What's the used Mercedes S-Class saloon like?
When it was launched, critics hailed the Mercedes S-Class as among the very best executive saloons you could buy, regardless of price. It's a big car with a huge cabin, but it's also sleeker and less daunting than the slab-sided previous model. Inside, it's supremely comfortable and all models have generous equipment levels, which most first owners added to from a long list of options.
The big Merc drives neatly for its size and responds well, feeling much smaller than it really is. The standard seven-speed automatic gearbox is superb and wind noise is shut out effectively thanks to the double-glazed side windows.
