Benefits of Driving a 2012 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Sedan

The S-Class has set the standard for luxury and performance in a sedan. Now, Mercedes-Benz is setting its sights on making its flagship vehicle a standard in fuel economy and reduced emissions as well by adding the diesel engine this year to the hybrid system it introduced last year. Sport-driving fans need not worry, though, as the AMG-tuned models continue to deliver high horsepower in a luxury wrapper.

What's new for 2012?

The big news for 2012 is that a S350 BlueTEC diesel model becomes available. The S550 gets a 4.6L twin-turbo V8 engine that makes 429 horsepower and 516 lb-feet of torque. A rear-seat entertainment system is newly optional on the S400 hybrid and on the S63.

Model Strengths

  • Clean diesel and Hybrid availability
  • world-class performance, comfort and safety
  • amazing available technology

Model Review

Once again, Mercedes-Benz revised their engine options on the S-Class. A new 3.0L BlueTEC V6 becomes available and the S550 receives a smaller-displacement, but more powerful twin-turbo 4.6L V8 over last year's 5.5L V8.
