This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Mercedes-Benz CLK Cabriolet (03-09) review.

Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

With extensive seat adjustment most drivers won't take long to find their ideal seating position, while the dashboard is clearly arranged and nicely finished. There are few manufacturers in this bracket that offer the same extensive sense of style and prestige, and this has all the neat touches expected from a Mercedes.

The CLK cabriolet is available in a variety of trims, aimed to suit your specific needs. The Avantgarde edition possesses harder lines and a less polished interior - characterised by the conscious removal of all chrome finishings – while the Elegance is softer and graceful. There’s not much legroom in the rear, especially when sitting behind a taller driver, though the seats are comfy and supportive throughout the vehicle.
