#4: Mercedes-Benz CL-Class

  • Style: CL550 4MATIC 2dr Coupe AWD (4.7L 8cyl Turbo 7A)
  • Combined (city and highway) MPG: 18
  • Purchase price: $121,671
  • True cost of ownership: $142,558

Mercedes spun off the CL-Class from its S-Class in 1998 to hone in on the line’s exclusivity. This is certainly reflected in the vehicle’s cost. The CL550 has the fourth-highest purchase price and finance interest. It also has the third-highest cost of maintenance. Sales of the car have steadily decreased over the years. There were more than 3,200 total registrations in 2007. In 2011, there were 980.
