The Wait Is Over For The Next Gen 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLS! Here’s What You Have To Know
As a significant number of the members of the automotive community have speculated, the next generation 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLS is said to be closely related to the E-Class rather than the S-Class. When announcing its new naming strategy in 2014, the company said that CLS would remain as it is, which, eventually made sense as a 3rd generation vehicle, since it's close to having icon-like status, as the original was the car that launched the current fastback sedan trend. Now, as spy cameras have recently spotted the new Mercedes CLS, it seems that the latest model wears less camouflage, but is still heavily masked.
According to Auto Express, in the latest shots taken by spy cameras, the new CLS seemingly wears less camouflage but is still heavily masked. At the front part, visibly clear and slimmer headlights can be noticed while the front end slopes down into a flatter nose. As compared to the diagonal, tear shaped ones that are fitted to the current model; they appear to be horizontal, similar to the taillights on the S-Class coupe. With that, 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLS' beltline appears to have been raised more towards the rear than before and at the rear of it is considerably the most notable design change.
Moreover, as per Motor Authority, under the next gen's skin, the car should supposedly be twinned with the latest E-Class, but with the latest camera shots, it looks like the new CLS will be the longer and wider of the two. Apparently, experts say that this feature would eventually make sense as the model is meant to bridge the gap between the E-Class and S-Class. Car enthusiasts say the CLS' platform will be the familiar MRA design that currently sits in the C-Class and E-Class, and thus, allegedly making it the choice of rear- or all-wheel drive, a standard 9-speed automatic, and plug-in hybrid capability.
However, as of press time, it was found that the standard powertrain should be Mercedes' new turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-6, while above this should sit Mercedes' version of the Mercedes-AMG-developed twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8. Ultimately, experts say that a big reveal is about to take place in the second half of 2017 and, as what has been highly anticipated, the car is set to arrive in showrooms at some point in 2018.
