2014 Mercedes-Benz S550 4MATIC Review: Introduction
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is an important car not just for the German luxury kingpin, but also for the rest of the automotive industry as it discovers just how much catch-up it will have to play in order to draw even with this paragon of progress. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has always served as rolling notice that the technological bar has been raised, and after its complete redesign for 2014 it's safe to say that the new S550 4MATIC continues this proud tradition.
In fact, it would seem that the fresh generation of S-Class pushes past the limits of what is humanly possible and establishes firm footing for the semi-autonomous driving technologies that have been percolating on the options lists of a number of modern automobiles. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S550 4MATIC isn't completely defined by its computer-assisted take on tomorrow's driving habits - it's far too comprehensive a model for that - but it's steps ahead of rivals like the Audi A8, the BMW 7 Series, and the Jaguar XJ when it comes to formulating the next stage of full-size luxury sedan evolution.
