Mercedes S-class: Closest thing yet to a self-driving car

The luxury automaker's latest top-of-the-line car can cruise down the highway almost entirely on its own.

Self-driving for less

The new S-Class is a truly remarkable car. It rides, drives -- and even smells -- like the sort of top-flight luxury car Mercedes usually produces. And the new version carries on the tradition of being a technology showcase. (We don't even have enough space here to cover everything this car can do.)

You don't have to get an S-Class to get access to all this stuff. Some of this technology, including the self-steering lane-keeping assistance, has recently become available on lower-priced models like the mid-sized E-class -- but you won't get a Hot Stone Massage.
