The S-Class’ design is as opulent as ever with plenty of premium touches. The tri-pointed ornament is mounted on the hood, below which is the chrome-laden grille flanked by sleek LED headlamps. The Launch edition models are based on the AMG Line trim and  pack sportier bumpers and 20-inch dual-tone alloy wheels. In profile, the flush-fitting door handles and the soft character line impart a smooth look. Moving on to the rear, the S-Class features split-LED tail lamps. 


Since most S-Class owners spend time in the rear seats, the luxury sedan gets lounge-like rear seats with soft pillows. Occupants are also treated with creature comforts like twin entertainment screens, ventilated and heated seats, massaging function, ambient lighting, neck warmer, and separate zones of climate control. All these features can be controlled via a 7-inch tablet placed in the rear central console. 

Fun Fact: The S-Class’ Burmester 4D sound system has sound exciters on all four seats, which gives you a massage based on the beats of the track! 

Passengers seated behind the co-driver get a ‘boss mode’. With a press of a button, the rear seats recline and the front seat slides forward for a comfortable seating position. Also, safety for rear occupants is taken care of by frontal facing airbags placed behind the front seats, protecting the occupants head and neck in case of a mishap. 


The S-Class’ dashboard is more modern than before thanks to the new 12.3inch digital driver’s display and 12.8-inch MBUX touchscreen infotainment system. The latter can be secured via facial recognition or fingerprint so that no one will be able to access your information. Also, Mercedes has provided the infotainment with a 320GB SSD to save your favourite music.

Other notable features include a Burmester 4D sound system, ambient lighting, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, connected car tech, powered front seats with massage function, two wireless phone chargers, and a panoramic sunroof. Also, rear axle steering allows for easier maneuvering in tight spaces while the standard air suspension provides a cushy ride. 

Fun Fact: The S-Class’s ambient lighting changes colour as you change the temperature or activate the indicator. So so cool!

Safety is taken care of by 10 airbags, ABS with EBD, front and rear parking sensors, a 360-degree camera, electronic stability control, a tyre pressure monitor, and Pre-safe with impulse side.The last one basically raises and stiffens the suspension on one particular side if it detects an impact, minimising injury for occupants.
