Stuttgart. As members of the large and successful S-Class family, the coupe and cabriolet will soon benefit from the same extensive innovations that have just been introduced on the sedan. Among the highlights are the extended driver 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.
“With their unmistakable, exclusive design and high-class materials with extremely high value appeal in the interior, the new S-Class Coupe and S-Class Cabriolet embody our interpretation of modern luxury. On top of that, both luxury four- seaters feature the latest cutting-edge technology from the S-Class,” said Britta Seeger, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG responsible for Mercedes-Benz Cars Marketing & Sales.
The further-developed design exudes even greater sportiness while showing off the high technical expertise. S-Class Coupe and Cabriolet feature a front bumper 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 is also made more dynamic with new front and rear bumpers. Especially striking at the front end are the large three-dimensional air inlets, which each include two chrome-plated fins.
A fresh interior look is guaranteed by three new trim lines (High-Gloss Brown Burl Walnut, Satin-finish Ash Grey and designo magnolia flowing lines) as well as one new upholstery offering (designo Exclusive Nappa leather Porcelain/Tizian Red)
The interior of the new S-Class models is characterized by the two new high- resolution and brilliant displays, each with a screen diagonal of 12.3 inches. Visually, the two displays under one shared glass cover blend into a Widescreen Cockpit and as a central element consequently emphasize the horizontal orientation of the interior design.
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 center console. The all-digital cockpit offers the three visually very different styles: Classic, Sporty and Progressive. Depending on personal preference or matching the selected interior, the styles can be quickly changed from the instrument cluster and the central display. Alongside certain menu contents, such as trip data or fuel consumption, the driver can now additionally view the navigation data or the ECO display in the instrument cluster.
Both models have Touch Control Buttons on the steering wheel that respond to swiping motions like the screen of a smartphone. They enable the driver to control the functions of the instrument cluster and of the entire infotainment system without having to take their hands off the steering wheel; DISTRONIC and cruise control can be operated directly on the steering wheel.
The latest-generation COMAND Navigation offers fast 3D hard-disc navigation with topographical map display, photo-realistic 3D buildings and 3D map rotations.
Comprehensive information is displayed on the navigation map: in addition to real- time traffic density information it can e.g. include Car-to-X warning messages, the weather, filling stations including current fuel prices and free parking spaces.
