Overview

For long the Mercedes- S Class has been recognised as the best car in thw world. In the looks department the three-pointed star looks elegant and to an extent flashy with the huge swooping lamps, the big splashed in chrome grille, the muscular lines including bulging arches and the raised high deck boot. There is a reason why the Mercedes brand is often associated with luxury. It pampers you no end. Be it the soft leather which lets you snooze or rest in comfortable or the black insides which reflect luxury in a much better way. The Merc also has two pop out tables for snacks on the go, but what really sets this car apart is the single track theme – lavishness at its best. The S is all about the luxury of simplicity. It’s the classic style and attention to detail, for instance the crafted stalks, watch, switchgear, buttons, et al which combine to give the S a special feel that the Audi simply cannot match up to. The Benz equals all the rivals (around the world) when it comes to gee-whiz features. The talking point here is that this car doesn’t depend on these goodies and features or substitute them for luxury. There is enough glam for the rappers, enough lordliness for the yuppie hedge funder who wants to cover up his born with a silver spoon.

The S500L with its eight cylinder 5461cc engine churns out 369 of the finest Stuttgart ponnies. Giving all this power company is 505Nm of torque at a low 2800rpm. What is translates into is terrific low rpm response in traffic and when the roads open up, all this 2151kg car takes is 7.44 seconds from naught to a hundred. There is also a diesel version which is the best seller. The V6 diesel makes 210 bhp and the other engine is a V6 petrol also. It’s the way they isolate you from the outside world. In the S500L, ride quality, which is so important in this segment, is brilliant – smooth, relaxed and unfazed by road imperfections. The Airmatic suspension beautifully manages the ride and handling trade-off plus its Active Body Control manages to hold the car flat even when heeled hard into curves. Expect the diese S class to give a mileage of 9 kmpl which is great and for the S500 expect 5-6 kmpl and for the V6 petrol expect 7 kmpl.

rnThe handling of the S-Class is good but not class best. But you have to remember that this is a luxury saloon and thus ride is more important and saying that for a combination it is quite good. The big thing is safety, it has got so many features it is hard to list here. For example when once the high-resolution steering angle sensor recognises the steering behaviour that typically indicates the onset of drowsiness, a warning signal is sounded and "ATTENTION ASSIST. Break!" appears in the instrument cluster.  The S-Class is priced from Rs 80 lakhs onwards. For a detailed look read below

Interior

There is a reason why the Mercedes brand is often associated with luxury. It pampers you no end. Be it the soft leather which lets you snooze or rest in comfortable or the black insides which reflect luxury in a much better way. The Merc also has two pop out tables for snacks on the go, but what really sets this car apart is the single track theme – lavishness at its best. The S is all about the luxury of simplicity.

The talking point here is that this car doesn’t depend on these goodies and features or substitute them for luxury. There is enough glam for the rappers, enough lordliness for the yuppie hedge funder who wants to cover up his born with a silver spoon.

Exterior

In the looks department the three-pointed star looks elegant and to an extent flashy with the huge swooping lamps, the big splashed in chrome grille, the muscular lines including bulging arches and the raised high deck boot.

Mileage Running Cost

Expect the diesel S class to give a mileage of 9 kmpl which is great and for the S500 expect 5-6 kmpl and for the V6 petrol expect 7 kmpl.

 

Comfort Suspension

It’s the way they isolate you from the outside world. In the S500L, ride quality, which is so important in this segment, is brilliant – smooth, relaxed and unfazed by road imperfections. The Airmatic suspension beautifully manages the ride and handling trade-off plus its Active Body Control manages to hold the car flat even when heeled hard into curves.

Engine Performance

The S500L with its eight cylinder 5461cc engine churns out 369 of the finest Stuttgart ponnies. Giving all this power company is 505Nm of torque at a low 2800rpm. What is translates into is terrific low rpm response in traffic and when the roads open up, all this 2151kg car takes is 7.44 seconds from naught to a hundred. There is also a diesel version which is the best seller. The V6 diesel makes 210 bhp and the other engine is a V6 petrol also.

Braking Safety

The handling of the S-Class is good but not class best. But you have to remember that this is a luxury saloon and thus ride is more important and saying that for a combination it is quite good. The big thing is safety, it has got so many features it is hard to list here. For example when once the high-resolution steering angle sensor recognises the steering behaviour that typically indicates the onset of drowsiness, a warning signal is sounded and "ATTENTION ASSIST. Break!" appears in the instrument cluster.

Mercedes-Benz has also improved the long and medium-range radar used by Brake Assist PLUS and DISTRONIC PLUS proximity control. Both systems assist the driver during emergency braking. If the driver is distracted and fails to recognise the immediate danger of a rear-end collision, the PRE-SAFEBrake is able to intervene and brake the vehicle independently. The new generation of the system offers even greater safety: if the driver fails to react even after receiving a visual and acoustic warning, the PRE - SAFE  Brake is able to activate the maximum braking pressure around 0.6 seconds before an accident which is identified by the system as being unavoidable -- an emergency braking action that significantly mitigates the severity of the impact. The system therefore acts as an "electronic crumple zone", as it were.

    Killing Machine

    On 12.11.2011, our brother, Nirmal Saraf, was driving a Mercedes S-class (claimed to be one of the most safest cars of the world), from Jaipur to Agra alone during the day. At about 12 oclock, he met with an accident. A truck moving parallel to his car, took a sudden turn due which he had to apply sudden brakes. Unfortunately Read More
