I'll spare you all the positives and just give my thoughts. The CLS450 is the mild-hybrid straight 6 cylinder that replaced my honking big '07 CLS550 V8. The V8 gave effortless power, the 6 has to down-shift at least one and usually 2 gears when you touch the gas. The 550 V8 gave 28 mpg on the highway, I have taken the 450 6 on only one trip and got 29 mph (cruise control at 75 mph). The front seat are way too curved, sporty I know but I ordered the $1,320 #432/Active Multicontour Front Seats hoping for a seat that I could at least reach in my back pocket to get out my wallet...but these seats are U-shaped also. I like the $1,100 DC2/Acoustic Comfort Package...the car is very quiet. I would not order the $1,100 #463/Heads-up display, nice but it fades out when you wear polarized sunglasses. The $1,290 DA3/Parking assist package is only good to get the Surround View System which is super slick it warns you when you get close to the curb. I have yet to use the Parking Assist and it only parks parallel, not perpendicular as say Ford's do. The $900 DA-4/LED Intelligent Light System is great as are the $450 heated and ventilated front seats although but I don't understand why I had to spend another $450 for #902/Rapid Heating Front Seats. I've never driven a standard sprung CLS but I like my $1,900 #489/Air suspension...just me, you probably could pass. Enough already.
