Mercedes-Benz new CLS Coupe and Shooting Brake arrive in Ireland!

October 2014.

 

 

 

 

 

Revised versions of the iconic four-door Mercedes-Benz CLS Coupé and its five-door estate car sibling, the CLS Shooting Brake, have been launched in Ireland

 

Considered as something of a style icon, the CLS appeals to those who relished elegance and prestige wrapped in a design that oozes sportiness and style. As good to look at from the rear as it is from the front, the new CLS has lost none of its allure. It retains its long bonnet, slim window line with frameless side windows and the dynamic rearward sloping roof that give it its coupé-like appeal. Combining the elegance and dynamism of a coupé with the comfort and functionality of a saloon, it has been comprehensively updated with features that includes a more expressive, more sporty frontal design with a pronounced bumper, large air intakes and new studded radiator grille faced with an imposing star motif.

 

Along with its more incisive front section, the CLS gets an enhanced interior whose features include a new, free-standing head unit, restyled centre console and redesigned three-spoke sports steering wheel. At the driver’s hand are numerous technical innovations that deliver exemplary on-the-road functionality. Owners have five attractive interior colours, six types of trim and different qualities of leather to choose from.

 

In its promotional material, Mercedes-Benz places emphasis on the CLS’s lighting system – a package that includes an optional ‘intelligent’ Multibeam system that can adjust quickly and automatically to illuminate the road and carriageway edges without dazzling other drivers. Another feature is a ‘welcome home’ function that casts a pleasant blue light when the vehicle is unlocked.

 

In the line-up is a new entry-version CLS 220 BlueTEC diesel, an engine not previously available in the CLS-Class. Priced from €62,505 (ex works) for the Coupé version and from €65,000 (ex works) for the Shooting Brake, please speak to your nearest Mercedes-Benz dealer now for more information and to book your test drive!
