Mercedes Benz says its engineers have also implemented specific aerodynamic measures to reduce wind noise. An array of exterior enhancements and wheel and tire packages are available depending on the model.

The available Rear Seat Entertainment package even gives those in back full control over the COMAND system. The trunk can accommodate up to 16.2 cubic feet, which is a decent size for this class.

The 2012 Mercedes Benz S Class comes as no surprise and provides the ride and handling expected from top-tier luxury sedan. The compliant suspension absorbs all the humps and bumps on the streets while also keeping body roll in check. The cabin is also bereft of all the noise and commotions that takes place on the outside. It simultaneously gives you that stately luxury-car feel, without making you feel overly isolated from driving.

The new S350 Bluetec is the mighty powerful around town thanks to its diesel engine, with the best fuel economy for any S-Class or any other full-size luxury car.
