2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS
The centerpiece of the Mercedes-Benz stand in Paris is a new CLS.
The CLS gets a new look that points the way forward for the future styling of the luxury brand's cars. The elegant CLS is based on the E class but is longer, with the new generation getting a wheelbase 8 inches longer than the current model. The sedan created a new segment for four-door coupe-styled sedans when it was launched in 2004.
The CLS will go on sale in Europe in November. U.S. sales begin in mid-2011.
