Mercedes Benz BLS – Many auto aficionados are referring to the BLS as a "baby CLS" or as the media has promoted the "younger brother CLS-class." The 4-door coupe BLS will be a lot like a small version CLS if you looking for a reference vehicle. It will be front-wheel drive and based on the MFA platform shared with the upcoming next-generation A-Class and B-Class series models. Further down the road there may be a case to include all wheel drive variants. Many experts are reasonably confident that the BLS will capture features of the CLS-Class Sedan and F800 Concept vehicles.
The Mercedes Benz BLS will be a compact sedan/coupe. The upcoming new four-door sedan/coupe model being created by Mercedes Benz is based on the next-generation A-Class/B-Class (MFA) platform. Perhaps it will carry the CLC name which references its "bigger brother" lead title. It is more likely to be named BLS or somehow being cross-referenced to the B-Class Platform thus taking its place within the B-Class family of variants.
Since this is primarily a Mercedes Benz B-Class sedan, motor/engine options will be common or shared with its sister model and include a 2.0 liter capacity with 203 PS (149 kW / 200 bhp). It will also have a 2.2 liter capacity diesel engine with 172 PS (127 kW / 170 bhp). The Torque is going to be somehow delivered to the front wheels through a six-step mechanical gearbox or other technical manipulation. The engineering is still being worked out.
In 2012, Mercedes Benz Mexico Co-President Bruno Cattore indicated that the company was planning to build a new facility in Mexico. That decision has now changed with the official direction to utilize their assembly plant in Kecskemét, Hungary.
The vehicle is slated to come out in 2013/2014.
Mercedes Benz is known for capturing people’s imagination over a their life times. Mercedes-Benz vehicles typically offer high residual values, low maintenance expenses and highly efficient fuel economy features.
