2017-18 Mercedes-Benz E-Class, CLS recalled

Mercedes-Benz has recalled the 2017-18 E-Class and CLS, over concerns about owners using a child restraint in the passenger seat. According to the company, if a child seat is installed in the front passenger seat, there's a chance the airbag might not turn off as intended. In those cases, there's a risk the airbag will trigger in an accident and injure the child in a rear-facing seat. The 15 affected vehicles were sold between October 2, 2017 and June 29, 2018. A VIN list is attached here.

An extra 150Nm is available from the EQ Boost mild-hybrid system when the driver buries the throttle.

2018 Mercedes-Benz CLS spied almost free of disguise

The third-generation Mercedes-Benz CLS has been spied without a trace of the disguise tape usually seen on pre-production prototypes, although there is a sheet covering part of the boot lid and all of the tail-lights. Given the car's parking spot next to a wall, our spy photographer was unable to snap any pictures of the car's front end. Earlier spy photos, however, revealed an angular set of headlights flanking an aggressive front grille.
