Mercedes S-Class Coupe Concept INTERIOR
The white instrument panel exudes sensual clarity. Its curved shape is
reminiscent of a whale fluke just before it re-enters the water. Like the
entire interior it is dominated by flowing lines: the upper and lower wave
create a clear structure.
The upper section of the instrument panel seems to float sensually in front
of the dashboard as a so-called top layer. The instrument panel seamlessly
transitions into the doors in a wrap-around design. The wavelike motion
continues in the door panels.
The ventilation nozzles, which among other places are housed as a
four-piece cluster in the centre of the instrument panel, have a futuristic
and highly detailed design: fins that route the air stream surround an
oblong hole. The ventilation nozzles are designed to add contrasts and are
made of a mix of white aluminium with a ceramics-like appearance and
brushed and polished aluminium.
The aluminium control elements have a functional and clean design, and
provide an exciting contrast to the organic and avant-garde shapes that
On top of the free-form surface under a reduced hood are the 30.7-cm
(12.3-inch) screens familiar from the new S-Class. They have an aspect
ratio of 8:3. In the Concept S-Class Coupé the fully glazed colour
displays are even slimmer and seem to float even more freely. As high-tech
elements they offer an exciting contrast to the sensual landscape of the
instrument panel. The colour scheme of the displays is bluish and
consequently sporty and modern.
A touch screen showing four world clocks is located on the centre console.
The driver can choose which clocks to display: To do so, the driver first
scrolls on a globe in the display and selects a time zone before a
drop-down menu offers the corresponding city selections. The world clock
concept was designed and implemented by designers and engineers at the
Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Center in Palo Alto, California, USA.
The central command unit on the centre console looks like a shiny jewel.
Its extremely high-quality "black diamond" surface creates depth of field.
The "black diamond" method uses the chemical CVD (chemical vapour
deposition) gas phase process to deposit a precious metal on a high-sheen
chrome surface at temperatures of 1000°C. The metal reacts with the
surface to form a layer that is highly scratch-resistant and has a high
The door panels of the Concept S-Class Coupé are made from aluminium.
Using computer algorithms delicate topographic lines were milled into the
metal and mimic the contours of the door-mounted control elements. This
creates an interesting light pattern with tiny sparkling highlights. For
this creation the designers drew their inspiration from rock formations in
Utah, USA. The progressive perforations of the loudspeakers were also
generated using algorithms and display some intelligent aesthetics of
Like the entire interior the seats have a highly dynamic and natural "flow
of lines" and continue the sculpted design of the shapes. The front seats
evoke associations of haute-couture tailoring because their sculpted shape
embodies sensual lines reminiscent of figurines in fashion design. In the
upper section of the seat the side bolsters envelope the occupant like a
collar. The vertical lines of the seats come courtesy of an array of
delicate piping. Piping on the side bolsters provides contrast and like the
perforation of the seat surfaces is a factor in the sporty-elegant
The choice of colours and materials plays with the extroverted contrasts of
anthracite and white as well as aluminium, and bolsters both the timeless
modernity and avant-garde nature of the design and the claim of the Concept
S-Class Coupé to ultimate exclusivity, high quality and perfection. In
this spirit the instrument panel and seats are made from supple calfskin.
The roofliner of the vehicle is made from hand-woven silk and consequently
underscores the exclusive character of the interior.

It's been decades since Cadillac produced the "Cadillac" of anything.
However, when car buffs dismiss the only American luxury brand left, they
fail to see Cadillac's march forward. 2002 brought the first RWD Cadillac
since the Fleetwoood. A year later the XLR roadster hit, followed in 2004
by Cadillac's first 5-Series fighter, the STS. Not everything was rosy. The
original CTS drove like a BMW but lacked charm and luxury fittings. The XLR
was based on a Corvette, which made for excellent road manners, but the
Northstar engine didn't have the oomph. The STS sounded like a good idea,
but the half-step CTS wasn't much smaller and ultimately shoppers weren't
interested in a bargain option. That brings us to the new ATS and CTS.
Ditching the "more car for less money" mantra, the ATS has been created to
fight the C/3/IS leaving the CTS free to battle the E/5/GS head-on. Can
Caddy's sensible new strategy deliver the one-two punch fans have hoped
for? I snagged a CTS 2.0T for a week to find out.
I found the outgoing CTS a little discordant, but 2014 brings an elegant
more aggressive refresh. GM's Art and Science theme has matured from
"cubism gone wrong" to shapes that flow and jibe with a larger grille and
softer creases. The 5-Series continues to go for elegant and restrained, I
find the XF and A6′s design a mixture of plain-Jane and snazzy headlamps
while the Infiniti Q5o and Lexus GS are going for flowing elegance.
The demur side profile continues with a simple character line to draw your
eye from front to rear. One thing you'll notice during that eye-movement is
the distinct RWD proportions that separate the CTS, E, 5, GS, XF and Q50
from the long-nosed Audi A6 and near-luxury FWD options. Out back the CTS'
rump is a bit less exciting but employs all the latest luxury cues from
hidden Exhaust tops to light piped
tail lamps. I was hoping Caddy's fins would be further resurrected, but
the "proto fins" on the XTS are absent. Pity. Obvious from every angle is
an attention to build quality absent from earlier generations with perfect
panel gaps and seams.
Unfortunately, the first thing you'll notice out on the road is the coarse
sound from under the hood. GM's 2.0L engine is no less refined than BMW or
Mercedes' four-bangers, but the difference is you can hear the engine in
the CTS. In fact, based on the overall quietness of the cabin (a
competitive 67 dB at 50 MPH), I can only conclude that Cadillac designed
the engine to be heard. I don't mind hearing the 3.6L V6, but most luxury
shoppers would prefer not to be reminded they chose the rational engine
every time they get on the freeway. On the bright side, because GM does not
offer start/stop tech, shoppers are spared the inelegant starts and stops
that characterize 528i city driving.
While I'm picking nits, the 6-speed found in the 2.0T and most 3.6 models
lacks the ratio spread and shift smoothness of the ZF 8-speed automatic
found in most of the competition.
The reason I label those flaws as mere nits is because of how the CTS
accomplishes every other task on the road. Acceleration to 60 happens a
4/10ths faster than an E350, a
half-second faster than the 528i,
a full second faster than a GS350,
and practically years ahead of the A6 2.0T. Part of this has to do with the
engine's superior torque curve and higher horsepower numbers, but
plenty has to do with curb weight. At 3,616 lbs, the CTS 2.oT is 200lbs
lighter than the BMW or Lexus, 400lbs lighter than an E350. The comparable
Audi A6 would be the front-wheel-drive 2.0T model with the CVT at 3,726. If
you think that's an unfair comparison, the 2.0T with Quattro is 3,900lbs
and does little to correct the A6′s front-heavy weight balance.
