The CLS will come to the starting line in April 2021 with a sharpened and sportier design. The front end in particular, with a new radiator grille and bumper, demonstrates an even stronger and more dynamic expression of the four-door coupe.

With its comprehensive refresh last summer, the CLS was technologically updated with the introduction of the MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) multimedia system and enhanced driver assistance systems. The modernized Mercedes-Benz CLS celebrates its world premiere in April and will arrive in U.S. dealerships in early 2022.
With future drivetrain electrification, Mercedes-AMG combines superior performance and impressive driving dynamics with maximum efficiency. The development of future drive concepts will continue to benefit from the valuable experience gained from close cooperation with the Formula 1 experts at Mercedes-AMG High Performance Powertrains (HPP) and the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team. The cooperation between the three performance specialists will intensify even further in 2021, reflected, among other things, in the bundling of motorsport activities. Above all, however, the mutual transfer of knowledge also makes fascinating new AMG models possible, such as the Project ONE hyper car, which brings Formula 1 hybrid technology almost one-to-one to the road.
