Mercedes is giving a sneak peek of what to expect when the 2015 CLS-Class debuts at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
The facelifted CLS is expected to gain numerous changes as part of its mid-cycle refresh including new Multibeam LED headlights. The German automaker put a focus on this new technology in its preview photos, which features a dazzle-free main beam, headlights that turn to illuminate a corner before it’s reached and a system that connects to the car’s navigation software to illuminate roundabouts.
“With MULTIBEAM LED technology the headlamps now are able to react even more quickly, more precisely and individually to changing traffic conditions,” said Daimler board member Thomas Weber. “On top of this, there are expanded functions of which a driver will become directly aware, such as anticipatory camera-based curve recognition with the active light function. With such features Mercedes-Benz once again is demonstrating its role as an innovation leader in the automobile industry.”
Visually, it appears that the CLS being teased sports an AMG Sport Package with a front bumper similar to the styling on the CLA AMG model. Expect the same 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 found in the C- and E-Class making 329 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque and – possibly – a new nine-speed automatic transmission.
