The S-Class is brimming with features and qualities that make it stand out among luxury cars.
The powerful turbo V8 that we tested provided effortless acceleration.
The plush, magic carpet ride is the best we've ever tested, and the cabin is ultra-quiet.
Even though the S-Class is large, handling agility is commendable, with quick steering.
Along with the seats and steering wheel, the door and center armrests are heated as well.
Many controls are overly complicated, however.
Forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking are standard.
Driving assistance systems include adaptive cruise control that adds convenience in stop-and-go traffic and can even change lanes upon using the directional stalk.
Coupe, convertible, plug-in hybrid, and sporty AMG versions are available.
