Mercedes-Benz has revised the CLK range just two years after the car was launched. Although visually unchanged, there are a raft of changes to the interior and under the skin, including uprated steering, a shorter gearshift on the six-speed manual, bi-xenon lamps with cornering light function and the new, optional 7G-Tronic seven-speed auto gearbox.

The interior gains a new audio unit with Europe-wide sat-nav, as well as redesigned switchgear in the centre console, and run-flat tyres will also be available for the first time. Meanwhile, the hot CLK 55 AMG is improved with new composite brakes and a revamped AMG sports exhaust.
