Order books are open for the latest Mercedes-Benz CLS, after the four-door coupe debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November.

The second generation car will go on sale at prices starting from £57,510, with first UK deliveries scheduled for summer 2018. It will target the Audi A7 and BMW 5 Series GT – cars that were effectively launched as contenders to the first CLS that until then had no direct rivals.

All new Mercedes-Benz CLS models for the UK will be supplied in a single trim level, AMG Line, and equipped with all-wheel-drive as standard. There will be a choice of three engines, the cars dubbed 350 d, 400 d and 450.

Both the 350 d and 400 d use a new in-line six-cylinder diesel engine. In the entry-level model, it produces 286hp and 600Nm of torque, good enough for a 5.7-second 0-62mph time. Combined cycle fuel economy is 48.7mpg alongside CO2 emissions of 156g/km.

   

The 340hp and 700Nm of the 400 d cuts the sprint to five seconds, while delivering 47.9mpg and 156g/km of CO2 for a price £2,900 more than the 350 d. Both cars are electronically limited to a 155mph top speed.

The petrol option is the CLS 450, costing only £10 more than the 350 d and again employing a new engine. The 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder bi-turbo petrol unit has an output of 367hp and 500Nm of torque. However, a 48-volt starter generator dubbed EQ Boost can increase the output by 22hp and 250Nm. The car hits 62 mph from rest in 4.8 seconds, again is limited to  155mph and offers combined fuel economy of 36.2mpg with COemissions of 184g/km.

Standard equipment on all Mercedes-Benz CLS models includes 19-inch alloy wheels; a parking package that includes a reversing camera; leather upholstery; split folding rear seats; a 12-inch infotainment screen and a separate 12-inch cockpit display; ambient lighting with a choice of 64 colours; ‘Agility Control’ suspension and a DAB digital radio.
