Benefits of Driving a 2011 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class Sedan

Mercedes-Benz is all about comfort, luxury, and refinement, and the 2011 CLS-Class executes all of these exceedingly well. The CLS-Class isn't a large vehicle, and the word 'sedan' doesn't seem to fit this smallish car with four doors, so Mercedes-Benz calls it a 4-door coupe. A computer-controlled 7-speed automatic transmission is mated to a large V8 in the CLS550, while the upper-level CLS63 will please performance enthusiasts with its very powerful 6.3L V8 engine that generates 507 horsepower. The brakes, suspension, wheels, and even steering wheel on the CLS63 were designed by AMG. The result is a very comfortable--and very capable--performance car.

What's new for 2011?

For 2011, the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class carries over largely unchanged, pending a complete redesign due in 2012.

Model Strengths

  • Big car in a smallish package
  • luxurious appointments
  • mountains of power and performance.

Model Review

Nobody executes the combination of performance and luxury like Mercedes-Benz, and the 2011 CLS-Class represents Mercedes-Benz' take on those two attributes in a mid-size sedan. The interior dimensions are on the small side--particularly in the rear seat--so Mercedes-Benz has elected to call it a '4-door coupe.'
