The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class retains its title as the undisputed leader of intelligence, power, performance and luxury. Mercedes-Benz takes another big step towards autonomous driving and takes Intelligent Drive to the next level with the elevated design of the much-loved classic, S-Class Sedan.
The unveiling of the new impressive S-Class model was held at an event on the 12th of September 2017 at the Four Seasons Hotel, Jumeirah Beach, Dubai.
“It is extremely important for us to offer only the best to our customers, and this new modernized design of the flagship model is achieving just that. We are thrilled that such an adored classic continues to renovate itself and stay ahead of the game, delivering an even more superior sense of status. With the all new ground-breaking features we are very confident that the S-Class will continue to dominate the luxury segment”, said Mr. Wassim Derbi, Marketing Manager, Gargash Enterprises.
The new flagship model has been meticulously modernized with a redesigned generation of engines along with the most intelligent assistance systems in its class. The new Mercedes-Benz S 560 boasts a new V8 engine with 469 hp and 700 Nm. The new biturbo engine is among the most economical V8 petrol engines in the world, and consumes close to 10% less fuel than its predecessor. It is the world’s first 9-speed automatic transmission with a hydrodynamic torque converter in the premium segment. The S 450 possesses an innovative 3L – V6 biturbo engine with a 367 hp and 600 Nm, an instant upgrade from its predecessor, the S 400, adding more power and efficiency to the driving experience.
The MULTIBEAM LED headlamps enable quick, precise adjustment of the driving lights to the current road and traffic conditions.
All models are fitted with a new radiator grille; and come with a driving assistance package, which is a combination of complementary safety and assistance systems that can help to relieve driver strain, reduce the risk of accidents and improve protection for both the occupants and other road users. Over ten years ago, innovations that began with PRE-SAFE® and developed into DISTRONIC PLUS led to new dimensions in driving. With the previous S-Class, comfort and safety blended into one, which Mercedes-Benz referred to as “Intelligent Drive”. Now, the new S-Class adds an additional layer of excellence by incorporating and enhancing a host of innovative driving assistance systems.
Another Mercedes-Benz hallmark is the high-quality look and feel created with the meticulous attention to detail and craftsmanship in the interior of the new S-Class. These include open-pore woods as well as leather-trimmed doors and dashboard. Key interior features include the three-spoke multifunction steering wheel. The impressive ambient lighting, with a choice of 64-colours, showcases the interior like a work of art, particularly at night. Drivers can choose from a variety of settings including ‘Glacier Blue’, ‘Red Moon’ and ‘Dawn Blue,’ which light up in conjunction with the widescreen cockpit. The wide-screen cockpit has been updated with driver assistance technology that is a touch away. The ENERGIZING comfort control is a world-first, entering series production and can be experienced in all seats. This optional feature links various comfort systems in the vehicle together. Wireless charging is available for all mobile devices that support or can be retrofitted to support the technology.
The enhanced design of the S-Class Sedan conveys an even greater sense of status and the highest level of technological expertise. A combination of the finest levels of luxury and extraordinary safety with exceptional performance, it is a car created entirely without compromise.
