Pros: The awesome looks
Cons: The back seat is good for?....Who cares!
Advice: YesThe CLS is considered to be most peoples dream car. After owning one for two months, I don't want to wake up. Great design, fresh interior, superb power combine to make this vault-like sedan/coupe a masterpiece. If you're looking at BMW, Lexus, Jaguar, you must drive this car. It intimidates other drivers standing still and it takes your ego on a high octane flight. Gracious, elegant and blistering fast for a sedan... I highly recommend the car for its tremendous build quality, value as well as performance and style.
Pros: It's gorgeous!
Cons: Back seat room kind of tight (but I'm 6'1' and 270#).
Advice: Be prepared to fall in love with this car.I fell in love with this car during the test drive. The ride was very smooth and quiet. Yet, the sport 1 & 2 settings gave me a great feel for the road. I was impressed with the power of the 380 hp engine (more horsepower than the '69 Chevelle SS 396 that I drove when I was in my teens). The comfort was fantastic and the level of detail impeccable.
Cons: Lumbar seat controls and size of windows
Advice: Drive it and you'll see what I meanLove it. Picked it up this weekend. Chose a cool color. Everyone stops, stares and admires it. Its definitely a looker. There are a few detail things Mercedes could have done better but overall its wonderful.
