A leader in the premium segment.
Among the highlights is an all-new and highly efficient engine range with a series of new technologies for electrification of the powertrain. Intelligent Drive takes another step towards autonomous driving. S-Class is the undisputed leader in the premium segment with regard to comfort and wellness sets new standards in the interior. Several new engines are planned for the new S-Class: inline six cylinders as diesel and petrol engines as well as a new V8 biturbo petrol engine. At the same time, ground-breaking technologies such as the 48-volt Integrated Starter Alternator and the electric booster compressor celebrate their world premiere.
The interior of the new S-Class.
The interior of the new S-Class is characterized by the two new high-resolution displays, each with a screen diagonal of 12.3 inches. Visually, the two displays under one shared glass cover blend into a wide-screen cockpit. As the instrument cluster, it contains a large display with virtual instruments in the direct field of vision of the driver as well as a central display above the center console. The new S-Class has touch-sensitive controls in the steering wheel. They respond to swiping motions like the screen of a smartphone and enable the driver to control the entire infotainment system without having to take their hands off the steering wheel. The operation of DISTRONIC and cruise control with control elements directly on the steering wheel is another new feature.
The top-of-the-range model of Mercedes-Benz takes another big step towards autonomous driving and elevates Intelligent Drive to the next level. DISTRONIC Active Proximity Control and Active Steer Assist now provide even more comfortable support for the driver to keep a safe distance and steer. The speed is now adjusted automatically ahead of curves or junctions. MULTIBEAM LED headlamps and ULTRA RANGE High Beam turn night into day. ROAD SURFACE SCAN, the forward-looking detection of bumps, and the curve-tilting function CURVE are further unique features of the S-Class in the segment of luxury sedans.
Refreshing exclusive interior.
From the exclusive leather upholstery to the decorative elements of fine wood – it does not get any better. In addition, the chauffeur package offers generous legroom in the rear. The optionally available ENERGIZING Comfort Control is a world-first entering series production and allows all passengers to travel relaxed. It combines comfort systems such as THERMOTRONIC, massage and fragrancing to create an inspiring wellness experience. It uses specific comfort functions as well as light and music moods and allows customers to configure a specific wellness set-up to suit their need. The programmes are visualized on the head unit with colour graphics, and backed by suitable music. ENERGIZING Comfort Control also incorporates the ambience lighting, which is harmoniously tailored to each of the individual screen designs. The light stages the interior like a work of art by composing colour worlds from different colours.
The AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine in the S 63 comes exclusively in the highest performance stage to date rated at 450 kW (612 PS). The peak torque of 900 Nm also represents a new maximum. It is available across a wide rev range between 2,750 and 4,500 rpm, and thereby provides a sense of superior poise. The sprint from nil to 100 km/h takes just 3.5 seconds, faster than in any other performance luxury sedan, and the dynamic push in the back does not end before reaching the electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (with AMG Driver’s Package: 300 km/h).
MAGIC BODY CONTROL with curve-tilting function.
The four AMG DYNAMIC SELECT driving modes, “Comfort”, “Sport”, “Sport+” and “Individual”, allow the driver to influence the characteristics of the S 63 and the S 65 extensively. In addition, the S 65 features the “Curve” driving mode, active in the speed range between 15 km/h and 180 km/h. A curve-tilting function is integrated into the MAGIC BODY CONTROL suspension of the S 65. As a result, the vehicle tilts to the inside of the turn by up to 2.65 degrees, similar to a motorcycle rider. This reduces the perceived lateral forces and increases the ride quality.
