This June, the CLK-Class coupe and convertible will become even more irresistible for customers. Not only will Mercedes-Benz be offering four new model variants, it will also upgrade the CLK models by giving them a redesigned front as well as numerous technical innovations for even more safety and comfort. For example, the range of standard features is being augmented with the all-new crash-active headrest system NECK-PRO. The new models include the three six-cylinder engine vehicles CLK 320 CDI, CLK 280 and CLK 350, which are available as both a coupe and a convertible. The cars are priced at between 41,064 euros and 53,302 euros ex works. Mercedes-Benz is meanwhile offering the all-new CLK 220 CDI coupe for 39,614 euros ex works.

For many years now, the letters CLK have been synonymous with fascinating coupe design and open-air driving pleasure. The second generation of the CLK-Class has thrilled more than 200,000 motorists worldwide since it was launched in May 2002 as a coupe. A convertible version followed a year later.
Beginning in early summer 2005, three all-new six-cylinder engines will make the CLK-Class even more powerful and sporty. The new CLK 350 with seven-speed automatic transmission as standard (200 kW/272 hp) will succeed the CLK 320, and offer 25 per cent more output and about 13 per cent more torque.
Another new model is the CLK 280, whose 170 kW/231 hp V6 engine is 36 per cent more powerful than its predecessor, the CLK 240, while the torque has been boosted by 25 per cent. The vehicles’ driving performance has been correspondingly increased as well, with acceleration from 0-100 km/h shortened to 7.4 seconds in the CLK 280 coupe and to 6.4 seconds in the CLK 350 coupe. Both V6-powered models are therefore up to 1.8 seconds faster than their predecessors.
Mercedes-Benz offers the CLK 280 coupe for 41,064 euros and the convertible for 46,748 euros ex works, while the CLK 350 costs 47,618 euros (coupe) and 53,302 euros (convertible) ex works.
Convertible debut: Powerful diesel engine with six cylinders
Diesel fans will also find more driving pleasure and dynamic performance in the CLK-Class in future, thanks to the new CLK 320 CDI with state-of-the-art direct injection diesel. The engine output (165 kW/224 hp) and torque (510 Nm with 7G-TRONIC) are extremely impressive, as is the fuel efficiency (combined) of 7.2 to 7.3 litres per 100 kilometres (coupe). The CLK 320 CDI coupe is priced at 42,804 euros ex works. Beginning in the fourth quarter of 2005, the CLK 320 CDI will also be offered as Mercedes-Benz’ first diesel-powered convertible. The car costs 48,488 euros ex works.
In the future, the tried and tested four-cylinder diesel with 110 kW/150 hp will also be available in the CLK coupe. This engine consumes only 6.4 to 6.5 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres. The CLK 220 CDI coupe costs 39,614 euros ex works.
