    All Years The doors self close. Not so in this S-Class, as the A-Class had the honor of the first model to implement the then new Mercedes-Benz design theme. Furthermore, at highway speeds the suspension computer automatically engages sport mode Airmatic - Sport mode 1 or 2 depending on the current speed , thus aiding safety by significantly reducing body roll in sharp turns.

    The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has a long history that starts with the first generation debuting in This generation, dubbed the W Mercedes-Benz used specific chassis names such as this to denote its models , was the first to be officially called the S-Class. As the flagship, the S-Class was loaded with innovative technologies. Two more generations followed with the same focus on innovative technologies while gaining size and fame. As a performance division, AMG got its start as an independent tuning firm for Mercedes-Benz vehicles.

    Then in the s, Mercedes-Benz took a controlling stake in AMG, and then in , ultimately purchased the performance division as its own. AMG variants feature cosmetic and performance upgrades over the lesser models. Historically, S-Classes have always been the first of any Mercedes-Benz model to incorporate its latest design theme.

    Not so in this S-Class, as the A-Class had the honor of the first model to implement the then new Mercedes-Benz design theme. Up front, it is unmistakeably a Mercedes-Benz as evidenced by the prominent emblem and the grille. Stylish headlights and a bumper design with mesh inserts give it a refined appearance.

    The side profile features a raked windshield and a flowing and smooth roofline. There is a subtle character line that starts from the door mirror and ends at the trunk.

    The rear is elegant and the exhausts are well done. The taillights are distinctive, and blends seamlessly with the design.

    Overall, it is a stylish sedan inside and out. As far as handling goes, the S55 AMG is very capable. Press a button to lower the car, and it enables you to feel closer to the ground. What it does is stiffen up the suspension, and the difference is apparent. This is a big car, but the S55 hides its bulk well, with eager responses.

    The only thing that detracts from the driving experience is the steering. While well weighted, the steering feels distant with no feedback through the wheel. It feels a tad aloof. As for the ride, the S55 excels in this regard. It is supreme, with the suspension working hard to shield the occupants from any road imperfections.

    You literally cannot feel a thing, and dare I say, it is like riding on a cloud. While the S and S make do with a horsepower 4. At horsepower this car has an upgraded engine chip so it has more horsepower than But the V8 feels strong regardless of engine speed.
