Automotive luxury experienced in a completely new way

As the epitome of luxury, the new S-Class continues to break new ground in luxury, technology and automotive excellence.

Here’s 3 reasons why it offers a ‘next level’ driving experience (there are thousands more)

No other innovation in recent years has so radically changed the operation of a Mercedes-Benz as MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience). The second generation now débuts in the new S-Class with a vehicle interior that is even more digital and intelligent. Featuring three large screens, the control and comfort of the vehicle have been further enhanced and the possibility for personalisation and intuitive operation have become far more extensive. For example, the new 3D driver display allows a spatial view at the touch of a button for the very first time. A real 3D effect without the glasses.

Modern luxury reaches new heights in the interior. The designers have created a feel-good ambience with lounge character marked by elegance, high quality and lightness. The dashboard with its new architecture, modern surface design and ergonomic display arrangement is a particular highlight. But the feel-good aspect goes even deeper: With high ride quality and low noise levels as well as an extensive range of ENERGIZING Comfort programmes, the S-Class looks after the well-being of its passengers. They also stay fit thanks to the effective air filtering system, which signals its newly gained capability with the new name ENERGIZING Air Control.

Safety innovations abound in this new generation. MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) is joined by innovations that increase driving enjoyment while making driving even safer: among them are rear-axle steering with a large steering angle and safety innovations such as the rear airbag. Following further development, the driving assistance systems offer another step towards autonomous driving. Thanks to improved environmental sensors, for example, the parking systems give the driver even better support when manoeuvring at low speed and the integration into MBUX means that the level of visualisation has now entered a whole new dimension.

  • The new tool used to micro-perforate the seats operates with 16,000 needles.

  • The loyalty rate for the S-Class is especially high. Some 80 percent of S-Class customers in Western Europe go on to choose another vehicle from Mercedes-Benz. In the US, more than 70 percent do so.

  • More than one third of all saloons of the last generation of the S-Class (model series 222; début 2013) went to China. S-Class customers in China are the youngest with an average age of 40 years.

  • Around the world the S-Class Saloon is predominantly sold in the long wheelbase version: around 9 out of 10 customers opt for the long version of the S-Class Saloon. All in all, since the launch of the generation that is now in its runout phase, more than 500,000 S-Class Saloons have been sold. Now on sale…
