Driving enjoyment and dynamic handling thanks to technical innovations -- the Mercedes-Benz CL marks the pinnacle of German auto production in this vehicle class. The exclusive character of the Mercedes coupe is stamped by leading-edge technology, including features offered by no other car in the world, complemented by correspondingly innovative design.

The reinterpreted styling of the twin headlamp front end, the long silhouette and the arched roofline all enhance the dynamic accents of the two-door coupe with typical Mercedes elegance, lending it an exceptional and quite unique appeal.

The pioneering top-level technology of the CL make car-driving a totally new experience. Firstly, there is Active Body Control (ABC), an active suspension system that is yet another milestone in dynamic handling and ride comfort.

With high-pressure hydraulics and a high-performance microcomputer, this stan­dard-fitted system adapts the damping of the car body to the current driving situ­ation in a split second. As a result, Active Body Control reduces body move­ment during drive off, cornering and braking. The Mercedes-Benz CL turns corners with greatly reduced body roll, so that when it comes to evasive manoeuvring this system provides much greater safety than cars with conven­tio­nal suspen­sion technology. At the same time, the Mercedes-Benz flagship coupe with Active Body Control almost matches the high comfort level of the S-Class when equipped with AIRmatic pneumatic suspension (the S600 is equipped with ABC).

A number of other Mercedes innovations feature in the CL, including powerful bi-xenon headlamps for low and high beam, integral seats complete with Easy Entry function for the driver and front passenger, a newly developed multi-link door hinge for comfortable entry and exit and, as an option, an electronic monitoring system for the tyre pressures. The tech­nical innovations of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class are also available for the flagship coupe – from the DISTRONIC intelligent autonomous cruise control to active seat ventilation, from the dynamic navigation system DynAPS to the "Keyless Go" chip-card-controlled drive authorisation system.
