More Used Mercedes-Benz Coupe Reviews /All Mercedes-Benz Cars

If buyers want the ultimate in a two door coupe from Mercedes, they have to look no further than the Mercedes-Benz CL Class CL65 AMG Coupe. Not only will this alternative give the same luxury and elegance that the Benz is known to provide, it will give more power than could possibly be expected from a large coupe. It's easy for most to look at Mercedes as the provider of luxury sedans, but the CL65 takes on it to an entirely new level once drivers get behind the wheel. Four passengers may fit easily inside this coupe, but the power it exudes would rival most sports cars.

ReviewitOnline Ratings are based on a number of factors including reputation, appearance, model age, engine & other comparative aspects.

The outer appearance of the Mercedes-Benz CL Class CL65 AMG Coupe lends itself to serious envy among others. It starts with a sporty design that is based loosely on the S-Class from Mercedes. Though much of the foundation between the two cars is similar, there are vast differences in the looks. There is a distinctive style to the CL65 that is not based on any prior models of car from the automaker.

Where the exterior of the Mercedes-Benz CL Class CL65 AMG Coupe leaves off on the resemblance to the S-Class of its roots, the interior picks right back up. The same lavish elegance that brings the S-Class to the top of the playing field among luxury sedans has people looking twice at this two door coupe. Decked out with all leather and wood, the CL65 is the pinnacle of refinement. The large size of the vehicle shows easily that there is plenty of room for the four passengers that the car is designed to hold. No one will feel cramped or suffocated on long trips even if they are stuck in the rear of the car. Hopefully they also will not have any extra luggage because cargo space is not big enough for excess baggage.

The biggest surprise when it comes to the Mercedes-Benze CL Class CL65 AMG Coupe is the enormity of the car. Those that look at it before reading the specs can easily be misled into believing that they are dealing with a slow and monotonous vehicle. This could not be further from the truth. In fact, the CL65 is among the fastest coupes on the market in this class. This power and speed add to the overall driving experience that one will receive. The comfort afforded combined with the simple handling and increased power allows drivers and passengers the ultimate experience on the road. Whether or not there are competitors that can offer a smoother ride is debatable, but they certainly cannot offer the same combination one receives with the CL65.

While the Mercedes-Benz CL Class CL63 AMG Coupe would still be a classic example of style, it certainly would not have the same get up and go if it had a less powerful engine. Fortunately, it does have one of the most powerful engines available. The 6.0 liter 621 horsepower V12 will make sure that everything is left behind on the road. It is combined with an AMG tuned five speed automatic that helps it get from zero to sixty in a little over four seconds. For a car this size, that number is amazing. It does suffer in fuel economy, however, as it gets no more than 12 miles per gallon in the city and 18 mpg out on the highway.
