Coming from the house of Mercedes, expectations are high from this car. And we can safely say that it delivers on all counts. The car is a unique blend of technological innovations and stellar performance. But it will be injustice to single out a feature and call it the best in class. Mercedes has gone all out and developed a car that does it best in every single aspect that you can possibly think of. Every detail has been paid attention to.

Let’s start with the ‘Efficient Technology’ feature that Mercedes is proud of. It nearly halves the fuel consumption. The drag coefficient of this car is at an all time low of 0.24. The fuel consumption is 4.4 liters per 100 kilometers. Cars like these act as harbingers for others. This one eliminates the use of light bulbs completely. It has LED lighting all over, a futuristic move. The look of a Mercedes is unique. It can be distinguished in the crowd. The new car makes slight changes to the exterior. They have enlarged the radiator grille. The interior lighting consists of 300 LEDs. Two assistance systems have been included to improve visibility. They are the Adaptive Highbeam Assist Plus and Night View Assist Plus. A stereo camera and multistage radar sensors enable the S Class to have a 360 degree vision and detects hurdles on the road.

This is the first car that can detect unevenness on roads before the wheels traverse them. If the inbuilt ROAD SURFACE SCAN detects such fluctuations with its stereo camera, the technology named as MAGIC BODY CONTROL prepares the suspension system for dealing with the changing road condition. This feature comes at a price though. By default the customer will get an adaptive system.

The car is roomier than before and offers unmatched comfort. The internal display system consists of two high resolution TFT color displays. They come in 8:3 format with a screen size of 12.3 inches. They provide all the information a driver could possibly need access to. One of the displays is kept strictly for information purpose. The other opens the world of infotainment and comfort features. A new feature has been added in this car. The all new AIR BALANCE package consists of perfume atomisation, ionisation and better filtration as compared to the previous model. There is a THERMOTRONIC automatic climate control in the rear zone that provides additional comfort. The armrests can be heated, leave alone the seats.

As for the infotainment system, there is the innovative Frontbass system developed by Mercedes Benz themselves. The woofers are kept in the firewall and resonate in the 40 liter space. The tradition of keeping woofers in the doors is done away with. Even the speakers from the doors have been removed to increase storage solutions. This allows more stowage solutions while increasing the impact of the acoustic system.

The state of the art navigation function has an interactive option that interacts with the driver on several levels. We have “Driveshow”, an animated compass for passenger information as in an aircraft, and the access to Google Maps on the head unit and in the rear unit. Information about real time traffic data is shown on the screen with hatched lines.

The proprietary PRE SAFE BRAKE can identify an imminent rear end collision and intimate the car about to collide by beaming the rear hazard warning lights at a high frequency. The technology can also insulate the driver and the passengers from the impact caused by the accident. Overall the car is a wonder to drive and a pleasure to be in.
