At the Singapore Wine Vault last evening, Mercedes-Benz unveiled the third generation CLS 350 and CLS 450 4MATIC. Showcasing the brand’s trendsetting CLS 350 and CLS 450 4MATIC’s sensual, dynamic design, the third generation of the original Mercedes-Benz CLS embodies the self-assured sportiness and exemplary style in keeping with the pioneering DNA which combined the dynamism of a coupé with the functionality and stateliness of a family sedan.
Beneath its sophisticated exterior, Benz’s new CLS is an all-new five seater coupé updated with the new EQ Boost function and extra comfort control options, supported by a new range of engines driving the latest 2.0-litre CLS 350 and 3.0-litre CLS 450 4MATIC.
The CLS was a dream given form by Mercedes-Benz in 2004, creating a new vehicle segment which joined the sportiness of a coupé and the practicality of a saloon. Today, the third generation of the CLS builds upon the unique characteristics of the genre. The new model Mercedes-Benz CLS 350 and CLS 450 4Matic sees its arching waistline accentuated with flat side window lines.
“The new CLS is a design icon as the archetype of the four-door coupé. In line with our design philosophy of sensual purity, we have reduced its DNA in an extremely puristic way and at the same time emotionally charged it with elegant beauty” – Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer Daimler AG
The new CLS 350 and CLS 450 4MATIC enhances the new design idiom of Mercedes-Benz, readily identified by the clean contours and flowing lines, topped by a contoured grill that widens towards the base and a forward-slanting front section. What results is a new CLS offering a family-friendly yet highly emotive drive with exemplary sportiness and style coupled with comfort and thrilling new technology.
