2008 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Interior
This interior review was written when the 2008 Mercedes-Benz S-Class was new.
As the signature car for an automaker that prides itself on a 100-year-old reputation for luxury, the S-Class has an extraordinary interior. It features 14-way power-adjustable seats with bolsters that inflate to cradle passengers through sharp turns, and no reviewer fails to praise them. Reviews also make note of the incredible technology of the cabin. Motor Trend says "buyers may have trouble simply figuring out which gizmo to play with next."
All major luxury brands now offer a driver-interface system that controls entertainment, climate control and navigation features through a single screen. COMAND (Cockpit Management and Data) is Mercedes' take on the idea, and while some reviewers praise it, others find it hard to operate. But, Motor Trend points out, "If you absolutely refuse to lift a finger, many of the systems are also voice-activated."
