A new teaser video for the 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS surfaced. The clip now gives us a clear view of what to expect from the exterior of the car when it is showcased at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show.
The video partially reveals the front, sides, rear and wheels of the upcoming CLS. From there, we could see that the vehicle features a more refined exterior that seems heavily inspired by the Concept A-Class sedan.
The advanced headlamps of the car particularly adopted the design cues shown in the A-Class concept. The taillights of the auto appear thinner than its predecessor too. The lighting system is similar to the ones found in the latest coupes and cabriolets of the C-Class, E-Class and S-Class.
The closeup of the 2019 CLS in the teaser also takes us to its new trapezoidal grille design. A new blacked out mesh pattern sits in the background of the chrome three-pointed star logo flanked by chrome strips.
Furthermore, the video highlights the swooping roofline of the CLS that makes it distinct from its closest relative, which is the E-Class. Overall, the design of the CLS makes it worthy of its position between the E-Class and the S-Class.
The earlier teaser photos of the new CLS gives us a glimpse of its interior. The instrument cluster of the car is like the current E-Class.
Although details about the powertrain of the CLS are not confirmed at the moment, we expect it to get new engines including a 3.0-liter inline-six. A plug-in hybrid unit is rumored as well.
