Sales launch of the dream cars
Stuttgart. With their unmistakable design and materials with superlative value appeal in the interior, the new SClass Coupé and Cabriolet are the embodiment of contemporary luxury.
The further-developed design exudes even greater sportiness while showcasing the technical expertise. Mercedes-AMG, too, has updated its SClass Coupés and Cabriolets with a host of technical and visual highlights.
The S 63 4MATIC+ Coupé (combined fuel consumption: 9.3 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 211 g/km) is additionally available at market launch in the form of an exclusive Yellow Night Edition. The first new SClass two-door models can now be ordered at prices starting from 101,655.75 euros and will be in European showrooms from the end of January 2018.
As members of the large and successful SClass family, the Coupé and Cabriolet benefit from the same extensive innovations that were only recently introduced on the Saloon.
These include new or functionally considerably extended driving assistance systems, the modern control and display concept with Widescreen Cockpit and the new generation of steering wheels, integrated ENERGIZING comfort control and the latest infotainment generation.
In combination with the standard LED Intelligent Light System, unique headlamps with a total of 47 Swarovski crystals are available (3332 euros). 17 angular crystals form the flare-shaped daytime running lamps, while 30 round crystals make up the turn indicator lamps.
Exclusive to both of the two-door models and part of the standard equipment specification are OLED tail lamps (“organic light emitting diode”). With this technology, wafer-thin layers of organic materials are printed onto a glass plate and caused to illuminate.
Locking and unlocking the vehicle is additionally emphasised by an animated dynamic light sequence with subsequent dimming-up of the tail lights.
Numerous new or comprehensively revised assist systems are bundled together in the optional Driving Assistance package (2737 euros; standard on Mercedes-AMG S 65 Coupé and Cabriolet).
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 or junctions.
This is complemented by Evasive Steering Assist, a considerably improved Active Lane Keeping Assist and also the additional functions of the Active Emergency Stop Assist.
Also included in the Driving Assistance package is PRESAFE® PLUS, which additionally takes into account dangerous situations caused by traffic following behind, such as a rear impact.
This can be extended at the touch of a button to reduce turbulence in the interior. AIRCAP consists of two components: a wind deflector with a grid in the windscreen frame that is extendible by seven centimetres and an extendible draught-stop behind the rear seats with convex contours and stainless steel trim elements.
Also optionally available is a draught stop (773.50 euros).Another optionally available feature is AIRSCARF neck-level heating (773.50 euros). This extends the convertible season by enabling comfortable open-top driving even at low outside temperatures.
With this patented neck-level heating system, warmed air circulates around the head and neck areas of the occupants from the head restraints.
An innovation in terms of interior comfort and well-being is ENERGIZING comfort control with six programmes that combine different comfort functions into a harmonious package.
This enhances physical comfort and performance while driving and during a break. ENERGIZING comfort control is available in combination with the AIR-BALANCE package (440.30 euros) and the new extended ambient lighting with 64 colours and 10 colour worlds (476 euros) and costs 238 euros.
All S-Class Coupés and Cabriolets come as standard with the latest-generation COMAND Online infotainment system as well as the Smartphone Integration package.
This allows the use of Apple’s smartphone-based infotainment system CarPlay™ and Google’s Android Auto. If a corresponding smartphone is connected by USB, the customer can, if desired, switch to the CarPlay™ or Android Auto interface.
