Mercedes expands its sedan line up with yet another car, the Mercedes Benz S600 launched at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. It is a twelve cylinder S-Class new luxury sedan packed with a V-12 engine. Therefore, if you wish to go for the latest generation of Mercedes Benz S-class, you have options not only between S550 and S63 AMG as this car slots in between the two in the range. With a long range of equipment, the sedan performs well with 530 hp power output and 830Nm torque. The displacement of the engine has increased to 5980 cc from an earlier 5513 cc. Maximum torque can be achieved from 1900 rpm. The S600 also has an ECO – tart and stop system for fuel saving purposes. When it comes to emissions, the car meets the Euro 6 emission standard. Fuel consumption stands at 11.1 litres/ 100km which is 21 per cent lower than that of its predecessor – 14.1 litre / 100km. The performance of the automobile is boosted by the 7G Tronic transmission which picks from 0 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds and achieving a top speed of 155 mph.

In Mercedes- Benz, the figure ‘600’, according to website, has long been a legend in the history of the automobile. The first passenger car featuring a V8 injection engine launched in 1963 was associated with the number – 600 (W 100). The same engine giving an output of 184 kW were also used during the year 1967 on the W109 model series. Other top models using this engine are the SEL 6.9 from the model series 116 with an output of 210 kW and the 560 SE in the 126 series with power output – 220 kW in the ECE version.

Although the car has a lot of features similar to the S-class lineup, it brandishes quite a new set of features as well such as the new head – up display projecting information about the car’s speed, navigation directions and more details on the windshield. In technology, there is also a new touchpad in the infotainment system on which the passengers can write letters and numbers, in their own handwriting conforming to the languages fed in the system.therefore, the touchpad offers much more than the existing COMMAND CONTROLLER and LINGUATRONIC. A feature ‘Collision Prevention Assist Plus’ for safety can automatically bring the car to a halt at slow speeds in order to prevent a crash. It can apply braking if it detects the car travelling at a speed of 124 mph or higher on detecting an imminent accident. The target of the software is to avoid a crash, if not avoiding, at least to reduce the severity of the crash. Another interesting feature is the optional heated front windshield to remove snow from the windshield without scraping the ice off in winter.

The sedan offers several features standard to the car while being optional on the S550 which are The Magic Ride Control Suspension to automatically absorb road imperfections, the Driving Assistance Package bundling lane – departure prevention, Active Blind Spot Assist, adaptive cruise control with semi autonomous steering and a road safety device – the pedestrian – detection braking system.

In looks, the exterior has been slightly worked on, in terms of the lower fascia, a trio of double bladed horizontal slats in the massive grille and the rectangular quad exhaust outlets, reminding us of the AMG. The interiors have been preserved as per the S-class luxury sedan requirements .

Therefore, on seeing the increased performance and the extensive standard equipment, one can expect the 2015 Mercedes Benz S600 to cost quite over the 2014 S550’s $93825 (with destination) entry price.
