Mercedes Benz CLK-class History
The Mercedes-Benz W209 cars have been produced since 2002. They are sold
under the CLK-Class model names. The W209 is based on the W203 C-Class. It
replaced the C208 CLK-Class after 2004 which were the first car to carry
the CLK moniker.
The W209 is available in two body styles, a coupe and a cabriolet, and is
manufactured with diesel and petrol engines ranging from four cylinder
(CLK200) to eight cylinder (CLK500 and CLK63AMG). The cabriolet (Designated
with an A, as in CLK500A) features a fully automatic retractable soft top
covered by a metal tonneau that can be raised and lowered from outside the
vehicle using the key fob.
A W209 CLK 63 AMG DTM "Black Series" was produced as a MY2006 in both a
coupe and later cabriolet model. Styling cues were taken from the full race
car version for the German Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters racing series. The
car includes a wider body, carbon fiber accents, and upgraded suspension.
The CLK is designed to fill the mid-luxury market position for coupes and
convertibles. It is Mercedes-Benz's only 4-seat cabriolet. Its direct
competitors in the cabriolet market are the Volvo C70 and the Lexus SC430,
although it is available with larger engines than any of its direct
competitors. The CLK is positioned midway between the BMW 3 series
coupe/cabriolet and the 6 series coupe/cabriolet.
The CLK is a superlative vehicle whose handling is exceptionally precise
even under extreme cornering, road, and weather conditions, and whose
performance is equal to the fastest readily available sports cars on the
market. Performance is electronically limited to 135mph in the CLK350 and
CLK500 models, and to 155mph in the CLK55 model. An AMG factory option is
available for an unrestricted top speed.
The Electronic Stability Control (ESP) and Anti-lock braking system (ABS)
are both excellent aids to handling, making such feats as a 90' degree turn
on a typical two lane intersection from 50mph possible using simple hard
braking and turning with no significant fishtailing. Although the ESP
system can be manually turned off, it never actually allows the wheels to
spin completely freely. For example, the ESP system makes drifting
(intentional high-power fishtailing) impossible without shutting the ESP
system off using a factory test protocol that end-users cannot enable.
Each model seats four and in the US this includes an all-leather interior
with burl walnut trim. For Europe the models are available as "Elegance" or
"Avantgarde" versions, basically Luxury or Sport specification where the
Elegance uses Burr Walnut trim and polished alloy wheels the Avantgarde
uses alloy trim and chunky wheels. The price and specification for European
models is otherwise the same. The 4 cyl. cars wear 16" wheels While the
CLK320, CLK350 and CLK500 come with 17 inch (432 mm) alloy wheels, the
CLK55 AMG sports 18 inch (457 mm) wheels. The cabriolets have a
remote-operated automatic soft-top and sensor-controlled roll bars. Since
2000, all US cars come standard with a Tele Aid emergency assistance
system, automatic dual-zone air conditioning, 10-way power front seats and
rain-sensing windshield wipers. Seven-channel digital surround sound comes
standard. A Keyless Go system, navigation system, Parktronic system, and
bi-xenon HID headlamps are all available as options. All models come with
four side airbags.European cars differ considerably and are usually specced
depending on the buyer's needs.
The cars have a manual sport/comfort mode switch that sets the transmission
to start in 2nd gear and shift earlier in comfort mode. The new 7-speed
transmission ads about 20% better fuel mileage in real driving conditions
over the 5-speed with no loss in performance, although the additional
shifting can be noticeable. In the CLK500, at 80mph, the 5-speed
transmission runs at about 3000rpm, while the 7-speed runs at about
2200rpm. Both transmissions include automatic best gear finding so that the
driver need not keep track of which gear the car is in during performance
driving, and in the AMG model, the transmission can be set to stay in the
highest possible gear for the best possible performance.
The 5-speed CLK500 gets an average of 15mpg in real city driving
conditions, whereas the 7-speed CLK500 get an average of about 18mpg under
the same conditions. Both add about 3mpg for highway driving.
The W209 CLK-Class is 2.4 inches (61 mm) longer, 0.7 inches (18 mm) wider
and 1.1 inch (28 mm) higher than its predecessor.
In Europe there was also the CLK 200 K (1.8 R4), CLK 220 CDI (2.1 R4
diesel), CLK 240 (2.6 V6), CLK 270 CDI (2.7 R5 diesel), CLK 280 (3.0 V6),
CLK 320 CDI (3.0 V6 diesel); (all standard with 6-speed manual
transmission, automatic transmission is optional) 2004 Mercedes-Benz CLK55
