Sales launch of further S-Class models: The new S-Class Saloon family is growing  Stuttgart/Affalterbach. With the first of the new S-C lass vehicles (available to order since May) already on their way to European dealerships, sales of further models are now beginning. These will take the new S-Class Saloon family to a total of 24 models. Buyers have a choice of nine petrol and diesel engines, rear wheel drive and 4MATIC, short and long wheelbase, and models branded Mercedes-Benz, Mercedes-AMG and Mercedes-Maybach. The latest models, which are now available to order, will arrive in dealerships in October.

The new, systematically electrified in-line six-cylinder comes to the starting line in two output levels. In the S 450 (also as 4MATIC; fuel consumption combined: 7.0-6.6 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 159-150 g/km) an output of 270 kW (367 hp) and 500 Nm of torque are available. The S 500 (fuel consumption combined: 6.6 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 150 g/km) delivers 320 kW (435 hp) and offers 520 Nm. The 49-volt integral starter/alternator is quickly able to provide a further 250 Nm of torque and 16 kW of output. Compared with the similarly powerful S 500 predecessor with a V8 engine, it has been possible to reduce the CO2 emissions of the engine by around 22 percent.

The significant power increase of the six-cylinder petrol engines to the level of the previous eight-cylinder units is also reflected in the model designations: The new six-cylinder models are therefore positioned as the S 450 and S 500.

The top-of-the-line Mercedes-Benz is the S 600 (fuel consumption combined: 11.6 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 270 g/km). Its V12 setup delivers 390 kW (530 hp) and 830 Nm. The new twelve-cylinder engine in the Mercedes-Maybach S 650 delivers 463 kW (630 hp) and offers a maximum torque of 1000 Nm (fuel consumption combined: 12.7 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 289 g/km). The spearhead of the S-Class remains the Mercedes-AMG S 65 with its high-torque 6.0-l itre V12 biturbo engine with 463 kW (630 hp) and 1000 Nm (fuel consumption combined: 11.9 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 279 g/km).

A new addition to the price list: the dynamics-oriented suspension system MAGIC BODY CONTROL. It detects and smooths out unevenness in the road ahead. In the new S-Class this suspension control has been further improved: the system's new stereo camera works at speeds of up to 180 km/h. The S-Class Saloon's curve inclination function is another comfort enhancement available for the first time. The body tilts to the inside of the bend by up to 2.65 degrees, thereby reducing the lateral forces acting on the passengers. MAGIC BODY CONTROL with curve inclination function is standard equipment for the Mercedes-Benz S 600, Mercedes-Maybach S 650 and Mercedes-AMG S 65 and available as an option for the S 560 with short or long wheelbase and for the Mercedes-Maybach S 560 (5355 euros).

All S-Class models feature the latest-generation COMAND Online infotainment system as standard. Films on Blu-ray or DVD, TV, internet, video games, music – the Individual Entertainment System in the rear (3213.00 euros) lets passengers in the rear of the vehicle put together their own personal entertainment programme. In combination with high-quality wireless headphones (optional, one set of headphones: 119.00 euros, two sets of headphones: 238.00 euros), two 25.9 cm (10.2-inch) displays on the front seat backrests ensure brilliant video and audio quality.

The 'COMAND Touch' app has been extended in terms of its functions, especially in the ace of the Rear Seat Entertainment, allowing access via smartphone to various vehicle functions. A new feature is that passengers in the rear can now study the planned route during the journey and send points of interest along the route to the head unit for the driver. This also works when the passengers are not online, since the maps can be downloaded in advance for offline use. The 'COMAND Touch' App is available free of charge from the Apple™ App Store and Google Play Store.
