Mercedes has officially unveiled the 2011 CLS-Class.

Drawing design cues from the Shooting Brake Concept, the CLS features flared wheel arches, a sloping roofline, and optional LED headlights. Inside, the cabin boasts leather upholstery, wood trim, and bright metal accents.

When it is launched in January, two models will be available - the 195 kW (265 PS / 262 hp) CLS 350 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY and the 225 kW (306 PS / 302 hp) CLS 350 BlueEFFICIENCY. Two months later, the 150 kW (204 PS / 201 hp) CLS 250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY will be added to the lineup. In April, the 300 kW (408 PS / 402 hp) CLS 500 BlueEFFICIENCY will greet eager consumers.

In Germany, pricing starts at €59,857 and the configurator is already online.
