Mercedes-Benz Fun Facts: What Makes the S-Class Special

Mercedes-Benz S-Class - Best Luxury Car

In 2014 the Mercedes-Benz S-Class has swept all before it, winning a plethora of awards for being the year’s Best Luxury Car. So, we thought we’d take this opportunity to look at some of the design features that make the S-Class so special:

  • The S-Class includes a function designed to mimic a hot stone massage. The feeling of a hot stone is replicated by virtue of the seat having 14 separately actuated air cushions with an integrated warming function
  • The latest DISTRONIC PLUS with Steering Assist and Stop&Go Pilot means the S-Class can drive itself under certain circumstances. The system’s on-board cameras and radar sensors detect lane markings and other vehicles, enabling the car to brake, accelerate and even navigate moderate turns
  • The S-Class can be optioned with an innovative new perfume system housed in the car’s glove box, with a total of four different scents available
  • Headlights on the S-Class feature a mini-computer that controls state-of-the-art technology, such as ‘Adaptive Highbeam Assist Plus’ (which lets the cars’ high beams stay on continuously by masking-out other vehicles on the road) and ‘Night View Assist Plus’ (essentially night vision for the road)
  • The S-Class is the first vehicle to use ‘eyes’ to control its suspension settings, with a pair of cameras mounted on the windscreen constantly scanning the road ahead for imperfections
  • The new model S-Class is the first-ever ‘bulbless’ car. Instead the car deploys LEDs: 56 in its headlights, 35 in the rear lights, four for the rear fog lamp and around 300 to light the interior

All of this casts a light on precisely why the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class has successfully scooped so many accolades.

    There is no surprise that Mercedes Benz S-Class is awarded as the Best luxury car of the year. Air cushioned seats with integrated warming function, on board cameras, radar sensors, steering assist, perfume system, minicomputer, high beam assist, night view assist, bulb-less led. What else a luxury car should have? It’s totally a deserving car to be the best in the segment of luxury cars. Hats off to the manufacturer!!
