Active Parking Assist in the 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS550!

Two conveniently parked trade-ins inspired me to try out the new Active Parking Assist in our 2012 CLS550. An evolution of Mercedes-Benz parking systems, Active Parking Assist builds on Parktronic, which notifies you when you are close to another vehicle, and the Parking Assist system, which advises you of adequately sized parking spots and how to maneuver into them. Active Parking Assist will now find the spot, turn the wheel and let you know when it is done. All you have to do is click OK and handle the pedals. We must have tried it a dozen times today, approaching from both directions, and it parked us the exact same distance from the curb each time!

2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class Released – Launch Edition Arrives at Atlanta Classic Cars!

The 2012 CLS-Class was released yesterday and our first vehicles rolled off of the truck today! A Steel Grey Launch Edition and a Black CLS550. Both vehicles are spoken for…but that doesn’t mean I can’t look!

2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class Video

Here is the second quick walk-around video from my training last week. The CLS-Class was a trendsetter when it was originally released back in 2005 and this 2012 redesign will reset the standard for four-door coupes. The car is stunning from front to back! The head lights and tail lights are particularly impressive in design as well as technology. The new engine is going to be a big step forward for performance and gas mileage…not a combination you see a lot. You can get more CLS-Class details from my previous post. The 2012 CLS550 will be arriving in showrooms next month!

2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class – Pricing Announcement

The 2012 CLS550 base price will be $71,300 plus $875 Destination and Delivery. That is nearly $3000 less than the 2011 model! We expect the CLS-Class to arrive early this summer. You can see more details at the updated MBUSA website or my earlier options post. Order soon!

2012 Mercedes-Benz – Coming Soon!

2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG – Driven!

Mercedes-Benz recently offered the first test drives of the new 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG to a group of automotive journalists. The reviews are in…and it is a hit!

From Motortrend:

“The engine simply has power everywhere, all the time. There is no lag and there are no flat spots in the torque curve, just immediate acceleration all the time.”

“Shifts are fast and seamless, and even the most jaded clutch jockey would hard-pressed to find fault in how it operates as an automatic.”

“The front and rear bumpers are modeled after the SLS AMG supercar and add a menacing look.”

From Edmunds Inside Line:

“Any drivetrain setting besides C results in a well-intended evil itch to lurch forth like a giant eel grabbing a passing fish. “Yeah,” says engineer Eichler. “We wanted it to be a little more bad boy this time.”

“Dynamics are hugely improved via the new suspension and its custom settings and the Speedshift MCT transmission weighs less and can handle more torque, too. Fuel mileage is way up, and the passenger cabin remains a comfortable place for four adults.”
