The CLK-Class Coupe and Cabriolet will be presented at the Geneva Motor Show with more powerful V6 engines, a more sporty design and further enhanced equipment and will then appear in the showrooms of Mercedes Benz outlets and dealerships. Newly added to this model series are the CLK 280 (231 hp) and the CLK 350 (272 hp), which offer up to 36% more output than the previous six-cylinder models. Diesel fans will also find more driving pleasure and dynamic performance in the CLK-Class in future: the new CLK 320 CDI with its state-of-the-art direct-injection diesel engine (224 hp) will shortly be available in both Coupe and Cabriolet form. Mercedes will now also be offering the smooth-running four-cylinder diesel engine with 150 hp in the CLK 220 CDI Coupe.
Mercedes Benz has further upgraded the safety features with newly developed, crash-responsive NECK-PRO head restraints. The tyre pressure loss warning system linked to ESP and ISOFIX child seat attachments are also on board as standard. Following an extensive model facelift, the CLK models now feature a redesigned front section which ensures a more imposing and dynamic look.Published 1 March 2005
