The 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class is redesigned with freshened styling, new engines, and new features, including a fuel-saving engine stop/start function on CLS63 models. This premium-midsize car is a 4-passenger, 4-door sedan that shares elements of its basic design with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The CLS550 is available with rear- or all-wheel drive. It has a 402-horsepower turbocharged 4.7-liter V8 engine, which replaces a 382-horsepower 5.5-liter V8. The high-performance, rear-drive CLS63 is tuned by Mercedes' AMG division. It has a 518-horsepower turbocharged 5.5-liter V8, which replaces a 507-horsepower 6.2-liter V8. An optional Performance Package for the CLS63 increases horsepower to 550. CLS550 models have a 7-speed automatic transmission. CLS63 versions use a 7-speed automated-manual transmission that behaves much like a conventional automatic. Safety features include ABS, traction control, antiskid system, curtain-side airbags, and front- and rear-side airbags. Blind-spot alert, lane-departure warning, forward-collision warning with automatic braking, and a night-vision system are available. CLS63 models have an adaptive sport suspension. A voice-activated navigation system with 40-gigabyte hard drive is standard on all. Among the optional features are heated and ventilated front seats, keyless access/engine start, and adaptive cruise control. An AMG Performance Package for the CLS63 includes a performance suspension, increased top-speed limiter, and a power boost to 550 horsepower
