Step Inside the New Mercedes-Benz S-Class – Don't Worry, You'll Love It!

|

The all-new 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, which replaces the outgoing W221 model, is one of the most important cars of the year, for the entire automotive world. This is why the fact that the German automaker has released the first photos of the flagship's interior has really riled us up – we were not expecting them to show anything until (or very shortly before) the car's official reveal date of May 15.

Still, the photos are darkly lit and not all details are clearly visible – the ambient LED lighting is emphasized in this batch of images. The design of the interior is not a massive departure from what the old car offered, but it is a considerably more modern-looking place to sit.

Thankfully, it does away with hard edges and corners, and everything just seems to meld into everything else, but not in a bad way – far from it. The wood trim on the dash fascia seamlessly continues onto the door, forming a very noticeable curve, which improves the feeling of space inside.

It also features a huge 12.3-inch display, in place of the conventional analog dials, which it fully replaces. This was foretold by the W221 model, which already had a display instead of the regular speedo, and turned into a viewing module for the night-vision camera.

Aside from the usual assortment of luxury features, the new S-Class gets an active scenting system, which ionizes and cleans the air, then scents it before sending it into the cabin. Heated, cooled and massaging electric seats are now the norm, but the S-Class also gets reclining rear seats (43.5 degrees). What's interesting is that the rotational direction of the seat cooling fans can be reversed – this somehow improves the comfort level.

However, enough with the jibber-jabber. Check out the official photo gallery after the jump and see all of the above, and more, for yourself.

I have never been a huge fan of the newer cars' design, particularly that of the W221, but these pictures show an interior that is just stunning!

There's a little CLS mixed in with a lot of hints of Audi's current A8. There is a deep ambience imbued with subtle LED lighting - VERY classy. The pass. seat tilting forward and a leg-rest pulling out from the rear seat behind it is very Hyundai.

Actually it looks like to much is going on. And because of this, it appears to be an off brand trying to be luxury instead of being luxury (if that makes sense). But it is overkill which isn't luxury. Every piece in this car is luxury goods, but as a whole it just pimpess and and tacky in my honest opinion. I could very well be wrong, because the main interior space is darken. I hope I am.

and now Lexus and Korean auto makers will be rushing to follow up with something similar to this.

Wow! I'm...speechless! That is the one of the most gorgeous, sumptuous, and luxurious interiors I've ever seen! This presents a dilemma: up until now I have considered the A8 to be the my favorite in this class, especially in interior design and comfort. But now, I just don't know...

What's wrong with Hyundai? The A8L with the executive rear seat has the legrest too.

Mrhug3 said... »March 18, 2013

My thoughts exactly.

IFDU said... »March 18, 2013

I would assume that's the scenting system compartment. Before I thought about it I thought it was a coffee maker lol. Don't feel bad.

I also love the sweet two-spoke steering wheel design! Awesome!!!

Nice interior and all, but they should concentrate on making their damn cars reliable!!! Surprised that MB has never got a class action suit yet with the unreliable crap they produced, especially the last generation SL & the outgoing S Class. Get rid of the lousy ABC that plagued all their cars. Until the Germans can build a solid reliable car only then, will I consider them.

Gorgeous interior, the last S class frankly looked and felt cheap for its price tag, this one is beautiful on the inside for sure the attention to detail in this one is amazing. To me the XJ really had the most beautiful interior of this crowd the 7 to sterile, the A8 way to many details, the Xj has a classic high quality interior that saids class, and elegance with every view but this is very nice simple yet elegant classic yet very modern. Mercedes is back

Ambient light overkill

dumblikeyou said... »March 19, 2013

MB is now forced to cater to the nouveau riche and rap stars that summer in the south of France and think they're jet setters.

And your point is;...............?

Crap, like everything that has ever come out of the nazi-loving Krautland.

I saw one in black covers going dn the Hwy in so calif. The grille is much wider than prior model, I thought and First impression to me was Maybach. The vehicle was pretty big.
The shape of the tail lights were covered around the edges. but they were pretty bright
brake lights. The big benz swept lanes like a small car ,safely but quickly and turned right into a shopping center.Very smooth, no wallow.
