EDITOR WES RAYNAL: Mercedes’ line is arguably the smoothest big on the market. Beautiful inside and it rides better than a BMW mostly because the BMW rides on tires. The CL powertrain is smooth a turbine, with power on in just the silkiest whoosh imperceptible shifting, quick and a nice hot rod-like growl in the revs. It reminds me of having a jet.

It’s a big car and at times drives big at lower speeds. It feels and wieldier the faster you go and the car’s Body Control system the bigness and weight in check for the most part, so long as you pretend you’re in a sports No, in the CL, you just want to glide in supreme comfort.

Build is over the top, as are the interior The back seat is small, but because this car is for the driver and a passenger. Front seat is fine. Gimmicky stuff active seat bolsters and I turned ’em off and never with them again.

Throttle gets more responsive for a extra spring in the CL550’s when you smash the gas pedal.

It’s hard to put a finger on I’d call my favorite of this CL550. It could be the open and airy feeling of the the amazing luxury touches or its on the road. I know it’s a overall package, which it be for this kind of money.

NEWS EDITOR GREG I love cabins without That’s an odd feature to pick out in a car costs as much as a decent house, but the breezy experience is when navigating an expressway Swaddled in these kinds of it’s like being on a yacht.

A big coupe is truly a luxury machine, and if you have the this is certainly a decadent The styling, the proportions — it all elegance and substance.

The 429 hp is “adequate” if you The engine is a rocket, but this car feel a bit heavy (4,619 There’s plenty of power on it just feels like a little watered down all of this equipment and girth. reaching cruising speed is no and the seven-speed automatic is excellent. For a car, it tackles curves and well, and the steering is precise. As note, the quality of the build to stern is spectacular. The CL500 an A from me, but it should for this
