2006 mercedes-benz cls-class Reviews and News

369 0507 Aps Review Mercedes Benz CLS500+2006 Mercedes Benz CLS500+Front Half Passenger Side View
Joining the Mercedes-Benz lineup for 2006, the new CLS-Class melds striking sheetmetal and a unique interior treatment with basic E-Class platform elements to create what is arguably the sexiest -- and definitely one of the most engaging -- four-door cars to ever wear the three-pointed star. Both the CLS500 and CLS55 AMG pack V-8 power and premium features galore, including individual seating for four and Airmatic II semi-active suspension.

Save for inveterate traditionalists or those who simply can't -- or won't -- live with its compromised rear seat space and the extra effort needed to access it, the CLS-Class should quicken the heartbeat of nearly everyone else who can ante up the price of entry. Something special happens when you inject a magnum load of pure sex appeal into any vehicle -- particularly one with this kind of distinguished family pedigree. Simply put, slipping behind the wheel of a CLS has that all-too-rare ability to make any kind of driving seem more enjoyable.

The CLS's techno-toys, like the powertrain, also may sound familiar to Benz heads. On rainy days, Sensotronic Brake Control automatically pulses the pads gently against the rotors to keep them dry. Active headlights move with the steering wheel to help peer around corners. You've got Parktronic parking assist, Linguatronic voice recognition, and Distronic radar-based cruise control to maintain a safe distance from the car ahead. Trick front seats that inflate the lateral bolsters as corners are attacked don't have a registered name, so perhaps those wily Spaniards at Seat already have trademarked "Seatronic." Those chairs are also heated and ventilated and offer a massage function that, according to the CLS press kit, "improves the metabolism of the vertebrae." The CLS also has lots of safety features that are as innovative as they are boring to read about.
