2009 Mercedes-Benz CLS550

To me, the CLS is all about styling. The first time I ever drove a CLS, a guy stopped next to me at a light rolled down his window and told me that it was the most beautiful car he'd ever seen. I've been driving test cars for close to twenty years now, and that's the only time I've ever had that happen to me. It's truly a testament to the emotions this car evokes.

So sure, maybe it doesn't handle with the precision of the XF, or with the aggressiveness of its AMG counterpart, but for pure presence, the CLS is hard to beat.
