Mercedes-Benz current range deserves all of the compliments it is being paid. From the little A-Class right up to the SLS AMG, these luxury German automobiles are proving very hard to fault and are doing a good job of making BMW sweat a bit. It is that time of year again when various models get a nip and tuck and today it is the 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLS and CLS Shooting Brake that are in the spotlight.
For this year the CLS gets small refresh that includes some external tweaks. New LED headlights and more butch front bumper, featuring larger intakes, join with the latest incarnation of the Mercedes-Benz grill. This “family face” has been making its way across to all models for nearly a year. Inside the cabin remains relatively untouched but now possesses an 8 inch monitor for infotainment. Changes to the steering wheel roundoff the cabin. A new engine joins the range in the form of the 2.1 litre turbocharged CLS220 BlueTec which produces 168BHP and 295lb ft of torque. The CLS63 AMG gets a power bump to 549BHP.
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLS and CLS Shooting Brake will make their debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and go on sale this September.
