  • Overview

The 2007 generation of the CL-Class, or C216, is available as CL500/CL550 and CL600 as well as a C216 ultra high performance CL63 AMG and CL65 AMG. The CL 600 will do 0-62mph in 4.6sec which tells you a lot but when you consider it achieves this with the feeling of being driven stately and moderately in a high end limousine you get more of an idea about the quality of the CL. This is a special vehicle in the Mercedes range with a reputation for producing an effortless drive.

Whenever unwanted body movements arise, strategic sensors dampen all low frequency body vibrations.
