Mercedes-Benz CLK Cabriolet (2003-2009)

The Mercedes-Benz CLK Cabriolet is a very stylish product. Build quality and equipment levels are impressive and the car has a great feeling of strength. Handling is composed and well mannered rather than exciting but performance is impressive, particularly from the 500. The AMG model is super fast but not the most satisfying drive. Still, one of the finest premium convertibles money can buy.

Mercedes CLK 200 Kompressor Cabriolet

The CLK 200 Kompressor badge on this Cabriolet is a little decieveing as it is actually powered by a supercharged 1.8 litre petrol engine. The good news is that it produces enough power to make it entertaining to drive despite this being the bottom of the range. The handling is good and it makes a great long distance cruiser.

  1. Philip Lawrence says:

    The CLK cab is a great car; comfortable, stylish and when necessary pretty pacey, but as the critics never tire of pointing out it’s not a sharp sports car, with hard suspension and race track handling. But where, may I ask, in the UK do you find these roads with no police, no mums and kids, no cameras, no cows in the road, no pot holes, no cyclists? The kind of roads that May, Clarkson et.al drive on are actually mythical. In the real world the CLK is an ideal car; excting when the opportunity permits, but equiped to deal with the constraints that even boy racers now face. But if you buy one prepare to be hated. My wife had an accident in a CLK a couple of years ago and was jeered at and booed by passing Bristolian motorists. We are a jealous lot us Brits.

  2. Ellen Callaghan says:

    I have owned Mercedes for the last 28 years and have to say they are the best…the only thing you have to replace is the tyres! I have owned: E Class, C Class, S Class, CLK 200 (which I have had for the last 9 years) but now have replaced it with a 2009 CLK convertible just recently. Now need to part with my beloved CLK 2000 model…any takers ?
