As the midsized coupe in the Mercedes-Benz lineup, the CLK is a relatively good value. With styling that echoes the more expensive CL-Class, the sleek CLK is certainly an attractive hardtop coupe. Engine choices include a 268-bhp 3.5L V-6 (CLK350) and a 302-bhp 5.0L V-8 (CLK500). Both models are equipped with a 7-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.
