2016 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Walk Around


The Mercedes-Benz S-Class continues to exude every element of class and luxury that has made it a benchmark for decades. A redesig for the 2014 model year replaced the stiffly formal appearance with a curvaceous roofline.

Today’s gracefully elegant S-Class displays an athletic tone that complements its large body and strong lines. Large frontal features include LED-accented lights and a tall grille, while the arched roof tapers modestly into a smooth rear end.

Logically enough, the coupe looks more athletic than the sedan, with a slimmer nose. All told, the two-door seems wider, as well as more low-slung. AMG models seem even more muscular, with aggressively aerodynamic elements all around.

Interior

Now a model of plush automotive sensuality, the sixth-generation S-Class is packed with systems to coddle and comfort its occupants. High-contrast materials have a richer feel than in earlier S-Class models, matched by stunning detailing and ample brightwork. S-Class finishes seem lovelier than ever, including the quilted leather dashboard.

Streamlined in appearance, the cabin manages to blend splendor with simple functionality. Controls include the latest version of the Mercedes-Benz COMAND connectivity system. Coupe and sedan dashboards are related but not identical, featuring a twin-tier layout.

Front seats are simply superb, with long, wide cushions, accompanied by first-class amenities. In sedans, at least, outboard back-seat positions are similarly roomy and comfortable. In coupes, the lower roofline steals a little space, but materials are no less opulent.

A First Class Rear Suite option adds reclining rear seats with fold-out footrests, laptop/work trays, heated armrests, and a hot-stone massage function. Twin screens are available for infotainment, and audiophiles can upgrade to a Burmester sound system.
