When it comes to luxury travel, few cars outside of the super rich Rolls Royce and Maybach arena, can match the Mercedes S-Class. The four-door saloon is the epitome of sophistication with unrivalled refinement, an interior that insulates you from the outside world and a beautifully styled cabin that blends classic and modern elements.

Buying used

The 320 CDI and 350 are the most common models around and represent good value for money as a second hand buy as standard equipment is generous. Most people buying new will spend thousands on optional extras so it is worth finding out exactly what any potential purchase is fitted with. Don't get conned into paying extra for a car if it has options that you don't need or will never use.

For example - the reversing camera is worthwhile but the Night View Assist is more of a gimmick.

Selling

Most buyers will want the 320 CDI model as it offers the best blend of performance and economy, but any S-Class model should generate interest. The standard wheelbase is enough for most buyers while the high level of standard equipment should be a good selling point.
