Updated 2015 CLS-Class Sees Facelift over 2014 CLS-Class

Here at Mercedes-Benz of Easton, the CLS-Class is certainly a favorite of ours. Therefore, it was with a mixture of trepidation and excitement that we awaited our first look at the updated 2015 CLS-Class. Thanks to Left Lane News, we’ve now gotten that first look, and we’ve thrown our trepidation out the window but kept all the excitement.

The new CLS doesn’t just get the facelift we were promised, but comes with some interesting powertrain and interior updates as well. Let’s start with the exterior, though; the new CLS isn’t a next-generation vehicle, but simply an update to the second generation design. You’ll see changes like “a revised single-slat radiator grille inspired by the CLA-Class, a more aggressive bumper and new headlights that incorporate Active Multibeam II technology.” Inside, you’ll find a pop-up display screen—pretty cool and unique, if we do say so ourselves—to satisfy all your infotainment needs.

In Europe, the CLS will add new engines, both gas and diesel variants, to comply with fuel regulations. In North America, however, the base CLS models—the CLS400 and CLS400 4MATIC—will pair a 3.0L V6 engine with a seven-speed automatic transmission, granting the vehicles 328 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque. The new CLS will hit dealerships next year as a 2015 model.
