Mercedes-Benz has launched the 2018 CLS in India, at a price of Rs. 84.70 lakhs (ex-showroom, pan India). The 2018 Mercedes CLS is available with only 1 engine which is a 2.0-litre unit producing 245 HP and 500 Nm. With this engine, 0-100 km/hr comes up in 6.4 seconds while top speed is limited to 250 km/hr. This engine is the same one that also powers the C300d.

Looking at the outside, the 2018 Mercedes CLS has a very sleek look, because of its increased length. The four-door coupe has taken some well-defined styling cues that set the CLS’ looks in a different class. The vehicle can be identified from a mile away with its front grille contour that widens towards the base and a forward slanting section.

The 2018 Mercedes CLS has added on a number of driving enhancement electronics. It is updated with the latest assistance systems and route-based driver support. The cockpit is completely digital. The driver can configure the information provided by the car depending upon the need of the driver. The designing on the seats is exclusive to this CLS model, and creates a sporty impression. For the first time, the Mercedes CLS Coupe is designed to accommodate five people comfortably.

The ambient lighting inside the car can be adjusted in 64 colours and these can be changed according to your mood. High quality piping and transverse seams that blend effortlessly characterise the interiors. The easily switchable driver mode caters to your need to move from a comfortable to a sporty feel.

The Mercedes CLS is a niche car for the Indian market because not many people buy coupes over sedans especially if they want practicality. However, the luxury market is expanding and the BMW 6-Series GT is also catering to similar needs and both these cars will rival each other in our market.
