EDITOR ANDREW STOY: it’s kind of a big, beast, but damned if the 2014 CLS63 AMG S-Model 4Matic do pretty much anything you ask really, really well. the car’s equipment level, power output and overall I’ll even go so far as to say $118K seems like a bargain. If statement is too difficult to stomach, the at least doesn’t make one as though they’ve been at the altar of German car options

Mercedes’ optional (and named) Designo interior lavishes the CLS63 with perforated leather; Alcantara and wood seem to grace surface that doesn’t get The layout is strictly last-gen — none of the floating-iPad stack that’s in the new C-class and if that’s your thing but it all works well, it’s and it’s still great

If there’s a better muscle-car than that crafted by I’m unfamiliar with it. Yes muscle car: There’s a high-horse engine stuffed a midsize coupe/sedan here; equals muscle car, and one of the throttle is all you’ll need to you. The bellow this makes when it’s is the stuff car-guy dreams are of. Almost 600 lb-ft of torque at rpm also means it just goes when you need it to, yet the car is content puttering around in hour traffic with the open and the satellite radio Huge brakes and good programming (plenty of engine dialed in) make the CLS even tractable; there’s just a of supreme confidence that the car handle any possible road with aplomb — the perhaps being potholes to the 19-inch AMG wheels and rubber-band Pirelli rubber.

So what if the CLS63 is a bit of a septuagenarian’s The car is a blast; if you’re gonna $118K, this AMG at least you everything you could want in a tidy package.

WES RAYNAL: It’s a sexy-looking hot rod for Fire it up and the twin-turbo V8 settles a beautiful burble. It sounds to pounce. And this car leaps from a stop with drive grip clawing at the pavement. With the combination of seats, terrific brakes and above-mentioned grip, you find hanging on for dear life

Conversely set everything into mode and push the Eco button and it around town as nicely as you with a terrific around-town in the soft setting (the is a slight annoyance in that it is a wee bit Bypass that in sport or + mode. I argue the biggest this car provides is in the rolling — say, 50-100 or 50 to whatever. Floor it at nearly any speed and hang on! Smooth, downshifts and jet-on-a-runway thrust.

a six-figure-stickered car I feel is worth the

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG 4Matic is equipped with a twin-turbocharged V8.

SENIOR MOTORSPORTS MAC MORRISON: Many speed-freak enthusiasts can never have power, but in reality this AMG S-Model 4Matic — and you note that “S” designation, it delivers even more and torque from the twin-turbo V8 is creeping up on as much of a JATO experience as you “need” in a four-door, road car.

Torque, of is your best friend and the accompanying exhaust gurgle each drive in this CLS a one from the instant you press the start button. On full and sailing fast toward with an aggressive roar out the back, you tend to forget car’s hefty curb and its large brakes bleed-off well to set you up for any approaching corner. A flat-bottomed, Alcantara-trimmed steering and nice driving position add to the fun of into a nice sweeper; you again become acutely of the CLS’ heft once the car a set in the corner, but not to a degree that enjoyment decreases much, if at AMG has done a nice job of making chassis handle and respond to well, and when you consider the sharp lines, the interior’s materials, fit and finish? The package a lot of sense in the realm of non-sports premium performance-car luxury.

Personally, I’d swap out five-spoke factory wheels, as the odd “nibs” extending from the of each spoke makes me like I’m looking at a of redundant tire-valve stems. at the moment think I prefer older generation of Mercedes-Benz to the most recent; Andy the tablet-like display screen on the C- and CLA-class offerings, which to me like somewhat of an aftermarket rather than the well-integrated found in the CLS et. al.

The seven-speed multiclutch will never convince you anywhere near the quickest-responding on the market, but it performs well of the time, at least for 99 percent of driving instances. As Andy mentioned, certainly in sport+ it down changes nicely braking, providing a sporty even when you are not using the to call the shots yourself. operating this transmission is a mixed bag and frustrates me at times it often hangs up between and chooses to ignore downshift especially if you attempt to snap the too quickly. These little ultimately see me leaving the gearbox in auto mode as a result.

Perhaps my only other Can the U.S. get its hands on the CLS63 Brake” station wagon?

EXECUTIVE EDITOR RORY When the CLS first made in the U.S. I thought Mercedes was for building a car that looked an overturned boat. Today, a good deal more with deep flanks and haunches out back.

And even if we the sound of that old 6.2-liter, the turbo does a fine job of thoughts of the sedans nautical it’s definitely more than boat-like these It’s a heavy car, but all power coupled with AWD and fat make hard launches if not dramatic.

The Designo (hate name) interior in our tester is special. I hate to say it, but I expected the to be more expensive. At $2,000, not cheap, but I’d have a time saying it’s not it.

If you’re shopping expensive sedans, you’d be well-served to this one a look. I still the Audi RS7 for the price, but I’m a for the utility you get from the hatch. If not a selling point for you, the makes a compelling case.

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG 4Matic receives an EPA-estimated 22 mpg fuel economy.

ASSOCIATE GRAHAM KOZAK: This is the time I’ve ever the price tag on a Mercedes-Benz AMG product. I pegged this CLS63 as a $140,000 car, and was surprised to see it stickers for a well-equipped Ford less. A bargain buy,

It’s all relative. Though you can a lot of fun for less than six figures, sedan still seems to a lot of value per luxury dollar.

And a lot of per dollar. Muscle car comparisons are fancy dual-clutches and all-wheel systems aside, this car has 577 hp and 590 of torque and knows how to use it. Power is excellent. It’s a forced-induction but it’s got grunt from so low in the rev that you tend to forget it.

to the all-wheel drive, all that doesn’t seem to have a making it to the ground, either; you get sideways in a launch (for or for worse), but you will get going in a And you’ll keep going, and and going…

The exhaust is another from Detroit’s pre-Oil days. A neighbor flagged me as I pulled out of my driveway early in the “That thing’s got quite a he said, grinning. OK, so it’s — but not that loud. And are neighbors really going to the fancy-looking Benz?

Looks-wise, you’re getting “four-door coupe” language the Germans so enjoy. Conceptually, like a high-end Volkswagen CC, but muscular haunches. It’s an stylish alternative for someone for something a little sexier the E-class, I guess. So if your subdivision is crawling with E63 AMG here you go.
