 The second generation CLS will be brought in as a CBU and will be priced around Rs. 70 lakhs. It will be powered by a 3.5-liter, V6 petrol motor which produces 306 BHP of power and reaches 100 kmph in just 6.1 seconds.

The CLS 350 has a top speed of 250 kmph which is electronically limited. The Mercedes CLS will rival the recently launched Audi A7.

A distinguishing feature comes in the form of the full LED headlamps, which are the world’s first to offer all of the dynamic light functions using LED technology. A total of 71 LED’s provide an unmistakable appearance as well as a significantly enhanced view of the road compared with previous systems.
