Mercedes-Benz X-Class Scores Five-Star ANCAP Rating

India's leading luxury auto brand, Mercedes-Benz, on Monday launched the new S-Class (S 350d and S 450) in India with a price tag of Rs 1.33 crore (ex-showroom). The 2018 Mercedes S-Class is a facelift of the W222 and sports a new front fascia including a wider grille, sportier front bumper and reworked headlamps.

Roland Folger, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India stated, "True to its legacy, the S-Class has emulated its global success in India and has had a phenomenal run in the country". At the heart of the new S-Class sits a new in-line, six-cylinder diesel engine that churns out 286PS and 600Nm of peak torque. Mercedes-Benz claims that while the output has increased noticeably compared to the preceding model, the new engine consumes up to six percent less fuel. The tail lamps also get new internals while the side gets a change with the new alloy wheels. According to Mercedes, the new S 350 d is the first BS-VI compliant vehicle to be made in India. The interiors have been further beefed up with two new 12.3 inch screens, new leather and wood options to suit your taste and new lightning options with 64 colors. It also comes with enhanced comfort options via the class-leading Rear Seat Comfort Package and high luxury, technology and entertainment system packages that enriches the passenger experience.

The German brand's first ute has achieved a five-star crash test rating from the Australian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP), with the organisation praising the manufacturer for offering automated emergency braking as standard across all models - a first for the commercial vehicle class.

The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class also features a raft of changes, both externally and internally, that reinforces its status as the benchmark among all flagship sedans. The S 450, meanwhile is powered by a 3-litre twin-turbocharged V6 petrol producing 372PS / 500Nm. The Active Distance Assist controls the distance to vehicles in front up to a speed of 210 kmph and if necessary brakes the vehicle with up to 50 per cent of the maximum braking power. Luxury features, including ventilated seats with body-massage function and the four-zone climate control, remains unchanged. The engine options are greener than before and the addition of the twin display setup and insane radar guided safety options make the new 2018 Mercedes S-Class a technological tour-de-force that continues to pamper the rich and the famous as they zip around the nation's roads.
