2006 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class CLS500 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl 7A)
This is my fifth Mercedes car and I really love this one. My last car was a 2004 S430. The CLS looks and feels more luxurious, and it gets noticed. People always think it cost much more than it actually does. The controls are well placed and the interior treatment is gorgeous. High quality materials cover every surface. You sit low in the car and you feel as though the car wraps around you, creating a very personal environment. Gas mileage is not great, but who cares, it looks and drives so well. Overall, a great car and definitely the best Mercedes I have owned. I shopped other cars including BMW and Lexus, but they didn't compare in overall design and luxury feel.
Beautiful sheetmetal and an interior that is truly luxurious. The driving experience is solid and controlled and the car is loaded with every conceivable safety feature.
Rear seat can be a bit tight for taller individuals
