One fuel-efficient feature of the 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG is start/stop technology. Any time the AMG is in drive or neutral with the brake pedal depressed, the engine stops. The engine starts again when the brake is released.

Despite a slightly longer and wider body style, all three of the CLSes offer better fuel economy than that of previous years.

With special front control arms and wheel hub carriers that provide wider track and more negative camber, the 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG has even a better grip in high-speed curves.
