Mercedes-Benz’s CLS550 4-door coupe for 2015 might not be the best car for passengers, but it is a driver’s dream come true. With its twin-turbocharged 4.7-liter V8 pumping out 402...
... horsepower, the CLS550 can rocket off the line, pass with authority and cruise effortlessly at high speed for hours on end. If quick isn’t quick enough, a move up to the all-wheel-drive 577-horsepower CLS63 AMG S 4Matic is in order. Bolstered by AMG’s impressive suspension and engine tuning, the CLS63 AMG S can dash to 60 mph in less than four seconds, placing it in line with the world’s best performance sedans including the
Audi S7 and Porsche Panamera Turbo. From behind the wheel, the CLS inspires confidence in hard cornering and high-speed lane changes, feeling both smaller and lighter than it actually is. Around town, the CLS rides hard but is still civilized enough to earn its 3-star badge.
