About Mercedes-Benz S-Class

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is the flagship of the German luxury brand, and arguably the benchmark full-size sedan to which others aspire. For decades the S-Class has served as the transportation of choice for the world's wealthy, with each generation building on its reputation of impeccable quality, hushed manners and ample power. Prestige comes standard. Known mostly as a sedan, the S-Class is even more over the top in 2-door form as a massive coupe or cabriolet. Mercedes-AMG variants (reviewed separately) bring substantial performance, while those seeking extravagance on another level will get it in spades in the ultra-luxurious Maybach variants. A new V6-powered base model arrives for 2018 with a lower price, but at nearly $91,000, it's anything but cheap.
