Awesome Luxury Vehicle for a Sports Car Enthusiast

by from Ridgefield, CT on March 1, 2016

As background -- I have driven BMW's for the last 15 years (3330xi, 545i, 335xi and 550xi) and swear by the brand. I absolutely love the driving experience of the BMW. This year I decided to buy a CLS...
As background -- I have driven BMW's for the last 15 years (3330xi, 545i, 335xi and 550xi) and swear by the brand. I absolutely love the driving experience of the BMW. This year I decided to buy a CLS550. So far, no regrets whatsoever. Maybe I've gotten soft as I turned 50, but there is no comparison to the sense of luxury in the Benz vs. the BMWs. The CLS550 has the same grunt/power as the 550xi but seems even more sporty and planted on the road. (I think the wider 285 & 255 width tires add to that feel). The seats in the CLS are incomparable -- side bolsters that adapt around corners & massaging rollers are industry-leading. My only hesitation was rear seat room -- but honestly, I don't sit back there so frankly I don't care. 95% of the time, I am alone or with a single passenger. The styling on the CLS is head-turning -- albeit somewhat polarizing. I love it! My wife prefers the lines on the more traditional look of the BWM 5 series. Lane change warning system is nice. I have a trunk basket that was an added option in my CLS and I find it very handy to keep "trunk stuff" organized. Palladian silver is a great/safe color that really hides dirt. Radio controls are bit unnecessarily complicated (even for someone who lived through 15 years of I-Drive BMWs. Navigation screen could be a tad larger. Overall, I'm extremely pleased. Got this 2014 with only 9,000 miles on it. I hope to drive it for 5 years or so.

The Mercedes CLS is a gorgeous car. It is one of the sexiest cars on the road. Its sleek shape with its sloping roofline and aggressive grille make it the perfect styling combination. When I drive this around it gets a lot of stares. My favorite feature is the LED headlights, which look incredible and very unique. The interior is beautiful, with plenty of fine wood and high-quality leather everywhere. But the best part of this car is the amazing power in its V-8 engine. This car is extremely fast! Even in corners it handles so well. I feel like I am in a rocket ship when I drive this. It is so much fun to drive, I really recommend it.

The 2014 4matic is simply the best car in my eyes. It performs super well I took it until 130 mph didn't even feel it. When u step on it. It really fly. Takes corners like a champ The airomatic suspensions are amazing. Comfort mode is my everyday mode. If aim in rush I turn on sport mode and turn my suspensions to performance mode as we'll and say no more just fly with confident. And feel the wow effect. Driving in a broken street no worries just rise the suspensions up and keep comfort mode on. Love my sexy cls. Buy it. It is worth the money. By the way I have owned over 14 MB over the past 15 years the CLS 550 4 matic is on top my list. Cheers.

Great performance and a very calming experience when desired. This car is very quiet and comfortable. The safety and convenience features reduce traffic stress - in particular the automatic cruise control and collision warnings (blind-spot, etc). In-vehicle entertainment is adequate. It does everything it needs to. Some other cars (both more and much less expensive) have a richer user experience if you like tight integration of your phone, etc.

The 2014 CLS is a very powerful and elegant automobile. I love the performance, it handles as if it is a much smaller and more nimble car. The engine is powerful and responsive. The interior is well designed ergonomically with all accessories readily accessible to the driver. It is a "drivers car".

It was time we picked up a new sedan for my growing family and I had a very hard time choosing. I currently own 3 AMG's and wasn't sure I should pick up another. I wanted something under $120,000 that had style, performance and comfort. I narrowed my search to the Porsche Panamera TT, E63-S, Audi RS-7, CLS63 and BMW M5. After much deliberation I chose the CLS63-S as the clear winner. It has everything you can look for in a sporty sedan. I guess I am an AMG fanatic:) Styling: I love the look of this car and have found many people stop to stare. The interior styling is very nice as well. My only gripe is the position of the A/C buttons which happen to sit right behind the cup holders. Ergo, if you have your latte sitting in the cup holder you need to pick it up to adjust A/C settings. Very annoying while driving. Comfort: Everyone that has sat in my car love the seats. Two caveats, if you are taller (6'+) you might find ingress/egress difficult. Also, I find there are too many seating adjustments and find it difficult to find my optimal driving position. Performance: Well, the AWD make this car lethal from a dead stop. Passing on the highway is shockingly quick. My only gripe is the torque limitation issues when mashing the throttle from a dead stop (ESP OFF) and top end drop off. I have been working with RENNtech to solve this issue. Overall, great car and I plan to keep it for a while. My wife is due for a new car next year so I might try Porsche or Audi, but for now, I'll stay all AMG!!
