Every mountain range has its pinnacle. Every sport, its champion. Every breakthrough, its inventor. In the history of the automobile, one car makes history time and again, not just by raising the standard, but advancing it in ways you never imagined possible.
Today's S-Class previews the future of driving. It can change lanes with a tap of your finger. Slow itself for a tollboth or exit. Turn a traffic jam into easy street. And watch out for danger ahead, even when it's coming from behind.
Available MAGIC BODY CONTROL is the world's first proactive suspension that scans the road ahead with a stereo camera. It can generate forces to counteract bumps and dips as you reach them, not after. It can even lean into curves like a slaloming skier.
The car that pioneered 100% LED lighting throughout the vehicle adapts its brilliant active LED headlamps to curves and vehicles ahead of you. Ultra Wide Beam technology helps the high beams illuminate the roadsides better, too.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto expand your choices in entertainment and navigation. Their unique interfaces work like your phone because they integrate with it, even its voice controls. Wireless charging is also available, front and rear.
To set the benchmark for luxury sedans, the S-Class cabin is sculpted, sewn, appointed and equipped not just to provide unmatched comfort and convenience, but to stimulate and soothe your senses. Especially your sense of contentment.
Majestic in presence, poised on the move, the S-Class is at once athletic and elegant. From its double-bar grille to its "Stardust" taillamps, every detail advances two deep traditions: groundbreaking innovation wrapped in trendsetting style.
Available ENERGIZING Comfort can rejuvenate your senses with a symphony of climate comfort, fragrance, massage, lighting and music. Enhanced ambient cabin lighting lets you choose from 64 colors in a variety of themes and zones
Two smartphone-like pads access nearly all the car's features directly from the steering wheel. Scroll, swipe and select from the central screen with your right thumb, and the screen between the gauges with your left.
The S-Class is more than motivated, it's motivational. Biturbo power raises efficiency, and your pulse. And its advanced, adaptive and highly adept chassis and drivetrains are engineered for an ideal balance of composure and confidence.
Advanced engines respond with millisecond speed and molecular precision to keep performance and efficiency at their peak. A 362-hp 3.0L biturbo V6 powers the S 450 and plug-in hybrid S 560e. Gas-only S 560 models are roused by a 463-hp 4.0L biturbo V8.
Swift, smooth and versatile, the 9G-TRONIC transmission offers quick takeoffs, quiet cruising, and seamless acceleration in between. Shift paddles on the steering wheel keep sporty control of its nine speeds at your fingertips.
Standard AIRMATIC® air suspension balances pure comfort with cornering precision. It can self-level for changing loads, adapt to challenging roads, and let you select modes to coddle your passengers or indulge your sporting desires.
The plug-in S 560e blends sumptuous and sensible like never before. A biturbo V6, 90kW electric motor and compact lithium-ion battery team up for a combined 469 hp. Radar helps it recoup energy as you brake. GPS map data can better its highway efficiency and in-town range, even when you're not navigating. Its gas pedal can even help you drive smarter, sometimes using no gas at all
