Motorshow: 2009 New York International Auto Show

The '09 New York motorshow was home to loads of new car debuts like the Mercedes S-Class facelift, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Mercedes ML hybrid, Mercedes GL-Class facelift, Kia Koup and the Mazda CX-9 facelift, just to name a few.

With more than 270,000 units sold, the 2010 S-Class sedan has been subtly facelifted with new bumpers, lights and interior. Most importantly, the engine range has changed. While 6 engines remain, out goes the popular entry-level 320 CDI V6 in favour for a larger, more powerful 350 CDI V6. The new diesel engine boasts better fuel economy at 37.2mpg combined, from 34mpg. CO2 emissions have dropped from 220g - 223g/km to 199g - 201g/km. While the S-Class goes on sale in the UK in Summer, the S400 Hybrid won't come to the UK as carbon emissions are slightly lower than the diesel engine (186g/km), which makes the car next to useless when it comes to taxation. In addition, the hybrid would also prove to be more expensive.

German prices start at €73,000 for the entry-level S350 CDI rising to €155,354 for the S600. Order books are now opened.

S350 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY - €73,006.50

S450 CDI - €91,987

S350 - €76,160

S400 HYBRID - €85,323

S450 - €84,609

S500 - €96,509

S600 - €155,354.50
