Fleet news logo

Revisions to the Mercedes-Benz CL range have resulted in a new lower CO2 petrol V8 version.

The new 435 hp V8 biturbo engine of the CL 500 BlueEFFICIENCY, with a combined consumption of 29.7mpg, demonstrates cuts of up to 23% over its predecessor model, CO2 emissions having dropped from 288g/km to 224g/km.

This significant reduction is achieved thanks to the newly-developed BlueDIRECT technology with third-generation spray-guided direct injection, with the contribution of the specially-designed BlueEFFICIENCY package of the CL 500 BlueEFFICIENCY.

According to Dr Dieter Zetsche, chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG: “The CL is the ideal ambassador for our brand. It combines in a particular degree those things that characterise Mercedes-Benz: fascination, perfection and responsibility. And with the new generation we have gone a step further, too – especially in the realm of efficiency. But in terms of design, safety, comfort and output, too – the CL shows the way forward: simply follow Mercedes”
