New Mercedes-Benz CL-Class generation presented

New Mercedes-Benz CL-Class generation presented

Mercedes-Benz is launching the new generation of its CL-Class. The German brand’s coupé has undergone a series of updates in terms of design also receiving highly exclusive appointments and cutting-edge technology. This new generation has been conceived focusing on fuel consumption and exhaust gas emissions for the exclusive high-end segment.

“The CL is the ideal ambassador for our brand. It combines in a particular degree those things that characterise Mercedes-Benz: fascination, perfection and responsibility. And with the new generation we have gone a step further, too – especially in the realm of efficiency. But in terms of design, safety, comfort and output, too – the CL shows the way forward: simply follow Mercedes,” explains Dr Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG.

The new CL-Class also includes innovative technology such as edge camera and radar-based assistance systems, which make the coupé a "thinking" partner of the driver.

The design of the new coupé generation is dominated by the short profile of the bonnet, the dynamic V-shape radiator grille and the curving headlamps. The front bumper also received a new look, receiving three air intake openings and a chrome trim strip.

The new generation will also feature a new V8 biturbo engine with BlueDIRECT technology delivering its power. This new engine will be equipped under the bonnet of the CL 500 BlueEFFICIENCY and CL 500 4MATIC BlueEFFICIENCY. This technology package includes a series of new developments, including the third-generation spray-guided direct petrol injection with piezo injectors and multi-spark ignition with up to four ignition sparks within a millisecond. The luxury coupé's package includes the ECO start/stop function and on-board voltage with kinetic energy recuperation in overrun mode.

The CL 600, with its 380 kW (517 hp) 12-cylinder biturbo engine continues to be the top-of-the-line model. This version is able to accelerate from a standstill to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds and now also complies with the Euro 5 emissions control standard.
