Mercedes-Benz S-Class Saloon S350 Bluetec L AMG Line 4dr Review

For This model feels effortlessly fast and flexible, plus it’s one of the most refined diesels we’ve ever driven. AMG Line versions get sportier looks, and the longer wheelbase means there’s masses of room in the rear seats.

Against Some of the most desirable equipment costs extra, and the fantastic Magic Body Control system isn’t available on this model.

The Mercedes-Benz S350 Bluetec L AMG Line is a fantastic luxury car, but we’d be tempted to stick with the SE Line model.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

The S350 Bluetec is our pick of the range, because it mixes strong performance and superb refinement with comparatively low tax costs and impressive fuel economy.

If you’re going to drive the car yourself, go for the standard-length model; if you’re going to employ a chauffeur to drive for you, we’d recommend spending the extra on the long-wheelbase L version. The optional Chauffeur Pack is also worth considering on L models. This allows the front passenger’s seat to be moved right out of the way, so the person behind can recline their seat (electrically, of course) and bring out a footrest.

I got my new S Class on October 9th. Four days after it broke down and more than a month later Mercedes Benz still has been unable to fix it. Repair…
