With many people saying that the new-generation CLS looks a lot better in person than it does in pictures, here’s our chance to see more of the car in its natural environment.
This CLS 450 version was spotted near Stuttgart and thanks to walkoART, we get to see it next to multiple other Mercedes-Benz models, including a CLA Shooting Brake, which is actually taller than the new CLS.
In 450 4MATIC guise, the new CLS utilizes a 367 PS (362 HP) and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) 3.0-liter petrol engine, and is priced from €70,906 ($83,445) in Germany.
It will do 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.8 seconds and has a combined fuel consumption of 7.5 liters/100 km, which comes down to about 31.3 mpg US, or 37.6 mpg UK.
If we were to give the 2019 CLS the benefit of the doubt, we should be willing to get really up close and personal with it before we draw any final conclusions regarding its styling – particularly at the rear. Otherwise, this short clip does very little in helping it look more appealing than it did at the LA Auto Show earlier this month.
