The next generation CLS
When Mercedes-Benz launched the CLS ten years ago it established the four-door coupé segment, thus underlining the brand's leadership role in automotive design. For the first time, here was a vehicle combining the elegance and dynamism of a coupé with the comfort and functionality of a saloon. What is more, the CLS was the first vehicle to be available with dynamic LED High Performance headlamps, making it iconic in terms of its lighting system. In 2012 Mercedes-Benz continued this success by introducing the CLS Shooting Brake. This sporty five-door vehicle once again demonstrated the premium brand's creative design credentials. Due to the immense charisma of the CLS Coupé, this model has established itself as a style icon, and continues to stand out as exceptional in its segment.
Florian Seidler, Executive Director, Mercedes-Benz Cars South Africa: "We've produced iconic designs on wheels in the shape of the CLS Coupé. The exciting lines of the most recent models once again set the pulse racing. With new, high-tech additions such as innovative MULTIBEAM LED headlamps (which start a new chapter in lighting design), nine-speed automatic transmission and advanced multimedia system, these models also define a new technological leadership position."
