Mercedes-Benz S-Class Overview

The new S-Class is quite impressive, with features and qualities that make it stand out in every important measure for a luxury car. A powerful 4.6-liter turbo V8 provides effortless acceleration and delivered 18 mpg overall in our tests. More powerful 5.5-liter turbo S63 AMG 4Matic, and 6.0-liter V12 S600 and S65 AMG versions are also available. The S550 brings a whole host of advanced technology, including the ability to follow the road and stop by itself in an emergency. Acceleration is brisk and effortless, the ride is super plush and steady, and the cabin is very hushed. Even though it's large and posh, handling agility is commendable. Many controls are overly complicated. All-wheel drive is optional.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
