As the flagship model for Mercedes-Benz, the S-Class has a lot of expectations to live up to. Not only does it consistently meet those expectations, it exceeds them. With its sleek, elegant and iconic design – which has been described as majestic on more than one occasion – and always-impressive engines under its hoods, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class has become a true icon of the automotive industry. Knowing that, it could just rest on its laurels. But that’s now how Mercedes-Benz rolls with its S-Class. Instead, the model is routinely upgraded and updated each year to keep it modern, fresh and ahead of its class. This includes keeping the S-Class packed to the brim with the latest and most advanced technology and safety features and interior comfort amenities that make describing the Mercedes-Benz S-Class as luxurious an understatement. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class isn’t just a vehicle. It’s not even enough to describe it as an experience like no other. It’s a way of life.
If you’re going to use this kind of verbiage to describe a vehicle, it better be able to back it up. Well, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class has no problem in that department. You need only look under the hood to see why. Its 4.7-liter V8 Biturbo engine is capable of providing 449 horsepower and 516 lb-ft. of torque while still getting 17 miles per gallon in the city and 26 miles per gallon on the highway. And its advanced suspension system makes for one of the smoothest rides around.
With technology and entertainment features like those found in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, there’s really no reason to ever leave your car. Its dual 12.3-inch high resolution screens provide the clarity of analog instruments along with lifelike animated displays of your vehicle settings and driving, entertainment and navigation systems. And with a premier high-end audio system and multiple music options, you’ll never have to drive in silence. Nor will you want to.
Those 12.3-inch screens aren’t just there for entertainment and navigation purposes. They play an important role in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class’s safety systems as well. Its cameras keep an eye on the area around the entire vehicle to spot hazards in your path and display them right between your speedometer and tachometer so you know what you need to watch out for while driving. A bevy of other driver assistance features also work to keep you safe out on the road.
