Maybe the midlife crisis makes you believe that you need a sports two-door, but you require space and of course, look great. A CLS can be an excellent choice between the comfort of a sedan and the beauty of a coupe.
Mercedes-Benz launched a risky model in 2004, when the four-door coupe craze was just beginning. Today, after more than 450,000 units sold, the CLS receives some touch-ups and says goodbye to some versions to leave a single trim level for 2022.
Headlights with different touches, a native AMG front bumper with modified air intakes and the grille with small three-pointed stars stand out on this vehicle. The wheels are 19-inch five-double or multi-single spoke; those of 20 inches are presented as an option and you can choose them in two shades. The paint is in Starling Blue Metallic color.
The changes inside are in coatings and clothing. The dashboard and instrument panel that Mercedes has used in its latest models is present, but the main gearbox is on the steering wheel, something already seen in the new generation S-Class.
This new steering wheel not only changes in design, it now adds sensors: the driver assistance package has the ability to know if the guider has his hands on the ring (there are two zones that register where the driver\’s hands are with the intention to assist in semi-autonomous driving ).
The rear-wheel drive version and the AMG were put aside, which used to be the CLS450 and CLS53, now only the CLS450 4MATIC remains, with the already familiar powerhouse, a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder, which has battery-powered hybrid assistance. 48-volt power supply that outputs up to 21 hp.
The total system is 362 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque that passes the force to all four wheels and achieves an acceleration from 0 to 62 mph in 4.7 seconds, and a top speed of 130 miles per hour.
The arrival of the new Mercedes-Benz CLS450 4MATIC is expected in early 2022.
