Changes for the 2013 Mercedes-Benz S-Class are minor and include the addition of the Premium 2 package (PARKTRONIC park assist, KEYLESS GO, rearview camera, Active multicontour front seat with massage) to the S350 BlueTEC 4Matic, S00 Hybrid and S550.
Diesel power comes to the 2012 Mercedes-Benz S-Class sedan with the introduction of the new S350 BlueTEC sedan. The S550 receives a new 4.6-liter twin-turbocharged engine producing more power and better fuel economy than last year's 5.5-liter V8.
While it's arguably the most technologically advanced sedan on the planet, the all-new ninth-generation Mercedes-Benz S-Class remains the embodiment of traditional luxury. In a vehicle that boasts sophisticated innovations like stop-and-go cruise control and infrared night vision, the passenger cabin is dominated not by buttons, knobs and switches, but by wood, leather and a palpable air of richness.
