Mercedes-Benz intend to usher in a new era of driving with the S-Class, a vehicle which provides utmost comfort as well as awe-inspiring style. Every element of the S-Class has been designed for both high performance and refined opulence, with only the most high-tech infotainment options and the very highest quality materials used in the car’s construction. Mercedes-Benz has loaded the S-Class with a number of features not yet seen in any production model, including a suspension system which has the capability of working out any road imperfections, and 360-degree vision sensors to capture the vehicle's surroundings.
The aim of the S-Class, as stated by Mercedes-Benz, is to fully combine the philosophies of work and play. By blending these boundaries, the S-Class creates an internal environment that is as sophisticated as it is comfortable. Smooth lines run up and down the sides of the S-Class, expressing the full luxury contained within. The characteristic Mercedes-Benz grille sits between the front headlights, which make use of new beam technology for both safety and illumination purposes.
Within, the S-Class holds a number of surprises for even the most seasoned driver. Luxury automatic climate control is provided as standard, and the new Air-Balance Package gives out pleasing fragrances to fully take advantage of the power of ambient effects. Smooth wood trim and soft leather upholstery make up the interior of the cabin, and mood lighting can also be personally controlled. Multimedia functions come through the COMAND Online system, which combines satellite navigation, telephone, audio, video, and the internet. These are all controlled through the 12.3-inch colour touchscreen, and the car has a 10gb hard drive for superior music storage.
A minimal amount of drag ensures maximal performance and fuel efficiency – but the car’s enviable aerodynamic qualities would count for nothing without the range of magnificent engines available with the S-Class. The S350 BlueTEC V6 diesel unit, for example, returns combined fuel economy of 45.6mpg and CO2 output of just 164g/km. The S400 hybrid engine offers similar figures for drivers focused on environmental concerns. The best option for the most enthusiastic drivers, on the other hand, is the S500L V12 petrol engine. With its 530hp and maximum torque of 830Nm, it can thrust this large vehicle from a standing start to 62mph in just 4.6 seconds.
Many driver safety systems are included as standard. The Pre-Safe anticipatory safety system takes anticipatory measures to protect the driver and passengers if a probable accident situation is detected. Eight airbags are fitted as standard, with front and sidebags for driver and front passenger, and two windowbags and two rear sidebags. There is also the option of fitting an inflatable belt bag, which provides additional rib cage protection.
