Merc drives in up­dated CLS

Auto Today - - Update! | Domestic News -

MERCEDES-BENZ In­dia launched the third gen­er­a­tion CLS in In­dia at a price of Rs. 84.7 lakh (ex-show­room, In­dia). The new gen­er­a­tion CLS will take on the likes of Audi A7 and BMW 6 GT. The new coupe look ex­tremely sleek in its de­sign and will most cer­tainly get all the at­ten­tion once on road. The four-door coupe re­tains the slop­ing roofline, frame­less door while the Multi­beam LED head­lamps and a new grille de­sign dif­fer­en­ti­ate it from its pre­de­ces­sor. At the back, the CLS gets the dis­tinc­tive coupe tail lamp clus­ter with hor­i­zon­tal set tail lamps and a short stubby boot. It also gets a set of split 5-spoke 18-inch al­loy wheels. At the heart of the new CLS is a BS-VI CLS300 ver­sion, which is a 2.0-litre diesel en­gine that churns out 242bhp and 500Nm cou­pled to 9-speed dual clutch au­to­matic gear­box. The CLS can go from stand­still to 100kmph in 6.2 sec­onds be­fore reach­ing a top speed of 250kmph.
