'The new CLS points the way forward for the future design of Mercedes-Benz,' said professor Gorden Wagener, head of design at Mercedes-Benz.

The car will get its motor show debut at the Paris show next month, where more details will be revealed, however the four-door CLS will get the new V6 and V8 engines that will be available in the updated CL in the autumn.
