A prototype of the updated Mercedes CLS was seen on tests

The journalists shared photos from tests of the practically uncoupled Mercedes-Benz CLS prototype. Essentially, the prototype seen had the same body panels as the current Mercedes CLS, with the exception of the bumper.

A couple of hours ago, foreign publications published photos from CLS tests. As in previous images, Mercedes used a fairly standard CLS prototype as only the front bumper is camouflaged.

We can’t help but wonder if this is really a prototype of the new CLS or if we have an early test sample of another model. Or maybe a new engine is being tested with this car?

The test car sits suspiciously low to the ground and looks pretty much the same as a regular CLS 450 or CLS 400d. Notably, this prototype German sedan had all the body panels found on the current version of the CLS. Well, maybe besides that hidden bumper.

Although images showing the interior of the mysterious novelty are not available this time around, attentive readers will notice a green wire at the base of the A-pillar that appears to hold some kind of device in place. In addition, Mercedes used a suction cup window hook for other equipment located to the right of the rearview mirror. The rest of the interior seems to be standard and it seems that the engineers of the German brand did not bother to hide it at all.

Only time will tell if this is really an updated version of the CLS model or if Mercedes is preparing something else. The stylish sedan was presented almost three years ago, so, most likely, it will still be updated in a year.

Not so long, AutoTimesNews wrote that an extreme off-road vehicle was made from Mercedes-Benz EQC. Mercedes-Benz showed the prototype Mercedes-Benz EQC, turned into an extreme SUV. The concept received the prefix 4 × 4² to the name.
