Car Tech Video: 2012 Mercedes CLS550

1:15 /

Chapter Two for the car that brought you the four door coupe.

Here's the new version of Mercedes CLS. The car that pretty much invented to disturbing 4-door coupe trend re-settled with today. This new version has a lot more aggressive look, a very vertical front reel, but it preserves the basic outline, even though it stretched the wheelbase a rather surprising 8 inches. Electric power steering will be new as our headlights that combine xenon and LED in road lighting for the first time. The big seller in the US will certainly be the CLS 550 with the new more efficient 402 horsepower V8 and automatic start stop technology, something, which American buyers don't normally equate with a luxury car. Adding to the efficiency will be all aluminum doors, both the skin and the internal frame at first for Mercedes. Once you open those doors, inside awaits a high trimmed cabin that also has a more aggressive look along with the outside. The command controller for on screen tech is revised slightly. Seven-speed automatic is the gearbox, also look for blind spot technology and an active lane departure prevention system. US sales begin middle of 2011 will get pricing closer to that.
