The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupé offers an extra touch of luxury for those who want their sports cars to be comfortable as well as visually stunning.
The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupé passes the first test of any coupé, in that it is exceptionally pleasing on the eye. Its lines flow up from the low nose, up the bonnet and down the gentle slope of its roof toward the rear. The grille is studded with metal elements that give it an otherworldly appearance and the headlights even come studded with Swarovski crystals. Put simply, this is one of the most astonishingly luxurious coupés you are ever likely to see.
The interior of the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupé is an exceptionally relaxing place to be, thanks to a minimal engine noise that has led Mercedes-Benz to claim that it is possibly the world's quietest coupé. With an eye for important details, the S-Class Coupé is also exceptionally elegant, with an interior that makes the most of leather and wood. There is also a focus on forward-facing technology, with the well-proportioned dual-screen infotainment monitors giving you immediate access to all the details you could need about the car's status.
Engines and handling
As with other cars in Mercedes-Benz's S-Class, such as the Cabriolet, the new S-Class Coupé comes with a choice of three engines depending on which trim you select. Available with the S-Class Coupé are a 4.6-litre biturbo V8 that yields 450bhp, a 5.5-litre biturbo V8 which comes backed by 582bhp, and a twin-turbo 6.0-litre V12 which powers past them both thanks to a huge 621bhp. All handle smoothly, but Mercedes-Benz's Magic Body Control with Curve Tilting is a worthy upgrade to select, as it will lean the coupé into bends for extra comfort during high-speed cornering.
It's a mark of Mercedes-Benz's high standards of quality and attention to safety that the S-Class Coupé comes with so many safety features and systems as standard. It's a really rather generous selection, and in fact there are very few items – such as the head-up display and Night View Assist Plus – among the list of chargeable extras on offer. On the other hand, hugely impressive technology such as the Blind-Spot assist, Lane Keeping Assist, Distance Pilot DISTRONIC with Steering Pilot and Pre-Safe Plus, as well as others, come as standard.
