The new CLK-Class Cabriolet achieves outstanding figures in aerodynamics (Cd value 0.30), noise comfort and boot capacity (390 litres). In the area of occupant safety Mercedes-Benz has made further progress with a high-strength body structure, head/thorax sidebags as standard, adaptive airbags for the driver and front passenger and belt tensioners on all seats. Comfort is also exemplary in the new Mercedes Cabriolet, which now offers even more interior space. The newly developed, multi-layered fabric roof is designed for optimal noise damping and operating convenience, opening and closing fully automatically at the touch of a button or by remote control. The outputs of the four, six and eight-cylinder units for the new CLK-Class Cabriolet range from 163 hp to 367 hp, while fuel consumption has been reduced by up to seven per cent.

The soft top available in black, blue or grey is a new development. It opens fully automatically (also by remote control), disappears completely beneath an attractive cover in the rear within a few seconds and immediately provides the purest form of open-air driving enjoyment in conjunction with fully lowered side windows. Neither is any manual operation necessary when closing the soft top, as the hydraulic unit does everything necessary and automatically locks the roof in place on the upper windscreen frame. The multi-layered lining of the soft top provides outstanding thermal insulation and keeps the interior noise level extremely low. The slim C-pillars and large side and rear windows offer excellent visibility to the rear even when the soft top is closed. The new CLK-Class Cabriolet is the best in its class where interior noise, thermal insulation and all-round visibility are concerned.
