Mercedes Benz CLS took the design gurus by storm when it hit the markets four years ago. The concept of a four door coupe radicalized the coupe design language and created a niche market for itself. However, with competition catching up, CLS has been put under axe. The old CLS was based on the bygone E- class platform. And now, since the new E-class has been launched globally, expect CLS to inherit everything from it. It is believed that the new CLS will share platform and chassis dynamics with the 2010 E-Class.

Although the new SL prototype is heavily masked, the updates seem to have erect grilles, projector headlights, and exterior mirrors that has been repositioned. There are indications, too, that the interiors will be sporting a wider, GPS screen resting higher up on the dashboard. Benz watchers say this update is… Continue Reading »
