Review Summary:

The 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 the leader of the pack. Have it a sedan or as a coupe, you won't be disappointed.

Pros

* Endless feature list.
* External appearance is sure to turn heads.
* Interior fit and finish is second to none.

Cons

* You'd have to have gold plated pockets to be able to afford 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 2015 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?

Five versions of the S-Class exist, with the entry model, the S400, coming in at AED 410,000. This will produce 333 horsepower as well as 480Nm 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 997,000. Perhaps I’ll stop there…

Summing it

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class sits up there with the other high-flying luxury leviathans. 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!
