The 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLS has been officially unveiled by the German based automaker, as the model is now coming with the Multibeam LED headlights.
The updated version of the Mercedes-Benz CLS, wearing the 2015 model year in its name, is basically a facelift, which has received some interesting tweaks, such as the Multibeam LED headlights, which have received 24 individually controlled LEDs. These can be adjusted 100 times per second by the four control units and the camera and the technology is capable of detecting uncoming vehicles and adjust the light beam so it will not affect other drivers.
Besides the Multibeam LED headlights, we can also notice the front bumper of the refreshed CLS lineup, which is now getting larger air ducts, a darker tint on the taillights, a diamond pattern on the front grille, an updated 3-spoke steering wheel, a free standing 8-inch color display and some other tweaks which should help the model stand out from a crowd quite easily.
