Pricewatch: Mercedes-Benz CLK320 cdi v Peugeot 407 coupe HDi

FLEET NewsNet looks at how new cars taken on to a fleet might perform over the next three years/60,000 miles. Using data from used car expert CAP Motor Research, we benchmark two cars against each other to see how they perform over the traditional fleet cycle.

This week, we compare two V6 diesel automatic coupes – Mercedes-Benz’s CLK320 CDI Elegance and the Peugeot 407 Coupe 2.7 V6 HDi SE.
