Being the best at something year after year is no small feat, but that's precisely what the Mercedes-Benz S-Class has accomplished. Even as the last-generation S-Class drove off into the sunset, it stood atop the large luxury sedan class. The pressure was on yet again for the new S-Class to uphold its tradition of excellence and, by all accounts, Mercedes-Benz has done it. The redesigned S-Class earns the Edmunds Top Rated Luxury Sedan award for 2022.

"A new Mercedes-Benz S-Class always carries a weight of expectation for next-level comfort, technology and opulence. Thankfully, the new S-Class doesn't just meet expectations — it exceeds them."

The latest S-Class takes everything that made it great and makes it just a bit better. Comfort is well represented with impressively accommodating seats and a ride quality that remains glassy smooth even on the roughest of roads. Helping matters is an interior that is as stately as the exterior, with premium materials that seem impossibly perfect. And if that wasn't enough, the S-Class also boasts a wealth of advanced driver assistance features, fuel-efficient engines and a feature-rich infotainment system.

It's no surprise that the Mercedes-Benz S-Class remains the best you can get. It may not be within reach of most budgets, but we're confident that it will exceed many of your highest expectations.
