It’s the review you’ve all been waiting for... the all-new Mercedes S-Class!
It’s the car Mat’s been waiting for oh-so-long to test drive, but will it be worth the wait? Well in this in-depth review, he’ll be taking you over every inch of this new luxury limousine to see whether it has what it takes to compete with its predecessors.
When it comes to performance, we already know it’s packing a number of petrol, diesel and hybrid options. For our UK viewers, our petrol options are currently topped off by the S500, which is a 3-litre straight-six turbo that can produce 435hp. But if you’re after more power, you’ll want to choose the hybrid S580e, where the 3-litre straight-six is joined by an electric motor to produce 510hp! But if we're being honest, we’re all waiting for the upcoming AMG S63, which will have a twin-turbo V8 and be able to put down over 600hp!
So performance is all well and good, but let’s face it, you’re all probably more excited by the interior! But will it live up to its high expectations? And more importantly, just how good is the infotainment system on that HUGE centre console screen? Well, there’s only one way to find out… Stay right here for Mat’s all-new in-depth review!

Its basically a Maybach. Wich I really love
Astro501 Day ago
@Sebastian Nolte yeah but if you look back at the s class before the interior was not compared to the maybach one. infact it dident even have the similar seats, and the ability to have a foot rest. at the end of the day both cars are pretty the same but obviously the price of the new s class in comparison to the maybach´s (not the SUV) are different.
Sebastian Nolte
It is the normal version, not the Maybach Version.

I think this 7th generation is the best looking. The others just look old now. All this tech is nice now when it is new but give it a few years when it starts going on the fritz. And just why did they give you a left-hand drive car in Britain?

Perfect showcase of greed and capitalism - a car is now an adult toy using tons of resources for no use. Use your bike or travel by bus or train instead to save the planet!

I can't understand Why these big touch screens and the philosophy of no knobs are allowed, they totally distract from the traffic. If you use any electronic device as a driver in Germany eg mobile phone you get fined.
