Review Summary:

The S-Class has been the brand’s flagship model for half a century. Every ounce of effort has gone into making sure this luxury saloon is always leader of the pack.

Sky high price for the top of the line variant

Looks

Everything about the S-Class typifies Mercedes. It’s sleek, smart, and fluid. Everything points forward with subtle edges. It’s another understated design from Germany, but its name says everything you need to know.

Feel

Walnut, leather, suede… it’s all in there. The moment you sit in the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class you know that you’re in good company. Mercedes have kept with the traditional S-Class maxim of luxury, and as you would expect, all feels well inside.

Engineering

There are many features within the S-Class that are aimed at making its rear passengers feel as comfortable as possible. Shaded blinds are fitted to the rear windows, and a full glass sliding roof substitutes any lost light as a result of the desire for privacy. Then of course there are goods such as a DVD player, TV tuners, full multimedia interface… It would be quicker to name what’s not included!

What’s on offer?

Six versions of the S-Class exist, with the entry model, the S-350, coming in at AED 370,000. This will produce 306hp as well as 370Nm of torque. At the other end of the list we find the S 65 AMG, which will leave a hole in your wallet the size of AED 974,000. Perhaps I’ll stop there…

Summing it

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class sits up there with the Rolls Royce Phantom and Range Rover as a high-flying luxury leviathan. Naturally this car is expensive for a reason, but when you see a price tag of nearly AED 1 million you have to ask yourself what on Earth is it made of? Is it a brilliant car? Absolutely.
