Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG Overview

After making its fashion runway debut only three years ago as the world's first four-door coupe, the highly successful Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class is getting a facelift for the 2009 model year. An instant style icon from day one, the CLS coupe has spurred an automotive industry trend toward more eye-catching four-door cars - vehicles that blur the line between coupe and sedan. mercedes cls accessories as larger outside mirrors now feature built-in arrow-shaped turn signals, and new dual-five-spoke 18-inch wheels make the car even more striking. A new rear bumper with trapezoidal dual exhaust pipes and arrow-shaped LED taillights complete the fresh look of the new model. Opening the driver's door reveals a sportier three-spoke steering wheel and new gauges in white with silver backgrounds.
