The S-Class, Mercedes-Benz' flagship, is a showcase of luxury, comfort and technology. And each generation pushes the envelope further. The current model continues this tradition. In almost every important attribute for a luxury car, the S-Class is a benchmark of excellence.
The S brings a host of advanced technology, while upping the luxury ante on many levels. The driving experience is first class, with an extremely hushed cabin, a supremely comfortable ride, and effortless power delivery. If you don't have a chauffeur and prefer to drive yourself, you'll be happy to know that this 5,000-pound super sedan behaves like a ballerina in the corners. And in case the complicated controls distract you, and they will, the car will nudge you back into your lane and even stop for you in an emergency.
