Open Top Deluxe
2008 Mercedes-Benz CLK350 Cabriolet
short: A classic midsize convertible.
The CLK350 offers a good compromise. It has style, with a classic soft top and abundant sport ability. While the 550 has a V8 engine capable of a track-going 382 hp, the trusty V6 in our tester, coupled with the seven-speed touch shift transmission, delivers plenty of opportunities to annoy the authorities. We never felt a lack of power. The auto is easy to drive and maneuvers admirably in tight situations. You can take it on the open road as well, and not be disappointed.
If you are in the market for a good year-round convertible that can sit four passengers, then you should consider a test drive. With ten-way power adjustable front seats with three-position memory sharing, this stylish (note the hand polished wood trim) ride is made easy.
You are seventeen seconds away from sunshine with wind in your hair. Once closed, the soft top provides total comfort and good sound proofing. Be independent with a digital, dual-zone automatic climate control system complete with a dust and pollen filter. There are plenty of other goodies, which are too many to enumerate here. We are confident the Mercedes-Benz CLK350 will give you plenty of satisfaction.
