Mercedes-Benz recently unveiled its new four-dour coupe – the 2011 Mercedes-Benz CLS. An instant style icon from day one, the CLS coupe has spurred an automotive industry trend toward more eye-catching four-door cars - vehicles that blur the line between coupe and sedan.
The sleek new nose of the CLS is complemented by a more dramatic two-bar grill (replacing the original four-bar grill), with upper and lower mesh now finished in Atlas Grey.
Larger outside mirrors now feature built-in arrow-shaped turn signals, and new dual-five-spoke 18-inch wheels make the car even more striking. A new rear bumper with trapezoidal dual exhaust pipes and arrow-shaped LED taillights complete the fresh look of the new model.
The next generation 2011 Mercedes-Benz CLS's four-seat arrangement extends the full length of the cabin. Interior might look like the plush E-class or S-class. For the platform and mechanical hardware, the CLS will have the same as with other Mercedes-Benz sedans. This stylish four-coupe's front end has the notable upright grille and sectioned-off headlights; while the rear end has shapelier design.
Those stylish contours continue throughout the interior, which is complemented by an abundance of leather and wood. Its three chronometer-type gauges and two LCD bar graphs in the instrument cluster are accented by chrome rings and more wood trim. Four-zone climate control regulates temperature separately for each front and rear seat. The rear passengers even have their own digital control panel for setting a desired temperature and adjusting airflow.
As for the engine, the 2011 Mercedes-Benz CLS will be available with a new 3.5L direct-injection V6 with 292HP. Also offered are twin-turbocharged 5.5L V8 with 388HP, plus an AMG version with the all-new 6.2L twin-turbo V8 with 525HP.
