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

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

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
Regardless of which Miele S2 canister vacuum you select, all Miele attachments

capability but cannot afford a model with more features, at a higher price.
