2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS550


As soon as the journalist starts to talk admiringly about automotive-style, the designer's eyes begin to run. I've met a lot of journalists who have had a degree in automotive engineering, but with respect, I am only a specialist in automotive design. And it provided that the average buyer to best help the person who is knowledgeable in the thermodynamics of fluids and problems with the suspension. But when there is something like 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS550, we, journalists, simply have no words.

The interior has undergone several changes. And despite the fact that the interior looks like other contemporary Mercedes saloons, there have refrained from using some cheap materials and layout of the last four-door coupe (M & B should begin to offset the costs of developing the original model and to invest additional funds in the interior decoration).

As in the model CLS63 AMG, which we have already reported this year, in 2012 CLS550 V8 naturally aspirated abandoned in favor of a new engine with dual turbocharger. It is possible to reduce harmful emissions and reduce fuel consumption to an expected 14.7 l/100 km city and 9 L/100 km on the highway. Unfortunately, the labeling system Mercedes continues to confound poorly informed fans of the brand. While the last engine was a 5.5-liter V8, this new (twin-turbo) decreased to 4.6 liters. Forced additional pressurization of about 89 kPa, the car feels very well with 402 hp under the hood (at speeds from 5000 to 5750) and maximum torque of 600 Nm (from 1800 to 4750 rpm). Even conceding on performance CLS63 (518 hp and 800 lb-ft), equipped with a seven-speed automatic gearbox accelerates to a new Mercedes "hundreds" of slightly more than five seconds. And if you consistently compare the two models, the rear-drive CLS550 confidently come forward as a convenient means for the daily commute.

Mercedes continues to produce excellent gear - and a new seven-gun, even in the "Sport" surpasses last Speedshift MCT (mounted on the CLS63). Transmission, can, and do not switch dizzyingly fast, but it happens smoothly and size. And in combination with an irresistible 4.6 - liter turbo, this will lead to the fact that high-speed motorway will really speed, and back roads will take almost no effort. Steering (rack and pinion mechanism with) - with amplifier and electro-mechanical speed-sensitive. Steering wheel tightens and relaxes during rotation of the parking lot. It leaves your palms enough effort to ensure that they can feel the road, but are not strained at the slightest movement of the machine corrections. The same applies to the standard Airmatic suspension adapts with adaptive damping, which, together with the three-tier independent front and multilink rear make the ride comfortable in all conditions. With regard to any conditions that would be available and all-wheel drive 4Matic, which will make the CLS independent of weather conditions.
