Merc updates its S-Class for 2018

The newly updated S-Class Sedan comes with an array of new features including Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC and Active Steering Assist which now provides even more support for the driver to keep a safe distance and steer. The speed is now adjusted automatically ahead of curves or junctions. Further unique features of the S-Class in its segment include the LED Intelligent Light System with Ultra-Wide Beam, Road Surface Scan (the forward-looking detection of bumps) and curve-tilting function.

ENERGIZING Comfort optional feature links various comfort systems in the vehicle together. It systematically uses the functions of the climate control system (including fragrancing) and the seats (heater, ventilation, massage), the console heating as well as lighting and musical atmospheres, and enables a specific wellness set-up tailored to the mood and need of the driver. This enhances the physical comfort and performance both while driving and during breaks.

With 64 colors, the optionally extended ambient lighting offers a wealth of individual settings. It adds lighting elements on the trim elements, central display, stowage facility at the front of the center console, handle recesses, door pockets, in the front and rear footwells and on the overhead control panel when the vehicle is equipped with the Burmester® High-End 3D Surround Sound System.
The AMG S 63 model can reach electronically limited speeds of up to 186 mph (298 kph)just after acceleration from 0-60 mph in just 3.4 secs.

The Mercedes-Benz flagship model was the best-selling luxury sedan in the world in 2016. Since 2013, the company has sold well over 300,000 sedans.
