2011 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class Facelift Spied Almost Undisguised

Our spies have captured the 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class almost without disguise during testing in Germany. The big two-door coupe model, which may be re-designated as the S-Coupe when it arrives in Mercedes' showrooms later this year, benefits from similar changes to the ones seen in the recently pepped-up S-Class sedan.

At the front there are new headlamp, bonnet and bumper designs plus a more pointed and tapering front grille featuring two horizontal bars instead of three, while Mercedes also added the mandatory LED daytime running lights as well.

The exterior door mirrors are also new, as are the alloy wheel designs. At the back, we find new LED tail lights plus an additional set of lights flanking the license plate area, and a restyled rear bumper with newly shaped exhaust pipes.

It is expected that the refreshed CL-Class or S-Coupe will also introduce a new range of high-tech gadgets and some minor upgrades in the interior.

The engine lineup is likely to remain the same, however, expect mild improvements in fuel economy and performance.

There's a strong possibility that we see the 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class making its premiere as early as next week at the Geneva Motor Show, though this has not been officially confirmed.
