Review and by Peter Bleakney


Cedar Point, Ohio – it a form of discrimination if you will, but the looking for a dash of green in full-sized luxury sedans had pickins here in North Only the Lexus LS 600h was on the which currently carries a tag

Mercedes-Benz (as well as Audi, BMW and sells an efficient, clean and diesel variant of its flagship in Europe. But this being America, Mercedes knows to peddle an oil-burner S-Class would be like pushing an 1982 Oldsmobile 98 diesel up the escarpment.

Fine and technical gobble-de-gook and hybrid-hype does the limo deliver? about six hours of 120 km/h (2,100 r.p.m.), the display 8.3 L/100 km of premium fuel That’s impressive for a swift, kg luxury sedan. Official are 11.0L/100 km city and 7.7L/100 km
