2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class - DESIGN
In this video, Mercedes-Benz shows us how they designed the new S-Class.
Design: a modern sense of status and sensual shapes
People all over the world can recognise a Mercedes-Benz straight away. The
classic Mercedes face runs like a golden thread through the brand's
"The sophisticated design of the S-Class has always been an expression of
luxury and automotive grandeur of its era. And our new S-Class continues
this tradition. With its classic architecture and flowing silhouette, it is
a modern embodiment of sensual clarity. The design draws a line from the
sophisticated, progressive design idiom to the classic elegance of our
1930s cars - intelligence that speaks to the emotions. Stylish sportiness
and sensual forms in synthesis with timeless clarity and effortless
superiority make the S-Class a true design icon," says design chief Gorden
To underline the effortless superiority of the new S-Class, and its
ambition to lead, the radiator grille is now larger, upright and distinctly
three-dimensional in design. With its long bonnet, the flowing, domed roof
line and the gently slanting rear end, the new S-Class has classic saloon
proportions. The size and space have been fashioned in such a way that the
Mercedes-Benz S-Class appears prestigious, and the powerful roof line is
also in keeping with the car's sporty coupé-style intentions.
A character line descending discreetly from front to rear - the brand's
hallmark "Dropping Line" - elegantly structures the side wall and generates
additional dynamism even when the car is at a standstill. The subtly
created convex-concave effect of the entire flank gives rise to an
extremely powerful and elongated car body that demonstrates both excitement
and calm. The pronounced shoulder above the rear wheel adds further
emphasis to the car's athletic character.
The positively exaggerated surfaces and lines of the side wall on the new
S-Class generate excitement as they flow into the rear end. As well as
being elegant, the slightly slanting form has aerodynamic advantages.
Horizontal lines running from the boot lid to the bumper emphasise the
car's width when viewed from the rear. The hallmark signature of the
Mercedes-Benz designers can also be seen in the rear windscreen, which cuts
into the C-pillars. The upper area of the glass is rounded, lending it a
coupé-like character. The real highlights are the new-style tail lights
which are completely encased by the car body and, thanks to this solitarily
integrated styling and meticulously crafted inner workings, complete the
design right down to the last detail.
Mercedes SL-Class 500 test drive review Mercedes SL500 - Autogefühl
Testing the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, the 2014 Mercedes SL 500.
With its fine materials, the Mercedes SL gives you immediately a luxurious
feeling. You can see, this car was perfectly finished with great attention
to detail. In German cars, the clearance is always a big matter, the small
gaps between two elements -- which are supposed to be exactly even. We can
see this perfect symmetry here, for example. I do like the clear, elegant
design lines in the front. But the media panel looks not quite up to date
with its square plastic buttons.
The "Cockpit Management and Data System" COMAND can be ordered with
internet access. A DVD changer is also available as an option. I really
don't know, why anyone would still use DVD's in a car, but nevertheless.
One feature I like best, is the panoramic glass roof with adjustable
lighting, called MAGIC SKY CONTROL. The transparent roof switches to light
or dark at the push of a button. It had been tested in Death Valley in
California and the result was, that with dimmed roof, you reduce the heat
radiation by the sun about the factor twenty. How does it work? Imagine
particles inside the glass that stand in a clear row and let sunshine
through, as long as an electric current is induced. When I push the button,
the electric current fades, the particles get all mixed up -- and prevent
light and heat from shining through.
This sixth generation of the SL also offers that hard roof that can be
retracted into the boot using an electrohydraulic mechanism to save space,
which converts the SL in a few seconds into a roadster or a coupé. In less
than 20 seconds it opens or closes. The disadvantage is of course, that you
have to stand still. In that case, a soft top is better -- but not that
durable over the years.
While driving, the first things I immediately notice is the exceptional
riding comfort. You have a extremely smooth ride, no matter if you are in
the Sport or Comfort mode. Actually the difference doesn't turn out to be
big. I can just repeat, the suspension is maybe the most superior thing
about this car and sets standards.
The sportiness comes to play, when you push the throttle and circle it
around the corner. You feel a little bit of rear wheel spin -- that's just
super fun, and even works with stability control turned on.
The electronics just allow you that little spin to have the fun and still
keep being in control. However, you can also turn off the stability control
to be able to spin it around more freely. The SL is powerful in
accelerating and effortlessly superior across all speeds and nimble on
winding roads, like here in Southern France.
On the negative side, there is the indirect steering which lets it step
down from the league of pure sportscars. So sportscar lovers might be
annoyed by this, however, you should prefer the smooth ride of a grand GT
with sporty elements.
Mercedes always wants to stress its safety features, and actually, for a
roadster, there are a lot of them in it. For example, we have the blind
spot warner, giving you a signal when cars are approaching at the sides
from behind -- erm, does that actually happen when driving this car? ;-)
Furthermore, the so called Adaptive Brake firstly warns you when you are
getting to close to a car -- with a visual and a sound hint. That can be
practical, if you are overtaking a vehicle, turn your head shortly to take
a look around and in that second the vehicle in front of you brakes hardly.
In that case, the sound
catches your attention 1 second earlier and you can start the braking
process right away. Also, in an emergency braking situation the braking
lights are flashing to warn the car behind you.
And my favorite: The Active Parking Assist. It automatically manoeuvres the
car into a parking space using ultrasound sensors. We will see how it
The current SL500 has a 4.7 Liter V8 under the bonnet. With its twin turbo, it reached 435 horsepower -- and Boosts you from 0 to 100 kilometres or 0 to 60
miles in 4,6 seconds.
In Germany, there is also the smaller SL400 available, it recently replaced
the SL350 now delivering 333 horsepower from a 3 Liter
V6. If you are OK with that, you can at least save 20.000 Euros stepping
down. The SL 500 however starts at 120.000 Euros in Germany, at 80.000
Pounds in the UK and at 106.000
Dollars in the US -- where you can only get the SL 550 with 429 horse
power. No clue why it is called 550 although having less horsepower.
