Mercedes has released details of its revised CLS range.

External changes to the four-door coupe are minimal, and are centred on the front grille, rear light clusters and a new style of alloy wheels.

Internal modifications include a restyled leather steering wheel, a new-look instrument cluster and a new computer system to control the cars entertainment and navigation functions.

The 6.2-litre AMG model has additional changes to its exhaust system and a new gearshift function that makes downshifts smoother. Buyers can also choose a new style of 19-inch alloy wheel.

The engines range remains the same: 288bhp 3.5-litre, a 382bhp 5.5-litre petrol and 507bhp 6.2-litre units and a 221bhp 3.0-litre diesel.

All engine types come with a seven-speed semi-automatic gearbox as standard.
