The Mercedes-Benz CLS Final Edition has debuted, marking the beginning of the end for the current version of the D-segment luxury car.
The current CLS has been with us in its current form since 2012, making it one of the more dated models in Mercedes’ extremely up-to-date lineup. The automaker will replace the car with an all-new version in 2018, but not before sending the current version off in typical Mercedes ‘Final Edition’ fashion.
In Final Edition form, the CLS Coupé and Shooting Brake comes standard with AMG Line equipment, which adds a chrome radiator grille, an AMG front bumper, AMG side sill panels and an AMG rear bumper. A two-outlet exhaust, 19-inch five-spoke AMG wheels, Final Edition badges and chrome trim elements round out the appearance changes.
Standard interior equipment on the CLS Final Edition includes black leather heated multicontour seats, a sports flat bottom steering wheel with microfibre trim, silver chrome shift paddles and brushed stainless steel sports pedals. A sliding sunroof, Direct Control electronically adjustable suspension and LED headlamps are also standard.
Mercedes says the complete range of CLS paint finishes is available on Final Edition models, along with virtually all CLS engine options. The Final Edition trim level tacks €8211 onto the €54680.50 asking price of the base CLS.
