Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

What you must know before buying the Mercedes-Benz S-Class

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - November 7, 2019
  • 2020 S-Class is in stock
  • Unadvertised incentives remain (2019)
  • Lease: From $949/month (2019)
  • Financing: No APR deals

2020 S-Class is open for orders:

The 2019 S-Class is in showrooms now. Also in showrooms now is the carryover 2020 S-Class. If you cannot find one that suits your needs, you can always special order one and wait two to three months for it to arrive.

The 2019 S-Class' offers remain the same in November, but the 2020 S-Class gets an updated promotional lease deal.

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz S-Class' offers are available nationwide and expire on December 2, 2019. We expect no new offers on the S-Class for Black Friday.

Big incentive boosts:

Unadvertised incentives on all 2019 S-Class Sedan models remain huge, as they range from $7,500 in the S450 to $15,000 in the S560 plug-in hybrid.

The 2020 Mercedes S-Class continues with its unadvertised dealer cash incentive worth up to $2,500 off any S-Class Sedan.

Remember, dealerships are not obligated to give you any of this incentive, so you may need to shop around for the best deal.

No APR deals:

Mercedes offers no financing deals on the 2019 or 2020 S-Class, but you may find a dealership with special financing on the local level. Comparison shop to find the strongest rates.

Lease from $949/mo.:

The 2019 S450 Sedan's lease starts from $949 per month with $9,343 due at signing. With effective monthly costs starting from $1,209, the 2019 S-Class' lease is not good value for its MSRP.

The 2020 S-Class's promotional lease gets an upgrade in November. This 36-month deal on the S450 Sedan runs $1,019 per month ($30 reduction) with $9,413 due at signing ($30 reduction). With an effective monthly cost of $1,280 ($31 reduction), this is not a good value relative to its MSRP.

All S-Class leases allow up to 10,000 miles per year.

2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class: Model Preview

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - June 24, 2019

Model Preview

The sixth-generation Mercedes-Benz S-Class debuted way back in 2014, but in a niche class that rarely sees much change, it remains fresh relative to its key competition. Despite its relative freshness, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class will receive a handful of mild updates and one new special edition.

Inside and out, not much will change or the 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, as it will continue with its three body styles — sedan, coupe, and cabriolet — long body, sleek lines, and top-class interior amenities and materials. The sedan model will, however, gain a new S 65 Final Edition model that will add an Obsidian Black Metallic exterior finish, 20-inch matte-bronze forged alloy wheels, matte-bronze air inlets, high-gloss-black tailpipe trim, AMG crest on the C-pillar, black Nappa leather with copper-colored stitching, carbon-fiber trim with copper contrasts, and edition badging.

Buyers looking to upgrade the looks of the S-Class Coupe will be able to do that with the 2020 S-Class’ new optional AMG Aerodynamics Package.

In the features department, the 2020 S-Class Sedan will gain two new standard features, Active Parking Assist and KEYLESS-GO. The coupe and cabriolet’s once-optional Premium Package will be standard in 2020, adding active multicontour front seats with massage, a 360-degree camera, and front variable headrests to its list of standard goodies. The coupe and cabriolet will wrap up their changes in 2020 with new AMG Drive Unit buttons mounted on the steering wheel.

Under the S-Class’ long hood, we expect its powertrain options to remain the same. If this is the case, look for the base S450 to boast a 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine that cranks out 362 horsepower and gets the S450 to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds. In the S560 models will live a twin-turbo 4.0-liter engine that will crank out 463 horsepower and rocket the S-Class to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds.

2019 Mercedes-Benz S-Class

Rounding out the lineup will be the AMG models. We expect the S63 AMG with its 603-hp twin-turbo V8 to return, but it remains unclear if the S65 AMG and its 6.0-liter V12 engine that cranks out 621 hp will make another run in 2020. All three powertrain options are expected to retain the nine-speed automatic transmission.

Though the S-Class hasn’t been through NHTSA or IIHS safety tests, it has plenty of advanced safety features, including standard automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot monitors. Buyers can also add a 360-degree camera, night vision, and more.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no concrete information on the 2020 S-Class’ release date, so stay tuned for updates. With only mild updates, we expect the 2020 S-Class’ MSRP range to remain near the current model, which runs $92,245 to $254,545 (destination fees included).

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class will compete with the Audi A8, BMW 8-Series, and Porsche Panamera.
