Mercedes Benz recently launched their S Class Sedan in India on June 17. The Mercedes S Class series has always been a top product, which is why the new S Class Sedan has been in the news much before its release. It was even voted the 2021 World Luxury Car of the Year.
With a few new tweaks, the new S Class Sedan has a more luxurious look and feel. The bonnet is longer than its predecessor. The LED headlamps come with new digital light technology. The highlight of the model, however, is the LED taillight design, which is horizontally positioned, a first for the luxury sedan.
The S-Class comes with recliner seats that have an electric adjustment for the outer seats. Rear seat passengers can adjust the leg-rest and massage function electronically as well. The chauffeur package adds co-driver seat adjustment from the rear along with rear-seat entertainment touchscreens and a central tablet controller for various in-car functions.
The new S-Class is available in two options – S500 and S580. Powered by a 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine, the S500 comes with an integrated 48V mild-hybrid motor that produces 430bhp and 530Nm of torque. On the other hand, the S580 comes with a twin-turbo V8 engine that will generate 470bhp and 700Nm of torque.
A 12.8-inch portrait-oriented touchscreen infotainment system accompanied by a 12.3-inch digital instrument display dominates the interior. The new OLED touchscreen runs the latest Mercedes MBUX system (NTG7) and supports features like facial, voice and fingerprint recognition. The latest MBUX system makes its way into the sedan while there is 320GB of storage and 16GB of RAM.
Available in five colour choices including White, Black, Blue, Red and Green, the S-Class costs Rs2.17 crore for the diesel and Rs2.19 crore for the petrol model (ex-showroom prices).
