There are vehicles in the automotive realm that are known as flagships. The term flagship historically originates from a naval term that refers to the finest ship in the fleet, the ship that carried the commander.


That term (and distinction) has been thrown around quite frivolously by automakers trying to pump up their favored car, but in the context of Mercedes-Benz vehicles, there is no doubt that the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is truly a must-own luxury car, and we’re not shy about saying it: it is is unquestionably Mercedes’ flagship vehicle.


And when we say that, we don’t mean to throw that term around lightly. Here’s what makes the Mercedes-Benz S-Class the brand’s flagship vehicle and why it’s a must-own.

A Legacy of Greatness

First and foremost, one has to acknowledge the greatness of the Mercedes-Benz brand. Unlike other automotive companies, Mercedes-Benz has a legacy that stretches as far back to the late 19th century, and in today’s context, few luxury automobile brands have that long-storied past that still remains as strong today as it did almost 150 years ago.


The S-Class is the progeny of that legacy, and when you explore the technology, power, and luxury that the S-Class delivers, one realizes that calling it the brand’s flagship vehicle is by no means a far-fetched statement.

Unparalleled Luxury 

When you step inside the cockpit or rear compartment of an S-Class sedan, the realization that you’re inside an amazing luxury vehicle is nearly instantaneous. The cross-sewn ravine-like stitching on the seats, the firm, sink-into-the-sofa softness of the cushioning provided by the seats, and the precisely cut dashboard, you might catch yourself staring at the interior for quite a while before feeling the yearning to start the ignition.


When driving, the ride is smooth and effortless, and the next-generation Mercedes-Benz technology lights the way with piercing and precise LED headlamps, while smart front-facing sensors that detect potential hazards and aid the driver in intelligently switching lanes.


Aside from the fantastic technology inputs, the driving-assistance and next-generation audio technology, courtesy of a Burmester audio system, gives you a complete driving experience that you otherwise won’t be able to have outside of a Mercedes-Benz, let alone an S-Class.


Which is precisely why in order to get your hands on the Mercedes-Benz flagship, you have to visit Mercedes-Benz of Morgantown to test drive and eventually own the S-Class for yourself.
