2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 9.1

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class has one of the nicest interiors on the market, with palatial seating, a long list of features, and a good amount of trunk space in the sedan. However, coupe and convertible models offer less seating and cargo room, and the infotainment system can take some getting used to.

  • "There are precious few automotive interiors we'd rather be in than that of the S-class. The cabin is contemporary and overtly luxurious." -- Car and Driver
  • "The build quality, both inside and out, is nearly impeccable, as you'd expect from a flagship luxury car. The leather work is excellent on both the dash and the seats, and not a stitch is out of place." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "Ultra-luxury sedans from Rolls-Royce and Bentley notwithstanding, the S-Class cabin remains one of the most opulent available. (And in Mercedes-Maybach form, it can even make a case against those fabled British land yachts.) Just about every touch point is covered in quality material made from leather, wood or metal. Even the aroma of the cabin itself is special, thanks to the standard Air Balance fragrance system with a replaceable vial of olfactory serum in the glove box." -- Kelley Blue Book (2019)

Seating

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class sedan seats five people in its standard configuration, while coupe, convertible, and some higher sedan trims only seat four. The front seats in all models are incredibly sumptuous, and the sedan versions offer excellent rear-seat comfort and space. The second rows in coupe and convertible models are a little tighter, but they still afford a sufficient amount of room for adult passengers.

Standard seating features include leather upholstery, a power rear-window sunshade, power soft-closing doors, and 16-way power-adjustable, heated front seats with memory settings.

Optional amenities include Nappa or designo leather upholstery, massaging front seats, ventilated and rapid-heating front seats, power rear side-window sunshades (sedan), a power rear passenger-side footrest (sedan), massaging rear seats (sedan), power-adjustable rear seats, and rear seat-back folding tables.

For securing child safety seats, the S-Class has two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the rear outboard seats.

  • "The ride is regal, the seats are beyond comfortable and the audio system would make Mozart weep for joy." -- Autotrader (2019)
  • "[The] S-Class sedan offers laudable rear-seat room, and even more can be had in the long-wheelbase Mercedes-Maybach, which boasts two individual rear seats. By their nature, the S-Class coupe and convertible are tighter in back but still respectable for a 4-seater." -- Kelley Blue Book (2019)
  • "The highest priority in the S-Class is passenger comfort, and it doesn't matter whether you sit in the front or the back to soak it all in. From the moment you get in to the moment you get out, the S 450 takes care of its occupants like almost nothing else." -- Edmunds (2019)

Interior Features

Standard features in the 2020 S-Class include a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, dual-zone automatic climate control, and proximity keyless entry. The standard COMAND infotainment system includes a 12.3-inch screen, a 13-speaker Burmester surround-sound stereo, navigation, voice recognition, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, wireless device charging, satellite radio, two USB ports, and Bluetooth.

The S-Class’ screens are controlled via a knob on the center console or an adjacent touchpad. The infotainment display is crisp and features impressive graphics. However, there are numerous functions to learn, so it can take some time to become familiar with the system.

Optional interior features include a rear-seat refrigerator box (coupe and sedan), a 26-speaker Burmester premium stereo, a rear-seat entertainment system (sedan), rear-seat wireless device charging, the Magic Sky panoramic sunroof (coupe and sedan), Mercedes' Airscarf (convertible), a cabin air purification and fragrance system, quad-zone automatic climate control (sedan), and heated and cooled rear cup holders (sedan).

The S-Class comes standard with forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, driver attention monitoring, adaptive headlights, automatic high-beam headlights, a rearview camera, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, and automatic parking assist.

Optional safety features include adaptive cruise control, automatic steering assist, evasive steering assist, front cross-traffic alert and braking, automatic speed limit assist, automatic lane change assist, a head-up display, a surround-view parking camera system, and night vision assist. Also available is Mercedes' Pre-Safe Plus, which automatically rolls up the windows and tightens the seat belts when sensors detect an impending rearward collision.

  • "Behind its impressive visage—and huge screen area from its dual 12.3-inch displays—the S-class's infotainment system is complex and holds the potential to overwhelm users. The menu structures are straightforward enough, but they juggle a great number of functions and options." -- Car and Driver
  • "There's a lot to a modern S-Class, so it behooves the owner to delve into the many menus. That said, the Benz is fairly easy to figure out thanks to a logical menu structure, quick response times and ergonomic controls. Only the pressure-sensitive steering wheel nubs seem unnecessary and difficult to use." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "The standard 12.3-inch central display is impressive." -- Kelley Blue Book (2019)

Cargo

The S-Class sedan has 18.7 cubic feet of trunk space, which is excellent for a super luxury car. A hands-free power trunk lid comes standard. The S-Class coupe has 10.4 cubic feet of space. In the convertible, there's 12.4 cubic feet of space with the roof up and 6.9 cubic feet with it down.

  • "The S-class has a smaller trunk than you might imagine and doesn't have a folding back seat to open up extra cargo room. We managed to fit five of our carry-on suitcases inside the trunk of both the sedan and the coupe." -- Car and Driver
  • "The coupe's trunk area is 10.4 cu ft., not particularly roomy. The cabriolet's cargo space is 12.4 cu ft. with the roof up, or 8.8 cu ft. when it's folded away." -- Autotrader (2019)
  • "Passengers' comfort is clearly prioritized over cargo space, but the S 450 still offers a nicely sized and easy-to-open load-and-close trunk." -- Edmunds (2019)
