Mercedes-Benz S350 Bluetec White

“The 2012 Mercedes-Benz S350 4MATIC BlueTEC is the best long-distance cruiser money can buy in America. Period.”

“So why is the S350 4MATIC BlueTEC such a compelling car? Because it feels so much like a Mercedes-Benz S-Class used to feel — effortlessly relaxed and comfortable, and utterly bulletproof. It has the languid majesty that’s been missing from some of the more frenetically powerful S-Class models of recent years.”

“We averaged 72 mph for a 500-mile stint out of L.A. and got 29.2 mpg, and over a total of 913 miles that included about 120 miles of urban running and a fast 50-mile blast along one of our favorite backroads, where at times we cruised at 100 mph, the big Benz returned 26.1 mpg.”

“While an AMG S-class would be all sturm und drang through the twisties, staccato bursts of brute thrust and savage braking accompanied by a bellowing V-8 soundtrack, the S-class diesel flows down the tarmac with studied nonchalance. Which, when you think about it, is exactly what a large luxury limousine should do.”
