Shots of Mercedes CLS released

The first official pictures of the latest version of Mercedes-Benz CLS saloon car have been released by the German manufacturer.

The original model of the executive-size car was described as a 'four-door coupe' at its launch, and the new version sports all design features of the recent models under the brand.

The latest CLS keeps the popular and distinctive sloping roofline of the original model. The new pictures were released before the car's public debut at the Paris Motor Show next month.

The company is yet to reveal details about the car's engine, however, it is expected to include petrol and diesel units similar to those of the E-Class models. The new version is also likely to feature full LED headlamps as an option.
