Exclusivity Perfected

Mercedes-Benz’s new S-Class sets itself a simple if somewhat daunting brief: to make the best car in the world

Mercedes-Benz new S-Class AMG line

All new S-Class models are fitted with a new radiator grille with three twin louvres as well as vertical strips in high-gloss black finish. The saloon with V-12 engine is fitted with additional chrome-finish vertical strips in the radiator grille. The front bumper with pronounced air intakes and sporty looks is also new. The new LED lamps with crystal-look tail lamps stand out at the rear. They look like jewels and ensure a characteristic design day and night. A tail lamp light shows that plays when the vehicle is unlocked and locked.

All models are fitted with a redesigned lower bumper section with integrated visible tailpipe trim. The tailpipes are framed by a chrome trim element, which spans the entire width of the vehicle.

The interior of the new S-Class is characterised by the two new high-resolution displays, each with a screen diagonal of 12.3 inches. Visually, the two displays under one shared glass cover blend into a wide-screen cockpit and as a central element consequently emphasise the horizontal orientation of the interior design.

Like the instrument cluster, this wide-screen cockpit contains a large display with virtual instruments in the direct field of vision of the driver, as well as a central display above the centre console. Because the cockpit is fully digital, the driver can choose from three different display styles ("Classic", "Sporty" and "Progressive“) and also configure the information and views relevant to them at will.
