2018 Mercedes-Benz S450 Review: Six Appeal

– New York, New York

Among the many changes for the refreshed 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class – my colleague Steven Ewing detailed the upgrades earlier this year – is the introduction of a new six-cylinder engine that slots beneath the V8-powered S560. Dubbed S450, the new base powertrain provides a thriftier entrance into S-Class ownership for shoppers. But because it’s wrapped up in such a lovely car, there’s nothing “base” at all about the S450 model. If you’ve got to drive, well, anywhere, the 2018 S-Class makes the journey easy and glamorous.
