Every mountain range has its pinnacle. Every sport, its champion. Every breakthrough, its inventor. In the history of the automobile, one car makes history time and again, not just by raising the standard, but advancing it in ways you never imagined possible.
Anticipates the road ahead. And paves it for other cars.
Today’s S-Class previews the future of driving. It can change lanes with a tap of your finger. Slow itself for a tollbooth or exit. Turn a traffic jam into easy street. And watch out for danger ahead, even when it’s coming from behind.*****
Beacon of inspiration. Beams of intelligence.
The first car with 100% LED lighting takes its active LED headlamps to new heights, adapting its brilliaince to curves and other cars. New Ultra Wide Beam technology takes high beams to new widths, too, to better illuminate the roadsides.
In tune with your desires. And your devices.
Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto offer new choices in entertainment and navigation. Their unique interfaces work like your phone because they integrate with it, even its voice controls. Wireless charging is also available, front and rear.***
To set the benchmark for luxury sedans, the S-Class cabin is sculpted, sewn, appointed and equipped not just to provide unmatched comfort and convenience, but to stimulate and soothe your senses. Especially your sense of contentment.
Distinctive new body lines. A bloodline of distinction.
Majestic in presence, poised on the move, the S-Class is at once athletic and elegant. From its double-bar grille to its new “Stardust” tail lamps, every detail advances two deep traditions: groundbreaking innovation wrapped in trendsetting style.
The new state of the art. For a new state of mind.
Industry-first Energizing Comfort Control can rejuvenate your senses with a symphony of climate comfort, fragrance, massage, lighting and music. Enhanced ambient cabin lighting lets you choose from 64 colours in a variety of themes and zones.**
A wide world of information. In a panoramic panel.
Dual 12.3-inch widescreens are set side-by-side in a seamless floating frame. Each screen, a reconfigurable instrument panel and a central screen for entertainment, navigation and more, delivers a wealth of knowledge with instant clarity.******
Touch Control Buttons: “All thumbs” will never mean the same thing again.
Two smartphone-like pads access nearly all the car’s features directly from the steering wheel. Scroll, swipe and select from the central screen with your right thumb, and the screen between the gauges with your left.
The S-Class is more than motivated, it’s motivational. New powerplants raise efficiency, and your pulse. And its advanced, adaptive and highly adept chassis and drivetrains are engineered for an ideal balance of composure and confidence.
A new pair of engines, each with a pair of turbos.
Two new engines respond with millisecond speed and molecular precision to keep performance and efficiency at their peak. A 3.0L biturbo V6 endows the S 450 with 362 hp. The new S 560 models are roused by a 463-hp 4.0L biturbo V8.
A new 9-speed, for a wider range of talents.
Swifter, smoother and more versatile, the new 9G-TRONIC transmission offers quicker takeoffs, quieter cruising, and more seamless acceleration in between. Shift paddles on the steering wheel keep sporty control at your fingertips.
Rides on air, corners more like it’s on rails.
Standard AIRMATIC air suspension balances pure comfort with cornering precision. It can self-level for changing loads, adapt to challenging roads, and let you select modes to coddle your passengers or indulge your sporting desires.
Turns slip into grip, and grip into go.
Standard on every S 450 and S 560 Sedan, 4MATIC all-wheel drive continually sends torque to the wheels that can use it best. Lightweight, nimble and efficient, 4MATIC enhances handling and performance in any season.****
**Some features of Energizing Comfort Control may be optional.
***Apple CarPlay™ is a product of Apple Inc. Android Auto is a product of Google Inc. Device and app providers’ terms and privacy statements apply. Requires connected compatible device and data plan. Apps, content and features are selected solely by their providers. Connection to apps and streaming services may be limited by the device’s network connection. Data usage is routed through device and subject to fees, charges and restrictions in user’s wireless plan. Vehicle’s factory audio/information interface, including COMAND® navigation and the apps of Mercedes-Benz mbrace,® may not be used simultaneously with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. When Apple CarPlay or Android Auto is in use, the steering-wheel voice control button accesses Siri® or Google voice recognition software for voice commands.
Wireless charging available only for devices with compatible technology and size. See Operator’s Manual for more information. Devices sold separately.
****No system, regardless of how advanced, can overcome the laws of physics or correct careless driving. Please always wear your seat belt. Performance is limited by available traction, which snow, ice and other conditions can affect. Always drive carefully, consistent with conditions. Best performance in snow is obtained with winter tires.
*****Some systems are optional. Even the most advanced safety systems may not be sufficient to avoid an accident. It is the driver’s responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for system alerts before braking or taking evasive action, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance. See Operator’s Manual for system’s operating speeds and additional information and warnings.
******While the navigation system provides directional assistance, the driver must remain focused on safe driving behavior, including paying attention to traffic and street signs. The driver should utilize the system’s audio cues while driving and should only consult the map or visual displays once the vehicle has been stopped in a safe place. Maps do not cover all areas or all routes within an area.
