Mercedes-Benz India is on a launching spree and has launched its 11th product in the Indian market this year. The German auto giant has introduced the 2018 CLS in India at a price tag of Rs. 84.70 lakhs (ex-showroom).
On the outside the 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLS has a sleek look and is quite attractive to look at. The car is quite long and has a coupe styling that makes it stand out on the road. On tape the CLS measures 5307 mm in length, 1899 mm in width and 1494 mm tall, while the wheelbase is pegged at 3320 mm. The car also gets a new set of 5-spoke 18-inch alloy wheels.
Mercedes has upped the game inside the cabin. The 2018 CLS gets a host of electronic enhancements which assist the driver. It gets a completely digital cockpit with route-based driver support and latest assistance systems. The cabin is plush with impeccable quality and a great design. The dashboard is adorned with wooden inserts while the AC vents are inspired from Jet turbines which look really cool. You get two large screens – one for the digital dashboard and the other one for the infotainment system. The new CLS can seat only 4 adults in comfort due to its sloping roofline at the rear which eats into the interior space and headroom.
The 2018 CLS offers 64 colors ambient lighting which can be changed according to your mood. There are also multiple driving modes on offer which can be changed according to the driver`s need.
Under the hood the 2018 Mercedes CLS is powered by a 2.0-liter diesel unit which develops 245 HP and 500 Nm of torque. Top speed is limited to 250 Km/h and 0-100 km/hr is breached in 6.4 seconds.
Being a niche product, the Mercedes CLS will not sell in huge numbers but will only cater to a select few customers who prefer coupes over sedans. With the Indian luxury car market growing at a steady pace, more such cars will be seen on Indian roads. The CLS will directly compete with the likes of the BMW 6-Series GT in the domestic market.
