Elegant and Modern

The S-Class commands respect. The sedan's strong visual presence is highlighted by a sleek front end that incorporates triangular headlights and a classic Mercedes grille. The edges of the headlights flow into bulging front fenders that are mimicked over the rear wheels as well (see a side-by-side comparison with the 2007 model).

Contributing to the car's serious look is the optional AMG Sport Package that gives the S-Class some of the look, if not the performance, of a high-performance AMG version of the S-Class. The package includes 19-inch AMG-style alloy wheels, more-aggressive bumpers and rocker panels, and chrome exhaust tips. It costs $5,630.
