Smartly Delivers Mutually Exclusive Qualities
By rhut on


2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class CLS550 4MATIC 4dr Sedan AWD (4.7L 8cyl Turbo 7A)


luxurious ride yet sharp handling, smooth and powerful yet efficient engine, efficient all wheel drive, craftmanship and styling;
Incredible engineering achievement that grows on you with every mile and challenging road traveled; able to deliver traditionally mutually exclusive qualities:
adaptive air suspension gives you flat cornering and sports car like reflexes with an S-class like ride quality; biturbo V8 engine pulls, revs, and hangs at the throttle like a sports car engine yet delivers routinely real world 28 mpg on spirited long distance highway/country road driving in a 4wheel drive 4200 pound car;
the most impressive Mercedes in a generation !

Best Features

V8-engine air suspension interior and exterior design solidity, heft and agility full LED lights and adaptive high beam make night drives a breeze; Cooled/heated active multicontour seats Attention assist

Worst Features

a little head bending required to get into rear seat for 6 footer, once there no problem; small price to pay for beauty;
