Mercedes-Benz CLS “Final Edition” Models Being Offered in Europe
With immediate effect, Mercedes-Benz is offering the four-door CLS Coupé as well as the five-door CLS Shooting Brake as special Final Edition models. The standard equipment of the models includes the dynamic AMG Line for both the exterior and interior. Further standard features include multicontour seats in black leather, tinted windows, a sliding sunroof and also high-resolution MULTIBEAM LED headlamps. Both the CLS Coupé and the CLS Shooting Brake have long been established among customers as style icons. According to Ola Källenius, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and responsible for Mercedes-Benz Cars Sales: “We’ve produced iconic designs on wheels in the shape of the CLS Coupé and the CLS Shooting Brake. The exciting lines of the most recent versions once again set the pulse racing. With high-tech ingredients such as the innovative MULTIBEAM LED headlamps, the nine-speed automatic transmission or the modern multimedia system, they appeal to both head and heart in equal measure.
The same applies to the new special models. As Final Edition variants featuring comprehensive, attractively priced equipment and unique details, they represent the pinnacle of the current model generation.
Visually the AMG Line underscores the sporty character of the Final Edition. This includes a diamond radiator grille in chrome, AMG front apron with striking, sporty air intakes, diamond lattice and chrome trim elements, AMG side sill panels and also AMG rear apron with simulated air outlets and chrome trim strip. A two-pipe exhaust system with angular tailpipe trim elements in polished stainless steel integrated into the bumper as well as 19-inch AMG multi-spoke wheels in a black, high-sheen finish create further highlights. As an alternative, 18-inch AMG five-spoke light-alloy wheels are also available to choose from.
Mercedes-Benz has enhanced the sportily styled interior further with a selection of fine materials. Driver and front passenger are accommodated on heated multicontour seats, finished in black leather accentuated with light-coloured topstitching. The upper and lower lumbar support areas, as well as the seat side bolsters of the backrests and the seat cushion depth can be adjusted to suit individual requirements. In addition, exclusive to the Final Edition is a sports steering wheel with flattened bottom section in leather with DINAMICA microfibre in the grip area and shift paddles in silver chrome. The brushed stainless steel sports pedals with rubber studs round off the sporty, high-quality character of the interior.
A sliding sunroof in the special models enhances the sense of spaciousness afforded by the CLS family. Heat-insulating dark-tinted glass, meanwhile, emphatically conveys a sense of exclusivity and functionality. As an alternative clear glass can also be selected.
The Final Edition models are clearly identifiable by means of a high-quality badge with “Final Edition” lettering on the wing as well as appropriate lettering on the front floor mats.
The technical highlights of the Final Edition models include the DIRECT CONTROL sports suspension as well as MULTIBEAM LED headlamps including Adaptive Highbeam Assist Plus. Each with 24 individually controlled high-performance LEDs per precision LED module, the MULTIBEAM LED headlamps illuminate the road surface and its peripheral areas quickly and precisely in a host of situations and are significantly brighter than conventional headlamps, without dazzling other road users.
The Final Edition models of the CLS Coupé and CLS Shooting Brake can be ordered in the complete range of paint finishes of the CLS family, and with six different trim elements and further interior appointments colours. Virtually all engine variants are also available.
