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.
For 2013, the Mercedes-Benz S Class sedan continues to redefine the meaning of motorized transportation, elevating the automobile to the type of status symbol more commonly reserved for vintage works of art or designer labels. As one would expect of a luxury leader, the S-Class is offered in a variety of flavors, beginning with the entry-level S550. From there, the choices include the V12-powered S600, the clean-diesel S350 BlueTEC and the environmentally conscious S400 Hybrid. Leaving environmental concerns aside, the S-Class offers two very potent AMG models: the S63 and S65. No matter which S-Class you choose, you'll be getting a car that is the epitome of performance, comfort, safety and technology. And, with a starting price of over $90,000, why would you expect anything less.
