We are not supposed to be seeing this yet but thanks to the Australian “motoring.com.au” that leaked the photos ahead of the official launch.
It’s coming with an inline-6 twin-turbo 3.0-liter engine with minimum of 360 hp. It also gets a 48-volt hybrid assist.
According to what we’ve gathered, the 2018 Benz CLS will come as a genuine five-seater for the first time, dropping the former four-seat layout. The occupants shall take their seats on the 40:20:40 split folding rear bench with decent headroom this time and will benefit from the 520-liter boot space reserved for their luggage.
