Mercedes S-Class

The Mercedes Benz S Class, the flagship luxury sedan from the German auto giant, unveiled the S350 Bluetec series of S Class for the 2011 shopping year, as well as the S400 Hybrid. In addition, the Merceds Benz S Class has also unveiled the S63 AMG and S65 AMG, two high-performance models, as well as a few other hybrid or all-wheel drive models. The new S Class runs on turbocharged diesel, the first diesel engine unveiled by Mercedes in the U.S. in the past 16 years. 

This luxury machine is likely to provide powerful horsepower and torque, with unique interior design as befitting the car’s status and reputation. Because the S Class is more of a grouping of Mercedes cars than a single car in and of itself, it’s important to do your research to determine the S Class model that best fits your needs.

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has been in production since 1954 and over the last 56 years has always represented the forefront of luxury refinement in a sedan. 2011 is not going to represent a break with tradition at all and the S-Class will probably feature.
