Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe 2015 Reviews
Stylistically self assured tasteful sportiness and existence, exclusive appointments - the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe joins the classic proportions of a big, sporty coupe with modern high-end and state-of-the art technology. With the MAGIC BODY CONTROL suspension system with curve tipping function, the breathless two door coupe can be equipped as a world premiere. Each featuring 47 Swarovski crystals, optionally accessible expressive headlamps, create a distinctively dramatic look.
"The breathless layout of the Concept S-Class Coupe marked by sporty-classic percentages and sexual innocence is transferred to the series production S-Class Coupe essentially unaltered. The big coupe has been the ultimate pinnacle of our model range and that is why it is currently called the "S Class" again."
On country roads specifically, this means greater driving enjoyment and ride comfort for our customers." The new S-Class Coupe may have its world premiere distribution to car dealers is scheduled for the second half of 2014. The two door car can be obtained with a 4663 cc V8 biturbo engine. The sporty motoring experience is considerably improved by the mental sound generated by the exhaust system.
For series production automobiles the Coupe introduces a further world with the curve tipping function: The Coupe leans into curves in a way much like skier or a motorcyclist. On country roads particularly, the new curve tipping function improves motoring relaxation and enjoyment.
Like the S Class Saloon, the new Coupe can be obtained with numerous new support systems which make driving safer and more comfortable. CRASH PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS features an added function besides the adaptive brake helper, which supplies crash protection from a rate of 7 km/h: if there remains a risk of crash and the driver does not react, the system can perform an autonomous braking manoeuvre at rates of up to 200 km/h, thus reducing the severity of crashes with slower or halting vehicles.
Numerous gear characteristics that are elective can be found to make the inside of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe extremely lavish and comfy. By way of example, the ATMOSPHERE-BALANCE bundle such as the parts "fragrancing" and "ionisation" is accessible, as is the electrical armrest heat as a part of the Heat Relaxation bundle. If the vehicle has the discretionary Seat Comfort bundle, the front seats feature the ENERGIZING massage function according to the hot-stone principle.
In cooperation with high end audio specialists Burmester, two particularly high-value audio systems are developed: the Burmester(registered company) surround sound system and the Burmester(registered company) High End 3D surround sound system.
Layout: sexual innocence at its most beguiling
The objective will be to create surfaces that are smooth and clear contours while radiating psychological allure that showcase high tech. The sexual innocence is represented in the core layout values of emotion, tradition and progressivism. The guiding star is made up by these, and are accentuated otherwise according to the version. Mercedes Benz creates a bridge between modernity and the avant garde, between progressivism and tradition. Each version string has an extremely particular nature and an assigned job, according to the characteristics on which the layout concentrates. And yet a Mercedes Benz is consistently recognisable as a Mercedes Benz. Because in addition to featuring new developments that are stylistic, and in the interests of keeping tradition alive, the designers bring from a gene pool of styling characteristics typical of the brand.
"Our new S-Class Coupe is among the most stunning coupes of times, symbolizing the most revolutionary aesthetic deviation from its forerunner," says Gorden Wagener, Vice President Daimler AG. "The sensuous fluid shape in interaction with the clear progressive design language forms an ideal symbiosis and expresses our approach of animal innocence with pithy preciseness."
The outside: fluid profile of proportions that are perfect
The fluid profile of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe embodies animal in a way that is modern. It's characterised by typical rear wheel drive proportions, emphasised by the hallmark Mercedes line that was dropping. With a wheelbase of 2945 millimeters, the Coupe is 5027 millimeters long, with a height of 1411 mm. and a width of 1899 mm
Its convex and concave surfaces that are modelled add the S-Class Coupe a nature that is sensuous. The sculpted look brings it classic sophistication that forms an ideal symbiosis with the modern- layout idiom that is progressive.
The view from your side is marked in keeping with the psychological nature of the vehicle by the dropping line. The lines are intentionally reduced to the principles. This creates a purity that is sexy, classic.
The creative interaction of varied layout components gives the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe a first-class, self confident front: in the middle of the vehicle front end is the additional-developed three dimensional diamond radiator grille, whose construction is explained by rectangular, chrome-plated components.
The complete-LED headlamps with their iconic eyebrows as daytime running lamps give it an incredibly self-assured identifying and gaze. With a semicircular counter-curve the eyebrows have been further refined on the S-Class Coupe. In combination with the normal LED Intelligent Light System, exceptional headlamps with no less than 47 Swarovski lead crystals can be found. 17 angular crystals form the flare-formed daytime running lamps -formed crystals.
The side profile is identified by the dome- the frameless doors and shaped stretched roof line. A refined 3D constant chrome frame encompasses the glass spaces which are uninterrupted by B pillars. This underscores the Mercedes- coupe that is typical appearance.
A muscle above the back axle going in the side wall creates a feeling of lightness and dynamic spirit even.
The back end with wide shoulders, its surfaces and identifying character lines rounds off the emotive entire look. It enables the boot lid to be made particularly slick of this type. The three-pointed star is to say, freestanding and can therefore be made more notable for greater effect. In addition it pivots outwards so that you can find the discretionary 360deg camera and the reversing camera in a elegantly practical way.
The arrangement of the LEDs in two flat rows in the two piece tail lamps shows cutting edge technology and underscores the sporty nature of the vehicle back, careful focus on detail and the superior value of the automobile. Function and form fuse into an unity that is perfect. Part of the functions that were light is found in the wings, the other in the boot lid. This arrangement that is characteristic makes the vehicle exceptionally recognisable by nighttime, also.
The two-component back fender underscores the sportiness shown by the front layout. The diffusor, painted in high-sheen black and the demands made by aerodynamics and by design, meet in equivalent measure. Below it there's, as in the front fender, a flat wing in silver appearance. Incorporated in the diffusor are the superior-quality tailpipes.
The S Class Coupe features a panoramic roof going over two thirds of the whole vehicle roof; with a surface area of around 1.32 m2, it seems nearly 150 percent bigger than on the predecessor version. MAGIC SKY CONTROL helps it be possible to change the foil of the roof from light to dark, at the push of a button. When light, the roof is nearly totally clear and enables an open air encounter in the coldest weather. When dark, light transmission i.e. the percentage of outdoor light that's let through into the inside, is reduced to less than 1% and therefore efficiently decreases heating up of the vehicle. Moreover, it's possible to shade the inside entirely by means of a roller blind.
The inside: modern high-end as avant garde design
The recent S Class Coupe's interior design is an expression of the Mercedes Benz layout idiom - purity that is sexual. An enthralling blend of parts and sculptural sensuous volume elements, and the clear geometry of its fundamental architecture create an avant garde design idiom.
The dash of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe fascinates with its magnificent architecture, giving rise to your vehicle of exceptional character in the upper coupe section. The dash is broken up into an extremely clear top-layer section having an grand "wraparound" effect going to the doors, and an exceptionally low, sculptural "floating" lower section. This structure that was eye-catching was made possible by repositioning the airbag to an entirely new place that was low. This theory empowers the big, two-component wide-screen format TFT display to be put in a notable "hovering" place before this trim surface. Moreover, it's stylishly emphasized with the ambience lighting corona. Under the display, the raised center console that is sporty goes to the vehicle back. Armrests and all lids are covered in leather.
Using colour blends, the finest materials, surfaces and seam layouts leads towards reaching an auto inside that is truly exclusive. Air ports, switches, belt extender rosette and trim components are in electroplated "Silver Shadow". This improves the three dimensional effect of the surfaces and gives a specially high worth appeal to the trim components.
The touchpad (elective) can be discovered, with its black high-sheen surface and chrome-look environment. As on a smartphone, all the headunit functions are allowed by the touchpad to be controlled using finger gestures. The touchpad additionally allows special characters, numbers and letters to be entered in handwriting - in any of the languages of the head unit.
Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe 2015 back
Both the back seats and the front have a sporty nature that was distinct, the two back seats were created as individual seats. The bundle that is Exclusive optionally contains seats with a stunning diamond backstitching design on seating surfaces and backrests. The front seat seatbelts are incorporated in the back side panelling without interrupting the waistline open; seatbelt extenders make them readily accessible for the seat occupants.
There's a fluid transition between the back side panelling and the doors, emphasising the wellbeing quality of the vehicle.
New interior colours including porcelain, saddle brown and Bengal crimson enable individualisation of the inside. The like wellness character is provided by the typical ambience lighting with several lighting dispositions. The customer can select from seven lighting dispositions.
The system tells about rate limitations, vehicle rate, navigation directions and driving support system messages.
The technical foundation with this system is a a full and a specular optics system -colour screen module with resolution using with high power LEDs. The resolution of over 60 pixels per degree ensures a needle-sharp picture. An unique light detector situated near the top border of the roof mechanically adjusts the brightness of the head-up display to the outdoor lighting conditions.
Lower transversal forces: active curve tipping function
With the curve function that is tipping the Coupe introduces an additional world first for series production automobiles: The curve tipping function makes the Coupe lean into curves in a way much like skier or a motorcyclist. The lateral acceleration is reduced similar and passengers sit steadfastly. On country roads particularly, the new curve function that is tipping improves motoring relaxation and enjoyment. The thing is not to create a more enjoyable motoring experience, although to achieve higher rates.
With respect to the curve the curve tipping function changes the foundation point of each strut that is individual. The advanced suspension system finds yet another transversal acceleration sensor, and curves using both a stereo camera noting the curvature up to 15 metres ahead. The curve tipping function can be chosen as one of three drive styles using the ABC switch; it's active in the rate range.
Emotive-sporty sound: exhaust system
The emotive sound makes a critical contribution. The stronger audio elements ensure a completer, more sporty sound. In the placed back silencer of the double-pipe exhaust system there are two flaps which can be opened and shut pneumatically with respect to the engine rate.
The exhaust gases are conducted through the back silencer along another route to ensure the vehicle sound becomes more strong when the flaps are open. The drive programme chosen is depended upon by the changing stage of the flaps - in the E programme the flaps open in the S programme. The power of the S-Class Coupe engine's sound can be heard, when it begins.
A long convention: big coupes from Mercedes Benz
Version set C 216's SEC coupes, which stayed in the programme -based automotive brand and 74,000 that was through were sold, were based on the S Class of 1981. At the Geneva Motor Show the successor version (version chain C 140) was presented in 1992, also featuring with a 290 kW (394 hp) twelve-cylinder engine as a S600 Coupe. It was to function as the automobile where the Electronic Stability Program ESP(registered company) had its world premiere. Another forefather of the recent S-Class Coupe observed its world premiere in March 1999 under this particular name. With pioneering inventions like active ABC suspensor (Active Body Control) and bi-xenon headlamps new standards were set by this two door auto.
Innovative layout and Supreme exclusivity combined with state of the art technology that was trendsetting were joined in the last CL Class (2006). This luxury coupe opened up a fresh dimension of vehicle security with the launch of the PRE-SAFE(registered company) brakes. Beyond this, Mercedes inventions including the Intelligent Light System with PRE and five light functions -SAFE(registered company) preventive occupant security were also part of the conventional gear of the vehicle.
