The official unveiling of the much-anticipated 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class has us wowed by its vast array of tech features and futuristic innovations. Scheduled for a Fall 2013 launch, as Melbourne Mercedes dealers, we will be eagerly anticipating its arrival. If you have had a chance to view the official photos that hit the web last week, you will know that the 2014 S-Class is all we had hoped it would be, and more.
The impressive new 2014 Mercedes S550 sedan seats five in style, with massaging, heated front seats, leather upholstery, and dual zone climate controls. Leather, wood, and alloy trim abound. A DVD player and video monitor offer entertainment options for backseat passengers, while a rear folding center armrest with storage offers support and comfort. Tech features start with increased visibility on the road provided by new eyes and ears in the form of sensors alongside infrared and ultrasonic systems. DISTRONIC PLUS® provides driver assistance features which help keep the vehicle moving safely and steadily, while the unique new Magic Body Control suspension system helps you achieve a smoother ride by responding to unevenness in the road.

DVD, radio, video, and USB connectivity can now be enjoyed by more than one person at the same time. A Frontbass system embedded in the vehicle’s frame and a Surround View system providing visibility for all 360 degrees give this sedan superpowers. Continue reading
