2010 Mercedes-Benz S-class / / S600

The recipient of a 2010 the S-class is as good as ever.

you#x2019;re Rain Man#x2014;or an nerd#x2014;it#x2019;s going to be mighty to tell the 2010 Mercedes-Benz from the one that#x2019;s been on since early 2006. The changes are essentially limited to a new bumper and grille; an integrated at the rear; and the use of LEDs for the taillamps and running lights and as accent in the headlamps. But the minor aesthetic hide more state-of-the-art underneath, as well as one unwelcome change.

The new technologies found in the 2010 S, goes on sale in August, much of the stuff introduced the recently redesigned 2010 That means adaptive the addition of pedestrian detection for the assist, a lane-keeping system, and the system. Interior changes to the new include a new steering wheel and lighting that is now selectable to one of hues instead of one. The model also gets Bluetooth functionality, an SD card in the dash, an iPod/media interface in the box, and HD radio.

As for the driving, the W221 S600 is the same physics-defying, mind-blowing, machine as before. The steering is weighted, plenty talkative for a touch of on-center numbness), and accurate. The brakes are super-strong and lots of feel. The ride may be the of any other car#x2019;s, a mix of firm and marshmallowy coddling. There#x2019;s a bit of lag you wait for the twin turbos to up, but once they#x2019;re puffing air the 510-hp, 612-lb-ft 12-cylinder, it as if you could accelerate forever. (Or you plunge into an ocean, A new torque-vectoring function for the stability on all 2010 S-classes gently the inside rear wheel to mitigate understeer. There#x2019;s no weakness in the driving experience.

You used to be able to unequivocally say the thing about the 382-hp, S550. But now, depending on how you the car, you could come feeling an eensy bit disappointed. You avoid the options list and with the base car#x2014;at $90,000, it#x2019;s the model for people#x2014;and you don#x2019;t get the active control (ABC) adaptive The lack of ABC doesn#x2019;t concern us; the body motions are still controlled even without the technology, which adds a function this year. But cars (all S600s it as standard) have hydraulically steering, whereas those ABC have#x2014; gulp! #x2014; steering. It might not sound much, but the difference is like a drink made

with well liquor or the stuff pulled from the top It#x2019;ll do the job, but it#x2019;s near as smooth and satisfying. The boosted rack, which is found in the new-for-2010 S400 is a characterless affair.

It#x2019;s really splitting though, since the S-class in any is still one of the finest cars in the It#x2019;s ultra-luxurious, ultra-refined, and and it doesn#x2019;t shy away from hustled. The refreshed 2010 is#x2014;as the S always has been#x2014;satisfying in a way cars simply aren#x2019;t.
