Next-gen Mercedes-Benz CLS set to make world debut at Los Angeles Auto Show

Mercedes-Benz has confirmed that they will be at 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show next week. Set to make its world debut at the annual auto show is the company's next-generation CLS.

Based on the teaser photo provided, the all-new CLS will have a vastly different front fascia compared to the outgoing model. Immediately apparent are the new headlight and front grill design. What also appears to be new on the third-gen CLS are the slimmer side mirrors and reshaped front bumper.

Other details about the new CLS remain a mystery though our spies have already spotted the car on two separate ocassions. Back in August, we were able to see the CLS' new front fascia which looks very different from its predecessor. Also new is its interior which appears to borrow heavily from the current E-Class' cabin design. Still, the overall shape and design of the third-generation CLS relatively remains the same from the old model.

Last October, our insiders were able to take photos of what appeared to be an undisguised CLS. It features a more cohesive and cleaner design that follows with the brand's current design language. We have yet to see, however, the new taillight design and the redesigned front fascia.

Engines are likely to be carried-over from the standard E-Class while a plug-in hybrid variant could also become available. Also, an AMG version with a more powerful powertrain is expected to be launched as well in the coming months.
