KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By KBB.com Editors - Updated Date: 10/7/2013


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.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you've got it, don't need to flaunt it, but occasionally like to take it for a run, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class coupes give you all that you can handle plus a beautiful place to be meanwhile.

You May Not Like This Car If...

Those who dine at slightly less-expensive steakhouses might look to the BMW 6 Series coupe, whose starting price undercuts that of the CL-Class by some $40,000 and has far better resale value. If you dread setting up your latest electronic device, the COMAND system and its 700-plus page manual might send a chill down your spine.

What's New for 2014

This is the final year for the current CL-Class, with its successor slated to launch in fall of 2014 and likely to bring many of the innovations seen in the all-new S-Class. The only change for this model is that the Premium Package, which includes massaging seats and night-vision assistance, is now standard across the line.

Driving It Driving Impressions

Through the use of its COMAND system, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class can be tailored to a driver's preferences, from seating position and climate control to audio and communications settings. This high degree of customization lays the groundwork for a similarly adaptable driving experience. Even the "base" CL550, with its 429-horsepower V8 and Airmatic suspension, provides a dynamic, responsive and controlled drive. But the higher-power engines and Active Body Control suspension on the other CL models feel almost magical, with great thrust, control and comfort. Whether you want a comfortable cruiser or a surprisingly nimble sports car, the CL63 AMG, CL600 and top-dog CL65 are happy to oblige. If you regularly drive on slick roads, you may be most attracted to the CL550, as it is the only variant equipped with Mercedes' traction-enhancing 4Matic all-wheel-drive system instead of rear-drive. The automatic transmission (7-speed for the V8s, 5-speed for V12s) is seamless and precise.

Favorite Features

COMAND
Yes, it's a bear to set up. Once it is, though, the COMAND system provides for a level of vehicle personalization and control that is as elegant as it is useful.

MASSAGING FRONT SEATS
Ever wish you could bring a masseuse along to ease that commute? The 2014 CL-Class comes with two of them, and they're called the front seats. Now standard across the line, both driver and passenger can be treated to a massage at any time in Mercedes' ultra-luxury coupe.
