Mercedes-Benz S-Class Overview

The S-Class is brimming with features and qualities that make it stand out among luxury cars. A powerful 4.7-liter turbo V8 provides effortless acceleration and delivered 18-mpg overall in our tests. The S550 brings a whole host of advanced technology, including the ability to follow the road and stop by itself in an emergency. The ride is very plush and steady, the best we've ever tested, and the cabin is ultrahushed. Even though it's large and posh, handling agility is commendable. Many controls are overly complicated, however. First-year reliability of the redesigned sedan has been well below average. A coupe version is available, and a plug-in hybrid arrives in spring 2015.
