   The Mercedes-Benz S-class is produced since 2005.

   Most of the engines for the new Mercedes S-class are newly developed and deliver more power comparing with the previous car. All of them without exception provide strong performance and the S600 boasts supercar's acceleration.

   The S-class comes with an adaptive damping air suspension. It's settings are automatically adjusted accordingly to the road surface. Body movements are well controlled. Steering is very accurate and gives plenty of feedback.

   There is little to disturb peace inside the cabin even at motorway speed. Engine sound is perfectly isolated, as well as other wind and road noises.

   To buy an to run the S-class Mercedes you must have a deep pocket. It is much more expensive than it's rivals and has a high fuel consumption. However it's resale value is one of the best in this class. The Mercedes is also a very reliable car so you can expect it to run for ages.

   A new model received a completely redesigned interior. All materials have also been upgraded. Panels are precisely fitted and finished. All the most commonly used functions can be accessed through a single rotary dial which is similar to the BMW iDrive system.

   There is plenty of room for the driver and the front seats are finely adjustable.

   The new Mercedes-Benz S-class is larger than the previous model. Boot space has also been increased despite it was large enough already.

   The S-class has all the active and passive safety features you would expect. Plenty of all-round airbags, anti-lock brakes, traction control and other driving aids are standard across the range. In fact it is one of the safest cars on the roads and is only matched by Jaguar XJ. Unfortunately list of standard security equipment is short.

   Mercedes has fitted all the cutting-edge technology available in the S-class. All the equipment that you can think of is standard, and options include a hi-tech aids such as radar-operated cruise control and infrared headlights for better night-time visibility.

   Production of the Mercedes S-class still continues.

   Disadvantages: More expensive than it's rivals and has a high fuel consumption.

   Verdict: It is the best selling executive car, and customers can't be wrong.
