On the road with the new S-Class in Canada.
The interior of the new S-Class combines extremely high, craftsman-like quality with innovative appointment details. If desired, the AIR-BALANCE package comprising perfuming, ionisation and air filtering, or the ENERGIZING massage function on the hot-stone principle can ensure a very special feel-good atmosphere. Apart from the extended ambient lighting in seven colours, additional new forms of individualisation are possible: numerous leather upholstery versions and trim parts as well as new seat variants are available to choose from.
Along with the Seat Comfort packages, including active multicontour seats, further options like the Chauffeur package, the First-Class rear suite including Business console, and retractable folding tables are available. Equipped this way the new S-Class transforms into a mobile office or a centre of well-being.
Two high-resolution 12.3-inch TFT colour displays provide all information of relevance to the driver and serve the convenient control of infotainment and comfort functions. COMAND Online has been supplemented by the Live Traffic Information service, which transmits traffic data in real time.
As a special highlight the new S-Class can be ordered with the Burmester® high-end 3D surround sound system.
Unique driving experience.
The standard-fit AIRMATIC air suspension including Adaptive Damping System ADS PLUS is already the pinnacle of safety, comfort and dynamics. Mercedes-Benz celebrates a world first with MAGIC BODY CONTROL – the first suspension system with “eyes”. The integral ROAD SURFACE SCAN detects unevenness in the road ahead with the aid of a stereo camera, and instantaneously sets up the suspension to deal with it. With innovative protective systems, numerous new assistance systems and systems with greatly enhanced functions, such as DISTRONIC PLUS with Steering Assist and Stop&Go Pilot or the Night View Assist Plus, combined under the heading Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive, the new S-Class carries the integrated “Real Life Safety” strategy forward.
Whether hybrid, petrol or diesel model – all engines of the new S-Class are leaders in efficiency in their class. Compared with the outgoing generation, consumption could be reduced by as much as 20 percent and the weight by as much as 95 kilograms owing to consistent lightweight design, including an aluminium hybrid bodyshell.
And so the new S-Class is both rationally convincing and emotionally fascinating.
