Mercedes-Benz gave its S-Class a major rework for the 2014 model year, smoothing out the bodywork and vastly updating the tech. The resulting S550 is an extraordinary luxury sedan that will have the competition struggling to keep up.
Mercedes-Benz adds its app integration feature to the S-Class, and includes a healthy sampling, from Google search to TuneIn Internet radio. Unfortunately, the connection and load times for these apps render them largely unusable.
Audio sources in the S550 are abundant, although the interface still distinguishes between broadcast and local media. Along with Bluetooth audio, the S550 includes two USB ports in its center console, one for iOS devices and one for USB drives.
