According to Mercedes-Benz SA, This vehicle is a testament to the relentless pursuit of excellence by the carmaker and owners of its kind. Holding high regard for contemporary characteristics such as connectivity, autonomy and digitisation, the seventh-generation model has become more intelligent in many more areas. This is a machine meant for the disciplined and sophisticated.
The latest generation S-Class models are equipped standard with the latest cutting edge MBUX operating system running on a 12.8-inch OLED central display, plus a 12.3-inch digital driver display. Visual highlights like ambient lighting breathe life and energy into this unique Sedan, Automatic Climate Control that lets you set the temperature, Keyless-go retractable handles and Burmester high-end 4D surround sound system, to name a few.
Plush, automatically extending seamless door handles in an elegant design are standard on both the S-Class and Mercedes-Maybach in conjunction with the electronic drive access authorisation system Keyless-go. The doors can be locked and unlocked keyless, by touching the door handles.
With 31 speakers of which two are Frontbass versions, the Burmester high-end 4D surround sound system has eight exciters. Two exciters are integrated into the backrest of each seat. Direct reproduction of the sound resonance in the seats adds another level to the three-dimensional listening experience – 4D sound.
The perceived intensity of the sound can be individually adjusted for each seat. The music becomes even more emotional thanks to this feelable component. In addition to music reproduction, the 4D sound is also used to create an even more emotional function of Energizing Comfort. Two amplifiers with a total output of 1750 watts of power intensify your enjoyment of the music and relax you, all at the same time. Hybrid amplifier technology with digital signal processing, analogue filters and separate power supply ensure precise and highly dynamic sound reproduction.
The 12.8-inch OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) central display transforms your cockpit into a high-tech command centre in the S-Class. The head-up display in the front windscreen and the central OLED touch display represents an innovative and at the same time intuitive control concept. Thanks to the MBUX voice control the new S-Class can adapt to your requirements and support you.

The digital driver display is a 12.3-inch 3D driver display with a three-dimensional representation of other road users and pronounced depth and shade effects, which is available on request.
With a grown grille, the S-Class body-sides and flanks are magnificently surfaced and prominent - stating the vehicle's authority at rest and in motion. While the head and tail-lights contain the most phenomenally complex illumination technology, beaming a clear path as you trailblaze your way through the city and your industry.
When it comes to the interior, the overhead control panel and learning algorithms that make use of internal cameras assist in recognising and anticipating the wishes and intentions of its occupants. It does this by interpreting hand gestures and head direction, responding with the corresponding vehicle functions.
Active ambient lighting uses fibre optics made of a transparent material. The light of the primary colours red, green and blue generated by the LEDs is reflected at the boundary between the optically denser and the optically less dense material.
In addition to a static light, the colours can alternate along with the entire fibre optics in order to stage productions. The active ambient lighting is generated by a light band comprised of about 250 LEDs distributed side by side at a distance of 1.6 centimetres in the vehicle interior as an additional light plane. The optics are designed to create a continuous line of light.
