3. 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class

2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class evokes the sloping roofline of a two-door sports car, so much that Mercedes dubbed it a “4-door coupe”.  While some of that might be marketing, we love the style and luxury of the CLS.  The amount of available tech features is great, and the strong base engine means any model you buy will have at least a twin-turbocharged V8 that delivers 402 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque.
