PostHeaderIcon Mercedes-Benz CLS

Introduced in 2010, the current Mercedes-Benz CLS is getting a bit long in the tooth. Now that the German firm has already launched the new E-Class on redesigned underpinnings, it’s time for the CLS to get a makeover too. Spotted on public roads several times over the last few months, the third-generation CLS is still under camouflage, but on its way to an official unveiling by the end of year.

Not much is known about the upcoming four-door coupe, but the spy shots suggests that the new CLS will once again be based on the E-Class. The midsize sedan was redesigned last year and received new underpinnings, an S-Class inspired design, and the company’s latest technology. It’s safe to assume that the CLS will get similar features, while the styling appears to blend the appearance of the E-Class with minor touches from the AMG GT sports car.

The third-generation CLS is expected to retain the main features of its predecessors, which pair the strong, emotive stance of a coupe with the comfort and practicality of a four-door sedan. First launched in 2004, the CLS invented a new niche and enjoyed the glory on its own for around five years, until Audi, BMW, and Porsche developed their own offerings. Needless to say, Mercedes-Benz wants to stay on top with the new CLS and these new spy shots suggest that the upcoming coupe is up for the task.

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes-Benz CLS Final Edition

It was just a year ago that we learned Mercedes was killing off the CLS Shooting Brake, but as far as we know the next-gen CLS coupe will go on sale for the 2018 model year. Be that as it may, Mercedes has decided to launch a Final Edition of the CLS Shooting Brake. Why? Well, considering the CLS Shooting Brake performed poorly in the U.S. and China sales-wise, why not try to weasel as much money as possible out of the few who liked it, right? Furthermore, now that the CLS Coupe is also getting a “Final Edition,” it makes one wonder whether or not Merc will drop the CLS line altogether. We’ll worry about that later, though.

For now, we’ll talk a little bit about this final edition. According to Mercedes (despite the poor sales factor,) the CLS line has “long been established among customers as style icons.” Ola Kӓllenius, a member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and the person responsible for MB car sales, said, “We’ve produced iconic designs on wheels in the shape of the CLS Coupé and the CLS Shooting Brake. The exciting lines of the most recent versions once again set the pulse racing. With high-tech ingredients such as the innovative Multibeam LED headlamps, the nine-speed automatic transmission or the modern multimedia system, they appeal to both head and heart in equal measure.”

With that said, the CLS Final Edition models feature some several optional features as standard equipment to go with a few AMG touches here and there. So, let’s take a look at the Final Edition model and see what it’s all about.

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes-Benz CLS 500 PD550 Black Edition Stealth By M&D Exclusive

The irony of this aftermarket program getting the nickname “Stealth” isn’t lost on any of us, especially after one look at what M&D Exclusive did to the car. For the record, the car in question is a Mercedes-Benz CLS 500, a model that sits pretty high up there in the Mercedes hierarchy. You would think that a tuner would only build a low-key program for such a model, but that’s not how the minds of the braintrust over there at M&D Exclusive are wired. Instead of just giving the first-gen CLS 500 a nice retouch or two, it went completely in the other direction.

This is the CLS PD550 Black Edition Stealth, and despite what the name suggests, it doesn’t look stealthy at all. I get the whole intention was to create a military-inspired program and there are hints that point to that. But, the combination of the white, black, and orange camouflage body wrap doesn’t really say “stealthy” at all. Then there’s the engine modification. It’s impressive in its own right, but again, the extra horses M&D Exclusive managed to add to the car’s 4.7-liter turbo engine doesn’t inspire discussions of subtlety.

To be clear, this is an impressive program, especially for a car that’s been around for more than 10 years. I just don’t see why it’s called “Stealth” when in truth, it inspires so much attention it’s hard to take your eyes off of it. The program succeeds in that regard and, for what it’s worth, the name isn’t as important as the knick knacks that the tuning firm added to make the CLS 500 look and perform like the modern-day version of itself.

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes Kills Third-Generation CLS Shooting Brake

It is true that, for a while there, German luxury carmakers were going a little bit crazy with all of the different body styles being offered. There has to be a point at which inventing new niches becomes counterproductive, but some of the cars produced in this frenzy were genuinely appealing. One of these was the 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake, an attractive wagon version of the Mk2 CLS. Still essentially a wagon, this version of the 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLS had more flowing lines and appealing curves, hence the use of the name “Shooting Brake” to denote its role as something other than an ordinary wagon.

Plans were drawn up for a replacement to debut alongside the next generation of the CLS sedan in 2018, but it has now apparently been dropped from the lineup due to a lack of interest from the U.S. and China. Something like this was coming eventually; the boom in body styles would eventually run out of customers, and the Germans would have to take a moment to evaluate which ones were working and which ones weren’t, but it’s a shame to see this one get the chop when uglier models continue on in production.

PostHeaderIcon Filling the Gaps: Mercedes New Naming System Analyzed

Mercedes has already laid out most of its new naming scheme, but we noticed some obvious gaps, so we filled them in and speculated on each model.

Mercedes-Benz is planning some pretty major updates to the entirety of its product line. In a bid to fill every nook and cranny of the luxury auto market with some form of the three-pointed star, the company recently announced its intention to release eleven all-new models over the course of the next five years, which is in addition to ten new plug-in hybrids scheduled for release in the next three years.

To help sort through the glut of new cars, Mercedes has come up with a fresh nomenclature system that will be applied to all upcoming releases going into 2015. This system differentiates between vehicles via one to three upper case letters, which designate the car type (“GL” for SUVs/off-roaders, “CL” for four-door coupes, “SL” for roadsters, etc.) and core model series (A, E, S, etc.), plus lower case letters for the drive system (“d” for diesel, “h” for hybrid, etc.).

With this information in hand, we can breakdown the future model lineup with relative confidence, filling in the gaps as we go.

What new models will we see coming from Mercedes? Read on to find out.
