The Mercedes-Benz S-Class was introduced in 1972 as a series of luxury sedans featuring all of the company’s most up-to-date features and technology. While it's still Mercedes-Benz’s flagship vehicle, it's also the best-selling luxury sedan in the world. It expands its profile by offering a new two-door coupe in addition to the traditional sedan. Furthermore, it belongs to the W140 series, which debuted in 1991 and brought larger proportions and a longer list of updated features to the lineup.

The 1995 Mercedes-Benz S-Class receives only very minor exterior revisions. The whole series also benefits from a drop in price.
The 1995 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is available in two body styles: a two-door coupe and a four-door sedan. Both styles feature a sleek, sophisticated exterior design that’s sturdy and luxurious without being overly flashy. This is a car that will continue to look appealing and in-style for years to come. Standard exterior features include alloy wheels, a full-size spare tire, power windows, a power antenna, fog lights, and a rear window defogger.
The 1995 Mercedes-Benz S-Class’s interior is supremely luxurious and spacious. Leather upholstery is standard in all models. Other basic interior features include cruise control, a tachometer, tilt steering, air-conditioning, bucket seats, tinted glass, powered front seats, and a Bose audio system with AM/FM radio and a cassette player. A CD changer and cell phone are optional in some higher-end trims.
Performance & Handling
The 1995 Mercedes-Benz S-Class didn’t earn its position as one of the top-selling luxury sedans by simply being comfortable. There’s lots of power under the hood as well, with a great performance value to go with it. While none of the S-Class’s machines, besides the S350D’s diesel engine, are great on fuel, driving this car is fun enough that most buyers who can afford such luxury probably won’t care.
The 1995 Mercedes-Benz S-Class provides front airbags for both the driver and front passenger. Traction control and electronic stability control both come standard with four-wheel anti-lock brakes. Other basic safety equipment includes an anti-theft alarm system, power door locks, and a limited slip differential.
