Someone Cut Open A Mercedes S-Class Seat To See What’s Inside

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is one of the world’s most iconic luxury saloons, boasting the latest in comfort, safety and convenience features.

Mercedes gave the latest generation a facelift last year, which included a lot of fresh tech for the driver and passengers to enjoy. One of them is the Energizing Comfort Control, which uses the climate control, ambient lighting and even the seats in order to improve your mood.

But helping to relax your muscles isn’t the only thing the seats in your S-Class can do. Like most other premium products, they offer heating and ventilated functions, adjustable back/lumbar support, as well as safety features – both active as well as passive.

But what does it look like underneath all that plush perforated leather? What’s Inside borrowed a Mercedes S-Class and went on to discover just that.

Aside from things you’d expect, like the ventilators and foam, you might be surprised to learn just how many air pockets there are inside. Those little things inflate to massage your back, but not until you’ve already felt how comfortable the seats are thanks to all the cushioning and padding.

So, in case you were wondering, now you know what’s inside the top Merc sedan’s seats. Or you could have just read the brochure – but that wouldn’t make it to YouTube, would it?

      Someone? Or Border Patrol?


    Really could have read a brochure instead of cutting one open but I guess seeing it instead of reading about it is more interesting. Makes me wonder who’s going to pay to replace that seat.

      Or better yet that could have just had a seat to show that didn’t have any covers on it in the first place.

      well, i think its called “entertaining part”….

  • Mr. Crankypants

    yeah well it’s no Olds Regency. Red tufted loose pillow velour…that was luxury!

    it was heartbreaking but it was interesting at the same time!

  • Bash

    Interesting, Now can someone do that with a Rolls Royce seat?

    Butcher… These seats can be dismantled correctly and after inspecting them one can put them back together.
    This guy ruined the work of many other people who worked on this seat just for fun. Plain stupid.

  • Finkployd

    That’s one sharp knife

  • salamOOn

    That does not exclude what he wrote…

    • KareKakk

      Pre-production test cars will mostly be sold as is for parts, or wrecked by the factory themselves when the abuse is over. The workers down the line know this in advance, and are mentally prepared to see their work end up trashed by motor journalists, test drivers and endurance measurements. Nothing new there.

    “When it turns a corner, this, it sounds funny, but the car hugs you. This side of the seat will come out and hug you.”

    This idiot dissects car seats and doesn’t know that it’s called a side seat bolster?

    • KareKakk

      How many cars have active side seat bolsters? That actively inflates and gives you extra outside support when cornering?

      • lagunas3ca

        “The best or nothing.”

  • Steve

    It’s not about who paid for it. It’s disrespectful to those who built that seat.
    What is the point of pretending to be interested how something works but destroying it in the process without any reason.
