The S550 might be Mercede’s most impressive vehicle. A symbol of wealth and class that will have you in awe. The S550 was suppose to rival the BMW 7 series cars, but in reality this car is competing against Bentleys and Rolls Royces’. A myriad of functions were implemented into this model that only warrant this vehicle's beauty. Mercedes decided to leave everything on the table with this car, constructing the most comfortable ride you might ever experience.
The inside of the S550 boasts an unprecedented level of opulence. A close rival to Bentley’s, the S550 has features that will constantly be surprising you. The seats in this car are not your ordinary seats, these seats has a six selection massage feature inputted into them, leaving you never wanting to get up. Right next to the back seats (which also includes the massage function), there are airplane style popout tables just in case you decide to eat a meal, or do some work while on the go. These cars have also integrated a built in wifi hotspot, helping you not burn through your data every month so fast. A fragrance dispenser has been implemented into this car so provide passengers with the best smell possible around the clock. To keep up with the constantly changing weather, Mercedes installed a dual zone automatic climate control to help bring you the exact temperature you want, without having to do a thing. These models are a staple piece of this cars lavishness. They aligned the roof with a panoramic sunroof so that you can take in as much sun as possible while you are down here. Integrated into this vehicle, you will hear the unbelievable 24 speaker surround sound system made by Burmester. This system is outrageous, bringing the most crystal clear sound from every direction. The S550 provides about 16.3 cubic feet of cargo space which can carry about two large bags and two small ones. Mercedes took luxury to its highest level with this model, but beware, if you rent this vehicle, you will throw up a fit before you give it up.
The Mercedes engineers inputted a ton of performance into this ritzy model. Under the hood you can see the 4.6-liter turbocharged V8 that can generate up to 449 horsepower. It can get up to 20 miles per gallon which is not the greatest fuel efficiency, but it certainly is not bad with a V8 in the mix. This car seems effortless, running like a thing of beauty. The engine on this is also not very loud at all, not annoying people every time you accelerate. You can barely hear the car from the extremely quiet interior. Driving this car will have you the happiest you have been in years.
Mercedes engineers designed this car with a million safety features that makes driving a lot more effortless. They decided to put in front and rear seat airbags, side curtain airbags, and driver’s knee airbags. While driving on the highway, you will receive a massive amount of help from the functions that were inputted into this car. The advanced blind spot assist system is a highly technological control that helps the driver steer back into their lane if the driver fails to hear the initial warning. The lane keeping assist system also provides steering assistance and automatic braking if the driver is not fully there. Another crazy feature implemented is the magic body control; this feature detects bumps and other imperfections in the road ahead and automatically adjusts the air suspension to compensate. Big bumps in the road will feel like mere pebbles with this adjustment system. On the dashboard the driver gets alerts from the night vision alert system that shows pedestrians and animals that might not be visible in the headlights. The safety features are magnificent, skyrocketing this car’s value to that of Bentleys.
The Mercedes S550 is an effortless ride that collides luxury with technology. Leading Mercedes luxury models, this vehicle will leave you with your jaw dropped. Little features such as the fragrance dispenser are a staple mark of this cars opulence. If you are renting, make a statement and rent the S550.
