With its ideal proportions and distinctive new details, the redesigned 2018 S-Class is at once more majestic and more athletic. From the double chrome bars in its grille and new front apron to its strong rear shoulders, it clearly conveys the power and strength within. Yet its subtleties are just as compelling. Its unusually crisp body creases, impossibly tight tolerances, and intriguing LED illumination make it the embodiment of confident elegance and the advancement of a rich tradition.
To set the benchmark for luxury sedans, the S-Class cabin is sculpted, sewn, appointed and equipped not just to provide unmatched comfort and convenience, but to stimulate and soothe your senses. Especially your sense of contentment.
DISTINCTIVE NEW BODY LINES.
Majestic in presence, poised on the move, the S-Class is at once athletic and elegant. From it's double-bar grille to its new "Stardust" taillamps, every detail advances two deep traditions: groundbreaking innovation wrapped in trendsetting style.
A WIDE WORLD OF INFORMATION.
Dual 12.3-inch widescreens are set side-by-side in a seamless floating frame. Each screen, a reconfigurable instrument panel and a central screen for entertainment, navigation and more, delivers a wealth of knowledge with instant clarity.
TOUCH CONTROL BUTTONS.
Two smartphone-like pads access nearly all the car's features directly from the steering wheel. Scroll, swipe and select from the central screen with your right thumb, and the screen between the gauges with your left.
THE NEW STATE OF ART.
Enhanced ambient cabin lighting lets you choose from 64 colors in a variety of themes and zones.
BEACON OF INSPIRATION.
The first car with 100% LED lighting takes its active LED headlamps to new heights, adapting its brilliaince to curves and other cars. New Ultra Wide Beam technology takes high beams to new widths, too, to better illuminate the roadsides.
A NEW PAIR OF ENGINES.
New engines respond with millisecond speed and molecular precision to keep performance and efficiency at their peak. A 3.0L biturbo V6 endows the S500 sedans with 457 hp.
A NEW 9-SPEED, FOR A WIDER RANGE OF TALENTS.
Swifter, smoother and more versatile, the new 9G-TRONIC transmission offers quicker takeoffs, quieter cruising, and more seamless acceleration in between. Shift paddles on the steering wheel keep sporty control at your fingertips.
AMG BODY STYLING.
Aggressive new sculpting of its deep front air dam, flared side sills and rear valence visually hug the road, much like the AMG® wheels included with the AMG Line achieve the same goal in a more literal sense. Polished chrome highlights underscore the front air dam and highlight the fins in its air intakes, expertly guiding airflow and rewarding your lingering gaze.
20" AMG MULTI-SPOKE ALLOY WHEELS.
Intricately sculpted spokes each feature an asymmetrical opening and shimmering finish that evoke both the fluid shapes of nature and the precision of machinery. High-performance tires fill the wheel arches with confidence.
HEATED 16-WAY POWER FRONT SEATS WITH MEMORY.
Intuitive, and artfully sculpted, seat-shaped controls help you and your front passenger find your ideal seating positions with 16-way power adjustment, including cushion length and 4-way power lumbar support. A memory system for each front seat recalls three stored seat positions with the touch of a button. The driver-seat memory also includes the power steering column and side mirror positions.
As rewarding as it is to have the key to an S-Class in your pocket or purse, you never need to take it out to start the car. Just step on the brake and push or the Start/Stop button on the dash, and you can be on your way.
Automatic assist mechanisms quietly and graciously finish closing the doors for you or your passengers. Just bring the door to its latch, and the closing assist gently snugs it to its fully closed position.
DUAL-ZONE AUTOMATIC CLIMATE CONTROL
Separate left and right digital temperature controls allow the driver and front passenger to enjoy personalized comfort. In addition to fully automatic or manual control of blower speed and airflow distribution, the system senses humidity and windshield fogging. An integrated filtration system helps remove dust, pollen and even odors from the cabin air.
The touchpad controller offers intuitive access to a world of entertainment, navigation and convenience. The central controller falls naturally to hand, teaming an intuitive touchpad with a rotary knob and one-touch keys for major functions. The touchpad responds to a variety of finger motions, including swipe, pinch and even handwriting. Carousel-style on-screen menus mimic the movement of the rotary knob, making adjustment of the car's abundant features logical and easy.
The Near-Field Communication (NFC) technology in the S-Class also allows wireless charging of a compatible phone or other device that supports the Qi standard. An inductive charging tray in the front-cabin console lets you charge your device's battery while you drive without plugging it in
BURMESTER SURROUND SOUND SYSTEM.
One of the most respected makers of handcrafted high-end home audio, Germany's Burmester® has developed a surround-sound system not only tailored to the S-Class, but worthy of it. With 13 high-quality speakers and a 590-watt 9-channel digital amplifier, the system fills the cabin with pure digital surround sound while seamlessly compensating for ambient noise. Exquisitely detailed aluminum speaker grilles are as rewarding to the eyes as the system's output is to the most discerning ears.
POWER REAR-WINDOW SUNSHADE.
With the touch of a button, you can help keep the cabin cooler and shield back-seat passengers from sunlight or glare. Raising and lowering electrically, this interior sunshade features fine mesh that allows you to see out through the rear window even when it´s in use.
Offering both front- and rear-seat passengers sweeping skyward views, this fully functional glass sunroof features a front panel that can either tilt up for ventilation or slide over the rear panel for an open-air feeling. Dual interior power shades with controls allow the driver and each rear passenger to adjust the amount of sunlight entering the cabin.
