    Official: Mercedes CLS Facelift Released

    Quote:
    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 exterior mirrors have also been given a new look. 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 safety.

    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 rear, the new-generation CLS makes its mark with a new rear apron, new tail lights, as well as modified tailpipes. The centre section of the rear bumper now drops down further, while the additional 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 exterior mirrors, the rear indicators look 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.

    The high-revving, naturally aspirated engine now makes its presence known in an even more distinctive fashion: the AMG sports exhaust system's redesigned rear silencers deliver an even more captivating soundtrack through the two sets of oval-shaped, chromed twin tailpipes.

    Striking interior

    Re: Official: Mercedes CLS Facelift Released

    Temm, thanks a bunch!

    If I were in the market for a daily driver with four doors, this would be it; no question.

    ....even if AMG did steal the wheels off a parked 997 turbo

    Re: Official: Mercedes CLS Facelift Released

    Looks like they hired their local Russian mafia to test drive the car.

    If only it looked 3/4 as sleek as a CLS.

    Re: Official: Mercedes CLS Facelift Released

    LOL, Rossi.
    I guess you are right. That guy couldn't wait anylonger and made a safe bet and built his own!

    Re: Official: Mercedes CLS Facelift Released

    Really like the interior, but the front is disgusting. Headlights remind me of a Maybach

    Re: Official: Mercedes CLS Facelift Released

    I like the steering wheel, dont see any other differences ;p Then again I am not a merc lover.

    Of course it is...MB should take some insipiration from Porsche's design engineers

    Re: Official: Mercedes CLS Facelift Released

    Very nice shots!

    The interior is really breathtaking - love it!

    Re: Official: Mercedes CLS Facelift Released

    They should have fixed the headlights, they still look weird. Other than that beautiful car..

    In fact it has been very common for Mercedes to incorporate some cosmetic changes while leaving the car as untouched. Porsche used to do the same and it had some very profound reason: continuity of one product. Mercedes has been over the top with a couple of models in the recent past, they had to make some changes to a. keep the sales up and b. prevent these models from looking outdated.
