The cabin, based on the S-Class saloon’s, gives you almost too much to take in at first and it takes a while to become familiar with the plethora of buttons. But it’s well planned, roomy and plush, with just about everything you could ask for as standard. Some of the fittings could be classier, though.
Mercedes-Benz CL Coupe space & practicality
Although today’s CL has smaller exterior dimensions than its ungainly predecessor, the impressive cabin room remains. The rear has been sculpted to seat only two, and although access to the back is slightly undignified, there’s ample space once you are there. The boot will easily take a couple of large suitcases, too.

The CL is appropriately luxurious, with climate control, cruise control, a CD multichanger, alloy wheels, metallic paint, a full satellite-navigation package and leather upholstery, plus electric motors to work the seats and windows.
