Mercedes S Class 2021 full new review

The luxury four-door Mercedes S Class 2021 is prepared for delivery in the UK in early 2021, and has been comprehensively redesigned around a new body that is claimed to be 60 kilograms lighter than the old S-Class despite added stiffness levels and is also claimed to be a greater refinemen


Key among the revisions to the Audi A8 and BMW 7 Series rival is a newly developed plug-in petrol-electric hybrid drivetrain. The new S580e model promises an electric range of up to 62 miles on the WLTP test cycle. That’s more than double the zero-emission range of its predecessor, the S560


Despite a renewed focus on electrification, though, Mercedes has confirmed to Autocar that it will hold true to a tradition started in 1992 by continuing to offer the S-Class with a twin-turbocharged 6.0-litre V12 petrol engine. It will be used by a new, yet to be revealed replacement for the Maybach S650 flagship


To bring it in line with its main competitors, the Mercedes S-Class: the flagship also offers buyers a choice between two optional rear-wheel steering systems, with the rear wheels having a maximum steering angle of up to 10 degrees of steering angle and a turning circle 1.9 meters narrower than the old car, at 10.9. Meters, lower than A-Class hatchbacks. The system also enhances high-speed stability as well as low-speed maneuverability

 



In an important step, the new S-Class, codenamed W223, will be the first Mercedes model to offer Level III autonomous driving capability at speeds of up to 37 mph. Although it was not planned since the start of the deliveries, the new Drive Pilot system, which uses lidar between a range of different sensors, will be introduced during the second half of 2021. It allows the driver to take long stops in traffic. Dense density and "proper sections of the highway", says Mercedes, although LED lights integrated into the steering wheel urge the driver to take control when necessary


The S-Class’s reputation for cutting-edge headlight technology is boosted by an optional Digital Light function. Made up of three main LEDs that, through refraction, achieve a resolution of more than 1.3 million pixels per headlight, it allows the projection of warning symbols on to the road for added safety

A further first for the Mercedes S Class  is over-the-air update capability to reduce dealer visits. Many of the developments in the new S-Class will also appear on Mercedes’ new pure-electric EQ S, aimed at competing with the Tesla Model S and forthcoming BMW i7

The existing S-Class Coupé and Cabriolet are not due to be replaced, leaving the saloon, in both short and long-wheelbase guises, as the only S-Class bodystyle. As with the outgoing model, it will sire various AMG, Maybach and Pullman derivatives


The Mercedes S Class has undergone a thorough redesign for 2021. While the smooth surfacing, understated sculpting and flowing C-pillar treatment remain familiar from its predecessor, the new model sports a bolder-looking grille, slimmer headlights and new horizontally mounted tail-lights that extend into a bootlid that is not so different from the current CLS’s


For the first time on the S-Class, Mercedes is giving buyers a choice of door handles: conventional grip handles come as standard and new flush-fitting electric pop-out handles are among a long list of optional equipment
