2016 model year changes

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.

Special features for 2016

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.
The full-sized Mercedes-Benz S-Class is offered in multiple trim levels with a well-equipped base model. Standard features include: adjustable air suspension, LED lighting for head lamps, tail lamps and running lights, two-zone climate control, powered and heated front seats, powered and heated side mirrors, premium leather upholstery, tilt and telescope steering wheel, auto-dim rearview mirror, soft-closing doors, powered rear trunk lid, powered rear sunshade, panoramic sunroof, the COMAND interface with dual 12.3” touchscreens, GPS, collision mitigation system, Bluetooth/iPod/USB integration, HD radio, 18” alloy wheels, remote entry/start and a 13-speaker Burmester sound system. Add-ons can get you a hands-free trunk, 20” wheels, parking cameras, collision mitigation system, wood interior accents, sport-tuning, 24-speaker sound system and more. Under the hood is a turbocharged 4.7-liter V8 engine that’s rated at 449 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque.
