What’s new about Mercedes-Benz’s new CLS 400? Jerrica Leong lists it out.

The CLS 400’s launch had taken a backseat next to the meet and greet with Formula 1 drivers Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg but the new generation CLS is no less dazzling than the drivers that night.
Let the CLS 400 take centre stage here and let it show us just what is different from the previous.
  • Mercedes-Benz has taken the CLS 400’s lighting system into a new dimension, the new MultiBeam LED headlamps provide exceptionally fast and precise, anti-dazzle continuous main beam and light up the road surface and its edges much more brightly in many situations.
  • The interior is now fitted with a new free-standing colour display in the head unit with a 20.3cm screen diagonal and a newly designed three-spoke sports steering wheel.
  • Hidden under the bonnet of the CLS 400 is a new 3.5-litre, V6 bi-turbo petrol engine which delivers a power output of 329bhp and 480Nm of torque, with numbers like that at low engine speeds this engine sets a new benchmark in its segment.
  • COMAND Online system is available as a standard package in the new CLS 400 to work with the new free-standing display in the head unit. There is also a new Media Interface for connecting an iPod and iPhone that comes as standard for all.

  • COMAND Online additionally comes with the LINGUATRONIC voice-operated control system. Digital TV and radio reception is optional.
  • A 3D hard-disc navigation with topographical map display, photo realistic 3D buildings and 3D map rotations as well as display of NASA satellite images along with basic telephony comes as standard with COMAND Online. In addition to the 3D nav system the head unit will also display an animated compass and Google Maps.
  • The CLS 400 also provides a 360 degree listening experience with Harman Kardon’s Logic 7 technology guarantees unmistakably authentic surround sound experience.
  • Of course as a Merc, the CLS 400 comes with the usual plethora of safety systems are available. Notably are those system that can be found on the S-Class like DISTRONIC PLUS with Steering Assist and Stop&Go Pilot, BAS PLUS with Cross Traffic Assist to name a few.
