The upcoming Mercedes-Benz BLS (a.k.a., the Baby CLS) was recently spotted at the Mercedes plant in Hungary. The spy photos confirm the BLS rumors that have been circulating for months, and it’s clear that Mercedes-Benz is indeed planning to move forward with their slightly smaller CLS.
As you’d expect, the baby CLS will be built on the same architecture as the next-generation B-Class. Front-wheel drive will likely be the choice for the standard version, whereas the AMG version is said to be receiving an all-wheel drive system.
It is not yet certain if the photos show a prototype version of the car or whether Mercedes-Benz is getting it ready it for the IAA in Frankfurt Motor Show this September. Either way, as additional details come in, we will bring them your way. Thanks to Markus and BenzInsider for the tip.
