While its looks stunning to the eye, Mercedes-Benz CLS is an ultimate champion on the road, whether it’s a long ride or a rough ride. The energizing function is of the car is a highlight of its specifications, since it provides the rider with videos and instructions to relax and get comfortable in a long rough journey.
The engine is designed so as to provide a brisk, smooth and rewarding ride. The 450’s engine has 362bhp, but that’s boosted by an extra 21bhp thanks to an integrated starter motor/generator that sits on the back of the engine, between it and the standard nine-speed automatic gearbox. This mild hybrid system is not just there to boost power, but also to make engine response better while you are waiting for the turbocharger to get going properly, and to handle the stop/start function smoothly. The top AMG Line trim has air suspension, and they give the CLS a good ride quality, absorbing lumps and bumps effectively, while retaining excellent control of the cars’ body movements. The 18in wheels and winter tires, will offer a more absorbent ride. The international reviews so far mention that the CLS, for a car of its weight, is highly entertaining without sacrificing anything in the way of ride quality or refinement.
