2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS Prototype Spotted
Mercedes-Benz was recently spotted testing the new 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS. This prototype will be a welcome addition to the Mercedes-Benz lineup. The current CLS has been on sale since the 2012 model year.
Though the CLS is closely related to the E-Class rather than the S-Class, Mercedes-Benz doesn’t have plans to rename the new vehicle as a CLE as some rumors have suggested. Mercedes-Benz announced a new naming strategy in 2014. At that time, they stated that the CLS name would go unchanged. Experts believe this is a wise decision because of the icon-like status of the vehicle. The original CLS was the car that launched the coupe-like sedan trend.
The new vehicle appears to be longer and wider than the previous model. The car has been said to be the bridge between the E-Class and S-Class, so these adjustments are fitting. The platform that will be used is similar to that of the C-Class and E-Class. This means it has the choice of rear or all wheel drive and a standard 9-speed automatic transmission. The car also has been said to have a plug-in hybrid capability. Different markets will have different powertrain options, like a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-6 or a AMG-developed twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8.
Car enthusiasts expect the new Mercedes-Benz CLS will arrive in 2018 as a 2019 model, but details have yet to be confirmed.
