Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupé

Mercedes-Benz unveils S-Class Coupé, Cabriolet

DUBAI, 17 days ago

Mercedes-Benz is adding to its S-Class portfolio with the latest Coupé and Cabriolet, with both the two-door models featuring extensive elements from the latest sedan.

Features include intelligent driving assistance systems (optional in Levant), Widescreen Cockpit, integrated ENERGIZING comfort control (available as standard in GCC and optional in Levant) and the latest infotainment generation.

Both models will be the first cars to have the innovative and visual OLED tail lamps. The new V8 biturbo engine in the S 560 Coupé is even more dynamic (combined fuel consumption: 8.0 l/100 km combined CO2 emissions: 183 g/km), as is the S 560 Cabriolet (combined fuel consumption: 8.7 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 199 g/km).

“With the addition of the S-Class Coupé and S-Class Cabriolet to the family, we are able to offer our customers the luxury, performance and intelligence of the sedan, combined with the dynamic sporty character of the Coupé and Cabriolet. We are confident that the addition of the two models will speak to the desires of our customers,” said Lennart Mueller-Teut, head of Marketing & Communications of Mercedes-Benz Cars Middle East.

The enhanced design exudes greater sportiness that boasts the models’ high technical expertise. Both the S 560 Coupé and S 560 Cabriolet feature front aprons with chrome-plated front splitter and voluminous air inlets. The dynamic looks are enhanced by restyled side skirts and chrome-plated twin tailpipe trims with a V12 look.

The AMG Line - available for the S 560 models as standard in GCC and optional for Levant - is also made more dynamic with new front and rear aprons. Especially striking at the front end are the large three-dimensional air inlets, which each include two chrome-plated fins.

Innovative OLED tail lamps

Innovative OLED tail lamps are a new feature of the S-Class Coupé and S-Class Cabriolet, and will be the first cars to have these technologies. With the OLED System technology, wafer-thin layers of organic materials are printed on a glass plate and made to illuminate.

Luxury lounge with Widescreen Cockpit

A fresh interior look is guaranteed by three new optional trim lines (high-gloss brown burr walnut wood, satin-finish grey ash wood and flowing lines designo magnolia wood) as well as the new interior colour concept, porcelain / tizian red.

Like the instrument cluster, this Widescreen Cockpit contains a large display with virtual instruments in the direct field of vision of the driver, as well as a central display above the centre console. The all-digital cockpit offers the three visually very different styles "Classic", "Sporty" and "Progressive".

ENERGIZING comfort control for greater well-being

ENERGIZING comfort control, standard in GCC and optional in Levant, links various comfort systems in the vehicle together. It systematically uses the functions of the climate control system (including fragrancing) and the seats (heater, ventilation, massage), the panel heating as well as lighting and musical atmospheres, and enables a specific wellness set-up tailored to the mood and need of the customer. As a result, well-being and performance levels are enhanced.

New infotainment systems

All S-Class models are equipped with the latest-generation infotainment system COMAND Online, starting a new era in digitisation and connectivity.

As part of the standard package, mobile phones can be charged wirelessly without the need for a telephone holder. Wireless charging works with all mobile devices (up to a screen diagonal of 15.2 cm) that support or can be retrofitted to support the Qi standard. The charging pad is integrated into the stowage compartment at the front of the centre console.

New driving assistance systems

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).

New V8 biturbo with cylinder shutoff

The new V8 biturbo in the S 560 Coupé and S 560 Cabriolet is one of the world's most economical V8 petrol engines and consumes up to eight percent less than its predecessor. To lower the fuel consumption, four cylinders of the new V8 are deactivated simultaneously under partial load with the help of the CAMTRONIC valve-lift adjustment system (Coupé only).

This reduces the pumping losses while improving the overall efficiency of the remaining four cylinders by shifting the operating point towards higher loads. The turbochargers positioned in the V of the cylinder banks represent another special feature. The new V8 has an output of 345 kW (469 hp) with a peak torque of 700 Nm. – TradeArabia News Service
