Toys For Boys — Garish and over-the-top in so many ways, but probably with the features we’ll find normal in 10 years’ time. Massaging seats the main party trick, but infra-red camera for front helps turn night into day on interior LCD TV, which changes back into a very clear speedometer in other circumstances. Double glazing, telescopic doors that open to any angle. Big car, and it feels it. Certainly not perfect as it’s not satisfying as a driver’s car, but there are too many toys up front that you wouldn’t want a chauffeur to enjoy them all.

Pros: Equipment, technological advances

Cons: Cumbersome

Well.... It Could Be Better —

Design Looks like a Mercedes from a mile. Doesn't look like anything else on the streets. Performance The 3.5L v6 engine makes this cars move pretty fast. It would move better with a 5.0 V8. I also believe that the breaks installed are not strong enough. It could be better and safer if Mercedes had installed -at least- the 4 pot Brembo-made callipers. Handling is AMAZING, if you make a minor mistake, the car will correct it. If the mistake is more serious, the PRE-SAFE system will make sure your body is in the best position for the up-coming crash. It will change the settings of your sit, the distance between your sit and the steering wheel, prepare the safety belts and after the crash it will unlock doors and turn on the alarm light. Please don't try to go fast on a narrow mountain road... You'll most likely get killed. Build quality. Looks and feels stiff and German made. Once you are over the shock caused of quality and luxuries inside this car, then you see that they used the same quality plastic parts, Mercedes uses in cheaper models. And you just know that after couple of years you will hear them on each and every bump. Extras The list of extras is of the same size with a phone book. You can order anything! Night-view assistance, orthopaedic front seats, rear-seat entertainment system, massage seats, climate-controlled seats.... ETC If you can afford them... get them all!!! This car is made for long trips. It will take you anywhere and make sure you get there safe, in luxury and effortless.

Pros: Everything except

Cons: Brakes, weight and performance
