Former CLK 500 owner
By Willem on


2006 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class CLS500 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl 7A)


I traded my 2003 CLK 500 in on a CLS 500 and find the following to be better in the CLS: 1. rear entry & exit 2. better fuel consumption (7-speed vs. 5-speed gear box) 3. ride quality & handling (airmatic vs. conventional suspension) 4. steering (speed sensitive vs. conventional power assistance). The car is an abolute pleasure to drive on the highways & especially over the long distances we cover here in Australia. The styling attracts a lot of attention!

Best Features

1. Exterior & interior design 2. Airmatic suspension 3. 7-speed gearbox 4. Comand navigation 5. Steering & handling

Worst Features

Restricted rear head room: I am happy to put up with this because it is a result of the beautifull sloping rear roof line!
