2010 Mercedes-Benz S-Class
There are 12 user reviews for the S550 trim shown below
- True Mercedes Benz, luxurious, powerful, packed with technology, and vault-like.
- Mind numbing amount of technology I'll never use.
Purchased As New
The S Class is still the car to get in the ultra-luxury segment. It is easily the best long distance cruiser in the world right now for four adults. My dad just got one (previously owned a 2002 S55 AMG) and the car is just incredible. There is no need for the S63 AMG, unless you want to show off. The S550 has more than enough grunt and is every bit as luxurious as the other models without being showy. The seats that hug you are a particularly nice touch. I love the panoramic sunroof, the rear seat controls, the tv's in the back, and all the other electronic gadgets. Some are pointless, I don't like the nightvision. It seems distracting and a waste of money. The Driver's Assistance Package is OK, but a bit overkill. But besides all the technology, you have to admire the QUALITY of the car. The leather is thick and will last a lifetime, the whole body of the car is rock solid. Everything is soft to the touch, there are no gaps, the wood is just beautiful, the trunk is HUGE, the S Class is the perfect sedan. I can't think of a better sedan out there. Driving the S550 is also quite rewarding, there is NO body roll and it drives like a much smaller nimble car. The torque seems endless. The cabin is silent and buttery smoothe. The only close competitors I can think of is the Audi A8 and the new Jaguar XJ. I haven't riden/driven the XJ yet. But the Audi is also an extremely classy luxurious sporty ultra sedan. But the suspension is not QUITE as smoothe as the Merc. The BMW 7 Series is too harsh, the Lexus LS is too soft. The Mercedes Benz S Class is the best of the best in the automotive world. Green metallic paint on cashmere leather makes a striking combination by the way!
