New Mercedes-Benz CLS - from £44,000
New Mercedes-Benz CLS
The new Mercedes-Benz CLS will be available from late summer and will have a starting price of around £44,000 with prices finishing at an estimated £74,000. The new CLS has a maximum speed of 153mph, will get from 0-60mph in around 7 seconds and will give 37.2mpg on a combinded cycle. The standard safety features on the new CLS include Twin front, side & window airbags, ABS and ESP.
The diesel is the CLS for those looking to bypass big fuel bills. It manages a very creditable 37.2mpg along with 200g/km CO2 emissions, making it a viable option for company car users. The CLS 350 CGI can achieve 31mpg, so it too is hardly crippling to run in the scheme of things. Costs rise sharply once you progress onto the V8 CLS 500 with 24mpg and 275g/km on the cards. Then it’s the CLS 63 AMG which returns 19mpg and emits 345g/km of CO2.
