Aluminium has been used extensively in the construction of the S-Class, making it both lighter and more rigid than its predecessor. Coupled with the aerodynamic styling, this offers significant advantages in terms of handling and efficiency.

A choice of a wide range of engines includes the S 350 d, a V6 diesel that returns up to 50.4 mpg* combined and is capable of 0–62 mph in 6.8 seconds.

If petrol is your preference, there’s the S 500 L, a formidable petrol V8 that can generate 700 Nm of torque and reach 62 mph from a standing start in only 4.8 seconds.

Alternatively, the S 500 e L combines an electric drive with an externally chargeable high-voltage  battery and the powerful turbocharged engine to create a highly-efficient drive concept.

The S-Class is synonymous with cutting-edge technologies, and this latest generation has them in abundance. The innovative combination of COMAND Online system  and instrument cluster with high-definition TFT display brings new clarity into the cockpit.

Dig deeper though and there are plenty more to be discovered, including the remarkable MAGIC BODY CONTROL. Available as standard on the S 600 AMG Line L, this innovative system uses cameras to read the road ahead for bumps or potholes, then adjusts damping accordingly. The process takes mere fractions of a second and all you’ll notice is the remarkably smooth, luxurious ride.

Successive generations of S-Class Saloon have raised the bar for automotive design and engineering but this latest incarnation exceeds all expectations. Combining class-leading levels of luxury and safety with exceptional performance, it is a car created entirely without compromise.

This unwavering commitment to excellence is reflected in the sumptuous, beautifully appointed interior. Using only the finest materials, we’ve created a haven of peace and relaxation: quiet, spacious, and equipped with a wealth of technology to enhance your driving experience. From reclining rear seats** to MAGIC BODY CONTROL*** suspension, the S-Class Saloon delivers the smoothest ride imaginable.

Naturally, exterior styling is elegant and refined: it is an S-Class, after all. Yet it appears more dynamic too, particularly the AMG Line with its muscular AMG bodystyling. As for performance, a choice of engines includes a petrol V12 that can power from 0–62 mph in only 4.6 seconds, a V6 diesel managing up to 50.4 mpg* combined, or even the S 500 e, capable of up to 100.9 mpg* combined.
