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


Mercedes' sexy cat (who would ever have dreamed. . .) purrs its way into your heart and loins in the first 20 seconds of road time. A Jaguar-killer. Drive feel is far more powerful than the engine stats suggest and has no hint of the E-class parts and staid chassis from which the car is supposedly derived. Probably the best fusion of sports car and sedan features ever achieved in an assembly line model. This is an exceptional car that Daimler Chrysler could sell for $20,000 - $40,000 more than it's listed for.

Best Features

You name it. This is 'car as art' in the best possible sense.

Worst Features

During night driving, dashboard gauges reflect directly onto windshield (due to extreme slant angle of windshield. This interferes with visibility. Also, four-passenger seating is a gimmick to lend additional cache and identity to the car -- there should be a 5- passenger seating option.
