The 2016, 2015 & 2012 Mercedes-Benz S-Class model years are currently the best values.

On average, expect to pay only 58% of the original cost with 75% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2016 S-Class. That gives it a Net Used Value® score of 17.39 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2015 & 2012 S-Class model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.
