Mercedes-Benz Malaysia Launches New S-Class Family

Mercedes-Benz Malaysia proudly launches the much-anticipated new S-Class limousine, along with the S- Class cabriolet, S-Class Coupe, and Mercedes-Maybach S-Class for an exclusively diverse and holistic collection of Mercedes-Benz S-Class automobiles.

As the most iconic nameplate in Mercedes-Benz history and the flagship for the brand, the S-Class family confidently asserts itself as a complete proposition to lead the premium automotive segment.

Mercedes-Benz S450L AMG-Line

The development work on the new S-Class was extremely extensive, with 6,500 new components. With a whole series of new features and functions, the S-Class remains the technological pioneer. The flagship from Mercedes-Benz was the best-selling luxury saloon in the world in 2016. Since 2013 the company has sold well over 300,000 saloons. Today there are six different S-Class body variants.

The new Mercedes-Benz S450L AMG Line is the embodiment of Modern Luxury and enters the market with comprehensive new features. Intelligent Drive takes another step towards autonomous driving. Active Distance Control DISTRONIC and Active Steering Assist now provide even more comfortable support for the driver to keep a safe distance and steer. The speed is now adjusted automatically ahead of bends, junctions or roundabouts, for example (country-specific variations may occur in terms of the individual functions).

MULTIBEAM LED headlamps enable extremely quick and precise adjustment of the headlamps to the current traffic conditions. The ULTRA RANGE main beams produce the maximum light intensity permitted by law, which results in the brightness of the main beams remaining above the reference value of 1 lux over a distance of more than 650 metres.

In conjunction with the new MULTIBEAM LED headlamps, the S-Class features three distinctive torches of light as an exclusive design element. The front bumper with pronounced air intakes and sporty looks is also new. The new LED lamps with crystal-look tail lamps stand out at the rear. They look like jewels and ensure a characteristic design day and night. A tail lamp light show that plays when the vehicle is unlocked and locked, as well as three horizontal pairs of fibre optics are also new.

In addition, the ambience lighting creates emotionally appealing contrasts and structures the interior into levels. 64 colours and ten colour worlds allow an avant-garde lighting display with spectacular colour changes.

Mercedes-Benz S 560 Cabriolet

As a member of the large and successful S-Class family, the cabriolet benefits from the same extensive innovations that have just been introduced on the saloon. These include new or functionally considerably extended driving assistance systems, the modern control and display concept with Widescreen Cockpit and new generation of steering wheels, integrated ENERGIZING comfort control and the latest infotainment generation.

Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe

Unleashing the beast has never been such an experience as it is with the Mercedes-AMG S 63 Coupe, with elegant and luxurious appeal in a pure performance aesthetic and execution. Motorsport-inspired design and technology meets the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe, itself a focused and purposeful bodystyle in which to present the premium ambience and unmistakable lifestyle proposition that is the S-Class – thus boldly stating its claim as the last word in Performance Luxury.

The AMG 4.0-litre V-8 Biturbo engine in the S 63 Coupé comes exclusively in the highest performance stage to date rated at 450 kW (612 hp). The peak torque of 900 Nm also represents a new maximum. It is available across a wide rev range between 2750 and 4500 rpm, and thereby provides a sense of superior poise. The sprint from standstill to 100 km/h takes just 4.2 seconds, and the fulminating acceleration continues until the electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h is reached (with AMG Driver’s Package: 300 km/h).

Mercedes-Maybach S 560

The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is refined and majestic, representing Mercedes-Benz more than simply as the inventor of the automobile, the technology leader and the pioneer of future mobility – but as the only choice for Ultimate Luxury. Where the character of tradition meets contemporary innovation, and cutting-edge technology exists in harmony with unrivalled craftsmanship, the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is the epitome of all these and more. As an Icon of Luxury, there is no finer way to travel and no experience more phenomenal and lavish than that offered by the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class.

Mercedes-Maybach stands for the ultimate in exclusivity and individuality. The luxury brand combines the perfection of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class with the exclusivity of Maybach. Now the top model from Mercedes-Benz is even more refined. A new radiator grille, optional two-tone paintwork and new exclusive colour combinations in the interior ensure an even more majestic look.

MAGIC BODY CONTROL with curve inclination function Oriented towards driving dynamics, this suspension adjusts to surface undulations before the vehicle drives over them. To do this, MAGIC BODY CONTROL combines active suspension with continuously adjustable dampers and ROAD SURFACE SCAN. With the aid of a stereo camera, the carriageway surface ahead is scanned precisely to allow the damping of each individual wheel to be optimally adjusted in advance to the impending bumps. The curve inclination function enables the body of the vehicle to lean inwards by up to 2.65 degrees on bends. This significantly reduces the perceived lateral forces while increasing subjective driving pleasure, especially on country roads.
