MERCEDES-BENZ S-CLASS

INTRODUCTION

Mercedes-Benz has finally launched the all-new S-Class in India with a range of updates onboard. The most interesting part of this car is not the design or the features, but the engine itself as this is the first BS-IV emission compliant car in the country with an engine under the hood complying with the new stricter emission norm that is all set to be implemented across the country from April 2020. Also, this engine will be able to run on BS-IV compliant fuel, which certainly makes the car attractive.

Launched in both petrol and diesel engine options, the new S-Class comes available in two different variants that are S350d and S450 powered by a diesel and a petrol engine respectively. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is the flagship sedan of the German luxury car manufacturer and since its introduction in India, the automaker has sold more than 6,700 units in the country. Now, with the new model launched, the number is expected to grow significantly. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class comes carrying a range of advanced technologies. Also, it gets a wide range of high-end premium features ensuring the best possible comfort for the occupants. In terms of design, the sedan looks very elegant at exterior and inside the cabin as well. Mercedes-Benz left no stones unturned in making the car very appealing looking for the occupants. Priced between Rs. 1.33 crore and Rs. 1.37 crore (ex-showroom, New Delhi), the all-new 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class certainly comes with the promise to continue the model’s long-standing reputation.

EXTERIOR

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class gets a very suave appearance. It gets a large front grille with shiny black look along with sharp headlamps with highly powerful LED projector lamps and integrated LED daytime running lights that not only provide great illumination, but adds style as well. The front bumper comes with a wide black slated look and there is a thin chrome trim as well.

At the side profile, 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class comes bearing a fluid look that certainly gives it aerodynamic efficiency. Clearly, the sedan follows the German luxury car brand’s strategy to emphasize on aerodynamic efficiency with less character lines. It runs on large and stylish alloy wheels, while there is a sleek chrome trim highlighting the door sills. A nicely curved roofline, blackened glass area, LED turn indicator integrated ORVMs add further style to the car.

The roof gets a glossy black paint scheme adding zing to the sedan and there is a panoramic sunroof as well. At the back, there are fluid looking LED taillights and a sculpted tailgate as well.

Inside the cabin, 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class gets a revised multifunction steering wheel with a range of control buttons mounted on it. The fully digital instrument cluster and a large touchscreen infotainment system are there with a look that make it appear like a single unit.

Apart from that, the touchpad at the lower centre console, circular AC vents on the dashboard are there. The steering wheel, dashboard, seats and upholstery come wrapped with high-quality premium leather. In terms of space and comfort, Mercedes-Benz S-Class comes offering a lounge like feel. The panoramic sunroof gives a very airy feel inside the cabin. The rear occupants get a plush seat.

Things to keep in mind before Buying Mercedes-Benz S-Class

 

When buying a new car in general one must look for things like body panels that are out of line, or load bearing beams that seem to have been damaged. The next thing to check whether the paint is original or it has been repainted, a quick check under concealed plastic panels is a great way to check for unmatched paint. Another thing to check for is underbody rust in humid or sea adjacent areas.

A good way to check if the car has been rear-ended is by checking the boot. Flip open the spare wheel cover and remove the wheel completely. If the car was repaired after an accident the floor will have visible signs as the surface wouldn’t be smooth as it would in an undamaged car.

In the end, always remember to check for complete documentation including service records. Also, do check with the insurance company for any past claims, which will make you aware of the accidents the car has been involved in. Last but not the least, get the car checked from a trusted workshop before closing the deal.
