Arguably one of the most prestigious sedans on the planet, the long-serving Mercedes-Benz S-Class is the German automaker's flagship four-door, promising unparalleled luxury and technology for those that can afford it.
What's New for 2017
The big news is for the volume model, the S550. Two new Maybach trims – the S550 Maybach Sedan and the S650 Maybach Cabriolet – join the family, while a new nine-speed automatic replaces the heavier seven-speed auto from last year. Another new feature comes from the SL-Class roadster – Magic Sky Control is a panoramic sunroof that can transition from transparent to opaque at the touch of button. The change happens almost instantly, giving drivers some more versatility than the typical retractable sun shade.
Choosing Your Mercedes-Benz S-Class
Do you want a twin-turbocharged V8? A plug-in hybrid? How about a V12 or a fire-breathing AMG model? Or, do you need the most luxurious Mercedes available? Owners are spoiled for choice with the S-Class, with seven distinct variants and three separate body styles – Sedan, Coupe, and Cabriolet – to choose from.
Combine that with a tremendous array of interior upholsteries, exterior colors, and virtually every piece of comfort, luxury, and safety technology on the market, and it's very, very easy to build your ideal S-Class. Simply put, if you want something, you can probably get it on the S-Class.
