Everything You Must Know About The 2021 Mercedes-Benz CLS. Mercedes enhances the technology on the 2021 CLS-class by fitting it with the company’s latest infotainment system and updated driver assists. The former materializes through the addition of the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX), which boasts predictive functions and is available with navigation that features augmented reality.
Likewise, the new touchscreen display uses a large touchpad on the center console versus the old infotainment system’s rotary controller. Every CLS also now comes with a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster. The Mercedes-Benz CLS has been given a mid-life makeover, gaining a raft of styling upgrades, a new mild-hybrid diesel powertrain and a limited-edition version of AMG’s range-topping 429bhp CLS 53 4Matic+. The interior now features a number of new trim options, with additional use of leather and a new steering wheel design. The centre console can be finished in a choice of wood finishes, and new colour options have been introduced for the leather seats.
The four-door coupé received a number of updates to its driver assistance and infotainment systems last year, so this facelift focuses on design changes, including a revised grille and bumpers. The entry-level Avantgarde car, for example, wears a redesigned front bumper with a contrasting chrome splitter, and it receives a black diffuser insert at the rear. The performance-inspired AMG Line car, meanwhile, gets bespoke air intakes, black trim details and a subtle lip spoiler. A pair of new 19in wheel designs is available across the range, while the larger 20in wheels can be painted in new colours. Also new for 2021 is the Spectral Blue Metallic paint shown here.
