The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is all-new for 2014--with a completely new look inside and out--although it's only slightly longer and wider than the previous generation. This new sixth generation of the S-Class introduces a number of new technologies, such as improved active-safety systems, and even a Magic Body Control feature that will 'read' the road ahead and smooth out the ride accordingly.
Strong, smooth powertrains; limousine-like interior (especially with Executive package); innovative technology; long-held reputation for durability; a luxury benchmark
With a base price of $93,825--and prices likely to range to near double that for a well-equipped S65 AMG, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class lineup isn't cheap. That's always been beside the point, though; the S-Class continues to showcase the leading edge of automotive technology--including some world firsts for active safety--and in ride comfort and interior ambiance. With Mercedes-Benz' Pre-Safe technologies, you get some of the most sophisticated accident-avoidance systems in the world. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is also the first regular-production car to move entirely to LEDs for lighting--with the entire car now using more than 400 LEDs, including up to 56 for the headlamps.
