The 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class was unveiled to the public later at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, it is a significant update of the automaker’s original four-door coupe.

We can easily see the automaker’s Bentley-esque rear “hips” that take the Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan’s look to a whole new level. A much flashier pair of tailights are easy to see as well. Up front Mercedes-Benz opted for full LED headlamps, the world’s first to offer the full range of turn signals, running lamps, low and high-beam functions purely from LEDs.

Inside, the 2012 model of  Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class gains a more wrap-around-style dashboard with more innovative and upscale materials before. Matte galvanized trim surrounds the air vents, while hand-sewn leather wraps the dashboard.

Motivation for this new CLS is expected to come from a wide range of gas and diesel motors, as well as a BlueHybrid model that will use the same hybrid system as the S400 BlueHybrid. One engine that has been confirmed is a new twin-turbocharged 4.6-liter V8, good for 435 horsepower and 513 lb-ft. of torque. Expect an AMG variant sporting the Bi-turbo 5.5-liter V8 to come in the relatively near future – boasting 563 horsepower and 664 lb-ft. of torque.
