The S-Class is the centrepiece of the brand:
The S-Class stands for the fascination of Mercedes-Benz brand, blending legendary engineering expertise with a heritage of craftsmanship that meets progressive digital innovation. The S-Class combines artificial intelligence with the experience gained from 135 years of automobile engineering. Mercedes-Benz laid the foundation for this model series with the ‘Model 220’ (W 187), with which it reoccupied the luxury class segment in 1951. Since its market launch in 1951, more than 4 million S-Class Saloons have been delivered to customers around the world. The designation “S-Class” was officially introduced with the 116 model series in 1972. The new designation went hand in hand with a host of innovations that set new standards in terms of safety and comfort.
Reimagining automotive luxury:
The new S-Class can be experienced with your senses – seeing, feeling, hearing and smelling – while offering numerous innovations in the areas of driver assistance, protection and interaction. The new S-Class utilizes digitization to create a car that responds empathetically to the needs and wishes of its driver and passengers.

The interior of the vehicle is more digital and intelligent featuring five large displays with OLED technology. MBUX now offer enhanced personalization options and intuitive operation. The voice assistant “Hey Mercedes” is even more advanced and dialogue-capable through activation of online services in the Mercedes me App. Moreover, certain actions can be performed even without the activation keyword “Hey Mercedes”.
Interior design: generous ambience with a lounge-like feeling
The new S-Class has now evolved into a refuge while travelling between the home and workplace. Nearly all comfort-related dimensions of the S-Class have been improved in the front as well as on the rear seats. The sense of space is accordingly generous. The sculptured look of the dashboard, centre console and armrests appears to float above an expansive interior landscape.
Seats: Plenty of high-tech for outstanding long-distance comfort
The seats invite the occupants to sit down and relax. Up to 19 motors in the front seats makes it easier for passengers to find a comfortable seating position. The seats also offers ten different massage programs. They use vibration motors and can enhance the effect of a relaxing massage.
Driver assistance systems: even more support for the drive
With the new S-Class, Mercedes-Benz takes another step closer to its vision of accident-free driving. The driver is supported by numerous new or extended driving assistance systems. When a dangerous situation is detected, the assistance systems are able to respond to impending collisions as the situation demands. With improved environmental sensors, the parking systems provide the driver increased support when manoeuvring at low speed.
Exterior design: Modern luxury in its most desirable form
The S-Class is seen as a trendsetter in its segment. The new generation continues this tradition. With a short front overhang, a long wheelbase and a balanced rear overhang, the S-Class is designed as a classical sedan with perfect proportions. The limousine is also one of the world’s most aerodynamic cars, specifically in the luxury sedan segment, with a Cd of 0.22.
