Priced at 1,399 million IDR (INR 70.98 lakhs).
Mercedes-Benz Indonesia has presented the India-bound Mercedes CLS facelift at the Indonesia International Motor Show 2014 (IIMS 2014).
In the CLS 400 AMG trim, the vehicle is identified by the Multibeam LED headlamp, tweaked pockets and the diamond grille. The Multibeam headlamp can detect upcoming bends and illuminate them in advance, while the navigation system can detect roundabouts and instruct the headlight beam to give optimal visibility.
Powering the CLS 400 AMG is the 2,996 cc turbocharged, direct injection V6 engine that delivers 333 bhp at 5,250-6,000 rpm and 480 Nm at 1,600-4,000 rpm and with acceleration from 0-100 km/h in just 5.3 seconds. It is paired to a seven-speed automatic transmission (7G-TRONIC) and has a top speed of 250 km/h.
The interior has received very soft changes with a new eight-inch free-standing color display and a new three-spoke steering wheel.
Mercedes India sells the CLS in the 250, 350, 400 and 500 trim levels. Expect the new CLS to arrive here early next year.
