Redesigned for 2000, the current S-Class line consists of four models.
The S430, the S500, and the higher-performance S55 AMG all use strong, smooth V8s, while the S600 is powered by a 6.0-liter V-12.
The S-Class is a large car, quiet, roomy, and very comfortable.
Despite its bulk and weight, it handles with surprising agility.
The ride is excellent.
The heated and vented seats are very comfortable, and the rear is roomy.
