The cars we drive say a lot about us. ~ Alexandra Paul
I still remember being barely 11 years old, when a friend got dropped to school in a car that had every kid in the yard drooling with envy. I was told the car, a long, stunning white sedan, was a Mercedes. And since then, I always believed Mercedes was THE car to aspire to own.
Over the years, there have been several players in the luxury automobile market in India. But Mercedes-Benz continues to be one of the prime choices for the Indian buyer because of its pioneering innovations.
Its S-Class, or ‘Special Class’ from the German ‘Sonderklasse’, stands for Mercedes-Benz’s luxury flagship saloon cars and is a hot favourite amongst luxury car enthusiasts.
One of the first to showcase the company’s latest features and design upgrades, the S-Class has even been ranked as the world’s best-selling luxury sedan.
Since 2013, the company has sold over 300,000 S-Class saloons globally. But the S-Class is not done adding laurels to its hat just yet! In keeping with the brand’s slogan “The best or nothing“, comes the latest offering for Indian markets by Mercedes-Benz India.
Ladies and gentlemen, say ‘Hallo’ to the new Mercedes-Benz S 350 (diesel) and S 450 (petrol), the finest combination of luxury, intelligence, advanced driver’s assistance systems and craftsmanship that you’ll see!
The new S-Class, made in India, for India, definitely packs a punch with its intelligent specs and stellar craftsmanship. Believe me, it’s got the specs to prove it!
You’d think I’m gushing, but these new additions to the S-Class lineup boast of cutting-edge technology that doesn’t just optimize your driving experience but simultaneously prioritises your safety too. All of this, cloaked in Mercedes-Benz’s quintessential luxury!
A sophisticated radar-based technology, coupled with Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC, Active Steering Assist, Active Braking Assist, Blind Spot Assist and lots more are what make this new S-Class one formidable model.
Of course, the design gets an upgrade too, with an advanced panoramic sliding sunroof, electrically operated roller sun-blinds for the rear glass and side windows, new LED taillights that’ll make your baby stand out from the throng, smartphone integration and oh so much more!
However, the crowning glory of this S-Class lies in it being India’s first BS-VI compliant car. Which means you’re not just driving around town nestled in luxury, you’re even keeping your fuel emissions in check!
‘BS’ refers to Bharat Stage Emission Standards prescribed by the Government of India to regulate air pollutants coming from internal combustion engine. The higher the number, the less polluting the engines are.
The S 350 diesel, fitted with a new inline-6, consumes up to 6% less fuel, and yet is the most powerful diesel engine ever produced by Mercedes-Benz India.
Even the petrol variant, S-Class 450, with its enormous reserves of power, ensures that the fuel consumption stays significantly low without compromising on performance.
Packed with all of the above and more, Mercedes-Benz India’s spanking new S-Class will have you clamouring to get behind its wheel!
This one’s all set to #LeadtheWorld and you’re welcome to join the joyride!
I’ve already given you a hoard of reasons to own this mean machine. Here’s another one. The Mercedes-Benz S 350 d is priced at INR 1.33 Crore, while the petrol version S 450 is priced at INR 1.37 Crore.
The brand has an impressive legacy that stands testimony to its steady dominance over the automobile industry over the years. In 2017, JD Power After-Sales Customer Satisfaction Index ranked Mercedes-Benz India as the highest in after-sales service satisfaction, with a score of 862.
Not to mention, as you drive by in your newest magnificent S-Class wheels, you’ll be the envy of everyone, and your car, the aspiration of many.
But honestly, do you even need more reasons? I believe you’re already SOLD!
