Think of the 2012 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class as the two-door cousin of the S-Class lineup. Each vehicle in this class is a stylish, sexy coupe. What’s more – they all manage to combine incredible performance with svelte styling. They might not be as flashy as the SLS, but they’re much more refined.

Key Features

Key features for the 2012 CL-Class vary from one trim level to the next, but they all include incredibly powerful engines. The base model offers 429 hp from it’s twin-turbo V8, and the CL65 AMG earns the distinction of the most expensive Mercedes produced in 2012, as well as having a 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 pushing out over 600 horses. Other features include the expected technology (navigation system, stability system, etc.) as well as some of the most opulent cabins in the industry.

Changes for This Model Year

No changes were made for 2012 – the CL-Class was completely updated in 2011.

What We Like

It’s pretty safe to say that we like almost everything about the 2012 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class. There’s really nothing NOT to like, other than the price. You can expect to pony up quite a bit of cash for even the CL500 4Matic (the lowest trim). The highest trim (the CL65 AMG), actually costs almost $20,000 more than the 2012 SLS supercar.

What Concerns Us

The only real concern here (other than going bankrupt from the car payments) is the fuel economy. None of the models in the 2012 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class models get what would be termed “good” gas mileage, but that’s not the point of these cars.

Available Models

There are several trim levels in the 2012 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class. They are as follows:

  • CL500 4Matic: 4.7-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with 429 hp and 516 lb-feet of torque (15/22 mpg)
  • CL600: 5.5-liter twin-turbo V12 with 510 hp and 612 lb-ft of torque (12/18 mpg)
  • CL62 AMG: 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 with 526 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque (15/21 mpg)
  • CL65 AMG: 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 with 621 hp and 782 lb-ft of torque (12/18 mpg)

Major Recalls

There has been one recall issued for the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class, which covers all trim levels. The fuel filter flange may crack if exposed to high temperatures, potentially creating a fire in the presence of a spark or other ignition source.

Common Issues

Some drivers have complaints about limited trunk space, but overall the reviews have been incredibly positive.

Chevrolet Equinox - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Niles, Illinois
Rigo was great! He got there early, finished the job early, left everything clean. He changed my rear pads and rotors. The original quoted time was 90 minutes, he was done in about 60. He knows what he is doing and I am recommending him to all my friends and coworkers.

Rigo is a maverick hands down. Don’t take your car for work elsewhere. Especially great at Mercedes—this guy knows his profession! I will be using him for everything related to my car going forward.
