The new Mercedes-Benz CLS will make its world premiere at next monthâ€™s Paris Motor Show.Â Mercedes-Benz in 2003, created a new vehicle category with the CLS as it made its mark asÂ a new style icon, which for the first time combined the elegance and dynamism of a coupÃ©Â with the comfort and functionality of a saloon.
The very latest model will be among the stars that Mercedes-Benz will parade as the autoÂ show opens in Paris, according to a recent communiquÃ© by Mr. Mirko Plath, ManagingÂ Director, Weststar Associates Limited, the company that markets all Mercedes Benz brandÂ in Nigeria.
The new Mercedes-Benz CLS in his words, builds on the pioneering role of its predecessorÂ yet, is an entirely new edition as it points the way forward for the future perceptibleÂ design idiom of Mercedes-Benz, while at the same time, takes its inspiration from theÂ great tradition of stylish and refined sportiness which has always been a feature of allÂ Mercedes-Benz coupÃ©s.
He further disclosed that the exterior components remain as spectacular as ever, addingÂ that though the proportions now are the same, everything is different. â€œThe secondÂ generation of this design trendsetter has adopted a completely new look. What immediatelyÂ strikes the eye is the innovative front design, which is reminiscent of the Mercedes-BenzÂ SLS AMG. Visually, the radiator grille is not integrated into the bonnet but is formedÂ separately. This highlights the long, sporty bonnet even further.Â The grille isÂ dominated by the large central star, which underlines the carâ€™s relationship to the otherÂ coupÃ©s of the brand and also enhances brand identity. The large, elongated dark airÂ inlets with black grilles also add to the beauty of the vehicleâ€.
