I traded my S500 for this car. I traded my Jaguar XKR for a SL500. The CLS55 is faster than my XKR and holds two adults in the back seat. The trunk is enormous. This is my daily driver. I love the sound, steering feel, power and look. Unbelievable to have something this cool and this practical. I am a senior and this is our sedan.
Appearance, power, sound,large trunk & comfort. Love the dynamic seats. Real rear seat room (unlike the BMW 645). The drive is better than a BMW ... and that's saying something. This is a driver's car.
Higher tech. Needs rear camera like Lexus and Infiniti feeding the GPS screen when backing up. Stereo still weak. Does not compare to either Infinit's or Lexus sound system. Awkwardness of getting in and out of back seat is worth the look of the lines of the car.
