Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
The CL-Class is the 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 few new options for 2010, including an attention-assist system and other tech features designed to assist the driver.

New for 2010
There's a 100th Anniversary Edition of Mercedes-Benz model available, along with new driver-assistance technology.

Exterior
Bulges around the wheels, a sculpted ridge along the lower sill and a subtle body-side crease distinguish the CL. The body measures a whopping 199.4 inches in length, making it as long as most full-size SUVs. The Continental GT and M6 are considerably shorter.
  • Dual stainless steel exhaust with chrome tailpipe finish
  • Standard power moonroof
  • Bi-xenon headlights include washers
  • AMG Sport Package with front/rear aprons, side skirts and 20-inch wheels
  • New 18-inch, five-spoke wheels on CL600
  • 100th Anniversary Edition includes exclusive paint and AMG Sport Package


Interior
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 it's far roomier than the M6 or Continental GT.

  • Power-closing trunklid
  • Comand control system
  • Burl walnut wood trim
  • Enhanced head unit with Bluetooth, USB and SD card inputs, 4GB hard drive, HD radio and Zagat information

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
