2011 Mercedes-Benz CLS shows more of its new design

2011 CLS

Mercedes-Benz has taken the testing to a new phase and the car is covered with just black tape.

As we can see the overall design has not changed much, though it looks like the car is a bit bigger than the current CLS. Rumor is that it is based on the S-Class not the extended E-Class like the current CLS.

Other notable differences compared to the current one are mirrors, which are mounted on the door not at the A-Pillar notch(still on the door). We can also see the new shape of lights(both are LEDs) and bumpers.

Power will come from the same V6 and V8 units as on the current generation. New addition could be a hybrid version that combines a 3.5-liter gasoline engine with an electric motor for a total output of 299 hp.

Other changes are all under the skin, we can expect plenty of new safety and luxury features so that the new CLS can take on the likes of new Jaguar XJ and Porsche Panamera.
