Feel Intelligent Drive

Al Haddad Motors, the official distributor of Mercedes-Benz in the Kingdom, has unveiled the latest addition to the Mercedes-Benz family – the all new S-Class.

During the launch, the company also made an exciting announcement about their newly joined partnership with Majestic Cars. This is the first-ever agreement where the authorised distributor has signed a corporate deal with Majestic Cars to carry a fleet of 20 S-Class, 8 E-Class and 1 GLS. Catering to the high-end customers in Bahrain, Majestic will be the only company to have the latest S-Class in its fleet.

The S-Class comes with many new inventions and has been proven to be the most desired luxury vehicle in the world. Among the features of the S 450 are:

• Intelligent Drive takes the vehicle to a new level of autonomous driving with driver assistance systems and substantially expanded functionality.
• The latest ENERGIZING comfort control gives the driver total control over climate, lighting and musical atmosphere, and enables a specific wellness set-up tailored to the mood and need of each customer.
• The high-quality interior is created with meticulous attention to detail and craftsmanship, featuring a new widescreen cockpit, and woodleather steering wheel as standard.
• The model’s exterior is complemented with crystal-look tail lamps, a new radiator grille, MULTIBEAM LED headlights and three distinctive torches of light as an exclusive design element.
• It comes with a V6 engine with a displacement of 2.996 and a rated torque of 270/367 (kW/hp).

The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class retains its title as the undisputed leader of intelligence, power, performance and luxury. The top-of-therange model takes another big step towards autonomous driving and elevates Intelligent Drive to the next level.

The new S-Class adds an additional layer of excellence by incorporating and enhancing a host of innovative driving assistance systems initially introduced in the previous model. These include the Active Steer Assist, which has been noticeably improved across its entire performance range, resulting in markedly enhanced customer benefits. The Active Breaking Assist, which detects end-of-tailback situations without space for evasive action, triggers a warning as well as automatic emergency stopping when required. The Evasive Steering Assist supports the driver in taking evasive action when pedestrians are detected in the danger zone in front of the vehicle. With PRE-SAFE Sound, a short interference signal is triggered ahead of any collisions expected to produce a loud crash, in order to protect the eardrum and inner ear from high acoustic pressures.

The new S-Class’ suspension control is further improved, as the stereo camera of the system now scans the road even more thoroughly, even in dusk and at speeds up to 180km/h.

Another comfort enhancement is CURVE, the curve-tilting function available in the S-Class sedan for the first time. The body tilts to the inside of the turn by up to 2.65 degrees, thereby reducing the centrifugal forces perceived by the passengers.

Seven new light-alloy wheels with diameters between 17 and 20 inches have been introduced on the new model. The front bumper with pronounced air intakes and sporty looks is also new.

Mobile phones can be charged wirelessly and without a telephone holder. The Burmester High-End 3D Surround Sound system with an output of 1,520 watts has been expanded with a speaker in the overhead control panel and two speakers in the sides.

With 64 colours, the ambient lighting offers a wealth of individual settings that add a welcoming effect upon entering the cabin.

Because the cockpit is fully digital, the driver can choose from three different display styles (Classic, Sporty and Progressive) and also configure the information and views relevant to them.

The new S-Class will be available in six model variants in the GCC markets: Mercedes-Benz S 450, Mercedes-Benz S 560, Mercedes-Benz S 560 4MATIC, Mercedes-AMG S 63 4MATIC+, Mercedes-AMG S 65 and Mercedes-Maybach S 650.

The Mercedes-Benz S 560 e, an upgraded plug-in hybrid variant, will be available later in the year. Call Al Haddad Motors on 17 785-454.
