CR Model Summary
This coupe version of the S-Class is quick and luxurious. The CL comes with a standard active suspension that delivers a comfortable ride, yet handling is agile. The CL has the latest in safety and high-tech features. There is room in the back for two adults to sit comfortably. The V8 in the CL550 supplies an abundance of acceleration, never mind the twin-turbocharged V12 engine in the more powerful CL600. The CL550 comes with standard all-wheel drive.
