There are fewer relaxing experiences than driving an S-Class – the only thing that can top it is if you’re in the back seat, being chauffeured.

In short, the Mercedes S-Class has set the standard for luxury and cutting-edge technology for over 40 years – and the latest sixth-generation car is the best yet. Despite its focus on luxury and refinement, the S-Class is still one of the most engaging executive limousines on the market. Standard air suspension gives a wonderfully cushioned ride.

 

Interior, design and technology

The Mercedes’ interior is even more impressive as it’s beautifully built, supremely comfortable and plushly appointed. The wide dashboard features a pair of 12.3-inch TFT screens – one for the sat-nav, infotainment and energy use, the other for the speedo, rev counter, trip computer and optional night vision display. As you’d expect, quality is the watchword for the S-Class infotainment systems. All models come with the 12.3-inch high definition screen, sat-nav, digital radio and single CD/DVD drive as part of the COMMAND Online system.

Leg room, head room & passenger space

Given the S-Class’s luxury car status, it’s no surprise to find most of the space in the cabin is reserved for rear seat passengers.

Rear head and legroom is generous and there’s also plenty of storage space.

Reliability and Safety

With all the options ticked, the S-Class is surely one of the safest cars in the world.
Mercedes has forged a strong reputation for building durable cars, and this is backed by an impressive 11th place in the Driver Power 2015 satisfaction survey, although the brand has dropped a place since 2014.
