The Mercedes-Benz CLS is available with the AVANTGARDE Exterior or AMG Line Exterior, although both models will receive a new radiator grille, which features the Mercedes-Benz pattern, a louvre in high-gloss black with chrome inlay and the integrated Mercedes star. A spectral blue metallic paint colour is also available for the CLS.
The entry-level model has the AVANTGARDE Exterior as standard, with striking air intakes and a front splitter in silver chrome. The vehicle has a black diffuser-look insert and a silver-chrome trim strip on the rear apron. The entry-level model has two new designs for the 19-inch light-alloy wheels, a 5-twin-spoke or multi-spoke rims.
For the CLS AMG Line Exterior, the model will come with distinctive air intakes with vertical bars and aerodynamically shaped flics in high-gloss black. To enhance the design further, it will feature an AMG sill trim on the side and AMG spoiler lip on the boot of the vehicle. This version comes with two new colours for the 20-inch, high-gloss AMG multi-spoke light alloy wheels, tremolite grey or high-gloss black.
