Shizzle is urban slang that can have many different meanings, according to Snoop Dogg himself. But it is mostly used in the phrase "fo' shizzle," as in "for real" or "for sure."
Zetsche's reference to Snoop Dogg, in his German-accented English, was not gratuitous.
The magazine's editorial staff tested 24 new vehicles to find what it called the automobile that best represented exceptional value, superiority in its class, and the most significant development on the new car scene.
