Mercedes CLS500 Review

love fast cars. something about getting the power of a V8 with the thrust of drive that just you going. You think of amazing like the Porsche 911 Turbo, SLS AMG Roadster, or maybe even my favorite the BMW Z4 M Coupe.

But once you get the 1/2 second of day dreaming, reality in. First the price #8211; There#8217;s no way you could swing kind of coin to get your in any of those poster cars.

And if you could, it would be highly that your wife let you. And even if she did, you have no leg to stand on to challenge any of her questionable purchases (think granite countertops, Tiffany

But the real … is even if you are in cash, these cars are plain impractical. You#8217;re a Dad which means you have at one little one floating around. How do you to drive junior around in any of rockets. And no, the front-side passenger is not an option. As you#8217;ll soon to realize, most of the really sports cars are two seaters.

And even if they#8217;re not, some Porsches, the two little in the back are not going to accommodate your Graco carseat.

But wait, I know! I can get a sportscar and get an old family beater to around with the family. right, like that fly. (Yes, I have worked through all these

So does that leave us the ubiquitous Honda Odyssey (I know Moms everywhere the thing)? Is our ceiling of coolness  the Toyota Sienna, aka Wagon?

No, we must hold out There has to be something out there, Something with some a little …-appeal, and even, family utility? Here#8217;s my for the the family friendly Dad sportscar:

It has to look good. Really

It has to have power. Some umph.

It has to have full-size for four.

It has to be automatic (yes, a concession).

It has to be within some reach #8211; let#8217;s set it of high at under $50k

Four doors!

After of research, I#8217;m proud to my findings. Below are three examples of automobile engineering that meet my critera. And you won#8217;t find these directly at families, they fit my admittedly distorted view of is takes to be a family sports

1. The Family Sports SUV #8211; Porsche Cayenne

It#8217;s plenty of cargo space, and has drive. For Dad, it looks awesome and is quick. You#8217;ll away all those Mom minivans the light turns green.

Oh and it#8217;s a Porsche. The downers Porsche maintenance is notoriosly and gas mileage is bad at 14 city/20 hwy

2. The Sports Exotic- 2006 Quattroporte

Exotic to a fault, you see these driving around the everyday. Made in Italy, experience craftsmanship unlike you#8217;ve likely seen in any automobile. You#8217;ll need a tough skin with all cars, as you may cringe a bit more little Joey comes traipsing in his snowy boots or little her cereal bar fruit filling the finely stitches leather

 The car is fast, really at 0-60 in 5.1 seconds. But all that has to come from somewhere and again, it#8217;s the gas mileage, at 12 city/18 hwy mpg.

The news is, you can possibly afford a car originally sold at above buy buying it a few years old at under The bad news is, it makes you wonder why it depreciated faster than kids attention span.

3. The Sports Coupe #8211; Mercedes Cls 500

Finally, my personal (and current car), the Benz CLS 500. As Car and Driver it, #8220;A 4048-lb supermodel#8221;. said thin is in?

The huge V-8 the CLS from 0-60 in 5.6 seconds. I pushed the car that hard, but the definitely get a thrill when I the accelerator down just a bit and you get acceleration pinning you to the back of set (or car seat in their case).

For the friendly features and amenities some creature comforts

My car has the optional Keyless Go system. At I thought who needs this? Now I imagine getting a car without it. how it works #8211; you just your key in your pocket (or for the ladies).

The car automatically knows your near to make the unlock and to make the gas door Just push a button, and the car You never need to take the key out which is a godsend when carrying three bags of and trying to control your monkeys in the parking lot and it#8217;s

A rear window shade. a press a button on the dash, and the shade magically appears and the back window. The kids it.

4 zone heating, or more each of your two little passengers get the thrill of setting own temperature.

Big trunk.

Audio plugin to hook up your jack from any music iPhone, etc. to play the favorite music.

Two little spaces with slidy between the back seats. The love storing stuff in

Safety. The CLS 500 has 5 star safety across the board. It comes both frontal and side .

From the Dad sports car perspective:

The on this car are beautiful. I#8217;ve had the car for two and it never gets old to admire its

Hugely wide rear 275/35R18 95V.  It just mean.

The smoothest automatic I#8217;ve ever felt. It has paddle shifters on the steering

The interior is beautiful and comfortable. The are heat and air conditioned! A giant of solid burled wood the dashboard.

The drawbacks #8211; again maintenance costs and low gas #8211; 14 city/20 highway.


None of these cars are to help you minimize your expenditures, but if you#8217;re looking for sporty that can also the family, there are options out to live a little while living with the little
