What is the Largest Mercedes-Benz Sedan?

2022 mercedes-benz s-class maroon sedan


The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is the largest Mercedes-Benz Sedan—especially because the S-Class is almost always sold with an extended wheelbase in the U.S. Although we’ll take an in-depth look at the dimensions for the four most popular Mercedes-Benz sedans below, it’s worth noting from the outset that the S-Class measures 208.2 inches from end to end. The midsize E-Class has a length of 194.3 inches, while the compact C-Class comes in at 187 inches.



Mercedes-Benz Sedan Dimensions Compared

Although the S-Class is the longest Mercedes-Benz sedan by a significant margin, and it also offers the most second-row legroom by far, it isn’t necessarily the biggest Mercedes-Benz sedan in every single area. For this reason, it’s worth it to get up close and personal with the dimensions for every sedan in our lineup:

Mercedes-Benz A-Class

The A-Class is the smallest Mercedes-Benz Sedan—and that means it’s perfect for drivers who often travel solo:

  • Legroom: 41.8 inches (1st), 33.9 inches (2nd)
  • Shoulder Room: 55.1 inches (1st), 54 inches (2nd)
  • Trunk Volume: 8.6 cubic feet
  • Wheelbase: 107.4 inches
  • Length: 179.1 inches
  • Width (w/o Mirrors): 70.7 inches
  • Height: 56.9 inches

Mercedes-Benz C-Class

The compact Mercedes-Benz C-Class is sporty and stylish, and its dimensions are broadly comparable to those of the E-Class. However, it has a smaller trunk and a smaller frame:

  • Legroom: 41.7 inches (1st), 36 inches (2nd)
  • Shoulder Room: 56.3 inches (1st), 55.6 inches (2nd)
  • Trunk Volume: 11.6 cubic feet
  • Wheelbase: 112.8 inches
  • Length: 187 inches
  • Width (w/o Mirrors): 71.7 inches
  • Height: 56.6 inches

If you’re on the fence between the smaller options in this lineup, we’d be happy to help you compare the A-Class to the C-Class in more detail.

Mercedes-Benz E-Class

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class might not be the biggest Mercedes-Benz sedan, but it does have the most spacious trunk:

  • Legroom: 41.3 inches (1st), 35.8 inches (2nd)
  • Shoulder Room: 57.8 inches (1st), 56.9 inches (2nd)
  • Trunk Volume: 13.1 cubic feet
  • Wheelbase: 115.7 inches
  • Length: 194.3 inches
  • Width (w/o Mirrors): 73.7 inches
  • Height: 57.8 inches

Mercedes-Benz S-Class

As we noted from the outset, the S-Class is the largest Mercedes-Benz sedan in just about every area where it really counts:

  • Legroom: 41 inches (1st), 44 inches (2nd)
  • Shoulder Room: 59.7 inches (1st), 57.8 inches (2nd)
  • Trunk Volume: 12.9 cubic feet
  • Wheelbase: 126.6 inches
  • Length: 208.2 inches
  • Width (w/o Mirrors): 76.9 inches
  • Height: 59.2 inches

What About the EQS?

Although it isn’t quite as spacious as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the all-new EQS EV is comparable in size to the model described above. In fact, an EQS measures roughly 207.3 inches from end to end—making it less than one inch shorter than an S-Class. Check out our guide to the EQS interior to learn more.

Which Mercedes-Benz Sedan is Right for You?

Our in-depth Mercedes-Benz comparisons are perfect for the Westport-area driver who wants to know more about how these models compare in terms of pricing, performance, or standard features—but if you’re primarily interested in size, you’ll just need to keep the following points in mind:

  • Despite its small size, the A-Class has the most first-row legroom.
  • The C-Class has a little bit more second-row legroom than the larger E-Class, but the latter has a more spacious trunk.
  • Thanks to its extended wheelbase, the S-Class offers much more second-row legroom than any other Mercedes-Benz sedan in the lineup.

Choosing a larger sedan will net you a longer wheelbase—and a smoother ride on Weston and Norwalk roads. However, larger sedans are somewhat more difficult to park and maneuver when you’re out and about.
