Mercedes-Benz S-Class!

The long awaited premiere of the renewed Mercedes-Benz S-Class was finally held after the German manufacturer organized several closed events for its customers. Other than a few design changes, the Benz received two new engines and an autonomous movement system.

Due to changes in the appearance of the vehicle, Mercedes changed the configuration of the lights, adding edgier matrix LED headlights.

The modernized S-Class will contain an enhanced camera and radar system, giving the driver a better overview of the traffic situation ahead of him/her. This Benz will also use the maps from the vehicle navigation system for better driving behavior. What this means is that the range of automated driving functions will be extended to all street types, not just highways.

Adaptive cruise control will slow down or accelerate depending on the curves on the roads, whether an intersection is ahead and so on. The behavior of the cruise control will be determined by the selected driving mode - in Eco mode, the car will be able to ignite with the engine turned off. Adaptive cruise control will run at a speed of 210 km/h. Similar to the E-Class, the Mercedes is able to adjust the driving speed according to the speed limits on the roads which is determined by the information the navigation system and road-sign recognition system provide the driver.

The S-Class will also be capable of parallel and rear remote parking, and the system is also capable of retracting the wing mirrors to help park the car without risking any damage. This luxury sedan will be able to drive up to 15 meters without a driver.

Now, let's talk about the interior, and I don't mean the seats.

Instead of the current 4.7 liter V8 engine, a 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 engine is going to be under the hood of this modernized S-Class. In the S560, the engine develops 469 HP, while in the AMG S63 version, the engine produces 612 HP.

In the Mercedes-Benz flagship range, the regular 6-cylinder diesel engines come in 2 power variants - the 286 HP with 600 Nm of torque for the S 350 D 4Matic and a 340 HP with 700 Nm of torque for the S 400 D. A new benzine engine witl 6 cylinders and an electric turbine will be available for the model which will be available in two power variants as well, and the power parameters for the benzine engines will be known soon.
