New Mercedes S-Class - see why it's their most luxurious car ever!
On the lookout for your next car? Head to to find the right car from the right dealer, at the right price.
The S-Class has always been a trend-setter when it comes to luxury and high-class tech, so you know it’s always going to be a big deal when a new one is announced. So does the latest generation live up to the stature of its predecessors?
Well when it comes to luxury, it’s definitely leading the way over what BMW & Audi have to offer, with a huge touchscreen infotainment screen dominating the front cabin, surrounded either side by a large, curved dashboard. Although if you’re a fan of physical buttons, you might want to look away now…
As for performance? Well under the bonnet you can choose from four different engines. They’re all 3-litre straight-sixes, but the range topper (for now at least) is the S500 petrol, which delivers 435hp and hits 60mph in 4.9 seconds! There’s also a V8 & AMG S63 heading our way next year, too.
So what do you think - does the S-Class retain its crown as the king of luxury limos? Stick with Mat to find out!

      If they would bring the previous head and rear lights on the new one. It would be almost perfect.

    I think rich people won't buy the new s class if they see from the exterior But when they see the interior They change their mind:)

  • Mohamed

    That’s a longer E class and a much longer C class, with a Tesla front interior.

    Did Mercedes mention that it has a built-in spy system that you cannot disable? It is constantly online via the phone system as it has its own SIM, and this can be remote controlled. Also, if you sell your Mercedes, a year of complaining won't get you off their mailing list - only the threat of going after them under GDPR will..

  • Freddo Flintstono

    I just don't like the main line of Mercedes - they all look like they're mainly used by undertakers..

  • 97336cf

    19 seat motors....LMFAO just imagine when this car is a typical $3000 used junkpile like a 2007 s550 is today. What a nightmare this is going to be in a few years.

    I love the exterior, but that huge middle screen ruins the interior. I would like analog speedometer and buttons. W211 has the best interior ever.


    As someone who's been a huge fan of the S-class (owned them all up to the w221) I can say without hesitation this the most uninspiring and ugly S class of them all.

    S-Class should be conservative, not a sport car style.

  • the_stigs_trinidadian_cuzin

    The rear end doesn't quite do it. Last generation was wayy sweeter

  • TheYoutuber

    Front is ok. Taillights are inelegant. Interior is lazy.

  • james Robinson

    S-class design and features has always filtered down into other models and other manufactures copy and always hold there breath when Mercedes-Benz release a new s-class, because other brands always go back to the drawing board! Ex-Mercedes-Benz employee 😉

    "This system keeps all 4 wheels in the same direction to make the car more stable" i sure hope it's not like other cars do that too.

    • Pekka Hietala

      Steer the wheels in same direction. Not keep. In low speeds it steers rear wheels opposite direction to front wheels.

    Well I guess i wont be able to purchase this until 2030 hopefully. It's a very lovely car.

  • NubletPie278

    God its terrible. The interior looks fit for a £30k Tesla and the exterior is bland and anonymous. Worst S Class ever. At least there's a V8.

  • Axel

    Its such an ugly car. The BMW 5 series is much cheaper but looks much more elegant. This... looks too much like a budget car.

  • Manu

    Ive worked in the S-Class this year, i was one of the Holiday jobbers there before they came out With the new one. And yes, the old one with the Long Display Looks way sexier.


    wow i love this car

    I think that the car looks amazing, but im also a 21 year old that wants a more sporty car. I don't think their target group of customers share the same opinion to be honest.

  • Draj4

    Most luxurious sedan for me looks very fancy!

  • cuttight

    This will only sell in the livery / company car market. Every Uber Black driver will want one. I just can't see anyone with any sense of style and class buying this as a personal vehicle.

  • cuttight

    Looks insubstantial (and not in a good way). It looks like it has been designed by a committee with the Chinese market in mind. But they misjudged it so badly, that even the Chinese don't like it. This has all the elegance, character and charisma of a commercial dishwasher. Don't get me started on the electronic gimmicks that, judging from past form with Mercedes, will be a miracle if they keep working to the end of the warranty period.

  • cuttight

    News flash: The W222 has just gone up in value.

  • Sassy

    Woweeee that back end totally doesn't look like every single other 2020-2021 car released. I think there's something going on with these manufacturers that they're not telling us and it's ugly.

  • Denn Joel Alano

    This is just a design cycle, as with the 80s mercs; Compact w201 being the template of later w124 and w140 models.

    The new front and rear lights are clearly a let down in both the E- and S-Class. They look even more unfitting in the S-Class.

  • TheStrangers

    I don't like too many screens in a car. A car should have a good balance between physical buttons and screens

  • H Chaud

    s class has best interior and engine, last gen looked better

  • Seesaw

    I'm a very loyal mercedes customer, but really not a fan of the direction the design team have taken, the only silver lining is the new wheel is very nice. However I may stick it out with my current C class of the now previous generations design and any upgrade would be purely to get the old design with the MBUX system.

  • Breathingspace

    All this tech-packed interiors of new flagship cars I find depressing. They seem to lack cosiness, rather remind me of dystopian sci-fi films.

    Absolutely awful. No innovation, nothing. For the top of a class car, they’ve only gone and used the A class body. Absolute shambles. I’d take the 1993, 2007, 2014, 2018 model anyway (I left out the 2000 model because it’s awful and skinny, just like this pile of rubbish)
