The Top Gear car review:Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe
Running costs and reliability
You’re not buying an S-Class Coupe – the flagship two-door Merc – to save money. You could buy an E-Class Coupe and get broadly the same look, most of the luxury and all of the tech for half as much. But you don’t want to do that, do you? Which is why it’s of no concern to you that the cheapest S-Class Coupe – the S560 in AMG Line trim (the only trim available in the UK, besides the proper AMGs) starts at £103,715. The S63 is from £127,515, and the 65 is from a staggering £189,615.
And options are pricey – the S560 we tested was optioned up to £133,672 (six of that the fancy leather, five the stereo and another four for the suspension) – but who cares? That said this is not a car that demands you throw a load of options at it – S Coupes come as standard with everything you could conceivably want and more. 90 per cent as desirable even without all the added extras.
The S Coupe should at least be relatively cheap to run, at least given its size and performance. The 560 promises 34mpg and 188g/km, while the 63 gives 31.7mpg and 203g/km. As for the S65, if you have to ask then it’s probably not the car for you.
