2018 Mercedes-Benz CLS Makes Spy Video Debut

We’ve seen scoops and read reports on the replacement of the current Mercedes-Benz CLS, and now it’s time to see it driven on the streets of Germany.

Wrapped in camouflage it might be, but it’s clear that the executive four-door coupe maintains its sporty profile and will benefit from redesigned front and rear ends that should be in tone with the brand’s new design language.

The upcoming CLS will be underpinned by the MRA platform that’s shared with the latest E-Class, and will be offered in both rear- and all-wheel drive versions. We expect it to adopt the E-Class’ semi-autonomous driving technology too, as well as most of the tech that’s available on the saloon/estate.

Not much is known about the engine lineup yet, except that a new inline six-cylinder from the facelifted S-Class is bound to replace the current V6, but it’s safe to assume that it will be joined by other petrol and diesel units, and probably some sort of electrification is planned as well. As for its unveil date, reports point towards 2018, but this has yet to be confirmed.
