2009 Mercedes CLS63 AMG

While the look of the CLS has remained just about the same (why mess with perfection!) the value has gone up substantially. Navigation has become standard equipment – and not the old navigation but the new system that debuted in the C-Class and that will be in the E, ML, GL and R-Classes this year. The old P2 Package is gone and all of the desireable equipment – Xenons and Keyless GO – have been added into P1 Package. The P1 Package went up in price, from $2860 in 2008 to $3950 for 2009 which is less than 2008 P2 at $4770.
