Pictures have been released of a 1:18 scale model of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-class, which is scheduled to have its official introduction next week. This scale model is a direct preview of the new luxury saloon. The automaker made the newest 'W222' S-class more luxurious in order to fill the empty space that Maybach left with an extra-long-wheelbase 'Pullman' variant that’s meant to be at the top of the range.
This will compete with models such as the Rolls-Royce Ghost and Bentley Mulsanne. In other parts of the lineup, a coupé will replace the CL.
A cabriolet will also be introduced to offer the ultimate in luxury when it comes to open-top vehicles. The S-class will feature an entire array of new technology.
It will get two 12.3in TFT screens as well as a new Thermotronic climate control that comes with an ionising component to remove viruses and spores. Offered as standard equipment are reclining seats and a 1540w Burmester stereo.
For the first time in Britain, the Mercedes S-class engine lineup will be available with an S250 CDI. The 2.1-litre diesel engine has an output of 201bhp and 369lb ft of torque. The company will offer other V6 and V8 petrol models. It’s also likely that there will be AMG performance models offered.
