  • NOTE! I mentioned this CLS450 has a V6, but it's actually a straight six. My mistake!

    • yes, Mercedes recently went back to the in-line 6 after going to V6 in the late 90s

    • Doug DeMuro you can change the track from the steering wheel you might just not know how to use it but you can I have a 2013 E class and it works from the steering wheel

    • You also said you made a review of the new E class but that's wrong too.

    • if its good enough for the project one.......

    • Doug! Review a 2006-07 Chrysler 300 srt8" thanks.

  • 220352 -> 22-03-52 -> 22, March, 1952

  • Doug is type of guy to own a Ford GT and use worn out costco shoes on his reviews.

  • when the cars reachs 220352 km will explode and kill everybody nearby

  • Mercedes has been doing the double badging for years, my 2008 C300 sport has it as well.

  • Chinese car.

  • The first one was badass back in '04. first Sedan Coupé from a german car manufacturer.

  • I know,.....I'm an old curmudgeon, but man,...does anyone else ever gasp when seeing the prices that these cars are commanding and how their interiors are loaded with basically just plastics?

  • The tail lights kind of look like the newer Chrysler 200

  • Speak a lot

  • She's FUGLY ! 😧

  • Follow my channel for gameplays and more

  • The Mercedes Benz CLS is a very beautiful, high tech and luxurious sport sedan.

  • Am I correct that the doors have frames around the windows? Personally, I don't like frameless windows (they are a pain in winter where I live in northeast) but as a "coupe" I would not have been surprised to see frameless windows.

  • "4-door coupe" the length of a truck... yeah suuuuuure

  • "EEEdition One"

  • You forgot one cool ambient lighting feature: When you use the air-conditioning to cool or heat the car´s interior, LEDs will shine light up the vents in blue or red.

  • WHO LOVE MERCEDES-BENZ FOLLOW @benz__style ON INSTAGRAM

  • Gorgeous sport sedan? It's f*cking hateful!...

  • Coupè only means there's no frame around the window doesn't mean 2 door or sport just most of those cars have 2 doors 🙄

  • Doug is the kind of guy who wears a t-shirt under his t-shirt, socks under his socks, and another pair of shorts under his shorts.

  • Manufacturers stopped integrating ashtrays in cars a long time ago. Is this the first car you've reviewed since 1999?

  • waste of money

  • I hate the faux gauge clusters on new cars, it looks like you're playing a video game, I want a real gauges.

  • Doug is the type of guy who will invite you over for supper.

  • Doug, the type of guy who doesn't put his hands in his pockets when it's cold outside, because he's got the gloves in there

  • Lol the merc citan van has the same ashtray

  • I'm kind of surprised that your E55 doesn't have the sliding thing on the positive battery terminal. My 2013 SLK55 has one.

  • too big for me... let the Chinese buy them

  • Way too much electronics nonsense imo.

  • So jealous of you Americans that background is fantastic

  • Turbo v6? Doesnt it have the new Inline 6?

  • It looks ugly from the rear! Like a sad CLS... Benz Design is getting worse in the last few years...

  • For a more or less professional car reviewer, it's amazing how little knowledge Doug has about cars, and technical stuff in general!! :)

  • Actually, in times of downsizing and cars like the BMW 530i having a 4 Cylinder, having a 6 cylinder is not that bad!!

  • Even my Volvo S80 has next track controls on the steering wheel!

  • Renault Engine

  • Pretty sure Mercedes Benz almost always had the double branding in the front, my 1993 S124 has it and also my 1964 W110.

  • You can change the track from the steering wheel on your 2012. You just have to select media from the gauge cluster screen. Aren't you always reading owners manuals?!

  • Ставь лайк если ты понимаешь что я говорю.

  • You lost me at the track next function on the steering wheel lol. My 04 c-class has that function you just have to hit the menu button on the wheel once and then all the up arrows control the tracks so you don’t have to screw around with the center.

  • Not even mentioning the EQ boost, which is actually a mild hybrid and a huge novelty of this new I6 engine? This is why the throttle response is excellent

  • Doug - did this CLS 500 have any of the Active Assist features? (Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC®, Active Steering Assist, Active Speed Limit Assist, Route-Based Speed Adaptation, Active Blind Spot Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Active Emergency Stop Assist, Active Lane Change Assist - per the Mercedes Benz promotion page on their website.) I would have enjoyed seeing that in the video, I've only seen Telsas that have that!

  • When Mercedes says “Bentleys are beautiful! I bet we could start with that and ugly it up to fit with our other cars!” Why are Mercedes so damned ugly?

  • I'll just wait a few years to buy one used for way less money! 🤙

  • Who else thinks this kind of looks like a massive gray snail

  • Doug is type of guy to views because people want to read the "Doug is the type of guy" jokes

  • You have a next track option on the trackpads, depending on what mode you have on the displays.

  • I love how Doug is a giddy kid going through the quirks and features but when it comes time to drive he turns very serious

  • "Eco-ness"

  • Cla looks better haha

  • Doug should be the announcer on Jeopardy.... this.. is.. JEOPARDY

  • looks like bnw from the side

  • wait you sad that the amg gt coupe is coming out inhalf a year ...i just saw one two days ago

  • No next track is pretty ridiculous.

  • Doug is the type of person to moo at farm animals by the road

  • I was expecting more. The car doesn't really do much different than my 2016 A6. The display looks like a long iPad and not very integrated. The graphics look cheesy in comparison to an Audi virtual dash. Those bag handles look like they are out of the same factory in China as mine. I'd like to see a review on a new 2019 A6 because like I said the similarities are high between my car and that Benz. I'm sure my trunk might be bigger. My rear passenger climate controls offer the same options as the front, minus seat cooling and the Benz had a single vent? Like I said, I was expecting more.

  • I can already see it losing value.

  • You can actually change the "Stereo Track" by going to the "Media" setting in the middle of the gauge cluster with the left "trackpad" and then you can change the song/radio station by going up/down on the left "trackpad". Just helpfull info.

  • is the center screen a touch screen

  • I sincerely regret never reading the comments on his vids. Y’all make me chuckle

  • I always liked these type of cars a sporty but responsible sedan.. CLS / Panamera / RS7 / Giulia Quadrifoglio. would love to own one of these one day hopefully.

  • Looking forward to a wardrobe update!

  • You can EASILY change track with the track pads, and it works flawlessly :) Love from the Faroe Islands

  • Anyone else just scrolling through the comments to find "Doug is the king of guy" comments instead of watchin the video

  • Why it look ugly af in the back

  • We are living in the future

  • these things depreciate more than Venezuela dollar

  • I think it would be awesome if Mercedes started dropping this straight-6 in all of their base model vehicles (except for maybe the baby benzes).

  • You’re wrong, you can quickly change tracks from the steering wheel. Go to Menu and select the media folder to be displayed in the driver’s screen. Then just scroll with the trackpad. Greetings.

  • I don't buy a car for its infosystem! I can upgrade my PC or cellphone, if that is what gets me warm and fuzzy. Get these cars out on the road, and compare them to other vehicles in the same bracket. This is obviously a new thing. Spending more time playing with touchscreens, which will be obsolete in a year, than actually finding out what it feels to drive the MF. Get a grip!

  • Looks AMAZING

  • Doug the guy who tapes grocery bags to his Isetta and calls them NIFTY

  • Doug the type of guy who only sings the English and Afrikaans part of the South African national anthem.

  • Mercedes has so many models now it’s getting redic

  • Track pad actually does change tracks

  • I worked at a Mercedes dealership for a few months when I was younger. You can change to the next track on the older cars so I KNOW you can with the newer ones

  • This mf probably inspects every car with magnifying glasses to help discover quirks and features.

  • Yeah, i got an edition one *What is that?* Lmao that part was hilarious

  • E..... dition 1 😂😂😂😂

  • Looks a bit like an olds alero

  • I have booked yesterday.now waiting period is 5 months

  • TESLA BETTER

  • it looks like the 2019 gt 63s

  • tHiS

  • Great. a sports feature for dumbshits who like sports.

  • That Huge tacky ugly-ass front badge. That is pug-ugly and looks just awful.

  • "handling is good" 6/10 wtf

  • glc 63s coupe dream car

  • Do a m6 video

  • Please film the dodge charger ✨🙌

  • Hey doug Can u review Damon's Hurucan from dailydrivenexiotics

  • Nothing says "cock" like this car.

  • Could easily buy a GS F for the same price.

  • Go Sioux

  • Doug needs the “next track” button so he can skip to the “good” MIGOS songs 😔

  • Doug, The kind of guy who thinks that it’s weird to have two Mercedes symbols on top of each other but doesn’t notice that the steering wheel has a Mercedes symbol in the middle and two Chevy bow ties on the sides.

  • true, the added bumper makes it a bit weird

  • UGLY CAR (side look)

  • *"this"* longer than avarage spotted!
