The entry-level Mercedes S Class is the regular wheelbase S350d 4Matic – costing 88,446 euros if you want entry in the limousine class of the German automaker.

The facelifted Mercedes S Class has just appeared about a month ago during the Auto Shanghai event in China, and now the model is ready to reach the driveway of anyone living in Europe. The order books have been opened and first deliveries will start in July for customers on the old continent – the flagship of the three-pointed star brand is sold in four versions: S350d, S400d, S560, and S63, all of them also equipped with the “4Matic” all -wheel drive system.

With the S350d being the entry level version, it will command a price of €88,446 in Germany, with the same model but with a long wheelbase starting at €91,791. The flavor uses an inline-six 3.0-liter engine packing 286 hp (210 kW) & 600 Nm (442 lb-ft). The S400d (€93,206 and €96,479, respectively) will grant the buyer 340 hp (250 kW) & 700 Nm (516 lb-ft). Gasoline power fans will settle for the S560 with 4.0-liter V8 churning out 469 hp (345 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) – the short wheelbase kicks off at €113,960, long wheelbase at €116,994, and the Maybach is at least €143,508. For the time being the flagship version of the flagship is the S63, in LWB guise and costing at least €160,293 with 612 hp (450 kW) and 900 Nm (664 lb-ft) on tap thanks to 4.0-liter V8.
