Truly a Beautiful Automobile Inside & Out

by Auto Connoisseur from Westport, CT on Mon Jul 28 2008

Really fun to drive. Handles absolutely the way you would expect. Could use a little more headroom in rear, but 6'1" & under can be comfortable. The cabin is perfect and makes you believe what you have just spent to own this beauty is worth every penny. Styling & performance simply put is the ultimate. Everyone just stares at this sleek yet bold edition to the Mercedes Benz family.

CLS in northern IL

by dfinne7164 from Rockford, IL on Thu Aug 28 2014

Great car. Beautiful and sleek design. Headlamp cluster leaves a bit to be desired. 5.5L natural aspiration 8-cyl motor is very fast Mileage suffers because of this 4 seater Large trunk

Beautiful and reliable driving machine!

This is a beautiful and reliable vehicle. Extraordinary styling, handling, safety, and comfort. When compared to other vehicles, it can arguably be considered the best in its class.

Mercedes 4 Life this car is unbeatable!!!

by Benzo from Oklahoma City OK on Tue Jul 17 2012

This is a awesome car has it all. Luxury, Sport and is a very high performance vehicle? It's a head turner ? One of the smoothest rides I've ever driven? now I know why Mercedes Benz is the cream of the crop. It makes you not to want to stop driving it? The sleek contour body style is not only unique but has a jazzy and classy look that's not your basic european cookie cutter design? If you drive it you will want to take it home. Thank You Mercedes Benz for a job well done?

Our Take on the 2009 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class


When you drive the 2009 Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG high performance coupe, you need an escort, a passport or any other reliable radar detector.

This machine flies.

A colleague and I were testing the new Mercedes for what we thought would be a long haul to Joliet, Ill. But somewhere along the trip, we either broke through some time-space continuum or we were accidently speeding. By the time the iPod rambled through the second play list, we were nearly there.

It's easy to do in this racing-enhanced Mercedes that has four doors but Germans insist on calling a coupe.

They could call it weiner schnitzel, that wouldn't change how great it is.

The outside world is muffled away. The bounce of concrete seams... Read More
