For The 350 CDI diesel provides strong performance yet is refined and reasonably frugal. It's our favourite engine in the range. Long-wheelbase models have palatial space for rear-seat passengers.
Against This long-wheelbase version won't appeal to keen drivers as much as the short-wheelbase one. Even with the diesel engine, the S-Class isn’t exactly cheap to run.
A sensational car with a sensational engine, so this is one of the best S-Class models. You pay a lot for a few more inches of rear legroom, though.
You could certainly argue that, pound for pound, the Mercedes S-Class is the best car in the world. Whatever you want from a luxury car, the big Merc does it - and does it very well.
There is a wide range of engines, our favourite of which is the smooth and powerful diesel V6. Unless you'll be the back-seat passenger or are planning to be a chauffeur, don't bother with the more expensive long-wheelbase model, though.
On top of the three-year unlimited-mileage warranty, Mercedes cars also come with the Mobilo breakdown assistance package that provides you with assistance on the road for up to 30 years in more than 30 European countries. Different benefits apply, depending on what the problem is, and full details are available from the Mercedes Customer Assistance Centre.

My S63 AMG four-door is so fast and the handling is so great that 10 days later I brought another four S320s.
With the cheapest list price, the best fuel economy and lowest running costs, this is by some way the best model in the range - and our reigning Luxury Car of the Year.
