The CLS Coupé's exciting design and thrilling proportions were modified. As before, it has a long bonnet, a slim window line with frameless side windows and a roof with a dynamic rearward slope. The CLS Shooting Brake, too, has exciting proportions mainly derived from the CLS Coupé.

With its sportily low roof flowing back to the rear end and five doors, the unmistakably coupé-like vehicle provides up to 1550 litres of load space for luggage or sports and leisure equipment.

Thanks to striking LED High Performance headlamps with integral daytime running lamps or the optional new MULTIBEAM LED headlamps, the next-generation CLS Coupé and CLS Shooting Brake look even more dynamic. The dominant, new diamond radiator grille in black with one louvre is particularly eye-catching. With the optional AMG Line on the CLS 500 the diamond radiator grille has chrome pins. Equally new is the front bumper with large, pronounced air intakes, which visually emphasis the vehicles' sporty character. With a redesigned AMG front and AMG rear apron and AMG side sill panels, the AMG Line creates an even more powerful impression.
To the rear, both vehicle variants feature new, darkened LED tail lamps with adaptive light intensity. Mercedes-Benz also keeps other road users in mind here by varying the intensity of the indicator and brake lamps depending on the light conditions and speed so that they are not dazzled.
The iconic designs' new look includes a revised and extended range of stylish alloy wheels (43.2 cm to 48.3 cm, which is 17 to 19 inches), as well as two new metallic paint colours: citrine brown and magnetite black.
