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.
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.
New for 2009 is the addition of paddle shifters to the S-Class' steering wheel, while the S550 receives heated and ventilated front seats, a power trunk lid, wood and leather steering wheel and new 18-inch wheels. The optional Distronic Plus system now includes Blind Spot Assist and Park Assist. Among Park Assists many features is the ability to inform the driver if the vehicle will fit into an intended parallel parking space.
Few cars signal success more than the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class sedan. For decades it has been the CEO's luxury liner of choice thanks to its power, grace and technological sophistication that keep rivals like the BMW 7 Series, Audi A8 and Lexus LS playing constant catch-up. All-new just last year, the latest S-Class has again thrown down the gauntlet with class-leading and class-exclusive technology that makes Mercedes' flagship sedan nearly smart enough to drive itself. Of course, this benchmark doesn't come cheap. A base S-Class begins near $100,000, while the lineup's new performance elitist – the V12-powered S65 AMG Sedan – bows at nearly $225,000. These figures shouldn't bruise the S-Class' exclusive buyers. If they do, there's always the seats' hot-stone massage feature.
