to court.


Mercedes-Benz is all set to reveal the next-generation CLS four-door Coupe at the upcoming 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show. Ahead of its global debut, the carmaker has released the first teaser image for the car, proclaiming its imminent arrival. The 2017 LA Auto is slated to begin later this month, from November 27 until December 10, and the initial 4 days will be the press days. The new Mercedes-Benz CLS Coupe is expected to be revealed on the 27th November.

Essentially a stylish 4-door coupe version of the E-Class sedan, the new Mercedes-Benz CLS is a bit more comfortable and a lot lovelier. While in this image we can only see a portion of the front of the new CLS, it still looks quite interesting. The new boomerang shaped LED daytime running lights to look really nice, and it’s something that we have already seen in some of the recent spy images of the test mule. The new CLS also gets a new diamond-pattern grille with single chrome slat and large three-point-star logo at the center. The headlamps are brand new and in line with the present styling of Mercedes-Benz cars and the front bumper also appears to have been redesigned. While there is not much to talk about the car based on this teaser image, the spy photos disclose some extra efficient like the new alloy wheels, restyled ORVMs with turn indicator, a sunroof and the car’s signature sloping roof-line, which is now swoopier then before. The car also gets larger front and rear overhangs and new LED tail lamps.

Powering the new Mercedes-Benz CLS will be new inline-6-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, along with a 4-cylinder turbo-charged engine for entry-level models. The flagship CLS 63 AMG is likely to be substituted by the all-new four-door AMG GT – but rumour has it that a performance version of the CLS could join the line-up, and will be named the Mercedes-AMG CLS 53.
