Driving Impression

“”

The S-Class is athletic but it isn’t a sports sedan, and it’s too big and heavy to handle like one. The steering lacks driver feedback.

The S550’s twin-turbo 4.7-liter V8 is as strong as most anyone needs, but the S63 AMG and S65 AMG are kings of the universe of luxury power. The S63 AMG coupe and sedan use a fierce twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8, and a firmer tuned suspension that makes the big S-Class come alive in ways uncommon to a car this size. They carve corners with grace and pace. Zero to sixty in 3.9 seconds!

Or maybe the real master of the universe is the S65 AMG, just because it’s a V12 and makes 621 horsepower. But it’s not quite as quick because it’s only rear-wheel drive. And the 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 takes a seven-speed automatic, not the new nine-speed. The S650 Cabriolet gets this powertrain. Clearly a movie star’s car: a Mercedes V12 convertible with 621 horsepower.

There’s another version of the V12 making a tamer 523 horsepower, used in the Maybach S600.

The ride is impeccable, and the brakes get the heavy car stopped true and without drama.

That smooth-as-glass ride is produced Magic Ride Control, using a stereo camera to look at the road and set the suspension for the upcoming surface. In Comfort mode, it feels like magic.

Walk Around

The sedan is graceful but the coupe with its arching roofline is stunning. The lines are crisp, taut and horizontal. The sedan’s grille is and broad and the LED headlamps angular, while the Coupe’s nose is slimmer and lower. The sedan looks more athletic, while the Coupe’s rear end is more tucked.

Interior Overview

“”

The dash is horizontal and has two tiers, glamorous in quilted leather with silver trim. The materials have high contrast, and there is a lot of shiny accents over the basic wood or leather trim, with carbon-fiber accents on the AMG models. The cabin boasts beautiful craftsmanship that’s impressive to the eye. It reeks of splendor. The fit and finish are on a level few cars can equal.

Yet the function is simple, with dual 12.3-inch hi-resolution screens for the driver and passenger that extend across the instrument panel, to control the car’s many operations and infotainment choices. The S-Class uses the latest COMAND connectivity system, called mbrace2. It comes with five years of service and includes Facebook, Pandora, voice-to-text email and text messages, a mobile app, non-streaming apps, web services, roadside connection, and diagnostics data.

The climate control system is wondrously complex.

The front seats are superb, with big cushions and a lot of adjustment, although the ergonomics are occasionally fiddly. The seats are something between plush and supportive.

The sedan’s rear seats are also wide and comfortable, at least the outside seats. The Coupe’s tapering roofline takes up some space, but there’s still good shoulder, elbow and hip room, at least when the middle seat isn’t occupied. The standard rear seat splits and folds and passes through to the trunk, which is roomy enough.

Bucket seats in the rear are available, or also, for the sedan, an Executive Rear Seat Package Plus option that includes reclining seats with footrests, a central console with airplane-like laptop trays, a hot-stone massage function, and heated armrests: the ultimate Lazy Boy. With the rear video option it’s all there.

The Cabriolet’s excellent soft top has three layers, and the Airscarf system blows sweet hot air on your neck.

Summary

Master of the Universe, the ultimate sedan, coupe, or convertible, the big, powerful, luxurious, expensive and built-like-a-tank Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Magic ride, and it actually handles. Supercar acceleration from a big twin-turbo V8 or V12.
