Major Improvements! - 2016 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class
By abacomike - March 31 - 12:08 am
I owned a 2014 CLS 550 but the 2016 CLS 400 is a major advancement in technology and performance. The NAV/DATA screen is huge and well positioned. The mouse controller is more functional and a bit more complex but once you've played with it for a time, it becomes second nature. Fuel economy is superior 20/30 compared to the V8. The 3.0 V6 twin turbo is almost as fast as the V8. I bought the staggered 19" multi spoked wheels with ultra high performance summer tires. Outstanding balance, handling and cornering. This is my first Designo Diamond White Metallic car - very rich looking and very visible at night. Transmission is smooth and responsive and cornering, handling, acceleration and stopping distance are superior. Remember, this is a 4-door coupe so rear seat room is limited, however front seating is luxurious and very comfortable. Exterior visibility is excellent to the front, but limited to the rear due to sloping roofline and small rear window. Car comes with rear camera which is essential when backing up. My car has Premium 1 & 2 Pkgs., rear spoiler, wheel locks, Illuminated Star, sport steering wheel (flat bottom), Lane Tracking and Blindspot Monitors, and light interior leather with black carpeting and headliner. Mirrors fold in automatically. The audio system is the best I've ever heard in a car and you can connect iPhone to audio system using USB cable in console. It acts like an iPod and charges the phone at the same time. The new dash screen is HD - amazing Traffic and Weather displays. This is a more "personal" vehicle rather than a family vehicle. The new LED front lights are amazing and light up the road. They are adaptive and have auto-adjusting bright lights. I love the car - a big improvement over 2014z
Deceptive advertising - 2016 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class

Under key standard features it say hands free blue tooth interface. This is not the case. With even the upgrade number one you can not make voice command dialing. The hands free part is a joke. They expect you to spin knobs or scroll buttons on the wheel why you are driving which is not possible. read the part under build your car, it really is a scam. My E class had the voice dialing in the number 1 upgrade. This car is 15,000 dollars more the E class and does not have the standard features of my wife's new Malibu. Second issue even when you buy the M-Brace you can not get directions down loaded to your car. You had to buy upgrade number 2. There is no way for you to know that based on their web site. My last 4 Cadillac's this was standard stuff more then 10 years ago. Now that I got stuck with a car I do not find functional there is no way to change out the control head that offers this option at any cost.
