Mercedes-Benz CLS 350 BlueEfficiency
The new Mercedes-Benz CLS BlueEfficiency has been reviewed across many experts in America and has received some fantastic praise. That may not come as a surprise considering that it is a Mercedes-Benz after all and the fact that it is said to command a huge price tag of $159,000.
The car contains a huge 3.5 litre six cylinder engine with petrol direct injection technology. It uses a seven speed automatic transmission gearbox and is also a rear wheel drive car.
Large but agile
Firstly we have to discuss the overall size of the vehicle, as it is quite large. The car seems to have a never ending length with a long boot and wide frame. It’s so long that it looks similar to a limo.
Despite the car’s large frame, there is plenty of agility behind the wheel making the driver feel as if they are inside a car that is indeed a lot smaller.
High level performance but would you use it?
The performance of the car could be envied by those who drive sports cars. It must be said that owners of such a classy and elegant vehicle wouldn’t probably drive the car in a sort of fashion whereby the accelerator is being thrashed and the car is bending round corners at high speeds. However if needed, the car has the capability to perform in such a way which brings about peace of mind for the driver. You can’t have such a high powered engine without the car being able to generate a breath taking performance.
Based on the Mercedes-Benz E-Class?
Oddly enough the car is based on the Mercedes-Benz E Class. You probably never have guessed with the vehicle looking more like a CL coupe. The lowered roof line gives away the look of a coupe type of vehicle rather than a family sedan styled vehicle.
The Mercedes-Benz CLS has a large amount of safety equipment within. There are 11 airbags as well as driver warning systems. Lane Keeping Assist systems help drivers control the large vehicle. The Assist driver fatigue detection system does exactly what it says on the tin and is quite effective at doing so.
