When it comes to luxury sedans, few manufacturers can rise up to the standards that Mercedes imposed a long time ago. However, the concept of luxury is constantly changing. Nowadays, even common models come with a heated steering wheel and ventilated seats. Nevertheless, Mercedes has some standards to uphold, so it must come up with an innovative way of redesigning luxury. And what better way is there to do this than to redesign a masterpiece: the all-too famous S Class sedan. This car has suffered some modifications over the years, but the Mercedes’ dedication for combining luxury and performance has remained unchanged. That being said, lets see what the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class has to offer.
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is powered by an S550 5.5 litter twin turbo V8 engine that delivers 455 horsepower. Speed junkies can opt for the S63 AMG 4MATIC model that delivers 577 horsepower. The car also comes with state of the art chassis control features such as a low-speed autonomous driving mode. Another interesting feature is the steering which keeps the car centered on the road. This model even comes with high-tech technologies that can anticipate road bumps and believe it or not, the car adjusts its suspension accordingly.
While the classic, elegant lines of the S class were not meddled with, the 2014 model comes with some modern design improvements. All exterior panels are made from aluminum, an element which contributes to making the car lighter than normal. Furthermore, the whole lighting system uses only LED lights. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class also comes with an elegant grille which features flowing details. The overall exterior has a strong athletic character, featuring emphasized shoulders on the sides and defined rear shapes. The front is masculine and daring.
As we mentioned about, the most common sedans nowadays come with heated steering wheels and ventilated chairs. But Mercedes has figured out a way to bring luxury to the next level. The most luxurious things that the interior of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class comes with are the rear seats, which can now simulate a hot stone massage. Yes, plain massage chairs are too mainstream for Mercedes who wants to turn the back of people’s cars into exotic spas apparently. All jokes aside, those chairs are worth every cent. We also like the heated armrests and the upgraded climate control system which now includes a perfuming feature. You might want to pick an exotic aroma, so that the rear massage chairs can actually deliver the spa experience. The car’s interior also features soft leather covers, luxurious wood coats and metal trim covers.
