2024 Mercedes-Benz CLE Exteriors and Interiors
The new Mercedes-Benz borrows its external styling from its present C-Class and E-Class which makes it more attractive than before the sedans with its sleek profile. The car will have a prominent trapezoidal grille with a slight shark nose effect. It will also have a very curved roof and C-pillar along with an extended probing bonnet, a sloping boot lid, a profoundly angled rear window and a tapered rear end.

There will be a 11.9-inch portrait-style, as well as a 12.3-inch instrument infotainment, displays similar to what is found in the latest C-Class. The 11.9-inch display is positioned closer to the driver’s seat. The car will incorporate the latest MBUX infotainment system with support for Android Auto and Apple Car Play. It will also house a Burmester premium audio system with speakers integrated in the front headrests and a wireless charging pad.
