  • Looks like a Korean knock off of a European luxury sedan. Only worse. This is going to be the new depreciation Queen of the road. Just another fake luxury car, crammed full of tech gimmicks that will break more quickly than you can drive this thing to the dealership. By the way, your dealership visit will come complete with a complimentary cup of espresso and a tub of vaseline.

  • I'm no car expert, but it feels like you skipped a couple of generations/versions of the S-Class, in particular the 2018-ish model - I was really looking forward to seeing it, especially the way it looks in comparison to the previous and the latest model(s). Slightly disappointed, but will not leave a dislike. All in all, a decent review.

  • A few errors here I dare to say. They were using the letter S decades before the model you indicated. Like the S, S, SSK and SSKL models of the 1920's and in numerous model designations in the '30's.

  • Hmm, fav S-Class. Well, my 2012 S63 was a freight train and a beast, but without 4Matic getting power to the ground was tough and tires did not last long. My current S550, 2017, was a special order and is to me the perfect S, even compared to new version. But my family has had many versions of S-Class since 1969, and my dad’s 1990 560SEL was a bank vault (remember how those old doors made a thunk/click in the same way no matter how hard the door was closed?), classic, not too many goofy electronic features and incredibly easy and fun to drive.
