Mercedes-Benz CLS280 details:
Mercedes-Benz is making the CLS even more irresistible. This one-of-a-kind 4-door coupé - the pioneer of a whole new auto segment - has now been fine-tuned to give it added appeal. The new entry-level model version, the CLS 280 with its sophisticated V6 performance unit, develops 170 Kw/231 hp. Meanwhile, the main model in the range - the CLS 63 AMG with its 378 Kw/514 hp AMG 6. 3-litre V8 motor - now comes with 19-inch AMG light-alloy wheels plus a new AMG sports exhaust system.
Understated but masterly neatly sums up the result of the restyling programme for the CLS. At the front, it is the modified radiator grille that stands out, with two louvres now instead of the previous four. The diamond-shaped, three-dimensional grilles painted in atlas grey that cover the air intakes project an even greater air of self-assurance as well as adding further emphasis to the vehicle's width. The look mirrors have also been given a new exterior. The LED side indicator lamps that are built into them are arranged in the form of an arrow to produce a most eye-catching effect, especially in the dark. The mirror surface has furthermore been enlarged by 32 per cent to afford a clearer view of the traffic behind and thereby boost active security.
The side view is dominated by new, attractively styled light-alloy wheels, measuring either 17 inches (CLS 280, CLS 320 CDI and CLS 350 CGI) or 18 inches (CLS 500) in diameter. When viewed from the back, the new-generation CLS makes its mark with a new back apron, new tail lights, as well as modified tailpipes. The centre section of the back bumper now drops down further, while the add-on light-catching contour running along it adds to the impression of breadth. This is further emphasised by the exhaust tailpipes, which are trapezoidal in shape, and not oval as before. LED technology is now deployed for the tail lights: the brake lamps, tail lamps and indicator lamps all make use of the extra-fast-reacting light-emitting diodes. Just like the side indicators in the look mirrors, the back indicators exterior like arrows when they light up, which is particularly striking in the dark. The same is true of the optical fibres at the side, which are always activated whenever the low-beam headlamps are switched on. A new deactivation function for the low-beam headlamps when the ignition is switched off helps to optimise energy management.
