Mercedes S-Class 2021 review - the best car EVER?
Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
It’s the review you’ve all been waiting for... the all-new Mercedes S-Class!
It’s the car Mat’s been waiting for oh-so-long to test drive, but will it be worth the wait? Well in this in-depth review, he’ll be taking you over every inch of this new luxury limousine to see whether it has what it takes to compete with its predecessors.
When it comes to performance, we already know it’s packing a number of petrol, diesel and hybrid options. For our UK viewers, our petrol options are currently topped off by the S500, which is a 3-litre straight-six turbo that can produce 435hp. But if you’re after more power, you’ll want to choose the hybrid S580e, where the 3-litre straight-six is joined by an electric motor to produce 510hp! But if we're being honest, we’re all waiting for the upcoming AMG S63, which will have a twin-turbo V8 and be able to put down over 600hp!
So performance is all well and good, but let’s face it, you’re all probably more excited by the interior! But will it live up to its high expectations? And more importantly, just how good is the infotainment system on that HUGE centre console screen? Well, there’s only one way to find out… Stay right here for Mat’s all-new in-depth review!

    I can't like the interior. I get that touchscreens are the new trend for cars now but this is too much. I like at least a few real buttons, and there's no pretty analog clock on the center of the dash, and the worst part is that the dashboard doesn't mold together AT ALL. The guage cluster screen looks like it was straight up taped on sticking straight up like that. But the center screen is the worst, it clearly doesn't even fit on the dash and the climate control vents look like mercedes forgot about them until after they were done taping the iPad to the console. Just Too. Much. Screen. There's something to be said for subtlety and a finely molded dashboard. In that regard the Lexus LS 500 has won my heart, the dashboard flows together perfectly and still has screens. I'm not paying $100k for a rolling identity crisis and a poorly fitted dash.

    Usually I say the Hyundai Genesis looks like a Merecedes S-Class. But this S-Class looks kinda Korean to me. Not stately enough, kinda subdued. I want my S-class to look classy! Now that I've finished the video, I have to say that it's a technological tour de force. How about that parrallel parking?!!!
