2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG Review

For who follows tech innovations, the Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG is like the iPhone 4S of There’s a sleek exterior, but on the the tech advancements take concepts – like adaptive control and blind spot – and push them even

For alpha techies, driving the CLS 63 is a notch more fun than around in the Lexus CT 200h, car that has a bevy of tech The fact that the CLS 63 is the AMG version you are getting the raw horsepower of an SLS combined the sleek styling of a C-Class car.

The CLS 63 is striking at first There’s a slight bubble to the vehicle from front to as though Mercedes decided to down the normal C-Class for a bit more aerodynamics. Our CLS 63, a sleek silver with chrome came equipped with rims and tires. The rims, reveal the same exposed pads as the SLS, got most of the from gathering crowds.

That’s right, this is the Mercedes-Benz test where gathered around the car in droves. just seemed to be drawn to the stance. A few commented on the front emblem that looks a medallion, and the unusually low profile. the C63 provides seating for four. a pleasant cocooning feel is not as tight as an Infinity M56x or as as a BMW 7. Our C63 had no rear television system, is something even a Hyundai has these days. The trunk is not cavernous. Rear headroom, at inches, is plenty for most

On the open road, the CLS 63 AMG has no equal in the sedan category. There are so refinements to the driving mechanics it takes a week to discover all.

One is that the adaptive control, which adjusts the of the car based on the vehicles in front of is more refined. Some like the 2012 Acura RL, do not you into a slower speed but can other cars rather Not so with the CLS 63, which slows so gradually that you barely the change. On corners, the vehicle slowed just a bit, due to the shift in the suspension than any positives about other You can nudge the Distronic Plus to increase speed one MPH or, with a tug, raise or lower in increments.

When you make a turn at the CLS 63 emits an extra light to the of the car so you can see the road easier. When the spot indicator flashes in a mirror, but you decide to push the signal anyway, the CLS 63 emits a chime. Over time, if you too long, vary your too much, or waver on the road, a chime sounds and you see an “attention” that looks like a cup. The car is suggesting that you a break for a while.

The CLS 63 goes a few steps further this even. Many like the Cadillac Escalade, auto high beams dim when another car approaches. On the CLS 63, the dim, but they do so gradually, as you are using a dimmer switch. The wait longer for the car to pass and resume. Another finding: if you jog too fast on the adaptive cruise, the lights turn on – something we not noticed in other luxury that sometimes only let you the speed gradually. There’s a “hold” mode where you can set the car in on a hill, then press gas to go.

all of these safety features, you wonder where the “AMG” comes into play. the SLS we tested recently, the CLS 63 is amazingly We clocked a 0-to-60 time of 4.5 seconds. Also like the there’s an RS mode where you down the brake, switch the confirm with a paddle press the accelerator, wait for the car to rev to 3,000 RPMs, and then for a faster start. There are two modes (S and S+) that tune the through gears for faster You can also adjust suspension for a easy ride at all times, or a road-hugging feel for tighter There’s also an all-manual where you always have to

Many of the features in the CLS 63 go one step or two what you will find in a BMW 7 or an A8. The adaptive suspension eases you around corners, and you barely notice that the car is adjusting for There’s a pleasing rumble emanates from the dual It’s not as loud as the SLS or a Camaro SS, but is a luxury sport vehicle, not a car. Handling is precise and with plenty of power. We never felt such a in any car test as we did when passing car at about 75MPH. There is a horrendous amount of power in the 5.5-liter V8 engine, which has 520 of torque, especially for passing.

We’d be remiss if we did not mention the system. We’ve never huge fans of Harman/Kardon, compared to other premium-grade systems. We’re believers The main advantage to this is that it is amazingly distinct. On songs by Mat Kearney, we noticed musical asides and synth that we had never noticed In a test of the movie Captain there is a whooshing theatrical to the surround sound. A sub in the backseat the movie come alive, during the most sonically scenes.

The CLS 63 AMG has it all: a smooth fast acceleration, an amazing No other car, including the A8 (which was not nearly as fast), or the M56x (which does not as many safety features), or the Mercedes-Benz E-Class (which is not as impressed us as much. All of this comes at a price, of course. price on the CLS 63 AMG starts at $94,900. all of the extra tech features, wheels and rims, and premium the price quickly shoots $100,000.

For those who only want the luxury sedan, with a drive, there is nowhere to look. At least from the sedan and sports mindset, not found a better car on the road.
