The CLK goes down the 'looking good' rather than 'feeling sporty' coupé route. Its sleeker shape and big pillarless doors lend it a more sophisticated air than a Mercedes saloon. It's a competent driver and the more powerful variants can call upon considerable straight-line performance. But it feels more at home cruising to boutiques and beauty parlours or commanding respect in the office car park rather than chasing down twisty roads.

Changes in 2005 introduced new six-cylinder engines and two new diesels, including the excellent 320 CDI model.
