2015 Mercedes-Benz CLS Facelift arrives with new design, 9-speed transmission

After showing the Multibeam LED headlamps, Daimler officially introduced the 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLS Facelift. As expected, the new car comes with a redesigned front section that consists of a new front grille, redesigned headlights as well as a brand new bumper. At the rear, we find redesigned taillights as well as a new rear bumper.

Both the CLS Coupe and CLS Shooting Brake come as standard with all-LED headlamps, while as an option the German manufacturer offers the Multibeam LED headlamps. As we said, the Multibeam LED headlamps is similar to Audi’s Matrix LED headlights but as usual, the United States will not receive them due to the rules that need separate high-beam and low-beam modes.

Each headlight features 24 high-performance LEDs, offering the best visibility on bends and roundabouts. The roundabout light is unique as it activates the cornering light function modules on the left or right before entering a roundabout in order to provide the best visibility. The headlamps are connected to the navigation system that provides the details of the locations of roundabouts along the route.

2015 Mercedes-Benz CLS shows its face, reveals the Multibeam LED headlamps

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLS looks ready to make its official debut as the German carmaker revealed today the first teaser photos. Mercedes-Benz used the new teasers in order to underline the new technology found in the Multibeam LED headlamps. According to the official press release, each headlight features 24 individually controlled high-performance LEDs.

Mercedes’ new technology looks similar to Audi’s Matrix LED headlights that made their debut on the facelifted A8 back in September. The bad news is that Mercedes-Benz will have the same problem as Audi and we don’t expect to see the Multibeam LED headlights in the United States due to the rules that need separate high-beam and low-beam modes.

So, how do the MultiBeam LED headlights work? According to Mercedes-Benz the headlights automatically illuminate the road with precision-controlled distribution of exceptionally bright light.

Kia is developing a new four-door coupe that will compete with the Mercedes CLS, according to an Auto Express report. This would be considered as the boldest model yet. It will be slotted between the BMW 5 and 7 Series when it comes to size, signifying a major move upmarket for the company. Peter Schreyer, who was named Kia’s design chief in 2006, hasn’t hid his desire for a halo model for the brand.

It has become apparent that what he had planned was a rival to the CLS, suggested at by the GT Concept. The model had made its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2011. Back then, Schreyer had said that each automaker has to have a halo car.

German brands dominate the coupe market. The GT is the first step for Kia. This car is targeted at a niche that Kia may fill and expect to do well in. Even if not all of the GT’s bold design cues will make it to the production car, this car is meant to securely place Kia on the design map. It’s expected to make use of a bold incarnation of Schreyer’s well-known ‘tiger-nose’ grille as well as toned-down variants of the blade-like front air vents.

This weekend we’ve witnessed the launch of the 2012 Bmw 6-Series Gran Coupe, a new car that introduces the Bavarian manufacturer into a new segment, a segment launched by the Mercedes-Benz CLS. The war is now starting, as everyone will ask now which car would be the perfect choice for them: the Mercedes-Benz CLS, the Audi A7 Sportback or the recently launched Bmw 6-Series Gran Coupe.

I think that when you are choosing a car, you look first at the engines, right? These days, every manufacturer works hard to have fuel-efficient engines but also powerful engines, especially German manufacturers. We’ll start with the petrol engines: the Bmw 6-Series Gran Coupe comes with a 3.0-liter six-cylinder in-line petrol engine delivering 320 hp (640i Gran Coupe), while the Audi A7 Sportback features the well-known 3.0 TFSI V6 engine delivering 300 hp; the Mercedes-Benz CLS offers a 3.5-liter V6 engine delivering 306 hp.

The 3.0-liter engine can push the 6-Series Gran Coupe from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.4 seconds, while the Audi A7 is pushed by its V6 in just 5.6 seconds… still, the Mercedes-Benz CLS is the slowest, with its 6.0 seconds. As expected, all the models have the top speed electronically limited to 155 mph or 250 km/h.

A thinly disguised Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake was spotted being tested. These are the first images taken of this model, which is expected to reach the showrooms about a year from now. The CLS Shooting Brake was spied outside Mercedes’ Sindelfingen R&D and production site in Germany. Mercedes-Benz chief Dieter Zetsche has confirmed it for production at Sindelfingen in 2012.

It was at the 2010 Beijing motor show that a concept version named ‘Shooting Break’ was introduced. The Shooting Brake takes its inspiration from the traditional custom-built, two-door shooting brake.

Mercedes is building up this model to be a stylish yet practical option to the Audi A7 and the BMW 5-series GT. It is included in a series of new design-led niche models that are meant to help solidify the company’s image. Also included in this range of cars is a smaller CLC Shooting Brake spun off the new B-class’s MFA platform.

KICHERER’s tuning experts have created a package for the new Mercedes CLS 500 Coupé, which by itself is already an impressive vehicle with superior power with 408 Ps and 600 Nm torque. What the engineers, designers and technicians did at KICHERER was to emphasize the model’s sportiness, both visually and in terms of performance.

A boost was given to the V8 biturbo engine by around 62 Ps and 90 Newton metres by using a software update and by installing a sports exhaust system.

To achieve 470hp, an original KICHERER PowerConverter (with an E certificate of conformity) was fitted in. As a result, its accelerator pedal becomes very responsive to the driver's commands. It features ex-works end pipes and a modern, nearly rectangular design.

Mercedes-Benz USA’s headline for a new marketing campaign was decided by tennis star Roger Federer's 7 million Facebook fans. This is part of Mercedes’ expansion of its marketing as it is about to launch six models this year. For one week last month, Federer's Facebook fans were asked to choose from the three possible headlines.

The chosen line will be used in an ad for the redesigned CLS that will feature Federer. What the fans chose was this line: “The Roger Federer of automobiles meets the Mercedes-Benz of tennis."

This headline will come out in print ads for the CLS beginning in June. The lines that didn’t make the cut were: "Record breakers unite" and "Agility. Style. Power. Roger is no slouch either."
