Next-gen Mercedes-Benz CLS spotted testing

Next-gen Mercedes-Benz CLS spotted testing

What you see in the pictures is the upcoming Mercedes-Benz CLS being tested in Germany.

Despite being heavily camouflaged, the CLS’ sloping silhouette gives its identity away easily. Sources reveal that the similarity with the E-Class Coupe are more than what meets the eye, and the next CLS may also borrow the platform and powertrains from the E-Class. This will comprise of a series of petrol and diesel motors with capacities that include four, six and eight cylinder powerplants. 

Reports also state that an AMG variant is inevitable. An obvious option would be to source the AMG E63 S’ 4.0-litre V8 motor that makes 612bhp along with 850Nm of torque. Also, as the next CLS shares the same underpinnings as the E-Class, a plug-in hybrid could also make it to the line-up. In July 2016, the brand revealed their product roadmap, but the expected debut for the next CLS-Class was given a pass for the year 2017. This could ideally mean that the upcoming CLS may be introduced in 2018. 

Stay tuned to CarWale for more news on Mercedes-Benz’ plans for the next CLS-Class.
