The Mercedes CLS just got more affordable than ever. Mercedes-Benz introduced a new diesel engine on the CLS price list, the four-cylinder CLS 220 d.
This new Mercedes-Benz CLS 220 d is the very version that immediately takes on the role of entry-level diesel. This is apparent from a short dive in the price lists.
Since its introduction, the CLS has been available with a selection of gasoline and diesel engines. The 245 horsepower and 300 Nm strong Mercedes CLS 300 d was the entry level for self-igniters to date, but that will change with the launch of the CLS 220 d.
The Mercedes CLS 220 d, just like the CLS 300 d already mentioned, is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel engine. In the 220d, the same diesel delivers 194 hp and 400 Nm and is significantly less powerful.
The sprint from a standstill to a speed of 100 km / h is estimated at 7.5 seconds. The Mercedes CLS 300 d does the same job in 6.4 seconds. However, the average consumption of the 220 d is lower: 4.8-5.1 liters of diesel per 100 km / h. The Mercedes CLS 300 d, on the other hand, consumes 5.2-5.3 l / 100 km. Both diesel versions come as standard with a 9G-Tronic nine-speed automatic transmission.
The starting price of the Mercedes CLS 220 d is set at € 57.792 in its home market, Germany.
