2019 Mercedes-Benz S-Class

2019 S-Class Photos
As much as almost any other vehicle on the market, Mercedes-Benz's full-size S-Class flagship represents the pinnacle of luxury. Spectacular even in standard form, the 2019 S-Class comes in three body styles, in addition to the ultra-luxury Maybach spin-off.

A new Exclusive Edition for the coupe and convertible has been added for the 2019 model year. AMG versions can have a new wood/leather performance steering wheel, or one made of carbon fiber. Maybach sedans can now have two-tone paint (for a mere $12,000 extra). Mercedes-Benz also has been developing an S 560e plug-in hybrid sedan, to be added during 2019.

Rather than trim levels, the S-Class is organized according to powertrain: V-6, V-8, or V-12. The base S 450 contains a marvelous twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 that whips up 362 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. With its smooth-shifting 9-speed automatic transmission, the S 450 can reach 60 mph in 5 seconds or less, according to Mercedes-Benz.

Stepping up to V-8 power, the AMG S 63 gets a twin-turbo engine that blasts out (in an appropriately genteel manner, of course) a mind-altering 603 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. Hitting that 60-mph mark takes a startling 3.4 seconds ? among of the swiftest sedans on the market.

Output from the 6.0-liter V-12 in the AMG S 65 rises to 621 horsepower and 738 pound-feet, but it's slower in acceleration than the V-8.

The S-Class hasn't been crash-tested. As expected from an automobile in this league, plenty of safety features are standard. They include automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitors, and adaptive cruise control. Safety options include night vision and a surround-view camera system.

An optional Driver Assistance package combines cameras and sensors with satellite-derived data to make certain driving actions semi-autonomous. Tapping the turn-signal lever, for instance, can permit the vehicle to change lanes after scanning for nearby vehicles. The system also helps it steer away from oncoming vehicles or obstacles, and issues an alert if the driver exceeds the speed limit. .
