The new Mercedes-Benz S 560 boasts a new V-8 engine that comes to the starting line with 345 kW (469 hp) and 700 Nm. The new biturbo engine is among the most economical V-8 petrol engines in the world, and consumes about ten percent less fuel than its predecessor. The new S-Class adds an additional layer of excellence to its “Intelligent Drive” by incorporating and enhancing a host of innovative driving assistance systems initially introduced in the previous model. These include the Active Steer Assist, the Active Breaking Assist, and the Evasive Steering Assist with PRE-SAFE Sound.
The suspension control in the new S-Class is further improved. The stereo camera of the system now scans the road even more thoroughly, even in dusk and at speeds up to 180 km/h. Modern luxury in the new S-Class is affirmed with the highest quality materials and uncompromising workmanship. MULTIBEAM LED headlamps and the ULTRA RANGE High Beam turn night into day. The Adaptive High-Beam Assist Plus, which is part of the Intelligent Light System, allows driving with permanently activated main beams without dazzling other road users.
Another Mercedes-Benz hallmark is the high-quality look and feel created with the meticulous attention to detail and craftsmanship in the interior of the new S-Class. The driver can use the steering wheel controls to operate DISTRONIC and cruise operation and control the entire infotainment system without having to take their hands off the steering wheel.
