The 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS's predecessor was a recent high-water mark of form over function with beautiful details and proportions that helped start the coupe/sedan craze. The 2012 sports a fancier interior and a facelift with dowdier features. Progress?
The first photo shoot of the new Mercedes-Benz CLS features "Brand Ambassador" Julia Stegner with the car as a tie-in for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, Berlin 2009. We think that sums up the car nicely.
