Mercedes-Benz CLK Coupe (97-02)

Value

4 out of 5

Stunning second-hand buy. One of the last "bulletproof" Mercs.

Costs

4 out of 5

Quite frugal at 25-30 to the gallon, but main dealer servicing is very costly. Not tremendously mechanically complex, so perfectly suitable for good quality independent servicing.

Driving

4 out of 5

Disarmingly swift car, user friendly, comfortable, excellent as grand tourer and for daily use. Capacious load space.

Performance

4 out of 5

Seamless delivery from supercharged 4 cyl, 2.3 litre engine. 0-60 about nine seconds, but feels quicker. Excellent five speed auto gearbox. Not a sports car, but excellent all-round performer.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Peerless.

5 out of 5

Quality car from premium manufacturer. Less common than BMW 3 Series Coupe, which is probably the nearest rival.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Quality interior fittings and ergonomics. Only short of height adjustment on steering wheel.

Security

5 out of 5

Alarmed and immobilised. Short of smashing windows, seems to be as good as you can get.

Service

2 out of 5

Woeful, costly and supercilious.
