The all-new Mercedes S Class will be “Pure and Timeless”
Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store. Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!
Mercedes presented the Aesthetics S sculpture at the 2012 Paris Motor Show which was a glimpse into the 2014 Mercedes S Class.
Mercedes mentions that there will be a new concept car early next year to preview the next-generation Mercedes S Class.
Design chief Gorden Wagener claims that the design of the new S Class would be “pure and timeless, combining traditional and new design ethics.” Quattroruote.it today presents a close-to-production rendering of the all-new Mercedes S Class.
- The 2014 Mercedes S Class features the world’s first camera-based pedestrian detection system. The new system is more accurate than the outgoing radar-based system.
- It will also feature ‘Emergency Steer Assist’ which works with the pedestrian detection system to help the driver in swerving around an obstacle during an emergency.
- An upgraded version of Emergency Brake Assist system which can brake the car to a standstill from up to 70 km/hr rather than the current 30 km/hr is coming on the 2014 model.
- The all-aluminum suspension will have ‘Magic Ride Control’ system where cameras will read through the road and automatically adjust the suspension to improve ride comfort.
The production version of the new S-Class will make its debut later in 2013.
