2010 Mercedes-Benz S-Class

No car better defines the word flagship than the 2010 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Sedan. This large luxury cruiser sets the benchmark in creature comforts, cutting-edge technology, and robust performance for the upper strata of the automotive world. Headlined by the mainstream S550 model, the S-Class lineup also comprises the uplevel S600, as well as a pair of obscenely-powered AMG models.

But this year, there’s also a green addition to the vehicle line. By delivering combined fuel economy of 25 miles-per-gallon, Mercedes’ first gas-electric hybrid. the S400, gives Benz buyers the opportunity to be both socially-conscious and well-pampered at once. Except for an affordable price, the S-Class now truly does have it all.

If you relish the open road, the 2010 Mercedes-Benz S-Class may not be the driver’s car you’re looking for. Something more along the lines of the sportier BMW 7 Series might be more your style.

New for 2010 is the S400 HYBRID model. Aesthetically, the S-Class receives a mild facelift and a few interior enhancements, including an innovative split screen interface shared by the driver and front passenger. New Torque Vectoring Brake and crosswind stabilization further improve the sedan’s surefootedness.

Driving Impressions The 2010 Mercedes Benz S-Class offers two very distinct on-road experiences. For the driver, it belies its size at higher speeds with an unreasonable level of agility, thanks to a.

highly responsive chassis and Benz’s Active Body Control (ABC). For the passenger, it simply feels like it’s floating above the pavement rather than actually touching it. Power delivery from the 5.5-liter V8 is silky smooth with lots of brawn throughout the rev band, and the seven-speed automatic transmission is the perfect mate for this engine. For even more performance outlandish performance there’s the V12-powered S600, or a choice of two completely over-the-top AMG models.

Going in the other direction, more progressive buyers may opt for the S400. With its seamless mild hybrid powertrain and modest 3.5-liter V6 engine, this green luxury car offers a nice, easy feel with ride and handling similar to the S550.

Under the Hood

The 2010 Mercedes Benz S-Class now offers its broadest range of power, performance, and fuel economy yet. The S550 will still be the most appealing of the model line due to its smooth and strong 5.5-liter V8, yielding 382 horsepower and 391 pound-feet of torque. It’s neither under- nor overpowered.

Conversely, the S600 and the AMG models are a bit overwhelming, while the S400 Hybrid feels somewhat labored during harder acceleration. But the S550, with its seamless 7-speed automatic transmission can get this 4,600-plus pound behemoth from zero to 60 in the high-five second range. For those who prefer an eco-friendlier alternative, they should opt for the S400 HYBRID, but expect a significant compromise to performance.
