Key updates for the Mercedes-Benz 2011 CL-Class include refreshed exterior styling, the addition of Active Blind Spot Assist and Active Lane Keeping Assist systems and two brand-new V8 engine choices that deliver more power along with improved efficiency. Also, new is an economy enhancing stop/start feature on the CL63 that automatically shuts off the engine when the vehicle is stopped.
For 2010, all CL's receive new audio systems with integrated Bluetooth, HD radio, four-gigabyte music register and USB and SD card slots. Also new is a wood and leather steering wheel and larger outside mirrors. All non-AMG models receive a new steering system – called Direct Steer – that employs variable ratio gearing within the steering rack, delivering better on-center and high-speed feedback.
Perhaps perfection has its limits, but Mercedes-Benz believes differently and proves it with the redesign of its flagship two-door, four-seater CL550. Along with the cachet that comes with driving this $100,00-plus coupe is the acknowledgement that its fluid, flowing lines are accompanied by superb V8 performance and one of the most dazzling arrays of hi-tech equipment ever packed into a single vehicle. The successful entrepreneur's dream car, the CL550 is neither showy nor obviously exotic. It demonstrates you've arrived at the serious end of capitalism, and offers the visionary leader who likes to call all the shots a COMAND brain that, with a button on the console to press or rotate, can set a myriad of personal function preferences, including suspension settings. Other CL models include the twin-turbo V12 CL600 and the CL63 AMG.
