The Mercedes-Benz S-Class (W223) is now on sale in India. The car will be imported as a completely built unit (CBU). The all-new S-Class Launch Edition will be offered exclusively in AMG Line trim.
The new S-Class is a tad longer (+34 mm), wider (+22 mm),higher (+13 mm) and with a lengthened wheelbase (+51 mm) than its predecessor. A traditional Mercedes grille sits in the front, flanked by reprofiled LED headlamps. It includes tiny LED tail lamp clusters at the back, which are a big improvement over the previous generation’s large wraparound units. The car also gets flush-fitting door handles for the first time.
As soon as you step inside, you’ll see that a lot has changed. You’ll still receive one of the most luxurious cabins in the segment, but it’ll have a more futuristic feel this time. A big 12.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a second screen for the digital instrument cluster are available.The majority of the switches have been incorporated into the main touchscreen.
The S-Class has a Burmester 4D sound system, ambient lighting with over 263 optic LED lights, the new MBUX infotainment system with voice commands, and seats that recline and massage you as you ride in the comfort of this luxury sedan.
The S-Class is available in India with two engine options: a 3.0-litre, 6-cylinder petrol with 362 BHP and 500 Nm and a 3.0-litre, 6-cylinder diesel with 282 BHP and 600 Nm. A 48 V mild hybrid system, a 9-speed automatic transmission, all-wheel drive, and rear-wheel steering are standard on all models.
The new S-Class, as expected, is laden with safety measures. It features E-Active Body Control adaptive suspension system, pre-safe Impulse Control, and, most crucially, a frontal airbag for rear passengers, as well as Level 3 autonomous driving capabilities.
