“Few automakers do luxury like Mercedes-Benz and the new S-Class is a level above its competition,” said AutoGuide Group Editorial Director Colum Wood.

Giving readers a choice to voice their opinion on which new car is the best, AutoGuide.com polled its readers as well as the over 30 million members of the 400+ AutoGuide Group forums, who responded by picking the S-Class Coupe as their luxury car of the year.
“Few automakers do luxury like Mercedes-Benz and the new S-Class is a level above its competition,” said AutoGuide Group Editorial Director Colum Wood. “Wrapped up in a sleek package with an engine that’s as powerful as it is smooth, the new S-Class Coupe epitomizes what a luxury car should be.”
The last time Mercedes offered a coupe version of its flagship car, it was called the CL-Class. Rather than re-using that nameplate, the company is selling its large two-door luxury car as the S-Class Coupe. As you probably know, it uses a 4.7-liter V8 that produces 449 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. Give the throttle a generous push and you’ll hear a slightly muffled roar as the car presses on its rear wheels and surges forward with power unbecoming of such a vehicle its size.
