2009 Mercedes-Benz S550 4Matic

Much like the BMW 7-series, the S550 is not a car one can digest in one night. There's just so much going on, so much that it can do, that one barely scratches the surface by relating how it feels and how it drives.

So how does it feel and drive? Very nice and very nicely. Not enough information for you? Well, the beautiful leather chairs were quite comfortable, although I never figured out if there's a way to adjust the bolsters. The Command interface is easy to use, meaning it took me ten minutes to figure out how to turn on the radio, but was able to remember exactly how to turn it on again the following morning. Acceleration is effortless, and it felt quite nimble, keeping in mind that its primary goal in life is not to be nimble.
