Mercedes-Benz S-Class for 2014

It is difficult to introduce a car from Mercedes, because they always raise our expectations and rarely fail to meet them. The S-Class series is one of the most loved series of cars in the world, and it is where this German brand shows off some of its best talents. Being a luxury power car, this type of Mercedes is every man’s dream, and you don’t need to have specific knowledge or preferences in order to admire it and recognize its potential. Today we’re going to talk about the latest edition, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class for 2014.

The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class, which has yet to be launched in stores, comes with some impressive improvements, both in power and safety; luxury is also not forgotten, and this car seems to have come from the future. One of the most impressive things about this new car have to be the electronically-controlled suspensions and the binocular-vision cameras from the windscreen. Everything the Germans put in a car is meant to make your driving safe and pleasant, and the two additions we were talking about will prevent you from taking on speed bumps with a shock. No matter what speed you’re at, the cameras see the bumps, and they automatically lift the front wheels so you won’t hit them too hard. For the driver, this means they won’t even feel the bump.

And if this wasn’t enough, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class will also recognize pedestrians ahead, and in case of proximity, will automatically start the autonomous emergency braking. The automated pilot function is better than ever, and the driver can even take his/her hands from the wheel and their feet off the pedals: the car will make its own route based on the car in front of it, which it will follow at constant speed until you make other commands. This function even allows the car to steer, make a left or right if necessary, and if there is a car in front of it following the sinewy road. Nevertheless, if you keep your hands off the wheel for more than ten seconds, the car will stop on its own, because the system is meant more as driver-support.

The main idea behind all these innovations for the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is to make the driving experience not only safer, but less straining as well. In case the driver is inattentive or misses something, the car can react up to one point. This Benz is so relaxed with is superpowers that it will probably see little competition in the following years. You can also purchase the car without these options, which on a S500L can cost up to £6,600, and the car will still be quite luxurious and complete; as for the S350 with diesel motor, it features options like two high-resolution screens, internet, navigation, air suspension,  and a complete LED lighting system.

As for more technical aspects, this S-Class is fitted with a twin-turbo V8 engine that can produce 455 bhp; it has a maximum speed of 155 mph, and can reach 62 mph in 4.8 seconds. It may not seem too fast, but remember it is a heavy, fully-optional car with leather seats and all the comfort one could imagine. With a car like this, speed is only an option for the business man who will afford it.
