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.

Running costs

Despite the relatively low depreciation rate, the maintenance bills and servicing might hit you a little hard in the pocket. Running costs are comparable to the E-Class. The equipment justifies the high prices, as the CLK coupé offers a good standard level of kit for a car of this age, with air conditioning, power steering, tinted glass and an automatic heating system.
