Mercedes’s S-Class has always been a technological powerhouse, the repository of the company’s most radical advances and forward-thinking ideas. The results can’t be denied.

They include truly significant safety advances like crumple zones in the 1950s and electronic stability control 40 years later; advances that have filtered down to every car on the market. It’s possible someone you know has had their life saved by a car that they didn’t even buy.

The all-new, 2014 S550 rear- and all-wheel-drive models will be released this fall, with prices likely to start just south of $100,000. (I estimate the car I tested with all the gizmos was more than $140,000.)
