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.
New for 2010 is the S400 HYBRID model. Aesthetically, the S-Class receives a mild facelift and a few interior enhancements, including an innovative split screen interface shared by the driver and front passenger. New Torque Vectoring Brake and crosswind stabilization further improve the sedan's surefootedness.
No car better defines the word "flagship" than the 2010 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Sedan. This large luxury cruiser sets the benchmark in creature comforts, cutting-edge technology, and robust performance for the upper strata of the automotive world. Headlined by the mainstream S550 model, the S-Class lineup also comprises the uplevel S600, as well as a pair of obscenely-powered AMG models. But this year, there's also a green addition to the vehicle line. By delivering combined fuel economy of 25 miles-per-gallon, Mercedes' first gas-electric hybrid, the S400, gives Benz buyers the opportunity to be both socially-conscious and well-pampered at once. Except for an affordable price, the S-Class now truly does have it all.
