About Mercedes-Benz CL-Class

Powerful in presence, luxurious in craftsmanship and armed with some of Mercedes-Benz's most potent engine options, the 2014 CL-Class puts the "grand" in grand touring coupes. Think of these big 4-seat coupes as the thinking and (very well-to-do) working man's high-end transportation. From the base CL550 Coupe to the 621-horsepower biturbo V12-equipped CL65 AMG, the CL-Class coupes still offer a fine mix of performance and livability even in what is the final year of their current generation. The CL-Class distinguishes itself from rivals such as the BMW 6 Series with understated design and prodigious amounts of prestige. Price tags starting well into the $100,000 range and eclipsing $200,000 for the top-line AMG model automatically disqualify some buyers, while significant depreciation may deter others.

Pros: "top of the line grand tourer, classy"

Cons: "expensive with high depreciation first 2 years"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I bought my 07 CL550 new and it has been a fabulous grand tourer on several cross-country trips. Whether you are cruising at high speeds in west Texas or going to dinner locally, this car is the real deal. The more you drive it, the more you appreciate it. The interior is flawless and makes long distance trips a pleasure. The engine, handling and quality of fit and finish are all outstanding. I've had a couple of mechanical things fixed under warranty but the car still looks and drives like new as it approaches 90k miles I've owned many cars but this is the best I've ever had and the only one that's this good after so many miles. If you take care of it, it's worth every penny"

"Went from a 2007 S550 to a 2008 CL550. Easy transition. Same quality, features and ride. Just in a sexier body. The car really shows how sad US car quality is and why the US car makers are hurting; big time. If you got the bucks, get the car. It's one of life's great pleasures"
