Mercedes-Benz this week unveiled the 2019 version of its CLS model, which will come to market late in the 2018 calendar year. It was unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Updates include reduced lines, a grille contour that widens towards the base and a forward-slanting front section, plus wide, low-set headlights and two-section taillamps.
The vehicle features a new inline six-cylinder engine and is the first vehicle in the Mercedes-Benz lineup with 48-volt technology with ISG, which they claim offers increased efficiency and comfort.  The all-new four-door coupe will also seat five passengers for the first time.

This is the third generation of the CLS, which first came around in 2003. The in-line six-cylinder engine is completely new, and offers 362 hp, in addition to a 21 hp boost from the integrated starter- generator. Also included are the latest infotainment generation with Inductive Wireless Phone Charging with NFC pairing.

Here are the numbers on the new CLS450 (courtesy of Mercedes-Benz):
