Which used Mercedes CLK sports should I buy?
The wide range of engines has been modified since the car's introduction in 2004. There's an entry-level 2.0-litre Kompressor (supercharged) engine, two V6s and a V8. For those with a need for real speed, the 376bhp 55 AMG should do the job.
Unlike the CLK coupe, there is no diesel option, and automatic gearboxes are standard on all the models except the two lowest-trimmed cars in the range.
Four-cylinder Mercedes are generally not good news on the second-hand market, so opting for one of the V6s means you're protecting your investment and will enjoy the engine as it serenades you on faster roads. It also guarantees you an auto gearbox - another essential.
Equipment levels mirror those of the CLK coupe, so all models have alloy wheels, climate control and a CD player, as well as a remote-controlled fabric roof.
