2010 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class Overview

Auto critics admire the 2010 Mercedes-Benz CL for its combination of power and elegance. While other super luxury sport cars flash their sporting abilities and high-priced marquees in your face, the 2010 Mercedes-Benz CL defines itself as an exclusive and high-class vehicle without resorting to gimmicks. "Sumptuously furnished, beautiful to behold, and packed with enough technology to make a Radio Shack employee blush, the CL is a perfectly understated vehicle for showcasing your success," writes Car and Driver.

Still the 2010 Mercedes-Benz CL isn't without its flaws. In addition to a cramped backseat, which is common in this class, critics note that its COMAND multimedia interface system is difficult to operate. Most, however, agree these are minor issues that shouldn't dissuade interested car shoppers.

Other Sports Cars to Consider

If you're in the market for a super luxury sports coupe, be sure to also test drive the 2010 Jaguar XK and 2010 BMW 6-Series. Like the 2010 Mercedes-Benz CL, both are criticized for cramped accommodations in the rear cabin and difficult-to-use multimedia interface systems. However, some critics find that the XK's exterior design is sleeker and more aggressive. Meanwhile, the 6-Series, like almost every BMW, features superb handling dynamics.

Details: 2010 Mercedes-Benz CL

The 2010 Mercedes-Benz CL is available in two trims, the CL550 and CL600. High-performance CL63 AMG and CL65 AMG models are also available.

  • "Any CL-Class is very pricey, but they're all brimming with power, technology, and luxury. For the well-heeled shopper with little use for a rear seat, these well-crafted coupes are a wonderful indulgence." -- Consumer Guide
  • "The successful entrepreneur's dream car, the CL-Class is neither showy nor obviously exotic. It demonstrates an arrival at the serious end of capitalism, and offers the visionary leader who likes to call all the shots a COMAND brain that, with a button on the console to press or rotate, can set a myriad of personal function preferences, including suspension settings." -- Kelley Blue Book
