The new 2018

The benchmark of luxury, at the peak of intelligence.

View Gallery

For generations, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class has represented the pinnacle of luxury sedans. With the newly updated 2018 S-Class, the flagship vehicle ushers in a new generation of luxury, defined by subtle intelligence, absolute comfort and magnificent power.

From its prominent new air intakes to its gem-like new taillamps, the new S-Class is a visible departure from its predecessor. But its most important differences lie beneath the surface, where a new generation of engines brings efficient levels of power. A new 3.0L V6 biturbo powers the S450, while the 4.0L engine in the new Mercedes-Benz S560 is a remarkably efficient V8.

Enhanced camera and radar systems give the new sedans a commanding view of the surrounding traffic. Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC® with Route-Based Speed Adaptation can adjust speed automatically when approaching a vehicle head — at a wider range of speeds than its previous version. And it makes use of COMAND® map data to automatically adjust speed when approaching curves and intersections*. It´s just one element of a Driver Assistance Package that makes this the most intelligent Mercedes-Benz yet.

Within, the cabin is a feast for the senses, with two new natural grain ash wood trim offerings, three new upholstery color combinations, and an ambient lighting atmosphere option with 64 available colors. By selecting the new ENERGIZING Comfort feature, drivers can link the vehicles systems into distinct configurations to suit a particular need or state of mind. Lighting, climate control, fragrance, seats, temperature and music create the right ambience for any situation.

Look for these new S-Class sedans to appear at a dealership near you later this year.
