The New S-Class saloon

The enhanced design of the S-Class conveys an even greater sense of status and the highest level of technological expertise. One example of this is the MULTIBEAM LED headlamps, whose ULTRA RANGE Highbeam produces the maximum legally permitted light intensity and only falls short of the reference value at more than 650 metres. An impressive feature in the interior is the ambient lighting in 64 colours and different colour schemes. The ENERGIZING comfort control links together various comfort systems in the vehicle, such as THERMOTRONIC, massage or fragrancing functions, to enhance the sense of well-being and alertness during the journey. This makes the S-Class an oasis of wellness on wheels.


The New S-Class saloon
Standard equipment: KEYLESS-GO Comfort package, COMAND Online system, MAGIC VISION CONTROL, Ambient lighting – choice of 64 colour settings, Front Seat Memory package, MULTIBEAM LED with ULTRA RANGE Highbeam.


Delicately drawn lines and distinctive details lend the new S-Class Saloon even more presence without ever being obtrusive. The new S-Class Saloon also looks impressive from the side. The elegant dome-shaped roofline creates space and superiority. The bumpers have a sporty design. Integrated tailpipe trim (not available on the AMG Line) and LED rear lamp clusters with tail lamps in a classy crystal look shine at the rear.


Design is also what you don’t see. When elements seem to hover in space. The occupants will get out more relaxed and focused than when they got in. That is the unique promise of comfort in an S-Class. The centre console is the all-rounder in the new S-Class Saloon. It acts as a practical stowage facility and as a command centre for the wide range of functions.
