Opting for luxury over sport, the Mercedes-Benz S600 gets rave reviews for incorporating many of the high-end details that you'd expect from a six-figure sedan. Massaging chairs, an electronic trunk closer, and eight-way power-adjustable rear seats are just a few of the creature comforts you'll find in the S600.

But the Mercedes-Benz S600 is more than just a platform for luxury features. According to Mercedes, it's one of the safest sedans on the road thanks to a system known as Attention Assist, which continuously monitors different parameters of driving behavior and can automatically alert the driver with visual and audible warnings if it detects signs of drowsiness on long trips.

A radar-enhanced cruise control system monitors the S600 as well as nearby cars, adjusting the vehicle's speed to keep a safe driving distance. In fact, Mercedes says its Distronic Plus cruise control can bring the car to a complete stop if it senses traffic ahead and then resume driving when the traffic clears.
