At the Los Angeles Auto Show debuts the 2019 Mercedes CLS. The facelift of the four sports doors is adorned with a revised optical group and an unprecedented plank, similar to that used on class E and S. Soon all technical specifications will be made known
We are in front of a knife blade by Sous Chef, increasingly sharpened as time passes. The Mercedes CLS 2019 debuts with sophisticated lines, aerodynamics (the Cx is 0.27) and unfailingly elegant. At first glance you can see immediately the most decisive change, also fogging of the new Class A that will be presented shortly.
The front optical groups are now narrower, a recipe that is exported even to the rear where the cut of the headlight is replicated in the shape of the terminals. Really very well managed the rear window, so inclined not to need-as it goes to fashion on today’s premium-wiper brush. On the other hand, the cameras are replacing the human eye, besides the fact that the owners of this jewel will be able to save (!) on the replacement of the brushes.
To change less-fortunately, given the success and the different imitations-is the front grille of the radiator as well as the overall line of the car. The new Mercedes CLS has flagship measurements, enough for a gamble with Porsche Panamera and Audi A7: The previous version was 4.94 meters long, 1.88 wide and 1.42 high. Playmate numbers that with the CLS 2018 will grow further.
The interior returns the philosophy set by the new class S and Class E: The central plank becomes one with the instrumentation, covered however-contrary to the class A 2018-by a sunshade. Probably the menus will be highly customizable as it dictates the experience of smartphones.
Nice and clean the central tunnel, as well as the luminous fascia that runs between wood inserts and precious materials. Mercedes, with the new 2019 Mercedes CLS, points to markets like the Chinese one where the owner sits behind and at the same time as the European in which on the contrary-the customer wants to drive. This says a lot about the level of comfort and luxury that has been profused throughout the cockpit and on the performance that can be expected from the car.
