Mercedes-Benz CLS Coupe (11-18)

Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
No idea!

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
People love the looks, the comfort, the uniqueness (the high list price means that there aren't very many about), the prestige-yet-sporty feel, the smooth drive and the refined power it delivers.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Probably; it's handsome, unique and brilliant to drive. Its also a great value used-buy (I paid 50% of list price for a car with just 15,000 miles) and good on fuel consumption.

What are you likely to buy next?
No idea; not planning to change the CLS for some time, but another CLS would certainly be a main contender.
