      Mercedes-Benz will launch the new four-door coupe, the CLS in India on September 8th. The CLS is in its second generation and straight away, the car looks more mature and stylish. The ‘cool’ factor has been the USP of the Mercedes-Benz CLS since the beginning. Although, the CLS isn’t the most spacious luxury saloon around, the sporty, coupe-like styling and the pillar-less doors made it one of the coolest cars to behold.

      The new 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS takes over from where the predecessor left. It adopts the very same basic shape of a four-door coupe with long snout and a short rear with the least of overhangs that don’t look gorgeous with those curves but also give it a more premium sportscar like stance. The Mercedes-Benz CLS is more of a style statement and is one the best cars around to let the world know that you have indeed arrived!

      The sporty new CLS gets a host of features to pamper its occupants on the inside. One the exterior LEDs illuminate the road upfront. The rear tail lamps too have integrated LEDs for better visibility. Inside, the THERMOTRONIC automatic climate control does the job of maintaining the temperature at the optimal levels of comfort. The big Merc comes with Mercedes’ COMAND APS with LINGUATRONIC i.e voice operated control system as well.

      Mercedes Benz CLS Class launched at 67.67 lakhs

      Mercedes Benz India launched the new CLS Class in India at 67.67 lakh rupees (ex-showroom Mumbai) at the Grand Hyatt hotel this afternoon. Mercedes Benz announced that it will launch two vehicles in India in the next few months.

      The engine that powers this uber cool automobile is a 3.5 litre V6 petrol with 306 bhp@6500 rpm and 370 Nm@350o rpm. The engine is coupled with a 7-speed automatic transmission to access the 306 horses seamlessly. The car rides on 17 inch rubber and offers space for four and big boot. The coupe like roof line which slopes towards the back might make the interior a bit claustrophobic for tall passengers however, Mercedes-Benz has provided features inside the car to keep the passengers occupied which might help turn their minds away from the limited headroom the car has to offer.The 4matic CLS gets the Harmon Kardon music system, full LED headlamps, 306bhp output at 6500 rpm, 3498cc V6 petrol engine with 7-speed auto transmission. For starters, the luxury sedan comes fitted with a 3498cc V6 petrol engine. The new Mercedes Benz CLS Class 2011 is the first car that comes with full LED headlamps.

      Mercedes CLS features include exterior LEDs and LED integrated tail lamps, Mercedes' COMMAND APS with LINGUATRONIC (voice operated control system), and THERMOTRONIC automatic climate control amongst others. The current Mercedes CLS is available in the Indian car market in petrol and diesel variants. The CLS 350 CDI diesel engine records max power of 224 bhp and 540 Nm of torque. The Mercedes Benz CLS 63 AMG is powered by a 6.2 liter V8 with 500 Hp and 630 Nm of torque.

      The new Mercedes will take on its competitors like the Audi A7 Sportback and the BMW 5 Series GT. The launch of the new saloon comes as the German automaker is trying to regain the top spot in the Indian luxury market. BMW has been heading the segment in terms of sales for the last few years. Mercedes-Benz has chalked out an ambitious plan to gain what it lost to its rival almost a decade ago. The launch of the new CLS is among the other launches planned by the company. Mercedes will also enter the entry-level premium segment soon.
