The world's first four-door Coupe, the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class, is now even more distinguished and powerful with the introduction of the new CLS Grand Edition. Only 560 units will be coming to the UK, with deliveries starting in July.

There is a choice of five colors, including, for the first time on the CLS, Palladium Silver. For those customers who want an even more exclusive look there is also the option of the unique designo Palladium Silver Matt Paint, which is not only eye catching, but also highly scratch and dirt-resistant.

Since the CLS launched in 2005 over 14,500 units have been sold and the success story will gain a boost with the introduction of the CLS Grand Edition. Features include stunning 18" AMG 5 spoke alloy wheels with a Titanium Grey finish, front grille louvers and headlamp housings in a Palladium silver matt finish and floor mats with Grand Edition Badging.

Diesel power accounts for over seventy per cent of CLS-Class sales in the UK and is the focus for this special edition as well. The CLS Grand Edition boasts a power upgrade of 48 hp which takes the overall power of the CLS 350 CDI V6 to 272 hp. This twinned with a 50 Nm increase in torque has resulted in 0-62 mph being achieved in 6.5 seconds, an improvement of half a second, without any compromise to the combined fuel consumption of 37.2 mpg or CO2 emissions of 215 g/km.

Style and performance are important, but so is safety. In the Grand Edition the driver benefits from the Bi-Xenon Light Package as standard including the Cornering Light Function and the Active Light System. Cornering Light Function improves safety when driving slowly and on tight bends using the low beam headlamps and fog lights to illuminate the area to the side of the vehicle. The Active Light System improves road illumination in corners by up to 90% enabling the driver to see 25 meters further along an extended bend with a radius of 190 meters.

The CLS Grand Edition offers more visual and design enhancements, even better performance and increased safety features from $79,000 on the road. This represents a price premium of just $4000 over the standard CLS 350 CDI for $7500 worth of extra equipment, resulting in $3500 of added value for the customer.
