This Year's Model Updates:

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class adds a plethora of variants for 2015. The V12-powered S600 and range-topping S65 AMG join the range, and the S550 Plug-In Hybrid will arrive in early 2015. Most notably, however, the former CL-Class has been renamed and rejoined its four-door sibling as the all-new S-Class coupe. Also new for 2015 is a revised COMAND electronics controller throughout the lineup, the option of a head-up display and available carbon-ceramic brakes for AMG models. The previously optional cabin air filtration and fragrance system is now standard.

Pros:
  • Unparalleled blend of luxury and technology
  • Endless safety and entertainment features
  • Incredible ride comfort
  • Opulent cabin.
  • Effortless acceleration
Cons:
  • Sheer volume of tech features can overwhelm
  • Competitors are more engaging to drive.

  • Second S Class - 4th MBZ - 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class
    By -

    I think that MBZ put too many bells and whistles on this car. I am paranoid about having any kind of a fender bender as the electronics will surely be messed up. I had to have new breaks and rotors put on at less than 19,000 miles. The climate control makes a weird noise sometimes (noise comes from engine) and per the dealership it is normal. Car is built to be quiet and then there is a weird alien sound. Voice control has improved but still not perfect. Sadly Siri works better in responding to text messages, etc. Massage on the seats is silly, along with the embracing seats. I have never used the "perfume" dispenser.

  • Worst Car I have ever owned - 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class
    By -

    Purchase the car in August 2014 with "all the bells and Whistles Barely drove it, was in the shop every 100 miles. Problems with computer, direct injection. Too many distractions, hard to work heat/ac. The cameras are distracting on the dash. Mercedes is buying the car back because it constantly breaks down and leaves me on the road. 2K miles on the car in 6 months and I drove mostly a loaner car. Not even sure I have a lux car, Ive been driving a loaner. Car was in the shop for a month, got it back and it broke down the next day, Mercedes hasn't even offered a loaner this time. Totally unreliable. If you look on this site you see dozens of them turned in with less than 5K miles.

    This is the best car that I have ever owned. Beautiful exterior and interior. The car can drive itself, but I much prefer to have fun driving it myself. The handling ism outstanding. Talk about the quiet inside. The only complaint that I have is the voice recognition. I have to repeat myself several times, but it may be me. Recently stopped by state trooper (not speeding) but for not displaying front license plate. I could not ruin the front grill with the plate. The car is a "head turner" and I get a lot of "thumbs-up" on the road.

    After owning this car I cannot imagine owning anything better. My next choice would be the hybrid version (feeling a bit guilty at the pump).

  • Perfect (so far) S550 4matic - 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class
    By -

    I have had the car for 3 months, 2500 miles and have absolutely no problems or issues. I went from a 2008 S550 to this 2015 S550 and the new one is a league of its own. Two days after purchase I went on a 300 mile trip on I10 here in Arizona. This gave me time to try and use all the options and gave me a very good comfort level with them. Some of my answers are based on my 2008 but again this car seems bullet proof.

  • Comfort and luxury - 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class
    By -

    By far this is the most comfortable Mercedes I have owned. Beautiful interior that no cars can match. Much more leg room in the rear than the GL550.

  • Excellent Through 1,000 Miles - 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class
    By -

    Prior vehicle was a 2014 E250. It had 40K miles with no issues. Reason for the S class was I wanted it and didn't want to wait for the diesel. The S is the finest vehicle I have driven. The ride stands out, it is smooth and does not float, handling is outstanding for a large vehicle. The seats are second to none, multiple adjustments and massage minimize driver fatigue. Interior design works very well ergonomically while looking great. With voice command and nearly every function within easy reach on the COMAND system driver can focus on driving while managing other features. The S550 provides more than enough power; haven't detected the turbo lag I experienced in the E Class
