Select engines getting 9G TRONIC

German media is reporting Mercedes-Benz will introduce the facelifted CLS range in late June at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The event will take place between 26 and 29 of June so expect official images and details to be published a few days earlier, possibly on June 23 as mentioned in a previous report. One of the most important changes will be the implementation of Active Multibeam ILS LED technology taken from the 2014 S-Class. In addition, select engines will be offered with a 9G TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission.

In terms of design, expect some modest revisions of the front and rear fascias, while on the inside it will boast the latest generation COMAND Online system with a free-standing display, a new controller and a steering wheel derived from the 2014 C-Class while the list of safety and assistance systems should be expanded as well.

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLS facelift lineup (CLS, CLS Shooting Brake, CLS 63 AMG) is set to reach dealerships on September 27.

I'm not sure if this should be posted on here or on the official thread? Both already have discussions about the 2015 model / facelift CLS.

Well there goes.

Default 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class Spy Shots (With Interior)











These are the latest spy shots of a prototype for Mercedes-Benz’s updated CLS-Class. The second generation of the CLS, which spans both sedan and shooting brake wagon bodystyles, was introduced for the 2012 model year so it's now about due for a mid-cycle update, which will most likely arrive in time for the 2015 model year.

Mercedes has just introduced new versions of C-Class, E-Class and S-Class models, and soon will be launching a new GLK-Class and M-Class. Not wanting the CLS to be left out from the product overhaul, designers appear to be giving the car a bit of a nip and tuck to keep it looking fresh. As the spy shots reveal, the facelifted CLS will adopt a new grille, new bumpers and revised lights.

The interior is also set to receive some updates, as evidenced by the spy shots, and we should also see a host of technology borrowed from the latest S-Class. These are likely to include the mbrace2 infotainment system, MAGIC BODY CONTROL camera-based adaptive suspension, and the latest DISTRONIC PLUS cruise control with Steering Assist, Cross-Traffic Assist, and Pre-Safe brake assist with pedestrian recognition.

As for the drivetrains, we may see the CLS550 adopt Mercedes' latest twin-turbocharged 4.6-liter V-8, which in the S-Class delivers 455 horsepower, although we could see the current 402-horsepower engine retained. A V-6 option for the U.S. market is also a possibility. The engine in the CLS63 AMG model has just been updated so no changes are expected here, although the car itself will receive the same updates you see here.

One major change for the latest CLS, however, is expected to be the addition of Mercedes’ new 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission instead of the seven-speed unit currently fitted to the model. The 9G-TRONIC is said to be more refined and more fuel efficient. Note, AMG models will stick with a seven-speed SPEEDSHIFT auto.

We’re expecting the facelifted CLS-Class to be revealed in the coming months, with a showroom appearance likely to take place near the end of the year. Sadly, Americas are still likely to miss out on the stylish CLS Shooting Brake.

No round air vents! I do like the steering wheel though.

The current CLS does have a tiny nav screen but geez that looks like someone slapped an iPad in there.
Wowzers.

With this large of a screen, visibility was becoming a concern. This setup allows for automakers to have a relatively low cowl while still having a giant screen, since there's no hood needed.

Look for this trend to continue- even Lexus did it with the upcoming NX.

do not like the 'add-on' screen like that.

can only be cost-related, because obviously the s-class doesn't do that.

isn't the cls derived from the e?

That's actually false. The AMG GT even has this design and it will be as expensive as the S-class. The screen in these free-standing models is even more expensive than the hooded models because it needs better anti-glare properties. Personally I believe BMW's integration is less jarring. Word for germancarforums suggests:

1) The S-class will adopt the screen in later iterations...one of the big reasons it doesn't have it right now is because of the timing of the S-class' launch and the fact that the hardpoints stayed the same as the W221 S-class (the W222 isn't on the new MRA platform)

2) Yes the CLS is derived from the E. Timing of the E-class refresh prevented it from getting the screen, although the redesigned 2016 model will have it
