    Mercedes CLS (not amg)




    Some think its ugly as hell some think its gorgeous...
    IMO achingly beautiful and visually striking, but its a Merc based on the E-class saloon with less space but costs more money... cool or uncool ?

    I say

    I love the way they look like they've had a roof chop. Slightly old man for me but with a few mods i could drive one.

    I say cool too

    Cool for sure - but not with that dash - the birdseye maple (very very black wood) looks soooo classy whereas that wood in the picture just looks naff and spoils what is a superb dash

    Actually forget AMG - its the Brabus version of this car (The Brabus Rocket) that is the fastest production 4 door car, as I understand it - something like 730hp off the shelf from a twin turbo v12, with handling and brakes to match.. its electronically limited to 217mph!!!

    I reckon any car that looks as good as this, still has 4 doors and room for the family, and is also a useful performance upgrade from an RS6 has got to count as at least 'cool' and probably more than that! Whats the competition in that sector?

    Cool car! Agree that the wood looks naff, but otherwise that's one of the best Merc interiors ever. Stunning car in the flesh - they'll be terrific buys in years to come!

    Bit of a "me too" post but yes, definitely cool and no, that interior is vomitous!


    Seem to be seeing quite a lot on the roads; whether that's because they stand out or not, I don't know.

    The curve of the bodywork makes me think of a crouched animal. Or something. hohum...

    Haha, i worked in a Showroom, and used to take the boss home sometimes in his car - one of those, with the plate 'cls 55' - a 996 911 briefly, then a new XK just before i left

    im 22 so its great to have driven those kinds of cars lol

    Those days are gone now, but id rather get paid decent money and save up for my own anyway

    I've had 2 of these and they are typically Mercedes - Over rated!

    Stunning to look at but as far as build quality and refinement go, forget it. The gearbox's feel like they were built by 5 year old children (6 seconds on times to go from reverse to drive and then a big bang as it went in.....) and if you were over 5 foot, you wouldn't get in the back.

    Mercedes do the same as the french. Put a stupid shouty engine in a decent looking car and people will forget the rest of it - Shame really.
