We reported in detail when the all new 2014 Mercedes S Class was unveiled at a launch event in Hamburg yesterday. The new S Class, which made a lot of news much prior to making public debut, is being expected to raise the bar in its segment and become the new benchmark in opulence, safety and style.

Seen here is a video which shows the new S Class in action. From the looks of it, the new S Class is definitely a class ahead of the outgoing model. What do you say?

The new S Class comes ‘overloaded’ with techno gadgetry and boasts of features such as seats with ENERGIZING massage system based on hot-stone massage therapy with six different massaging programs, integrated telephone for rear seats and a high end Burmester® High-End 3D Surround Sound system with 24 high-performance speakers and 24 separate amplifier channels with a total output of 1540 watts with a set of 12.3 inch TFT screens for in car audio visual entertainment among others.

The S-Class also comes with LINGUATRONIC- a voice control system that enables the occupants to control phones and music systems using voice commands. The feature can read your messages and emails too. A new feature called AIR-BALANCE package takes care of perfume atomisation in 4 different fragrances, ionisation and efficient filtration inside the car. The THERMOTRONIC automatic climate control in the rear has two additional cooling zones.

The new car benefits from ROAD SURFACE SCAN (optional) that detects undulations in the road surface through the stereo camera and the MAGIC BODY CONTROL tunes up the suspension to tackle the changing surfaces in real time. The standard equipment for the new S-Class reads an Adaptive Damping System ADS PLUS and an improved version of AIRMATIC full air suspension system.

There are two body lengths to choose from: 5248 and 5116 millimetres – 42 and 40 millimetres longer than the predecessor model respectively considering that Europe and North America S-Class owners are frequently behind the wheel themselves, the flagship model in the Mercedes-Benz passenger car portfolio is very much a chauffeur-driven vehicle in Asia. Also three interior colour options and wooden trims would be available to choose from.

The new S Class is powered by a 4.7 litre twin turbo V8 pumping 455 bhp and 700 nm of torque, and transferred to the wheels via 7 speed auto transmission. The new S-Class motor is claimed to be extremely frugal for its class and implementation of “Efficient Technology” has almost halved fuel consumption to 4.4 litres per 100 kilometres. An all-wheel-drive version and the S63 AMG is slated to follow post a few months after the official launch. Two new variants on the V-12 engine i.e. the S600 and the S65 AMG are slated for next year’s debut. Mercedes claims a 0-100 kph sprint of 4.8 seconds for the new S Class.

Safety features include next generation set of features such as Active Parking Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Night View Assist Plus, Distronic Plus with Steering Assist, Brake Assist Plus with Cross-Traffic Assist, Pre-Safe Brake with pedestrian recognition etc.
