1990 Mercedes-Benz 560-Class 560SEL 4dr Sedan


Driving this car makes you feel like no one can touch you. The car has great power for the day and can handle pretty well too. The fact that mine is black over black just adds to its presence. For being so heavy, its massive 5.6 liter has enough torque to move this beast faster than you could think was possible. The interior is classic Mercedes; wood throughout, nice leather seats with all the electric options, and easy to understand buttons, make it a great place to sit. This being a 1990, it has a more advanced sound system than years prior, and it sounds quite good considering its now 24 years old. The biggest aspect of the car that lets it down, is of course the gas mileage.

Best Features

One of the best features is the rear seats reclining and being heated. Its got that classic V8 sound, but this being a S-class, it is muffled.

Worst Features

The gas mileage is really poor. You'll be lucky to get more than 12 mpg with mixed driving, and having to fill an almost 25 gallon tank with premium can really hurt if you drive this everyday.
