Mercedes S-Class Review

The Mercedes S-Class is among the top luxury cars in the market, only unable to match up to elite brands like Maybach and Rolls Royce. The S-Class boasts of a breathtakingly beautiful cabin, quality refinement, and all around sophistication. Both modern and classic elements are combined to make this vehicle among the elite vehicles. The diesel engine stands out with its balance of fuel economy, refinement, and pulling power.

Pros

Watch the S-Class on the road and you’ll be impressed by the car’s employment of large headlamps and wheel arches. Even though the size is lesser than the previous generations, the design works overall during the drive. It also looks just as stunning when parked in front of luxury hotels, thanks to its solid lines and overall dignified look—clearly the aesthetic was meant for this high-end market. What stands out the most in the S-Class is how the doors flow seamlessly into rear wing. The boot is also properly positioned on the rear wings and is distinguished by the lid edges.

The interior maintains the same luxury as the exterior design, easing the driver into complete control of the car. Although the aesthetic is classic for automotive standards, the cabin has aged well over time.

The S600 houses the best engine of the range, a 5.5-litre V12 at 571bhp thanks to its twin turbochargers. Such incredible power enables the vehicle to reach a 62mph sprint from standstill in just 4.6 seconds. Just as powerful is the 5.5-litre V8 at 383bhp, which reaches the 62mph in 5.4 seconds. If you’re not after the punch of these top engines, then you can settle for the 3.5-litre V6 at 272bhp. It’s just as quiet and smooth on the road. The slowest engine is a 3.0-litre V6 that reaches the 62mph in 7.5 seconds, which is more than enough for everyday driving. The pull power is also just as impressive as the others. All these model engines come with a seven-speed automatic gearbox, balancing the speed with a smooth shift between gears.

The S-Class doesn’t disappoint in delivering the most power along motorways. High-speed travel is this vehicle’s top priority, so expect a smooth ride that releases little noise. Even when you go beyond the speed limit, the S-Class manages to feel right on the road. Grip is also maintained even on the more demanding road conditions and body roll kept at a minimum when turning into corners.

Cons

Handling has one downside on the more difficult roads: steering becomes too light and lacks feel under the hands. Thankfully the car’s large weight balances this lack.

Despite the S-Class’ assurance of high-class taste, the interior has several flaws. The display screen on the hood is heavy-handed. The centre console switches also seem off in their slim row position. But this area delivers where it matters: the rotary controller fits well into the hand and the roller-switches around it practically positioned.

The seats are plush and comfortable enough for its elite market. Unfortunately the rear legroom doesn’t share as much space as the other areas. Nonetheless these are minor details to the overall driving experience.

History of Mercedes Benz S-Class

                The German automobile manufacturer created the Mercedes Benz S-Class as a new addition to its superior line of cars. This was first produced in the year 1954 and has become the flagship model of Mercedes Benz since it began its production. It is created as a four door sedan and is a full size car that has come to be known as the best selling luxury sedan in the whole world.

                S-Class is the shorter name given for “special class”, and it is assembled in several countries including Germany, Egypt, Mexico, Thailand, India, Indonesia, and Iran. The S-Class is also a term given for the brand’s six cylinder powered vehicles. Among its predecessors include Ponton in 1954, Fintail in 1959, and the W108 in 1965.  

                The W116 is the first version that was officially called the S-Class, and it was produced in the year 1972 until 1980. This was available as a three speed automatic, a four speed automatic, and a five speed manual. In December 1979, the W126 was released and remained in the market until April 2002. The W126 was available as a four speed automatic and a five speed manual, and it has an FR layout. In April 1991, the W140 replaced the W126 and remained until August 1998. The W220 was introduced in August 1998 until July 2005 and is available as a five speed automatic and seven speed automatic.

                The latest model of the Mercedes Benz S-Class is the W221 which was first produced in 2005 and is a seven speed automatic. It is also noteworthy that the S-Class was used to created the first driverless cars in the world, and it features active and passive safety, pre-safe (the safety feature of Mercedes Benz), and the S-Guard.
