The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
Bristling with performance and technology, the 2013 Mercedes-Benz CL Class still is cozy enough to coddle the super-wealthy. With the addition of a new four-door Gran Coupe and M6 Coupe, the 6-Series lineup covers the full range of personal luxury, from soft and elegant to sharp and athletic.
