cabin is appropriately sumptuous
Edmunds

The 2008 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class, regardless of body style, is a handsome car with a modern yet classic Mercedes-Benz appearance. Unlike on some other Benzes, the look isn't forced. Editors at TheCarConnection.com like that all V-8 models get AMG styling details, including a different front air dam.

It is what Car and Driver calls "dignified styling"; Kelley Blue Book says the Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class' "timeless design remains fresh and alluring," adding that the "stunning Cabriolet takes full advantage of the rakish CLK lines." A more complete description of the 2008 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class comes from Cars.com: "Mercedes-Benz's three-pointed star sits at the center of a low, wide grille...twin ellipses form a single headlight unit on each side of the grille." The reviewer notes that "elegance is the CLK350's front-end theme, while sportiness takes precedence in the CLK550, [and the] CLK63 AMG has a hunkered-down stance with bulging fenders, taking inspiration from Mercedes-Benz's race cars."

Unlike the reactions to most automotive interiors, reviewers express almost equal admiration for this Mercedes-Benz 2008 interior. Car and Driver says the Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class "interior is posh," while Edmunds notes this Mercedes-Benz 2008 model as having a "cabin [that] is appropriately sumptuous, with plenty of leather, wood and elegant chrome." ConsumerGuide reports "monochromatic interior panels and carbon fiber trim," while Kelley Blue Book comments on this Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class' "familiar Mercedes-Benz styling cues."

Conclusion

The 2008 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class upholds a fine old tradition of Euro styling.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
