Mercedes CL Review

The Mercedes CL derives many of its elements from the S-Class Saloon. The question then lies in how this new model will distinguish itself from the more popular model. There are also the vehicle’s similarities to the Jaguar XKR or the Bentle Continental GT. The similarities continue to be evident in the CL model itself, which shares far too many of the best-selling features of the S-Class. How then does this vehicle fare in the market and on its own?

Pros

Three models comprise the Mercedes CL engine range. There’s the 4.7-litre bitorubo V8 engined with CL500 and two AMG models, the 5.5-litre biturbo V8 at CL63 AMG, and the larger 6.0-litre biturbo V12. The CL63 AMG delivers a powerful 536bhp, but the CL65 AMG at 621bhp is stronger at 737lb ft of torque.

The Mercedes CL’s overall size is more than five metres in length. This larger than usual size suits it as it tends to be not too sporty, thanks to the arced roofline, lengthy rear, pronounced wheel arches, and pillarless windows. Another distinct feature is the bold feature line that spans the front wheel up until the rear lights. You also can’t miss the CL coming up from behind thanks to its LED driving lights and badge leaves. Other not too aggressive features are the AMG alloy wheels’ balanced chrome and the exhausts seen in the AMG cars.

The Mercedes CL houses a spacious interior. The rear seats are how the vehicle stands out from the S-Class, but the rest is similar to its inspiration. Nonetheless you’ll still appreciate the saloon’s classy finish: you won’t miss the hard plastics Mercedes has been known for.

In terms of performance, the V8 engine in the CL500 provides a smooth and refined ride. It can reach 60mph from standstill in just 4.9 seconds, making it quite impressive in terms of speed. The 4.7-litre biturbo V8 is also quite impressive with its 6000rpm. Peak torque is at 1800 rpm up until 3500rpm however, which is not a problem if you are only after casual driving. There’s no need to put extra effort on the right foot either as you go through slow traffic in the CL. For more intensity, you can run through the 5.5-litre biturbo V8 of the CL63 AMG. Throttle response if quick due to less turbo pressure; plus the large engine allows for more boost to run through. You’ll also be impressed by the CL65 AMG’s acceleration on the 6.0-litre V12. Its biturbos can take your breath away despite the weight of the car.

Cons

Unfortunately stepping into the CL is too much like stepping into the S-Class cars. Plus there are other flaws in the interior, such as the wrong hinges on the phone controller pad for right-handed individuals, off stitching, and unattractive silvery switches along the dash. There’s also no visual fair whatsoever in the overall design despite being a well-assembled interior. The seat adjustment switches are quite clumsy to boot. Fine detailing isn’t a priority either in this vehicle.

A History Of The Mercedes CL

        A very beautiful car out on the market right now is the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class. The Mercedes CL is manufactured by the world-renowned German automotive manufacturing brand, Mercedes-Benz, and is classified as a luxury-class coupé. CL means Coupe Leicht in German, which means “Coupe Light” in English (either way, it is still abbreviated as CL). The CL-Class as its own class has spawned multiple generations of car models. It has quite a number of automobiles under its class, including the most common CL 500, and the CL-Class’s most commanding (but obviously also the most expensive) model, the CL 65 AMG.

        The Mercedes CL was actually recognized initially as something called the “SEC”. It was later dubbed as the “S-coupé”. It received such a popular response from the market that Mercedes-Benz spun off the car class and named it the CL-Class in 1996. Today, the CL-Class still follow goes after the same progress cycles the “S-Class” does, with some minor differences. The current generation of the CL-Class is in fact quite heavier than the current generation of the S-Class today. The CL-Class has quite a list of competitor names when it comes to the car classification of the 2+2 luxury division, including Bentley, and even Ferrari. The CL-Class trumps these other brand names’ coupé-class cars when it comes to rear legroom.

        The Mercedes-Benz CL-Class continues to push the limits of luxury, comfort, power, and ultimately, performance.
