What's the Difference?
The purpose of these two sedans is a little different from the other. For starters, the S 560 has about twice as much horsepower as its smaller sibling. It’s built for performance, providing a faster response time and smoother drive for those who want the best of the best. One thing the E 300 has that the S 560 doesn’t have is X-to-X Communication, an advanced system that sends warnings and notifications to other E-Class models, alerting them of poor road conditions or traffic jams.

- Adaptive variable suspension

- Genuine wood trim
- Front power memory seats
- Heated/cooled front seats
