It is not common to hear of a four door coupe in the automotive industry. It is a variety of vehicle that was not even thought of until Mercedes created the CLS-Class. After many years and some slight upgrades this class of vehicle can now easily compete with others that followed suit and win. The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class CLS 550 Coupe is one of the four door options in this line by the luxury automaker. The power, handling and overall appearance of this coupe make it a contender among sports cars while the space and extra doors bring it alongside sedans.

Hardcore Mercedes fans are skeptical of the newer trend in design for the automobiles. The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class CLS 550 Coupe is no exception. That said, it has a much nicer visual appeal than the older versions possessed. The sleek look, sloped roofline and daring appearance of the coupe beg to be shown off around town. They do not, however, promise that the car will be well received by those who preferred the softer and gentler look of previous models. What does stand out to old fans and new is the fact that this four door coupe is not only innovative even by today's standards, but that it also has a lower price tag than it had in years past.

There simply is no way to top the interior of a Mercedes. Like other models, the Mercedes -Benz CLS-Class CLS 550 Coupe is crafted with only the finest materials. When creating the cabin it is obvious to anyone looking that the concept of the E-Class cars was relied upon heavily. There are some minor changes in the schematics, but the overall appearance is the same. Space is adequate, but the styling of this coupe doesn't offer much in the way of rear seating room.

Nothing quite surpasses the feel of a Mercedes out on the road. The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class CLS 550 Coupe gives drivers something to truly brag about. The way this vehicle seems to melt into the roadways will make passengers forget that they are riding in a fairly large coupe. Handling is precise and the speed leaves nothing to the imagination. Even the curves are no match for this vehicle as it effortless takes them in stride. A powerful performance is offered that tops even some of the best selling Mercedes brands.

Underneath the hood of the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class CLS 550 Coupe lies the heartbeat of the vehicle. A twin turbo 4.7 liter 402 horsepower V8 is what sends the power coursing through the proverbial veins of the coupe. A seven speed automatic helps it to achieve the high speeds that it acquires. Reaching sixty in around four and a half seconds is a feat not taken in stride considering the size of the vehicle. The hard part is that there is not the greatest fuel economy, but that is typically the case with high powered vehicles. This one tops out at 16 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highways.
