2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Delivers in Style and Luxury


Loaded with an array of modern technology and luxury, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S class is set to arrive in a Mercedes-Benz dealer near you this September. Although the shape and profile of this ultra-luxury automobile remain largely untouched, the S-Class’ softer, rolling curves give way to sharper lines, and a more well-built front face features larger lower intakes, a wider, more upright grille and a new headlight design. The rear end also gets a chiseled new look.

Absolute luxury starts with a first-rate interior, and the S-Class delivers in spades. The quality of the wood, leather, and metal interior materials is unmatched for a mass-produced car. Buyers can personalize their cabins with six interior colors, four leather colors, four levels of leather, four types of wood trim, and a new Air Balance system that flows air over a perfume dispenser to give the cabin a discreet but personalized scent. LED ambient lighting highlights various features, and drivers can pick from seven color choices.

The dashboard is redesigned in a horizontal theme, with a pair of 12.3-inch TFT screens showing a wealth of information. The left screen projects digital gauges, while the right screen handles the navigation, communications, climate and entertainment functions. These functions are controlled through Mercedes’ familiar COMAND interface that features a dial on the center console.

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class will offer a revised version of the outgoing model’s twin-turbocharged 4.7-liter V8. In S500 trim, the carryover engine produces 449 horsepower (up 20 hp) and 516 pound-feet of torque and it will pair with a seven-speed automatic transmission. Mercedes says the new S500 will cover zero to 62 mph in 4.8 seconds.

Of course, the S-Class would not be a Mercedes-Benz flagship without a tour de tech. One safety system, designed for use in Germany but adaptable to other markets, recognizes traffic signs and can alert wrong-way drivers of their error. An available adaptive suspension will use multiple onboard cameras to read the road ahead and adjust the damping to suit the surface. The Distronic Plus steering system, along with lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control and multiple sensors and radar systems almost make the S-Class an independent driving car.

The release of the Mercedes-Benz S class is approaching quickly. To stay up to date, visit Mercedes-Benz of Tucson.
