2009 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class 5.0 2
$ 22,203-52,451
June 20, 2008
Vehicle Overview
The CL-Class is a two-door equivalent of the German automaker's high-end S-Class sedan. The CL-Class competes with the Bentley Continental GT and BMW M6. It gains a number of new options for 2009, including a parking assist system designed to make it easier to parallel park the CL-Class.

New for 2009
4Matic all-wheel drive debuts in the CL-Class lineup for 2009, along with the parking assist system and a blind-spot monitoring system.

Bulges around the wheels, a sculpted ridge along the lower sill and a subtle bodyside crease distinguish the current CL from its predecessor. The body measures a whopping 199.4 inches in length, making it as long as most full-size SUVs. The CL-Class' competitors, the Continental GT and M6, are considerably shorter — by as much as 10 inches in the case of the Bentley.
  • Dual stainless steel exhaust with chrome tailpipe finish
  • Standard power moonroof
  • Xenon headlights include washers
  • New 18-inch, seven-twin-spoke wheels on V-8 CL550 4Matic
  • AMG Sport Package with front/rear aprons, side skirts and 19-inch wheels
  • Rear-wheel-drive CL550 no longer offered

CL-Class coupes accommodate up to four occupants and have bucket-like rear seats. With 104.2 cubic feet of passenger volume, the CL-Class is nearly as large on the inside as the S-Class sedan, and is far roomier than the M6 or Continental GT.
  • Paddles shifters replace button for manual gear shifting
  • Heated front seats
  • 11-speaker Harman Kardon stereo
  • Power-closing trunklid
  • Ventilated front seats optional (standard on the CL600)
  • Comand control system
  • Burl walnut wood trim
