Model Highlights

At the entry level of the lineup, the S-Class is offered in S550 guise, with optional 4MATIC adding all-wheel drive. Both of these models are powered by a 449-horsepower 4.7L turbocharged V8 engine mated to 7-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. High-performance S63 AMG 4MATIC models pack a 5.5L twin-turbo V8 engine making 577 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque.

The S600 Maybach and S65 AMG models get a 6.0L twin-turbo V12 that makes 523 horsepower in the S600 and a whopping 621 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque in the S65 AMG. The S600, along with both AMG models, is fitted with a special AMG Speedshift 7-speed automatic transmission.

S-Class Coupes, meanwhile, are offered with the 449-horsepower 4.7L engine from the S550, while AMG variants come with or with the 5.5L twin-turbo or 6.0L V12. Finally, a new S-Class cabriolet is offered with the 449-horsepower V8 and an all-new 9G-TRONIC 9-speed automatic transmission. An AMG variant is available, of course: the S63 4MATIC cabriolet features the 5.5L V8 and an output of 577 horsepower and 664-pound-feet of torque, which is paired with the AMG Speedshift MCT 7-speed transmission.

AMG S-Class models offer the power and performance levels of an exotic sports car in a much more luxurious package, so owners get the same level of interior space and nearly the same comfort as any S-Class.

Magic Body Control is an optional feature in the S-Class; it actually scans the road surface and changes the suspension's settings to suit the kind of surface and your own desired level of comfort and control. MBC works together with the standard Active Damping System and AIRMATIC air suspension.

The S63 AMG gets a special AMG Adaptive Sports Suspension that's tuned to make the most of the all-wheel drive system's capability and this car's more performance-oriented setup. The S65 AMG also adds a sport version of Magic Body Control, but it also comes with a speed-sensitive sports steering with multiple settings and a distinct steering-wheel design. Special 20-inch AMG forged-alloy wheels are included in this model, along with a sport exhaust system with twin tailpipes and an available ceramic high-performance composite braking system.

Both the S63 and S65 AMG add a lithium-ion battery that saves more than 44 pounds and isn't as affected by cold temperatures as a normal car battery. And they both include an Eco Start/Stop feature that allows the engine (in some conditions) to stop automatically at stoplights and then restart when the driver lifts off the brake pedal.

All S-Class models include two high-resolution color screens, with a diagonal measurement of 12.3 inches. On the right are infotainment and comfort functions, while instrument-cluster and driver-specific controls are on the left. Expanded voice entry is now allowed for phone and audio systems, and there's a feature that will read text messages aloud. It also includes a customizable head-up display, and the COMAND infotainment display has now been supplemented with a touch pad.

A Burmester Surround Sound system with optional 3D surround offers a so-called Frontbass system that uses woofers placed in the firewall, eliminating the need to take up door space.

The S-Class continues to have some of the best seats in any vehicle. In sedan versions, the rear seat features a limousine-like ambiance with the optional Executive Rear Seat package, which brings folding tables and upgraded back-seat appointments -- including a backrest angle that's adjustable up to 43.5 degrees. A Plus version of that package even brings an aircraft-style seat with Peltier technology that can keep drinks cool or warm. There's a hot-stone-inspired energizing massage function, with six massage programs, including two that provide warming, and the active seat ventilation system now uses reverse fans to help reduce drafts. Other noteworthy options for interior comfort include the Air Balance Package, which brings ionized air purification and has an active air-perfuming feature.

In addition to regular S-Class equipment, the S65 AMG gets a Napa leather roof liner, leather-lined dash and door panels, extra wood trim and AMG door sill panels with white illumination. The gauge cluster is AMG-specific, with additional round-dial gauges for engine and transmission oil temp.

Personalization options on the AMG models include a carbon fiber package, a wood and Napa leather-wrapped steering wheel, the ceramic-brake upgrade, red brake calipers and special carbon fiber and black piano lacquer trim.

Safety takes center stage in the S-Class, once again. As part of a $2,800 Driver Assistance Package, prospective buyers can add the DISTRONIC PLUS radar-based cruise control, PRE-SAFE autonomous braking; the PRE-SAFE PLUS rear-facing radar warning system; BAS PLUS with Cross Traffic Assist (using stereoscopic cameras to help prevent an accident); Active Lane Keeping Assist; and Active Blind Spot Protection. There's also Night View Assist Plus, a feature that continues to be refined, and uses infrared and camera information to detect animals and people along the road ahead.


Model News

Following last year's introduction of the S-Class coupe, the 2016 S-Class adds a new model to the lineup in the form of a cabriolet -- the marquee's first open-top flagship 4-seater since 1971. The S550 Cabriolet is powered by a 449-horsepower V8 and is fitted with AIRMATIC semi-active air suspension. The car utilizes about 60 percent of the coupe's body components while benefitting from an aluminum rear floor. Pyrotechnically activated roll bars extend to protect occupants in the event of a rollover.


Value Writeup

With a base price of over $90,000 -- and prices that can range to near double that for a well-equipped S65 AMG, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz S-Class lineup isn't cheap. That's always been beside the point, though; the S-Class continues to showcase the leading edge of automotive technology -- including some world firsts for active safety -- and in ride comfort and interior ambiance.

With Mercedes-Benz's PRE-SAFE technologies, owners get some of the most sophisticated accident-avoidance systems in the world. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is also the first regular-production car to move entirely to LEDs for lighting -- with the entire car now using more than 400 LEDs, including up to 56 for the headlamps.

Summary
Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC. (MBUSA) is recalling certain model year 2013-2015 SL550, 2013-2014 SL63 AMG, 2014-2016 E350, 2014 E350 Cabriolet, E350 Coupe, 2014-2015 S550, 2015 E350 Bluetec, 2015-2016 E400, 2016 E550 Coupe, and Maybach S600 vehicles manufactured August 23, 2012, to August 14, 2015. The affected vehicles use an electric power steering system that may have improperly soldered contacts inside the control unit, potentially resulting in the power steering system deactivating while driving.

Consequence
If the control unit pins lose connection, there would be a loss of electric power steering assist, increasing the risk of a crash. The increase in pin contact resistance can also increase the risk of a fire, even while the vehicle is parked and ignition is off.

MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the electric power steering control unit, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during February 2017. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.

Summary
Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (MBUSA) is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 S63 AMG Coupe, S65 AMG Coupe, S550 Coupe 4Matic, S63 AMG 4Matic Convertible, and S550 Convertible vehicles manufactured June 29, 2015, to March 15, 2016. The seat belt extenders on the affected vehicles may not retract as intended and may potentially break the event of a crash.

Consequence
In the event of a crash, if the seat belt extender does not retract and/or the extender breaks, the seat occupant may not be properly restrained, increasing their risk of injury.

MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will update the control unit software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in mid-December 2016. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.

The low beam headlights on the affected vehicles may not be properly adjusted. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."

Consequence
If the low-beam headlights are out of adjustment, the driver's visibility may be reduced, increasing the risk of a crash.

MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and correct the headlight adjustment, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in November 2016. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.
