The Mercedes-Benz S-Class defines the super luxury sedan segment. There aren’t many rivals in the very high-end luxury classes. Most of them are German, but the S-Class sets the standard by which others are judged.
For the 2018 model year, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class sees a light refresh and the addition of a new entry-level S450 model.
The 2018 S-Class didn’t need any changes to remain the benchmark for the automotive upper crust. This year’s changes serve to solidify the car’s top position. There are a few chinks in this super luxury car’s armor, but they are few and far between.
Until you have driven the S-Class, it’s difficult to convey the kind of uber-luxury and sumptuous ride quality this sedan has. These qualities are accompanied by an unusually astute carriage and excellent drivetrain.
