      This is a 2014 S550.
      The 2015 S550 has a touch sensitive Cockpit Management and Data (COMAND®) system

      I thought so too. The 2015 has a palm rest that allows for finger control, whereas the 2014 has a padded palm rest with phone control numbers beneath it.

      Do not believe what MB is selling to you. I had so many issues with my new S Class , you won't beliveit!! Hackers open the car and take everything I had inside boot (almost 10K worth) !! Customer services are a joke here in UK, also having so many bad experiences with almost all service shops i was booked (7 times booked and they couldn't find the issue????!!!) problems, in Edgware Rd services are TERIBLE and very dishonest, there was a dent on the door when I came to pickup my car from services, they fixed just using some filler and brushed paint!. I had many luxuries cars but worse experiences with MB. I had to keep the car as the value goes down a lot in just one yr, I paid a lot to have almost all the options on it. NEVER EVER I'LL BUY AGAIN MERCEDES CAR!! Of course many people has to find it!

      Great review Tom, what a (modern) classic. Also interesting how many modern features we now take for granted, even on economy cars, were introduced on the S Class ... seatbelts, airbags, anti-lock brakes, cruise control, etc...

      Waste of money. Unless you have a driver because the car is best experienced from the back. Get an E or S coupe instead.

      As long as you don't have any kids I'm sure you could afford this car easily as a ophthalmologist and you'll love it. My dad actually bought a new one and it really has one the best interiors money can buy.

      I love this class I have three but in reality the thing most people don't get about the S class it's a safe and delightful car is even a 1966 it's a beautiful reliable and comfortable car and one of the few cars that the whole family enjoys writing in so I ask how much is that worth to you how much ?

      I'm pretty sure you're full of shit because someone who can't know the difference between writing and riding can't afford an s class lol auto correct doesn't make mistakes like that... So it's obvious you're either full of shit or its daddy money(which renders you useless for future generations) 💯

      hey Tom, you're an awesome car reviewer and a very likable person. the simple fact that you think YOU should make more money to afford this rather than finding some sarcastic remarks for the ones that already afford one speaks volumes...

      Regardless to the badge this car looks ugly. Add to that being overpriced and high cost of maintenance. This thing is one irrelevant piece of gas guzzling environmental disaster.

      Great Review Tom as always...I must admit...Ths current S really looks boss IMO among luxury flagships...This interior makes my friend's 2007 S550 look like something from the 1990s...Amazing how much nicer this interior looks.

      I'll have to get my wife to work harder and longer 'cause i'd love to have this in my garage... kidding aside - i agree this is the benchmark - not the 7-series.  

      Have you considered doing a series on which car you would put in your garage (i.e.: SUV, Luxury SUV, mid-size, compact, Sports Car under $40K etc ... love your take on this)

      Nice Hyundai. Seriously. Not that I care, but this looks like every other car on the road, only bigger. Not that it matters - I won't be buying one soon. My house, my car, and my  entire college education together cost less than this car.

      This car will probably by 65k in just 3-4 years.  Once warranty runs out, repairs will be huge

      From a non-performance perspective (i.e. Chris Harris), you are my best reviewer. Informative yet incredibly entertaining, I was cracking up left and right with this one. Wish it was longer. Thanks for all the hard work!

      The exterior does not look like a $129k car, however the interior does.

      Mercedes designers said they wanted it that way because it gives it a sleeper, fly under the radar look.

      You're not the only one who thinks that way !  MB should have improved the exterior, but they opted to make only cosmetic changes for the 2015 model.
