The new S-Class Coupé. Gran performer.
One look says it all.
If you experienced the premiere of the S-Class Coupé towards the end of 2013, you will know how the grace and beauty of a car can entrance its beholder. The design of the Concept S-Class Coupé, with its sensuous clarity and sporty, classic proportions, is almost unchanged in the new series-production S-Class Coupé. The two-door car is given its sensuous nature with the aid of convex and concave surfaces. Its sculptured appearance gives it classic elegance which forms a perfect symbiosis with its modern, progressive design idiom. And who could resist the confident look of the LED high performance headlamps under the iconic ‘eyebrow’ daytime driving lights?
In combination with the standard LED Intelligent Light System, unique front headlamps, each with 47 Swarovski crystals, are also optionally available.
The avant-garde design idiom is continued in the interior of the new S-Class Coupé. The impressive dashboard of the S-Class Coupé with its spectacular architecture creates a unique character in the upper coupé segment. Sumptuous look and feel, high manufacturing quality, and outstanding comfort all go to stimulate the occupants' senses in such a way that the interior provides the utmost in 'modern luxury'.
The S 500 4MATIC Coupé boasts a panorama roof stretching over two-thirds of the total roof area. Its transparency can be adjusted using MAGIC SKY CONTROL as an optional feature.
As in a jet, the optional head-up display projects important information directly into the driver’s field of vision in the windscreen, thus ensuring less distraction from the road and traffic. The system informs the driver about speed, speed limits, navigation instructions and driving assistance systems. The optional touchpad with its high-gloss black surface and a chrome-optic rim is located in front of the armrest. As with a smartphone, all the functions of the head unit can be operated by means of fingertip gestures on the touchpad.
The touchpad also allows you to enter handwritten letters, numbers and special characters, in all of the head unit's languages.
The interior can be made even more comfortable at the customer's individual request: the AIR BALANCE package with its perfume atomiser and ioniser functions is available, as is electric armrest heating as part of the Warmth Comfort package. The special features of the Seat Comfort package include an ENERGIZING hot stone massage function for the front seats.
And occupants' ears can enjoy luxury too: the Burmester® surround sound system and the Burmester® high end 3D surround sound system were developed to please discerning listeners.
Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive.
Like the S-Class Saloon, the new Coupé is available with assistance systems to help make driving safer and more comfortable. The “Intelligent Drive” systems include the PRE-SAFE® Brake with pedestrian detection feature, DISTRONIC PLUS with Steering Assist and Stop&Go Pilot, BAS PLUS Brake Assist with Cross-Traffic Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Highbeam Assist, and Night View Assist Plus. The PRE-SAFE® preventive passenger protection system has been also extended to PRE-SAFE® PLUS.
PRE-SAFE® PLUS can detect an impending rear collision and warn following vehicles by switching on the hazard warning lights at high frequency.
Less lateral force, better lean-over in bends.
MAGIC BODY CONTROL, the first seeing suspension, had its world premiere in the S-Class. Now the Coupé follows with the curve tilting function, another world innovation for series-production cars. With its help, the Coupé leans into bends similarly to the way a skier or a motorcyclist does. The lateral forces operating on the occupants are reduced, in a similar way to driving in a steep curve, and the passengers remain more firmly in their seats. Particularly on country roads, this new curve tilting function provides increased driving pleasure and comfort.
The aim is not faster cornering, but a more pleasant driving experience. With the new S-Class Coupé and its innovations, Mercedes-Benz is uninterruptedly continuing the tradition of the great coupés.
