The 2015 Mercedes CLS which was unveiled earlier this year made its auto show debut at the 2014 Moscow International Auto Salon (Moscow Motor Show 2014) today in the form of the CLS 63 AMG.

The 2015 CLS Class, a facelift, gets optional MultiBeam LED headlights.

The updated four-door coupe gets redesigned headlamps which can be specified with the new MultiBeam LED technology (regular LED headlights are standard). The grille is revised and now sports A-Class like diamond pin detailing (not in the CLS 63 AMG seen here). The taillights undergo a minor reprofiling while the rest of the car remains untouched.

On the inside, a three-spoke steering wheel and an eight-inch display are new. The new COMAND system reduces the number of buttons on the dashboard. The interior offers a choice of five colors and six trim and leather grades.

The refreshed CLS is powered by a range of 5 engines – 3 diesel and 2 petrol – all complying to the Euro 6 emission norms. The range starts with a new four-cylinder diesel variant called the CLS 220 producing 170 PS and 400 Nm of torque. The top-end CLS 63 AMG (seen here) gets a 5.5-litre V8 which is available in two states of tune – 557 PS and 585 PS.
