, Automotive Editor -

Few cars can match the cachet of a Mercedes-Benz S550. And with good reason. Introduced in 2005, the current-generation S-Class continues a long tradition of superbly engineered luxury sedans that provide a serene environment for high-speed travel. With nearly 400 horsepower, an S550 can manage the sort of top speed you expect from a supercar.

But it also boasts some of the most advanced safety technology seen in any car on the market. Pre-Safe, for instance, predicts a crash and optimizes the seats, windows and seatbelts to minimize injuries; Attention Assist, meanwhile, detects drowsiness and alerts the driver to erratic speed or lane control.

Major changes included:

The sixth-generation S-Class debuts in 2014 with a completely revised interior and exterior that take Mercedes-Benz's flagship luxury sedan to a new level of style. The new body features a revised grille and headlights, sharp body lines down its sides, and all-new taillights and rear bumper. The S550 carries over the 4.7-liter V8 from the last generation, which produces 429 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. The V8 mates to a seven-speed transmission that delivers power to the rear wheels as standard, or to all four wheels with the optional 4MATIC system.
