The Mercedes Benz CLS 2018 is based on the luxury car giant’s new design language, which has already been introduced in models sold in the international market. Changes to the third-gen Mercedes Benz CLS primarily include visual transformation. The insides have also been revamped for a plusher look and it now layers more kit for a completely luxurious experience. With these changes, the new Mercedes Benz CLS price in India undergoes a slight bump over the preceding model.





The Mercedes Benz CLS images showcase the new design language, which made its debut in the country. Among the tweaks to the Mercedes Benz exterior, it now gets a single slat grille, angular headlamps with LED units and arrow-like DRLs with LEDs.

The sides appear sharp with frameless doors, high-waistline and 18-inch alloys adding a sporty flair. Coming to the Mercedes Benz CLS colours options, customers can choose from a bunch of options.


The Mercedes Benz CLS interiors are well laid out with prominent changes made to its styling that reminds of Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

With a capacity to seat five individuals, it not only offers generous seating space but also packs in a host of goodies, such as 13-speaker Burmster sound system and 64-colour ambient lighting system with illuminated AC vents. The Mercedes Benz CLS features an electric sunroof, touch-sensitive buttons, and smartphone integration with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.




The Mercedes Benz CLS specifications include a 2.0-litre diesel engine, which puts out a maximum power of 245 bhp against 500 Nm of torque. Power is transmitted to the wheels through a nine-speed automatic gearbox. Interestingly, the engine that powers the model has been tuned to comply with the BS VI emission norms, which makes it stand out among competitors.

Powered by the 2.0-litre diesel engine and paired to a 9-speed auto box, the Mercedes Benz CLS mileage is decent enough and is in line with other models in the segment.

The Mercedes Benz CLS review gives a peek into the five-seat model’s performance and handling, which suggests that the model sprints from 0- 100 km/h in 6.2 seconds while attaining a top speed of 250 km/h.




On the safety front, the Mercedes Benz CLS features an array of technical aides. That said, the five-seater comes with as many as seven airbags, brake assist system, multi-beam LED headlamps and an air suspension, among others.


The third-generation Mercedes Benz CLS is a far cry from its predecessor. It has not only improved on visual terms but also got a five-seat configuration and a bundle of advanced tech. Overall, the new Mercedes Benz CLS is a great option for the luxury lovers who are willing to shell out a hefty amount.

Things to keep in mind before Buying Mercedes-Benz CLS

When buying a new car in general one must look for things like body panels that are out of line, or load bearing beams that seem to have been damaged. The next thing to check whether the paint is original or it has been repainted, a quick check under concealed plastic panels is a great way to check for unmatched paint. Another thing to check for is underbody rust in humid or sea adjacent areas.

A good way to check if the car has been rear-ended is by checking the boot. Flip open the spare wheel cover and remove the wheel completely. If the car was repaired after an accident the floor will have visible signs as the surface wouldn’t be smooth as it would in an undamaged car.

In the end, always remember to check for complete documentation including service records. Also, do check with the insurance company for any past claims, which will make you aware of the accidents the car has been involved in. Last but not the least, get the car checked from a trusted workshop before closing the deal.
