With every new generation, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class takes comfort, safety and the overall driver and passenger experience to a completely new level, setting new standards not only for the brand, but for the industry as a whole. The all-new flagship of the Mercedes-Benz model range is no exception, representing a seamless combination of luxurious form and intelligent function thoughtfully executed down to the smallest detail. The S-Class consistently embodies the brand’s very best thinking, with human-centered innovations supported by 135 years of automotive expertise, delivering unparalleled levels of comfort, refinement and tailored craftsmanship. The all-new, highly anticipated Mercedes-Benz S- Class Sedan will start from $109,800 (INR 80.7 lakh) and will arrive in U.S. dealerships in the first half of 2021.
In order to streamline the packaging structures, the new-generation Mercedes-Benz S-Class Sedan will be offered in three highly-equipped, strategically curated trim lines for the U.S. market to meet the needs of even the most discerning customers: Luxury Line, AMG Line and the Executive Line (available exclusively on the S 580 Sedan). Each trim line showcases myriad innovative technologies and luxurious features beyond the generous, enhanced standard features, along with extensive customization options and appointments.
Standard-equipped technology highlights in the modern and progressive interior include a 12.8″ OLED multimedia touchscreen display in the center console and the potential for up to five screens to conveniently meet the needs of the driver and passengers alike. The new S-Class also debuts the second generation of the sophisticated, learning-capable MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) infotainment system with advanced Voice Control and 50% more processing power compared to the previous MBUX system. Individual MBUX profiles can be activated by biometric authentication via fingerprint sensor, voice control or facial recognition.
The interior also showcases all-new technology such as Active Ambient Lighting that uses advanced LED technology to enhance the in-car experience by visually supporting the driver assistance systems or by flashing to identify the current speaker when interacting with MBUX.
The entire suite of enhanced active and passive driver assistance systems are included as standard on the new S-Class, including a 360-Degree Surround View Camera with a new 3D View Assist feature that allows the driver to easily and conveniently park, unpark and negotiate tight spaces. The vehicle can autonomously maintain its speed and the distance to the traffic in front as well as stay in its lane on multi-lane roads, and reduce the vehicle speed according to the traffic situation. The extensive driver assistance systems, as well as the sophisticated crash sensor systems, enable PRE-SAFE® to recognize a likely impact in even more situations than before, ensuring that the S-Class upholds the highest levels of safety and sophistication.
An available Augmented Reality Head-up Display system further supplements the functionality of MBUX, navigation and the driver assistance systems by generating and projecting images directly in the driver’s field of vision. The new available 3D driver display provides a comprehensive view of the vehicle’s surroundings and enhances the ATTENTION ASSIST functionality with a miscrosleep warning that uses an infrared interior camera to register characteristics and movements in order to detect driver distraction and drowsiness.
The exterior of the S-Class showcases a new iteration of puristic design that combines sensuous and classic aesthetics with its stretched hood, C-Pillar that flows into the sculpted shoulder, dynamically designed rear window and new seamless door handles.
The S-Class also boasts generous space and thoughtful interior elements including rapid-heating and ventilating, active multicontour front seats with enhanced massage and comfort headrests, powered side rear sunshades, wireless smartphone integration and wireless charging in the front, toll gate transponder, soft close doors and air balance cabin fragrance system. S-Class customers can now choose from 10 massage programs with two levels of intensity and in duration ranging from 8-18 minutes.
Additional revolutionary innovations making their debut in the new S-Class are the all-new 4D Surround Sound system, rear seat airbags and rear axle steering.
The Burmester® 4D surround sound system includes 30 speakers and eight resonators. Two resonators are integrated into the backrest of each seat. Direct reproduction of the sound resonance in the seats adds another level to the three- dimensional listening experience: 4D sound. The perceived intensity of the sound can be individually adjusted for each seat. In addition to music reproduction, the 4D sound is also used to create an even more emotional function of the available ENERGIZING Comfort system. Two amplifiers deliver a total output of 1,750 watts of power and 37 separately processed output channels.
The all-new available rear seat airbag can considerably reduce the impact on the head and neck area of the seat-belt-wearing occupants in the outer rear seats in the event of a frontal collision. The frontal airbag for the rear seat deploys particularly gently thanks to its innovative construction using a tubular structure.
Rear-axle steering is also now available with a steering angle of up to 10° that helps to improve maneuverability on narrow city streets and at low speeds to the level of a compact car. For the S-Class with a long wheelbase and all-wheel drive, the turning circle is reduced by 6.2 feet to under 35.8 feet.
The S-Class model range also includes a new lineup of turbocharged engines with EQ Boost and 48-volt technology that boast effortless and efficient power. The systematically electrified six-cylinder in-line engine in the new Mercedes-Benz S 500 4MATIC has an output of 429 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque and the electrified V8 biturbo engine in the new Mercedes-Benz S 580 4MATIC has an output of 496 hp and 516 lb-ft. Both vehicles are equipped with an EQ Boost integrated starter generator, which provides a further 184 lb-ft of torque as well as up to an additional 21 hp for short periods for smooth acceleration and power delivery.
The launch of every new S-Class represents an important milestone for Mercedes- Benz and this next generation S-Class is poised to take comfort, safety and the overall driver and passenger experience to a completely new level. The 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Sedan will arrive at U.S. dealerships in the first half of 2021.
