Amazing balance of performance and comfort

The performance of this vehicle is amazing and it accelerates like the missile on the freeway when needed. On the other hand, even it equips with a turbo V8, when you are not pushing hard, it gives the average fuel economy 27-28 mpg. Once I made a freeway trip and stayed within 65-70 mph, I made 33mpg on average, which is same as the regular 4-cylinder cars. In terms of the comfort and craftsmanship, it is a Mercedes and it meets my requirements.

Pros

Fuel Economy

The fuel economy is way better than my imagination.

Power

It is with plenty of power and good enough to give a race with Porsche and AMG S63

Braking

The brake is good enough to save me from couple accidents

Ultimate Date Night Car
