The mid-range model in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class 2018 range is the S 560, which is the only model in the range to be available in both short- and long-wheelbase variants.
Looking for a used Mercedes-Benz?

Buy with confidence; all Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned vehicles come with a factory backed warranty, 100 point safety check, comprehensive service history and 24hr roadside assistance.

The mid-range model in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class 2018 range is the S 560, which is the only model in the range to be available in both short- and long-wheelbase variants.

There's a big price jump between those two versions: the regular S 560 costs $270,000 plus on-roads and the stretched out S 560 L lists at $295,000.

The S 560 adds the following nice features: nappa leather seat trim, brown burr walnut trim, a wood/leather steering wheel, 'Energizing Comfort Control', different (five-spoke design) 20-inch wheels, laminated glass and an anti-theft protection package. The S 560 L has luxury rear head restraints - they’re more like pillows, honestly - an individual rear-seat entertainment system and two wireless headsets.

All that is on top of the standard kit of the S-Class range, which includes heated and cooled front seats,  LED headlights and a new interior ambient lighting system, a panoramic sunroof, head-up display, auto-dimming rear-view and side mirrors, a wireless phone charging system, keyless entry and push-button start, auto-closing doors and an electric boot lid, too. 

The S 560 and S 560L run the same 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol with 345kW of power and 700Nm of torque. It has a nine-speed auto, and is rear-drive - naturally! Fuel use for both models is 8.5L/100km.
