2014 Mercedes-Benz S550
The new flagship S-Class sedan from Mercedes-Benz has an intimidating look and a jaw-dropping amount of comfort technology. It glides over the road, takes over some of the driving burden with assistance technologies, massages the driver, and even scents the cabin air.
- Overall score: 9.1 (4.5 stars)

The good: Mammoth cabin space and smooth ride quality make the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S550's cabin the place to be, whether in front or back. LED lights and big LCD dashboard panels keep the tech ahead of the pack. A new Steering Assist feature eases driving in heavy traffic.
The bad: App integration loads too slowly for general use. Virtual instrument gauges look a little flat, and it needs a graphic fuel gauge.
The bottom line: Mercedes-Benz takes a big step forward with its 2014 S550 flagship sedan, improving just about every feature in this model update, but app integration suffers from slow connection times.
