You know you've arrived. If the rest of the world hasn't caught on, they surely will when they see you in a new S-Class. This flagship Mercedes is a rolling testament to monetary success. Aside from prestige, the 2018 S-Class remains a fantastic car both to drive and to be driven in.
You May Not Like This Car If...
If the S-Class' nearly 6-figure cost gives you pause, you might consider the all-new Lexus LS, Genesis G90, Acura RLX or Volvo S90, all of which can be had for far less. The S-Class' archrival BMW 7 Series also begins about $10,000 less. Also all-new is the Audi A8, which promises a higher level of self-driving capability.
What's New for 2018
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class lineup gets a mid-cycle refresh for 2018 that includes a new V6 base model called the S 450, while S 560 models receive a new, more powerful V8. A host of active safety and driver-assistance features also come to the S-Class, bringing Level 2 autonomous-driving capabilities. All models receive interior and exterior updates, and the world-first Energizing Comfort system that aims to bring comfort, vitality and even joy to the driver via climate, fragrance and seat massage.
