A new teaser video for the Mercedes-Benz CLS 2019 has appeared. The clip now gives us a clear idea of what to expect from the outside of the car when it debuts at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show.
The video partially shows the front, side, rear and wheels of the upcoming CLS. From there, we could see that the vehicle has a more refined exterior that appears to be heavily inspired by the Concept A-Class sedan.
In particular, the car’s advanced headlights have adopted the design features shown in the A-Class concept. The car’s taillights also appear thinner than on the predecessor. The lighting system is similar to that of the latest coupés and convertibles in the C-Class, E-Class, and S-Class.
The close-up of the 2019 CLS in the teaser also leads us to its new trapezoidal grille design. A new, darkened mesh pattern is in the background of the three-pointed chrome star logo, which is flanked by chrome strips.
In addition, the video highlights the roofline of the CLS, which sets it apart from its closest relative, the E-Class. Overall, the design of the CLS makes its position between the E-Class and the S-Class worthy.
Although details of the CLS’s powertrain are not currently confirmed, we expect it to receive new engines including a 3.0-liter in-line six. It is also rumored to be a plug-in hybrid unit.
