2009 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Review

More About This Model

Mercedes-Benz is to automotive luxury what Kleenex is to tissues or Q-tips are to cotton swabs, so much has the brand become ingrained in the vernacular. The S-Class sedans are among the most glittering rocks in the manufacturer's display case, and are favored by those with the resources to afford the very finest. The S550 is the volume seller of this storied class. Luxury sedans are expected to telegraph elegance, and the 2009 Mercedes-Benz S550 doesn't disappoint. With its haughty sheet metal — marked by a swooping hood and a prim bustle of a back end — the sedan exudes old-money sumptuousness. It's a more classic look than you'll find in any of its competitors — less youthful, perhaps, but impeccably refined.

It's not just its distinguished appearance that makes the S550 so appealing to the Bel-Air and Hamptons set. With ferocious acceleration and a forgiving yet communicative ride quality, the car's handling judiciously balances comfort with performance. The exhaustive amenities list adds every conceivable high-tech indulgence that a moneyed driver could hope to buy, though it should be noted that these options added a hefty $20 large to our test car's price tag.

Of course, this Mercedes isn't the only worthy German in the room. The more performance-oriented BMW 7 Series is the enthusiast's choice, and with the lowest price tag of the three, Audi's well-crafted A8 offers loads of value. However, the 2009 Mercedes-Benz S550 outdoes them both when it comes to grandeur. Hands-down, it's the definitive luxury sedan.

Should I lease or buy a 2009 Mercedes-Benz S-Class?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
