2009 Mercedes S550
Not to many people have seen the interior of a 100K Mercedes-Benz. This

2011 Mercedes-Benz CL550 4Matic Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2011 Mercedes CL550. I
take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car
while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling
cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it,
start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.
Mercedes S-Class driven through the rain, Part 1
Driving around the countryside in a Mercedes S350 BlueTec in shitty, rainy
weather, occasionally getting sporty. When the red light is on in the
dashboard, it means the Airmatic is set to sport mode. Otherwise it's
comfort mode. Sport mode makes the car go better through corners thanks to
the "active body control" (ABC).
2012 Mercedes-Benz S550 Test Drive & Luxury Car Video Review
is known for luxury but make no mistake about it; the S550 is all about
performance. The full sized luxury sedan car market has some really great
cars including the Audi A8-L, the Lexus LS460-L, and the BMW 750iL. But the
2012 Mercedes S550 is at the top of the list. This vehicle combines a
powerful yet fuel efficient power plant, comfortable ride, and high end
technology into one beautiful package. The base price for the 2012
Mercedes-Benz S550 is $94,500.
The hugely powerful engine that lives in the S550 is a twin-turbo 4.6 liter V-8. This bad boy pumps out 429 horsepower and 516
lb-ft. of torque. All that power is transmitted to the wheels through a
7-speed automatic transmission. You can get the S550 in either rear-wheel
or all-wheel drive. 0-60 MPH is eclipsed in only 4.9 seconds. This is true
sports car performance out of a large high-end luxury sedan. Fuel economy
is surprisingly good at 15 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the highway.
To provide a luxurious ride you would expect from a high-end luxury car,
the 2012 Mercedes-Benz S550 has a few tricks up its sleeve. First the
AIRMATIC active suspension is computer controlled and will adjust to the
road conditions. There are 2 setting: Comfort and Sport. When you choose
sports the car automatically lowers a bit to improve aerodynamics and the
suspension tightens up. In Comfort mode the S550 provides a balanced
enjoyable ride. In addition to AIRMATIC the 2012 Mercedes S550 has an
Active Dampening System that will tailor the dampening force of the strut
every time there is any wheel travel.
On the inside of the 2012 Mercedes-Benz S550 the driver and passenger are
bathed in premium luxury. The seats are wrapped in supple leather. Up front
the seats are both heated and ventilated for your pleasure. There is also
an option to upgrade to message seats which are so very comfortable. Heck
even the rear seats can come as 8-way power adjustable units. The
Harman/Kardon LOGIC7 sound system is comprised of 15 speakers throughout
the interior. This stereo has over 600 watts of music producing power. The
S550 comes packed with every bit of technological goodie you need
including: Bluetooth, Hard Drive Navigation, Satellite Radio, Rear Seat
Entertainment, and more.
There are many more optional features and packages you can add to the 2012
Mercedes S550. This may be the top of the heap for the long-wheel base
luxury sedan segment.

The 2010 Mercedes-Benz S-Class ranks 2 out of 7 Super Luxury Cars. This
ranking is based on our analysis of 90 published reviews and test drives of
the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, and our analysis of reliability and safety data.
The flagship sedan of the world's oldest automaker, the exemplary 2010
Mercedes-Benz S-Class shows off everything that Mercedes engineers can do.
It offers a level of luxury even some similarly-priced cars can't match,
and safety systems no other automaker builds. Much of the same can be said,
however, of its less-expensive E-Class sibling.
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is the most luxurious and exclusive sedan built
by the legendary engineers at Mercedes-Benz. It is a well-balanced luxury
cruiser, offering refined road manners, sumptuous luxury and high-end
technology packaged within an old-world ambiance that many rivals can't
approach. Available with a powerful V8 or an astonishing twin-turbo V12, it is as fast as many sports cars. With
exceptional Napa leather upholstery and a revised technology package
including an updated navigation system that stores Zagat reviews of
thousands of restaurants and hotels, it coddles its occupants like few cars
ever have. Its unique, optional Drive Dynamic seats, which actually change
shape to cradle passengers in response to the car's movements, are
something no rival can match.
For 2010, the S-Class also debuts some extraordinary new safety systems,
such as Mercedes' new, heavily-advertised Attention Assist driver
drowsiness monitor, which attempts to detect and alert a tiring driver.
Reviewers continue to be frustrated with the car's complex COMAND system,
which makes adjusting everything from the radio station to the firmness of
the seats a complicated process involving a series of menus on the
navigation screen. A few also say that a new steering system, found only on
the S550, is disappointing, feeling overBoosted.
Other Cars to Consider
The Super Luxury Car class has seen several significant new entries in
recent years, and the S-Class is no longer an obvious favorite. Buyers
interested in an opulent interior can save thousands, while retaining a
similar level of comfort, in the Lexus LS. Buyers looking for raw
performance can out-corner the S-Class in BMW's redesigned 7-Series -- or,
for a similar price, can buy what many consider the world's fastest
four-door sedan, the all-new Porsche Panamera.
S-Class buyers might also pause to notice that, one step down on the price
ladder, the all-new Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan carries much of the same
appeal, and all of the same safety systems, for a lower cost.
Those who have always seen a Mercedes-Benz S-Class as the epitome of luxury
motoring won't be disappointed with the 2010 edition. This is still a
superb car in every way. But those who aren't attached to the idea of a
Mercedes might want to consider a few competitors before settling on this
Mercedes-Benz S-Class: The Details
A new, hybrid edition of the S-Class is available for 2010. The S400 hybrid
differs from conventionally-powered S-Class sedans in many ways. We review
it separately. A pair of high-performance AMG models, the S63 and S65, also
get separate reviews.
For 2010, Mercedes has made subtle exterior changes to the lights and side
mirrors of the S-Class, added considerable new safety equipment and
slightly altered the mix of options available on each trim level.
"The S-class in any incarnation is still one of the finest cars in the
world. It's ultra-luxurious, ultra-refined, and ultra-comfortable, and it
doesn't shy away from being hustled. The refreshed 2010 S-class is-as the S
always has been-satisfying in a way other cars simply aren't." -- Car and
"One of the finest luxury sedans one can buy short of much more expensive
options from Bentley, Maybach or Rolls-Royce. The 2009 Mercedes-Benz
S-Class will no doubt satisfy just about any ultra-luxury-sedan buyer. But
it's still worth taking a look at other options. Specifically, the all-new
2009 BMW 750i should be a more athletic-handling alternative to the S550,
and the often-overlooked Audi A8." -- Edmunds
"S-Class defines luxury motoring. Encompassing serenity and inspiring road
manners are among its hallmarks. Unfortunately, cars of this caliber also
force the driver to interact with diversionary hi-tech features, many of
which require far too many steps to adjust. In that regard, the S-Class
runs with the pack. Our picks here are the S550 versions. They deliver such
high levels of performance and luxury that it is difficult to justify
paying so much more for other S-Class models." -- Consumer Guide
