As the midsized convertible in the Mercedes-Benz lineup, the CLK Cabriolet is a relatively good value. With styling that echoes the more expensive SL-Class, the CLK Cabriolet is certainly a very attractive convertible. Engine choices include a 268-bhp 3.5L V-6 (CLK350) and a 302-bhp 5.0L V-8 (CLK500), or pick the 362-bhp supercharged 5.5L V-8 in the CLK55 AMG. The CLK350 & 500 get a 7-speed automatic, while the CLK55 AMG sticks with the 5-speed automatic. A dizzying array of options allows customers to personalize their CLK; especially the "designo" packages, which combine interior and exterior trim with a color-coordinated theme.

What Changed:

CLK320 model is replaced by the CLK350 model. The CLK350 features a new 3.5L V6 and seven-speed automatic. All CLKs receive a new grille and taillights.
