What Car? says...

Since 1972, when the badge first adorned the back of its flagship luxury saloon, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class has been the default limousine of choice. And not just in terms of space and luxury, but also for cutting-edge technology that pushes the driving experience, convenience and efficiency to new levels.

As you’ll discover when you read our review, the S-Class includes systems that can read bumps in the road then adjust its suspension accordingly, and semi-autonomous technology that uses sat-nav data to slow down and steer you smoothly around bends. It’s astonishingly clever stuff.

In 2017 the S-Class had a makeover that included a new range of more efficient petrol and diesel engines, plus ever more powerful V8 and V12 AMG models.

Having said all that, it’s not got the monopoly on luxury transportation. You can choose from a selection of rivals that includes the BMW 7 Series, Audi A8 and even the Range Rover. The question is, should you? Read on to find out.
