Used Mercedes-Benz CLK Coupe (1997 - 2002) Comfort

The CLK coupé is excellently engineered throughout and boasts a supremely comfortable ride, while the elegant four-seater’s core design is based upon the fine Mercedes-Benz C-Class series. The supercharged 230K and V6 engines offer potent performance, while the 320 and 430 models mark this out as a highly sought-after vehicle.

There are four trim levels available in total, each possessing their own unique character. The main difference between the two more prominent trim editions is that Avantgarde has a more contemporary interior, while Elegance is softer and more graceful. The Final Edition model boasts a greater level of equipment, whereas Sport is firmer and refined. Legroom in the rear is a little cramped – especially when sitting behind a taller driver - although the seats are comfy and supportive throughout the vehicle.

When the vehicle travels over 5mph, the doors, boot and fuel flap all automatically lock, characterising the thoughtful ingenuity of the CLK coupé. The two-door design can make rear access a little awkward at times, but it shouldn’t cause too many domestic quarrels, and the boot is spacious enough for the average family's suitcases.

Behind the wheel

With extensive seat adjustment most drivers won't take long to find their ideal seating position, while the dashboard is clearly arranged and nicely finished. There are few manufacturers in this bracket that offer the same kudos and image, and this has all the neat touches expected from a Mercedes.
