The new S-Class Coupé and the new S-Class Cabriolet
Two dream cars. As members of the large and successful S-Class family, the coupé and cabriolet will soon benefit from the same extensive innovations that have just been introduced on the saloon.
These include new or functionally considerably extended driving assistance systems, the modern control and display concept with Widescreen Cockpit and new generation of steering wheels, integrated ENERGIZING comfort control and the latest infotainment generation. Exclusive to both of the two-door models and part of the standard equipment specification are innovative OLED tail lamps. The new V8 biturbo engine in the S 560 Coupé is even more dynamic (combined fuel consumption: 8.0 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 183 g/km) and S 560 Cabriolet (combined fuel consumption: 8.7 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 199 g/km).
”With their unmistakable, exclusive design and high-class materials with extremely high value appeal in the interior, the new S-Class Coupé and S-Class Cabriolet embody our interpretation of modern luxury. On top of that, both luxury four-seaters feature the latest cutting-edge technology from the S-Class,” says Britta Seeger, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG with responsibility for Mercedes-Benz Cars Sales.
The further-developed design exudes even greater sportiness while showing off the high technical expertise. S-Class Coupé and Cabriolet feature front aprons with chrome-plated front splitter and voluminous air inlets. The dynamic looks are enhanced by restyled side skirts and chrome-plated twin tailpipe trims with a V12 look.
All S-Class models are equipped with the latest-generation infotainment system COMAND Online, starting a new era in digitisation and connectivity. Near Field Communication transforms the smartphone into a digital vehicle key.
With the Smartphone Integration package, Apple’s smartphone-based infotainment system CarPlay™ and Google’s Android Auto can be used. If a corresponding smartphone is connected by USB, the customer can, if desired, switch to the CarPlay™ or Android Auto interface.
Mobile phones can be charged as standard, wirelessly and without a telephone holder. Wireless charging works with all mobile devices (up to a screen diagonal of 15.2 cm) that support or can be retrofitted to support the Qi standard. The charging pad is integrated into the stowage compartment at the front of the centre console. In addition, Multifunction Telephony (optional feature) allows suitably designed mobile phones to be connected with the vehicle’s exterior aerial.
The new V8 biturbo in the S 560 Coupé and S 560 Cabriolet is one of the world’s most economical V8 petrol engines and consumes up to eight percent less than its predecessor. To lower the fuel consumption, four cylinders of the new V8 are deactivated simultaneously under partial load with the help of the CAMTRONIC valve-lift adjustment system (Coupé only). This reduces the pumping losses while improving the overall efficiency of the remaining four cylinders by shifting the operating point towards higher loads. The turbochargers positioned in the V of the cylinder banks represent another special feature.
