Mercedes CLS Final Edition

When Mercedes-Benz decided to sell the first generation of its sedan Coupe CLS no one imagined that it would become the success that was. Such was its impact that each time that have come to market new models in this segment, brands have gone even more stylized if fit their lines. In addition, we have example Volksagen Passat CC and now its successor, the Arteon.

Star House now on the market to the second generation of this impressive sedan. However, for the time being in the market already are working to launch his replacement in a matter of two years.

All data and details of this model today are unknown. However, as it is often the case, where all are doubts the rumors and Mercedes-Benz is no stranger to this situation. If the new CLS receives the E-class chassis, logic would receive all (or part) its mechanical range. That is, engines diesel and gasoline between four and six cylinders. In addition, could also receive an AMG version with a new block 3 litre turbo six-cylinder with an approximate output of 456 HP.

Best of all (within the bad thing that is) is that in the absence of this version in the range, it would take sense the arrival of Mercedes-AMG GT four-door that was presented at the Geneva Motor Show.

These rumors, if they are not wrong, will mark the evolution of the range of Mercedes-Benz models. The reason is that the Star House still wants to raise the bar in terms of premium models refers and the AMG GT garner him. We will be attentive to the news, but it gives us in the nose that this will be the end of the story.
