Owner Review

2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS 500 BE Review

- shares

Probably the best of many cars that I have owned. Great design, meaningful engine note, incredible power delivery, seamless transmission, perfect 'Lexus-like' overall finish inside and out.

I have no idea what I will replace it with, if ever!! I am 6'3" and the driving position is perfect, in fact I need to bring the seat forward form the rear chocks.
The sound system, TV, Bluetooth is fabulous.

I have the optional folding rear seats....brilliant for those unexpected larger loads. I have not had one warranty issue since purchasing.

This is one very very fast motor car with superb handling. The air suspension is brilliant and in Sport mode, the car handles like a true sports sedan.

The lane changing warning system is brilliant. As to are the driver warning systems like the lane drifting warning, and lane change without indicator warning!!

Auto headlamps on and auto high beam is brilliant.

One of the most significant inclusions is the Distronic Speed Control......YOu set the speed and the distance your prefer to be behind the car in front and a radar device will not let you any closer to any vehicle in front of you.

I have driven from Pyrmont to Rose Bay in Sydney, through tunnels, many traffic lights, in heavy traffic with the Distronic set and not touched the accelerator or brake pedals!!! Just amazing albeit a little nerve-wracking!
I just love this car. Some previous cars have been Range Rover Autobiography Supercharged, BMW 650i, Mercedes E350 Cabrio, Porsche 930 Turbo amongst others.

This will be a very difficult car to replace.....and with what???
