With increased displacement and a commensurate boost in output, the V12 biturbo engine combines exuberance and effortlessness like no other engine. Such thoroughbred specifications as a diecast alloy block, forged pistons and sodium-filled exhaust valves team with a new twin-spark ignition and advanced engine controls. The result is far more than its 523 hp, 612 lb-ft of torque, and 4.5-second sprint to 60 mph. It's the feeling of unconquerable strength that it delivers with unflappable poise.
A fuel-saving ECO Start/Stop system automatically shuts off the engine at stoplights and other idle situations. As soon as the driver lifts off the brake, the engine instantly restarts, for immediate acceleration response. The ECO Start/Stop system can also be shut off by the driver at any time.
Smooth, responsive and efficient, the 7-speed automatic offers the ideal response in virtually every driving situation, from relaxed cruising to quick acceleration. Two overdrive ratios enhance highway fuel-efficiency. An electronic selector and shift paddles on the steering wheel let you control all gear changes with your hands on the wheel. Adaptive logic paces automatic shifting to match your driving style. And the shift paddles let you enjoy manual control anytime.
MAGIC BODY CONTROL® advances the industry-leading Active Body Control® fully active suspension even farther. Using the stereo-multipurpose camera of Intelligent Drive to continually scan the road surface for variations, it prepares the suspension to take action before the wheels reach them. A network of advanced sensors and electronically controlled hydraulics generates forces to counteract the effects of the road surface on ride and handling, for an uncompromised fusion of both virtues.
Standard Torque Vectoring Brake technology provides additional control and precision in turns via targeted rear-wheel braking. If the vehicle's Electronic Stability Program (ESP®) detects understeer while cornering, the system applies the brake to the inside rear wheel, temporarily shifting torque distribution in favor of the outside wheel. This causes the vehicle to gently pivot in compensation, putting it on a line of travel, or vector, better suited to the turn.
Advanced electromechanical power steering delivers quicker response in corners, easier maneuvering at low speeds, along with precise on-center feel and straight-line stability.

While the palatial S-Class cabin is overflowing with advanced technology, timeless and thoughtful attention to detail ensures that it's never overwhelming. Extensive hand-tailoring of the leather, with an abundance of precisely topstitched upholstery on virtually every surface, teams with a tantalizing array of exotic, handcrafted wood trim options and aluminum accents. The net effect envelops the occupants in a sense of time well spent, both in its craftsmanship and your enjoyment of it.
The S-Class is the first car without a single lightbulb since the advent of electric lighting in automobiles. From its headlamps to its distinctive horizontal taillamps, nearly 200 long-lasting and energy-efficient LEDs accomplish every exterior lighting function with distinctive style. LEDs also offer quicker illumination, offering other drivers more time to react to your brake lamps and other signals.
Approximately 300 LEDs bring extraordinary lighting effectiveness and a unique sense of environment to the cabin, again without employing a single conventional lightbulb. From the elaborate ambient lighting system, offering seven color options and multiple zones, to the subtle yet crisp lighting of the storage areas, footwells and even the instrument displays, the lighting concept of the S-Class promotes safer, less stressful driving and a sense of well-being for all aboard.
A pair of 12.3-inch high-resolution screens use a variety of reconfigurable displays to unify every function of traditional gauges and advanced in-car technologies with exceptional clarity.

Substantial in size and style yet light in weight, the standard 19-inch multispoke wheels are a visual tribute to the car's twin-turbocharged performance. They're fitted with all-season Extended Mobility tires. Disclaimer
Offering both front- and rear-seat passengers sweeping skyward views, this fully functional glass sunroof features a front panel that can either tilt up for ventilation or slide over the rear panel for an open-air feeling. Dual interior power shades with controls allow the driver and each rear passenger to adjust the amount of sunlight entering the cabin.
Exclusive Trim extends the already generous application of hand-finished wood to the center panels on all four doors and the rear air vent surround on the console. Additional detailing on the front seatbacks further enhances the rear-cabin ambiance.
Trimmed in hand-finished wood and hand-sewn in supple Nappa leather, the two-spoke steering wheel includes power tilt and telescopic adjustment. For fingertip access to some of the vehicle functions you use most often, convenient buttons adjust the audio, access your Bluetooth® phone and activate the advanced voice control. You can also scroll through the features of the illustrated multifunction display in the instrument cluster, with a "home" button further enhancing its convenience.
The ceiling, sunvisors and roof pillars are lined in rich, suedelike DINAMICA, bringing the tailored ambience of the cabin literally to new heights.
Radar-based technology alerts you if you're approaching a vehicle ahead, or even some stationary objects, at a speed and distance that suggest a collision is likely. As soon as the driver starts to brake, its Adaptive Brake Assist automatically provides the ideal level of braking, to help prevent a collision or reduce its severity. The system can also provide autonomous braking from speeds up to 65 mph, and can activate the features of PRE-SAFE®. Disclaimer
The first system of its kind, ATTENTION ASSIST® continuously monitors up to 70 parameters of driving behavior, and can automatically alert the driver with both visual and audible warnings if it detects signs of drowsiness on long trips. With enhanced sensitivity, the system can also help detect drivers who begin their trip drowsy, and offer more useful information to drivers along their journey via a new dashboard display. Disclaimer
This radar-based cruise control adapts your set speed to the flow of traffic ahead, automatically slowing until your path is clear again. If the vehicle ahead slows to a stop, DISTRONIC PLUS® can brake your car to a full halt. When traffic moves, you can resume with just a tap, or automatically if the stop is under a second. The system's Steering Assist feature helps the driver keep the vehicle centered in between the lane markings while cruising on straight roads, or even in gentle curves. Disclaimer
Pioneered by Mercedes-Benz, active LED headlamps generate light that's perceived much like natural daylight. Active Curve Illumination and Adaptive Highbeam Assist continuously vary the beam pattern of the LEDs in each headlamp to help maximize the illumination of corners and straightaways, without creating glare for other drivers.
Adaptive Highbeam Assist uses continuous input from a camera to automatically vary the range of your headlamps, based on the distance to oncoming vehicles and to those ahead of you. It's engineered to maximize road illumination without creating glare for other drivers.
Bright white LED Daytime Running Lamps help increase the visibility of your vehicle to oncoming traffic by illuminating front lights whenever the car is switched on. With long life and low energy consumption, the light-emitting diode (LED) lamps also add a distinctive high-tech styling touch.
The elegant taillamps employ LED technology for every function, and with distinctive form. Brighter than traditional incandescent bulbs, LEDs also provide quicker illumination of the brake lamps. By offering drivers behind you more time to react, this could make a critical difference in a panic stop.
Interpreting information that is continually supplied by the car's Electronic Stability Program (ESP®), electric power steering and suspension sensors, Crosswind Assist help detect the effects of strong side winds on the vehicle's handling stability at highway speeds. Whether caused by lateral gusts or even a passing truck, the system helps keep the car on course via strategic braking of the wheels on one side of the vehicle. Disclaimer
At most driving speeds, radar technology helps sense when a vehicle enters the blind-spot area. Blind Spot Assist then automatically alerts the driver via an illuminated red icon in the appropriate side mirror. A warning tone sounds and a display appears in the instrument cluster if you activate a turn signal while a vehicle has been detected. And if you begin to change lanes, advanced active technology can help guide the car back. Disclaimer
With technology that monitors ordinary road markings above a certain driving speed, Active Lane Keeping Assist helps detect unintended drifting off-course, and alerts you by vibrating the steering wheel. If you continue to drift, it can selectively brake individual wheels to help guide the car back into its lane. Enhancements help it to detect and alert the driver to overtaking vehicles, vehicles you would need to overtake if you change lanes, and even oncoming traffic in the adjacent lane. Disclaimer
BAS® PLUS uses radar sensors to scan the road ahead at driving speeds up to approximately 45 mph. Cross-Traffic Assist uses radar plus advanced cameras to help detect a potential collision with vehicles approaching from either side of an intersection ahead, or with pedestrians in the car's path. When the driver responds to the system's alert by braking, Brake Assist PLUS precisely applies the maximum brake force required to help prevent such an accident. Disclaimer
Even when you´re not using the cruise control functions of DISTRONIC PLUS, PRE-SAFE® Brake can help detect an impending collision and automatically apply up to 100% braking force to help reduce the severity of impact. At speeds of up to approximately 35 mph, its Pedestrian Recognition feature can help detect if pedestrians have entered in your path and automatically apply the brakes. Disclaimer
Using information from the navigation system's database, Speed Limit Assist can display the published speed limit in the instrument cluster display or in the available Head-Up Display. This innovative system makes it easier to keep tabs on your driving speed, especially in reduced speed zones. Even if you pass a sign without noticing it, the persisting display help keep you aware of published speed limits. Disclaimer
In darkness, Night View Assist PLUS projects invisible infrared beams and reads them with a special camera. Combined with thermal imaging, the system can display a clearer, supplemental real-time view of the road ahead in the digital instrument cluster, either full-time or automatically when danger is detected. Its advanced technology can also help identify and point out pedestrians and animals along a dark roadway, and help alert pedestrians with a flash of the LED headlamps in their direction. Disclaimer
As you drive by parking spaces, Active Parking Assist helps you size them up using sensors in the bumper. Once you decide to back into a space, it can expertly steer and brake the car for you. When it's time to leave, it can even steer you back out. In any low-speed maneuver, PARKTRONIC's ultrasonic sensors in the front and rear bumpers help detect nearby objects within its field of view. Audible signals and illuminated displays in the cabin help you navigate tight spaces with confidence. Disclaimer
The advanced Surround View System uses cameras in all four directions to compose a single, live overhead view of your immediate surroundings. Displayed on the in-dash COMAND® screen during low-speed maneuvers, it helps you avoid obstacles as you negotiate tight spaces, whether you´re moving forward or backing up. Disclaimer
A Mercedes-Benz first, PRE-SAFE can detect instability during certain vehicle maneuvers that suggest a collision or rollover is imminent. It can then tighten the front seat belts, adjust the front passenger seat, and close the windows and sunroof, all in an effort to better prepare the occupants and restraints in the moments before a collision. If no accident occurs, the seat-belt tensioners reverse, and you simply readjust your seat, open the sunroof and continue on your way. Disclaimer
An enhancement to the groundbreaking PRE-SAFE® system helps protect the occupants in a rear-end collision. A radar sensor in the rear bumper helps detect an impending impact, engaging the features of PRE-SAFE to better prepare the front-seat occupants and their restraint systems. It can also firmly apply and hold the brakes, to help reduce peak loads on all occupants as well as the risk of a secondary collision. Disclaimer
An advanced system of 9 air bags offers 11-way occupant protection. Dual two-stage front air bags, a driver´s knee air bag, pelvic/thorax air bags for the driver and front passenger, rear side-impact air bags, and side curtain air bags for both seating rows are all standard. Disclaimer
To encourage seat-belt use by rear passengers, motorized buckles automatically rise and illuminate when a passenger is seated, then retract to their normal position once the belt is fastened. In a sufficiently severe impact, the buckles can also further retract, to help reduce seat belt slack and better secure the occupant, especially beneficial if the seatback is reclined. Disclaimer
Innovative Beltbag® air bags are discreetly integrated with the outboard rear 3-point seat belts. In a sufficiently severe impact, the seat belt's Emergency Tensioning Device and active buckle help remove slack from the belt. Milliseconds later, the inflation of the air bag expands the surface area of the belt to help distribute the forces of impact over a larger area, potentially reducing injuries. Disclaimer
An innovative Cushionbag® is provided within the seat cushion of the Executive right rear seat. In certain impact conditions, a specially designed air bag quickly raises the front section of the cushion. Activating underneath the upholstery, the Cushionbag helps keep the belted occupant from sliding beneath the seat belt in a collision. Disclaimer
Adaptive braking technology integrates a suite of advances. If you lift off the accelerator quickly, Predictive Brake Priming sets the pads closer to the discs for more immediate response when you apply the brakes. In the rain, Automatic Brake Drying periodically applies the brakes just enough to sweep water build-up from the discs. During uphill starts, Hill-Start Assist helps prevent unwanted rollback. And a HOLD feature can make long red lights or stopped traffic a little easier. Disclaimer
The Antilock Braking System (ABS) senses impending wheel lockup under heavy braking, and pumps the front brakes individually or the rear brakes together up to 30 times per second. By preventing wheel lockup, ABS helps preserve the driver's steering ability during hard braking. Disclaimer
Brake Assist senses emergency braking via the speed at which the driver presses the brake pedal and immediately applies maximum available power boost. Brake Assist can potentially reduce the overall stopping distance by eliminating the delay caused by a common human tendency not to brake hard enough, soon enough. Letting up on the brake pedal releases Brake Assist. Disclaimer
This safety breakthrough first introduced by Mercedes-Benz continually monitors your driving inputs and the vehicle's motion to help keep it going in your intended direction, especially in corners and during evasive maneuvers. If it detects wheelspin, severe understeer (plowing), or oversteer (fishtailing), ESP® can brake individual wheels and reduce engine power to help bring the vehicle under control. Disclaimer
Greater use of aluminum helps the body shell of the S-Class elevate its overall rigidity, occupant protection and acousting qualities while reducing weight. Along with high-strength and ultra-high-strength steel, advanced lightweight materials such as extruded and cast aluminum, diecast magnesium, metal-polymer hybrids and high-density foam in the roof pillars enhance body strength while cutting excess mass.
The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) can automatically detect a substantial loss of tire pressure in any wheel and alert the driver via a warning message in the multifunction display. The advanced TPMS can also display the numeric tire pressure for each mounted wheel.
The SmartKey remote control integrates remote door locks and trunk opener, a removable valet key, and a remote panic alarm. You may selectively unlock only the driver´s door and fuel filler, or all doors plus the trunk and fuel filler. The vehicle can be started via a pushbutton in the dash, thanks to a standard KEYLESS-START feature.
The standard antitheft alarm system is armed automatically when you lock your Mercedes from the outside. It sounds the horn and flashes the exterior lights if a door, the trunk or the hood is opened without first unlocking the vehicle. You can also sound the alarm by pressing the red "panic" button on your SmartKey remote when you're within range of your vehicle.
MAGIC VISION CONTROL® features wiper blades with laser-cut holes that emit a highly precise spray of washer fluid directly in front of the moving wipers.
