Mercedes-Benz CLS

Segment: Premium Luxury

Drivetrain option(s): RWD

Powertrain(s): Gasoline


Redesign 2018

The redesigned 2019 CLS will be powered by Daimler's new 3.0-liter turbocharged inline six-cylinder engine, making it the first U.S. application of the automaker's new 48-volt electrical system. Mercedes is scrapping the eight-cylinder engine for the base U.S.-market CLS, which now will be called the CLS450. With the update, the CLS moves to a new platform -- MRA, or Modular Rear Architecture, the same platform used for the redesigned E class. It gets the latest suite of Mercedes semiautonomous driving features that debuted on the re-engineered S class. The design harks back to the first-generation CLS, which launched what's known as the four-door coupe segment in 2005. It will have a fifth seat for the first time ever.
