Mercedes-Benz S-Class

Mercedes-Benz has launched the latest version of the centrepiece to their brand. As always the S-Class is distinguished by elegance, the highest degree of quality and technology packaged in a manner that takes luxury to a new level.

The S-Class is, and has always been, the pride of its engineers, designers and craftspeople and the new S-Class lights the way forward as it delivers the latest technology and extreme beauty in a spectacular fashion.

Classic sedan styling

The S-Class retains its short front overhang, long wheelbase and balanced rear overhang, as it remains a classical sedan with perfect proportions. A wide track and flush-mounted wheels ensure a muscular look while the character lines along the sides have been significantly reduced. A high-status radiator grille adds to the overall stature. The head and taillights contain the most phenomenally complex illumination technology available on the market today.

Inside story

Inside sees the fitment of the latest MBUX operating system in conjunction with a 12.8-inch OLED central display and a 12.3-inch digital driver display. Luxury features include retractable handles, a Burmeister 4D surround sound system and Keyless-Go.

The digital drivers display features 3D imaging that offers three-dimensional representation of other road users and pronounced depth and shade effects.

The interior overhead control panel and learning algorithms make use of internal cameras to assist in recognising and anticipating the wishes and intentions of its occupants, by interpreting hand gestures and head direction and responding with the corresponding vehicle functions.

Model line up

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has initially been launched with two models. The S350d is fitted with a 3.0-litre, six-cylinder, diesel engine that produces 210kW and 600Nm.

The S500 4Matic features a 3.0-litre, six-cylinder petrol engine coupled to a 48V hybrid system. This model is capable of producing a combined output of 336kW and 770Nm.
