Rivalling the likes of the BMW 6 Series, Volkswagen Passat CC and Audi A7 Coupe, the Mercedes-Benz CLS has been on sale here in the UK since 2005 and is now in its second generation.

Available as a four-door Coupe when it was first launched, performance modified versions of the CLS produced by Mercedes-AMG quickly followed suit and came equipped with either a supercharged 5.4-litre V8 or a more powerful 6.2-litre engine with 514bhp.

The second generation was launched in 2011 after it was officially unveiled at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, taking its design cues from the SLS sports car. 

Offering sleek looks and a premium cabin, the CLS also came with four new engines offering a good mix of performance and fuel economy figures and all are equipped with an automatic gearbox as standard.
