Mercedes-Benz S-Class Summary

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is the brand's top-end luxury sedan. With starting prices well into six figures, this super-elite model offers pretty much everything you can think of. Built for performance and comfort, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class has powerful engine options (V6, V8 or V12), high-tech features, and advanced safety technology. Available as a sedan, coupe and cabriolet, this model is well-known for its ultra-plush seating and spacious backseats. With so many features available to rear passengers (especially in the Maybach trim), it feels more like a limousine than a full-sized sedan.
