While the Miele S2 canister vacuum cleaners may appear to be very similar to the S4 or S5 canisters, the S2 vacuums differentiate themselves in one primary area, cost. Built to replace and combine the durable Miele Plus and S500 series vacuum cleaners, the Miele S2 vacuums retain the core features that have long made Miele vacuums a quality home appliance for over 100 years.

Miele S2 Vacuum Compact DesignLike the S7, S5 & S4 Miele vacuum cleaners, the Miele S2 vacuums feature the Miele Vortex Motor and all are HEPA capable. These features help to ensure some of the most powerful suction and filtration available on the market. Each piece is crafted and tested in Germany prior to arrival here in the U.S. Unlike other vacuums churned out in China, Korea or Mexico, Miele retains strict manufacturing and quality control standards.

The body of the S2 canister is made of durable ABS plastic and features the same three, independent, swivel casters. When comparing the four S2 vacuums, the Miele Titan is the only one that comes standard with a HEPA filter. All S2 Miele vacuums feature the large capacity, GN AirClean Dust Bag, and each are equipped with telescopic wands.

Where you begin to see the differences between these units and other Miele vacuum cleaners are with some of the "extras". In places where Miele would traditionally use two components of different colors to accent each other, with an S2 they might use one. Things like raised or embossed logos and heavier dust compartment lids are traded in for a more simplistic logo and lighter, though still ABS lid.

Miele S2 Vacuum Six Suction SettingsEach of the S2 Miele canisters come equipped with a six setting, rotary dial control. Other differences include the weight. The canister of a Miele S2 vacuum cleaner is less than 9 lbs., which is less than any other Miele canister available. This is in part because of a simplified design and reduction in some components, like additional sound dampening. So when you compare a Miele S2 vacuum cleaner to a model found in their others lines, it may be a bit louder, but it's important to keep in mind that even with an S2, the sound level is still quieter than comparable canister vacuums of other brands.

Some, like the Miele Titan and the Miele Delphi are equipped with electric hoses and wands, and come with powerbrushes for carpet cleaning. The more reasonably priced Miele Olympus comes standard with the combo floor tool and features straight suction. The next step up from this, the Miele Capri, is equipped with two floor tools, the SBB 3 for smooth flooring and the air-driven STB 205-3 for area rugs and low to medium pile carpet. The handles of these units also differ, with the most economical canister vacs, Miele Olympus and Miele Capri, coming standard with the simple ergonomic handle while the Delphi and Titan feature a deluxe ergonomic handle with push button, suction control.

Regardless of which Miele S2 canister vacuum you select, all Miele attachments and Miele accessories will fit any of these vacuum cleaners. Each is a quality canister vacuum cleaner built for the customer who is seeking Miele quality filtration and cleaning capability but cannot afford a model with more features, at a higher price.
