Mercedes-Benz laid the path for future luxury technologies with the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Vision achieved, that’s what the German car maker says in regard to the new luxury sedan, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class. They recently released a video that compliments their earlier text release which we showed you a few weeks ago. This does not only prove the rigidity of Mercedes-Benz in the luxury car segment, it puts them at the top of the food chain.
The latest generation S-Class is the first developed with the Asian market firmly in focus. Therefore, the long wheel base Mercedes-Benz S-Class forms the basis of the range, with the short wheel base version developed from this.
The video highlights among many things the technology inside which forms the basis of the luxury. It shows a business man working closely with his construction project. Telecommuting is very easy in the new Mercedes not to mention internet connectivity is a touch away through Wi-Fi. Safety put into focus, pedestrians safer, changing lanes is safer and the level of safety goes on and on.
Better yet, among the powertrains offered are the 3.0-litre V6 diesel with 254bhp in the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S350 BlueTEC and a 2.1-litre four-cylinder diesel engine with 204bhp in combination with a 20kW electric motor for a total output of 228bhp in the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S300 BlueTEC Hybrid. Mercedes-Benz will also offer a twin-turbocharged 4.7-litre V8 petrol engine that produces 449bhp. We also suspect that an S63 AMG and S65 AMG will follow, alongside a Maybach replacement at some point.
Let’s just say, you barely drive the new S-Class, it drives you!
