Mercedes-Benz S-Class Sedan

In the photo gallery we have prepared for you, you can find images with the all-new Mercedes-Benz S-Class. It is better if you take a look at them first so that you understand better what we are saying next in the article. We are mote that sure that this model will have a very powerful influence on the luxury segment starting now and probably until 2020 when a new model will replace it. Maybe this does not come as a surprise, but the car comes with electronic gadgets. It has a great design and also perfect proportions which are being highlighted thanks to the deep side creases. We have to admit that this is a very different car in comparison to the one it replaces and it feels even more premium than the outgoing model that is still considerate a class leader from many points of view even today.

Some of the new elements include the headlights that have a strange shape which make the car look more aerodynamic. The specialists have offered 14 mm of extra legroom for the rear occupants. On the inside it looks like a Bentley and has a lot of visible buttons and most of the functions are very easy to control using a central rotary knob. On the steering wheel, we can only find two columns and a limited number of buttons. Another strange element is the heated armrests which in the future will become a standard element for sure. The model also features a camera system that monitors the road, pre-adjusting the suspension.

The rear seatbelts are inflatable, so now, passengers will strap themselves into a bag and will not have to wait to cushion the impact with anything hard. The engines that will be available for the European models are: the S400 Hybrid, S500, S350 BlueTec and S300 BlueTec Hybrid. The first two are gasoline units capable of generating 302 horsepower and 20 kW with the electric motor and 448 horsepower respectively enabling the car to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 4.8 seconds. The last one is a 2.1-liter 4-cylinder unit that enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 7.6 seconds.
