So it's just as well I have a ca. 500 kbaud connection at work to look at
the "huge" pages... :-)
Nice looking car, a bit like a large C-Sport, but what's the point (other
than charge more for an 'exclusive saloon')? To make the E-Class look less
The CLS has an overall length of 4.91 m and a wheelbase of 2.854 m.
The S is 5.043 m long and has wheelbase of 2.965 m.
The E is 4.818 m long and has wheelbase of 2.854 m.
So the CLS is a slightly extended E-Class with a modified shape... And will
it cost more than an equivalently-powered S-Class?
NB: To reply directly replace "nospam" with "schmetterling"
Yes, I know the page size is too big -
but I simply did not want to split
it into two halves.
No real, point - maybe to try add a bit
more elegance and luxury to the Mercedes brand,
I do not know.
The only _real_ point with the car is its
front end, the shape of the headlights -
the days of the four-eyed fronts is over
and this is a way to show the future _face_
of some Mercedes cars.
Also note the different styling of the bumpers.
Exactly - a variation of the E-Class.
More - but I don't know how much more (a E400CDI sedan
with 260 PS starts at ca. 58.000 Euro here in Germany.
I had just read about the Vision CLS in a magazine, and then I saw this thread
and looked at the pictures and text on your web page. Thanks again for all the
info you share.
Here are a couple of questions.
1) Is there any indication anywhere of the displacement of the inline-6
2) If this 6-cylinder diesel produces 265 PS, does this mean the 4-liter diesel
V8 will become more powerful?
I doubt I'd have easy time entering and exiting the CLS through the rear
doors. I'd hit my head each and every time when entering and exiting.
The current-generation Mercury Sable has rear doors with "plunging"
window frames similar to CLS so try it yourself...
