Hot on the heels of the new Mercedes SL facelift leak we have pictures and information on the facelift for the new CLS class. The pictures are for the AMG 63 model - itself only introduced in 2006 - however some of the basic changes will also appear on the non-AMG models.

Compared with the current model, the new model gets:

- New front-end with only 2 grilles instead of 3

- Different wheels, similar in style to the 911 Turbo. Upgraded from 18in to 19in

- Rear LED lighting

- Carbon spoiler

- Different exhaust

Unfortunately, Mercedes will not be increasing the power under the hood, which remains at 378kW (514hp) and 630Nm. That doesn’t mean we won’t see other mechanical changes such as improved brakes but we’ll have to wait for the official announcement to find out.

  1. I may be the only person in the world who thinks the CLS is overrated and this has done nothing to change my mind. It's not a coupe - its a compromised 4 door sedan and the outline still looks like it was inspired by a mid 90s Taurus.
