2022 The Mercedes-Benz CLS 450 4MATIC comes with an update that gives the coupe-inspired sedan an updated look and fine-tuned technology. Sales in the US will begin in early 2022, and the company is not discussing prices yet.
The 2022 CLS now comes standard with the AMG Line styling package on the outside which includes various side panels and pieces of glossy black decor. The sedan has a revised front bumper with a more fluid design for the inlets in the lower part of the front, and the front divider is now chrome. The adjusted grille gets a three-dimensional Mercedes-Benz star pattern with a chrome glass surface. The LED headlights are clear in the outer corner, instead of yellow on today̵
Starling Blue Metallic is now an exterior paint color. There are also new five-twin spokes and multi-spoke designs available for 19-inch wheels. The 20-inch pieces get the color options Tremolite Gray or High-Gloss Black.
Inside, the 2022 CLS has a tweaked steering wheel with capacitive sensors to control the vehicle’s functions, and it has a Nappa leather coating. Buyers have expanded trim options of Open Pore Brown Walnut and High-Gloss Gray Wood. Two-tone Neva Gray / Magma Gray and Sienna Brown / Black are new choices of leather upholstery.
The CLS 450 gets a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six with an integrated starter-generator mild hybrid system. The internal combustion engine produces 362 horsepower (270 kilowatts) and 500 Newton meters. The starter generator can contribute up to 21 hp (16 kW) and a torque of 184 lb-ft (250 Nm). The driveline passes through a nine-speed automatic to a four-wheel drive system.
Mercedes’ announcement of the changes only addressed the CLS 450 4MATIC. When asked about other varieties, the company said Motor1.com: “For facelifts, the 2022 CLS will be available in the United States exclusively as the CLS 450 4MATIC.”
