The facelifted Mercedes-Benz CLS Coupe and CLS Shooting Brake will be priced from £46,500 and £48,080 respectively when they both go on sale in time for the September plate-change.
The Mercedes CLS range facelift benefits from some features fitted to the E-Class which was faclifted last year.
Exterior changes include tweaked LED headlamps as standard equipment across the range, a new ‘diamond’ front grille, slightly chunkier front bumper with gaping air intakes, and tail lamps that have been given a darker, smoked look.
The CLS range now comes with a nine-speed automatic transmission which replaces the seven-speed G-Tronic transmission on the C350 diesel.
There are also two new models: the entry-level CLS 220, and a V6-powered CLS 400. The 220 uses the 2.1-litre twin-turbo diesel with 174bhp, while the new CLS 400 is powered by the 3.5-litre twin-turbo V6.
The AMG CLS 5.5-litre twin-turbo V8 has been given a power boost from 550bhp to 577bhp.
Additional facelift options include new colours and an 8-inch infotainment display.
New safety gear includes Collision Prevention Assist Plus as standard, which brakes the CLS automatically to prevent a rear-end accident, while the LED headlamps can be optioned with a new ‘Multibeam’ feature that dips the high beam automatically but also provides additional light on the road sides for better visibility.
