Mercedes-Benz designers are raving about the look of the new model, giving the exterior the most flattering compliments, well deserved, however: the updated version looks really chic even in the photo.

The triangular head optics of the Mercedes CLS looks very controversial, since the new A-class will soon be equipped with exactly the same one. However, it should be noted right away that the new generation of CLS is incredibly charismatic and gives odds not only to the A-class, but also to the E-class, from which it receivedfront bumper shape.

A wide grille and a stunningly chic interior are the only things that cause frank admiration that car critics managed to express in their reviews of the Mercedes CLS.
