The new Mercedes-Benz CLS Coupe and Shooting Brake go on sale this July, with prices set to start from £46,500 and £48,080 respectively.  First deliveries are expected to take place in September.

Four engines will be available, starting with a 2.1-litre turbodiesel in the CLS 220 BlueTEC.

It develops 177hp and 400Nm of torque, and boasts economy figures of 56.5 mpg and CO2 emissions of 129 g/km.

The larger diesel option comes in the form of the CLS 350 BlueTEC, powered by a 3.0-litre six-cylinder unit with 258hp and 620Nm of torque.  Economy is still more than respectable at 52.3 mpg with CO2 emissions of 142 g/km.  It’s mated as standard to a new nine-speed automatic transmission.

Petrol tastes are catered for with the CLS 400, which uses a 3.5-litre V6 with an enticing 333hp and 480Nm of torque, while economy takes a small hit at 38.7 mpg, with emissions of 170 g/km.

The top-of-the-range model, the CLS 63 AMG S, is powered by a mighty 5.5-litre V8 that now produces 585hp and 800Nm of torque.  It’s fearsomely fast, with 0-62mph despatched in just 4.1 seconds (4.2 for the Shooting Brake).  Economy isn’t likely to be a big concern, although it achieves 28.5 mpg and 231 g/km of CO2.

All CLS models feature the company’s COMAND Online navigation and infotainment system, heated front seats and ambient lighting, while two option packs allow further customisation.

The Premium Pack costs £2,395 for the Coupe and £2,095 and Shooting Brake, and adds an electric sunroof, seat memory, reversing camera and split-folding seats, while a Premium Plus Pack (£3,595 and £3,195 respectively) goes on to add a Harmon Kardon sound system and keyless entry.

The CLS 63 AMG  S includes the content of both packs, plus a power tailgate as standard.

The new Mercedes-Benz CLS is available to order this July, with first deliveries due in September.
