I like the direction MB is heading to. BMW, on the other hand,...

This S class is gorgeous! The CL will be axed; I'm happy about that they should just keep things simple. Instead of having C, CL, CLA, CLS...S, SL, SLK, SLS.

In the upcoming generation of MB cars vs current BMW's, I'd stick with MB looks this time. Despite that, there still isn't a worthy successor to the CLK in terms of looks.

I'm pretty sure it's the S-Class Coupe. Take a look at this concept pic of the rear and maybe it will convince you. The media is also reporting this as the S-Class Coupe.



VS.

^It could be the new CL too? Again, Mercedes itself said that the S coupe was still just a concept.

I thought that the S-Class Coupe was going to replace the CL. But you're right, it is still a concept, so nothing has been explicitly confirmed.

EDIT: This is indeed going to be the S-Class Coupe which will replace the CL

How do we know that for sure?

Idk, Mercedes said themselves that this was still only a concept meant to show the world what Mercedes can do. It's not replacing anything. I quoted them on the first page of this thread - Direct from their official FB page.

I just did a google search of this car and all car news point to this as being the S-class coupe. example:

Quote:
After a nearly two-decade hiatus, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe nameplate is back. Unveiled this week at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the S-Class Coupe is being presented as a concept car - but make no mistake, a production model will follow soon.

Set to replace the automaker's CL-Class, the S-Class coupe is a design-oriented sibling to the automaker's recently-released 2014 S-Class sedan.

Anyway, this test mule looks pretty much identical to the concept even when camouflaged.

The dimensions look the same from camo to concept.

I don't. I find the new design very weird and without a powerful identity.
Mercedes used to have a stance on the road. Today they look like crap.
