Mercedes-Benz pioneers another first in the automotive world, the first car available with full LED headlamps. The newly redesigned CLS550 sedan that will be released to dealer inventories in mid 2011 as a 2012 model will be available with full LED headlamps. The LED headlamps will be part of the Premium 1 Package (P1), Bi-Xenon headlamps will be standard equipment on the new CLS.
During the past couple of years we’ve seen small strips or ‘brows’ of LED lights appearing as turn signals, running lights and fog lights (as on Audi vehicles, many BMW models and Mercedes-Benz cars), but no one has come up with a full LED system that gives you brighter lights to see by at night, but they also make better use of the vehicle’s energy and power more efficiently.
There are many other changes to the new CLS, completely new body, not just a mild massaging, a new engine… and… brace yourself… 4matic models will be introduced during the summer of 2011! More details to come… check back here soon for more.
