The 2022 CLS does not get any mechanical upgrades from the 2021 model, but the appearance changes are good. The most significant change in the vehicle’s styling is the new front end with an updated bumper, the new grille with a repeating Mercedes star pattern and a new rear bumper. These changes coincide with the decision of AMG Line’s aesthetic packaging standards.
Inside, the most attractive thing is the steering wheel. Now, it has a capacitive sensor and is wrapped in soft nappa leather. There are many new colors and decoration options for the interior.
CLS gotThen it’s back. MBUX is still one of our favorite infotainment systems, and has a powerful natural voice recognition function that can control various vehicle functions. The dual 12.3-inch monitors that are close to the dash are also back and have become one of the business cards of Mercedes’ current interior design concept.
As a modern Mercedes, there are a lot of safety technology and driver assistance technology on board. This includes route-based speed adaptive adaptive cruise, active lane keeping assist, automatic emergency braking and driver attention warning systems. Active parking assist systems are also available, which will allow you to automatically enter or leave parallel or trailing parking spaces.
The price and fuel economy data for the 2022 CLS-Class have not yet been announced, but based on past models, we expect it to hover between the E-Class and S-Class sedans-possibly in the $70,000 range. Mercedes is expected to have CLS in dealerships in early 2022.
