The 2015 CLS-Class gets new ‘Multibeam’ LED headlights, diamond front grille, revised bumper with larger air intakes and darkened taillights. The headlights are adaptive not just to the steering wheel but also to the road ahead. The beam modules swivel not just with the turn of the steering wheel but also with the turn on the road coming-up ahead. The navigation system assists the headlights with forthcoming turns.
