An Over-the-Top German Rocket

Not happy just regular luxury like the E-Class, Mercedes-Benz in 2004 that something more style, flash and was in order. That year, the introduced the CLS-Class four-door starting an industry-wide onslaught as BMW and Porsche all vaulted onto the

But that was 10 years ago and stagnant don’t last long in the price bracket. To keep fresh, the CLS was restyled in 2011 and for it receives a serious shot in the arm the “AMG-S” package.


For the first time on an AMG sedan, the CLS with an available high-performance of Mercedes-Benz’s 4Matic all-wheel (AWD) system. Not happy just an AMG trim? This higher-performance S-model receives a limited-slip rear differential, red calibers, black Nappa seats, silver seatbelts, titanium wheels and a flat-bottom AMG wheel.

The biggest boost for the AMG-S however occurs under the In the 2014 CLS 63 AMG, the 5.5-liter V8 has been cranked up to now generate 577 hp and 590 of torque. With Mercedes-Benz’ start mode (launch the 4,122-lb car is said to manage the 60 mph in a forgetting-about-physics 3.6 seconds. That is quick for any car, never a composed luxury Q ship.

Sound, Please

The V8 itself a great noise under acceleration, but is a bit too quiet overall. We wish there was an active setting that allowed on demand. While on the topic of the V8, after a week with our car during winter, it still a not-horrifying average 16.2 The EPA says average fuel should be 18 mpg, but the penalty we saw isn’t surprising considering the winter weather.

By stepping up to the AMG-S, the regular 155 mph speed limiter has been allowing the CLS to apparently hit 186 mph. Not were we not able to verify performance number, but we couldn’t any performance numbers thanks to a of snow and below freezing The all-wheel drive system did its to keep the car accelerating regardless of conditions, but more potential was lurking behind the massive star dominating the grille.

not trying to grenade the engine and with race start the car feels a bit sluggish off the line. doesn’t feel all quite as if there is some turbo lag or to keep power reduced But once under way, the car the driver back and scampers the road like a kid chasing an ice truck. This is one of those that want to travel above speed limits at all

MCT Seven-Speed Surprises

A lot of the impressive performance produced by this car can be to the seven-speed MCT transmission that is Mercedes-Benz’ regular seven-speed minus the torque converter. The can be set in four modes: eco, sport plus and manual. in the sport plus mode, it keep the car in a ridiculously high-ratio at highway speeds. It will, provide quick downshifts moderate to heavy braking and its behaviour when you’re to frolic along some back roads.

On the center resides an AMG button that depressed, turns on the “manual” mode, enters the suspension sport plus mode and the vehicle’s current coolant and oil Both of these are important as need to reach 176 degrees before race start can be engaged. As well, there is a lap within the AMG menu screens, but the of an owner taking a CLS 63 AMG-S on a racetrack are slimmer than Comes Honey Boo-Boo a Golden Globe award.

Brakes that Could

AMG equips its low-flying missile a set of substantial brakes and multi-piston These feel as though will stop the car instantly at any Brake feel is firm and in daily driving but does a minor adjustment period due to hair-trigger response.

The adjustable AMG air can cycle through normal, and sport plus settings. In mode, the car is fairly smooth but can be by rougher roads and larger In sport + mode, the car becomes jarring and should be reserved for the smoothest of roads. We get that is more of a “track setting”, but as earlier we doubt this car see many lapping days. with a 14:1 steering the CLS’s portly weight can be at all times and is not keen on changing quickly. This car truly is a menace, not an apex monster.

and Button Filled-Interior

Inside, the CLS is what should be expected a $100,000 Mercedes. Some members find the multi-button design to be out of date while still find it elegant. We all that the carbon fiber across dash is a nice as well as the Alcantara headliner and inserts on the flat bottom wheel.

Thanks to the coupe-like profile, and rear headroom is a bit lacking. the front seats are comfortable and we the adjustable active side Rear seat legroom is a bit snug at only 35 inches, but the is generous at 15.3 cubic

While on the topic of the coupe profile, the new CLS seems to have a little something compared to the generation model. Maybe we are used to the idea of a four-door now, but the new car feels less and attractive than the old model. we do like on the car are the aforementioned matte red brake calipers, full LED and carbon fiber trunk lid

The Verdict

The flamboyant CLS 63 AMG-S is the ideal ride for well-off thanks to its excessive power, and a price tag to match: $118,115. For the CLS 550 4matic would be more enough car or even the more E 550. One thing is certain, is a luxury car out there for every under the sun now, even looking for an insanely fast drive luxury four-door
