It is like driving around in a tuxedo every day.

2012 mb cls63 AMG - the performance of this car is amazing. It sticks to the ground around every corner, will do 0-60 in 3.8 sec, and looks good doing it. The teardrop 4-door coupe shape was pioneered by this vehicle and it exudes presence when you drive around in it. The maintenance is on the more expensive side, but it is fun, comfortable, and full of gadgets.

Buying my Benz was the best decision I have ever made.

It is very safe like all Mercedes Benzes in general. Drives very smoothly. It is beautiful and luxury. It has a sport drive option and a comfort drive option. It is blue efficiency. It uses a lot of gas. If it is not you der warranty the service and parts are very expensive. The insurance for it is pretty expensive. Overall I highly recommend it.

Sporty and luxury with the performance when needed.

I feel that my car consumes a lot of gas. but i still love the comfort and the luxury of the ride when i take it on a long drive.
