The new Mercedes-Benz CLS, the third generation of a 4-door sedan with a body that more closely resembles a four-door coupe, replenishes the new Mercedes-Benz 2019-2020. The world premiere of the novelty is timed to coincide with the auto show in Los Angeles , which opens the doors on December 1, 2019. In our review, the new Mercedes CLS (2019-2020) – the first news, photos, video, price, configuration and technical characteristics of a faultlessly stylish car from Mercedes.
Sales of the new 3-generation Mercedes TsLS in Europe and America will start in March 2020 at a price of 68,000-7,000 euros. In Russia, the new Mercedes-Benz CLS model of 2020 will appear at the very beginning of next summer.
After experiencing a succession of generations, the “third” CLS moved to the universal modular MRA platform with a two-link front and multi-link rear suspension (with a choice of three suspension options: with conventional shock absorbers and springs, active Dynamic Body Control shock absorbers and Air Body Control air suspension), acquired an advanced system safety Pre-Safe, inherited the car from the Mercedes-Benz E-Class of the new generation, multimedia complex In-Car Office, ambient lighting salon with 64 shades of luminescence, changing depending on the temperature in the fat not a car.
Perhaps the most important acquisitions of the new Mercedes-Benz CLS can be safely considered a body with excellent design and a fantastically low coefficient of aerodynamic resistance at 0.26 Cx, as well as the newest diesel and petrol six-cylinder engines paired with the non-exclusive 9G-TRONIC transmission and standard all-wheel drive 4Matic. Later, the engine line will be replenished with four-cylinder engines, as well as versions with front-wheel drive. But eight-cylinder units auto, apparently, will not receive.
Another loss of CLS 3rd generation is the deprivation of a new car of stylish, but, alas, impractical body wagon, i.e. The new Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake will no longer be available.
The new generation of Mercedes CLS is based on the Mercedes-Benz E-Class W213 trolley (the models have identical wheelbase dimensions with 2939 mm distance between the axles). But the four-door sedan CLS stylized on the coupe looks more aggressive and predatory compared with the soplatformennikom.
Chief designer of the German manufacturer Gorden Wagener awarded the novelty with such flattering epithets that it’s time to compare the car with a beautiful woman. It seems to us that despite the front part of the new Mercedes body that demonstrates the similarity to the shark’s muzzle, in general the new CLS looks even less attractive than the new New Audi A7 Sportback generation.
In pursuit of perfect aerodynamics the creators of the new Mercedes-Benz CLS have deprived the car of almost all the protruding elements (even the shark fin antenna is not installed). Such a remnant turned out as a result, that there is nothing to stop at. Everything is simple and laconic … even boring. The brightest accents on the body of the car can be considered the front and rear lighting equipment, flaunting completely LED filling, supplemented in the rear parking lights with 3-dimensional graphics and crystal backlighting Edgelight.
The salon of the German 4-door sedan-coupe is luxurious and perfect. Not only in terms of the use of materials for finishing, but also, in an understandable case, “zatknet for the belt” of almost any of the competitors in terms of equipment. The salon is available for order in 4 and 5 local versions, and the luggage space will accommodate 520 liters of luggage. If necessary, the useful volume of the trunk can be increased by folding the separate 40/20/40 back of the rear row.
Workplace driver with exemplary organization and reference equipment placement. There is a compact multifunctional steering wheel, two color 12.3-inch displays (the first acts as a dashboard, the second serves as a multimedia screen and answers almost all equipment), a stylish front panel and a center console, comfortable first-row seats with expressive side rollers support and cozy rear seats. Interestingly, the front and rear seats are original and specially designed for the new Mercedes CLS.
Exclusivity is added to the interior ambient lighting, which can choose the possible lighting options from 64 shades, analyzing the operation of the air conditioning system.
In the basic configuration there are LED headlights and rear parking lights, 18-inch alloy wheels, Active Brake Assist and Lane Keeping Assist, ATTENTION ASSIST and Speed Limit Assist, as well as the PRE-SAFE complex, three-zone climate control and two color 12.3-inch display, the driver’s and front passenger’s seats with electrical adjustment, heating and ventilation.
In addition, Active Distance Control DISTRONIC and Active Steering Assist, Active Speed Limit Assist and Active Brake Assist with cross-traffic control, Evasive Steering Assist and Active Blind Spot Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist and a more advanced set of PRE-SAFE security systems PLUS.
In the photo, by the way, is presented a novelty from the exclusive Edition 1 series with black 20-inch alloy wheels, Nappa black leather interior trim with blackened wood inserts, analog IWC clock on the center console with an exclusive dial, background ambience interior lighting, including the illumination of the ventilation ventilators in the aviation style, the memory package of the settings of the front seats and rear-view mirrors, the Edition 1 inscriptions decorating the front wings, carpets, the center console and even flashing in ivetstvii on the main screen.
