This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Mercedes-Benz CLK Coupe (02-09) review.

Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

The coupe’s front end has been designed to cushion any impacts, through strategically positioned crumple zones, which soften the force of crashes and boost occupant safety. Meanwhile, the CLK coupé comes with front and side airbags, ABS, traction control, and an alarm and immobiliser all as standard - though a tracker device might be advisable for added security.

When the vehicle travels over 5mph, the doors, boot and fuel flap all automatically lock, characterising the thoughtful ingenuity of the CLK coupé. The two-door design can make rear access a little awkward at times, but it shouldn’t cause too many domestic quarrels, and the boot is spacious enough for the average family's suitcases.
