If there's a top to the luxury-sedan ladder, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class has long laid claim to it—especially if you value technology, engineering, and some of the most advanced active safety and occupant protection in the world, perhaps over lavish, hand-crafted displays of wealth and 'bespoke' exclusivity.
The S-Class remains one of the best flagship luxury sedans in the world, alongside the likes of the Audi A8, BMW 7-Series, Jaguar XJ, and yes, even the Tesla Model S. This past model year marked the introduction of a completely new, sixth-generation S-Class, and in keeping with tradition, the S-Class was first launched in just one guise: the S550, with a twin-turbo V-8. Since then, a high-performance S63 AMG 4Matic model; and now for 2015, the lineup gets wider yet with the introduction of flagship S600 and S65 AMG models.
With an all-new look for the 2014 model year, and carried into this year, the Mercedes-Benz S Class has re-interpreted its legendary status among luxury sedans, coupes, and limousines. No matter the body type, however, the new S Class exudes an athleticism that enhances its large form and powerful lines.
In S Class Coupe form, the athleticism is strongest: the powerful nose shared with the Sedan (though in a slimmer, lower guise) meets an abbreviated side line, a sharply swept cabin, and a taut, tucked rear end. The result is a wide, low-slung look that belies the car's interior space.
Even the “base” 2015 Mercedes-Benz S550 Sedan comes standard with a twin-turbocharged 4.7-liter V-8 engine rated at 449 horsepower, resulting in 4.8-second 0-60 mph acceleration. Yet with the pace comes an impressive isolation and quietness.
With its 7-speed automatic, the S550 won’t come off as a sport sedan, but it will never leave you wanting for punch, either. The same goes for the base S550 Coupe—it’s very potent, if still large and not particularly nimble.
With the sedan, there’s also the option of an S600 model, sporting a 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-12 engine rated at 523 horsepower. Although the V-12 is more potent, it’s also heavier, making this the boulevard cruiser’s option—its conservative rumble and V12 badging are both symbols of status.
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz S Class interior is spacious, beautiful, well-made, and visually impressive. It would take a jaded heart to find fault in it, whatever the aesthetic preference.
Superb front seats offer just the right blend of suppleness and support, with wide, long cushions and ample adjustability. The rear seats of the sedan are equally spacious and comfortable; in the coupe, the low roof takes a bit of space, but the materials are still just as opulent and the surfaces just as plush. Shoulder, elbow, and hip room are ample across the board.
The Sedan offers a basic bench seat rear, bucket seats, or a First Class Rear Suite option that adds reclining rear seats with fold-out footrests, a central console with laptop trays, hot-stone massage function, and heated armrests. The right-front passenger seat’s headrest can even be removed, then the seat back reclined until it forms a nap-ready, chaise-style lounge for the right-rear occupant.
