Taking its name from “Sonderklasse” – the German for “special class” – it stands as Mercedes-Benz’s top model and has been ranked as the world’s top-selling luxury sedan.
Now in its sixth iteration, this luxury car has bestridden its segment like a colossus since being introduced in 1972.
Each successive model has set the bar higher and higher, with the S-Class effortlessly oozing style and elegance inside and out.
Quite simply, as Auto Express – the UK’s top automobile weekly – says, it has consistently set the standards for both cutting-edge technology and travelling in luxury.
Once in the car, you’ll immediately notice how quiet it is. Acoustic insulation is so high that the noise from the engine and roar from the road are practically imperceptible.
The cabin is spacious, ergonomic, and filled with top-quality materials and finishes, ranging from exquisite leather upholstery to exotic wood trim. Attention to detail is flawless, while touches such as ambient lighting add to the refined, sophisticated atmosphere. Options also include reclining rear seats.
The multi-award-winning S-Class has an elegant and imposing on-road presence but also seems light and agile. There are no lightbulbs, either – it’s all LED, giving a distinctive lighting signature. Other key styling elements are its striking shoulder and belt lines down its flanks as well as the highly sculpted front apron and air intakes.
Much lighter and more aerodynamic than its predecessor, it offers a supreme blend of efficiency and power, with up to 47.9mpg combined possible from the S350d V6 diesel, which gets to 62mph in 6.8 seconds, while the S500L petrol V8 model achieves 62mph a whole two seconds sooner.
Meanwhile, for those seeking great economy and low emissions, the S500 Plug-in Hybrid offers an amazing 100.9mpg and 65g/km respectively.
The S-Class simply bristles with technology, such as MAGIC BODY CONTROL suspension, which scans the road with cameras and adapts to undulations practically instantaneously, giving you a virtually flawless ride.
Among its many awards, S-Class was ranked top in the J.D. Power Sales Satisfaction Index from 1987 to 1990. It was also named Best Luxury Car seven times by What Car? and ranked Luxury Car of the Year five times by Fleet News.
