Mercedes-Benz's midsize coupe is getting a sporty face-lift that includes a new grille and bumper.
The mild makeover for the 2022 model year comes as consumer demand for cars continues to slide across the industry. With the increasing focus on sporty crossovers in the U.S., the CLS' days could be numbered.
The brand plans to jettison several car models in the U.S., former Mercedes-Benz USA CEO Nicholas Speeks told dealers last summer. According to people familiar with the plans, vulnerable vehicles include the CLS along with the coupe and convertible versions of the C-Class, E-Class and S-Class.
