Mercedes has revealed the face of the facelifted CLS four-door coupe and of course the good news is that it will be coming to India also. The CLS if you have not forgotten established the four-door coupe segment years ago when it was launched. Mercedes has not yet fully revealed all the details but here is what we know. In the new CLS Mercedes-Benz is using the new technology of MULTIBEAM LED headlamps for the first time.

You have a camera positioned behind the windscreen delivers the information with which four control units the ideal light pattern 100 times per second. The anticipatory camera-based active light function on bends and the new navigation-based light function for roundabouts. There are LED modules, each with 24 individually controlled high-performance LEDs, automatically illuminate the road.

"The first LED headlamps with all the adaptive functions of the Intelligent Light System have been available to our customers since 2010 in the CLS", says Prof Dr Thomas Weber, Member of the Daimler Board of Management responsible for Group Research and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars Development. "

With MULTIBEAM LED technology the headlamps now are able to react even more quickly, more precisely and individually to changing traffic conditions. On top of this, there are expanded functions of which a driver will become directly aware, such as anticipatory camera-based curve recognition with the active light function. With such features Mercedes-Benz once again is demonstrating its role as an innovation leader in the automobile industry."
