Mercedes-Benz S Class Saloon (2020 - )

Mercedes-Benz’s S-Class is the benchmark luxury saloon, but the all-new 2020 model takes technology and interiors to a new level entirely and stretches the lead between the S-Class and its rivals, BMW 7 Series and the Audi A8. Available in five trim levels, with four-wheel drive and diesel and petrol engines among the options.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

The entry-level S350d diesel version in AMG Line trim is the most fuel efficient, tax-effective and cheapest S-Class to buy and run. However, even at the top of the range, the S500 4Matic petrol, four-wheel drive version uses ’mild hybrid’ electric boost to add top-end power but keep fuel economy vaguely under control. That said, this is still a big, heavy, fast, luxurious executive saloon and running costs - from tax to servicing to insurance - will be commensurate with the indulgence. You’ll face similar bills from the BMW and Audi.
