Mercedes’ latest generation of its S-Class luxury sedan has been introduced less than one year after its international debut.
The all-new Mercedes-Benz S-class is a luxury sedan that was launched in India on 17th June 2021. Its starting price is Rs. 2.17 crore (ex-showroom, India). The S-Class is one of the most luxurious cars in the segment and it is currently available in the Launch edition trim. Let us find out the exclusive features it has to offer
Mercedes-Benz S-Class Exterior Update
The 2021 S-Class design is an evolution of the previous model and shares many similarities with the new E-Class design. Mercedes’ new “Digital Light” LED headlights are featured on the exterior of the new S-Class. The front bumper features larger air intakes, pop-out door handles, and wraparound LED tail-lights. Launch Edition also features the AMG Line trim, which has a sportier presence.
Mercedes-Benz S-Class Interior and Features
The new Mercedes 12.8-inch portrait-oriented touchscreen infotainment screen dominates the dashboard. It is accompanied by 12.3-inch digital instrument displays. The OLED touchscreen supports facial, voice, and fingerprint recognition and runs on the latest Mercedes MBUX (NTG7) system. The system boasts 320GB storage and 16GB RAM. This should ensure it will run smoothly for many years to come. The package also includes 64-colour active ambient lighting; premium Burmester surrounds sound system and massaging seats.
The S-Class also offers a bench-style seat with electric adjustment for the outer seating. Rear passengers have the ability to adjust the massage and leg-rest functions electronically. The chauffeur package adds co-driver seat adjustment from the rear, rear-seat entertainment touchscreens, and a central tablet controller to various in-car functions.
It is also worth noting that you have two interior color options – Macchiato Beige and Sienna Brown Nappa Leather upholstery. These will vary depending on your exterior color.

Two engine options power the fully imported Mercedes-Benz S-Class: petrol or diesel. The S 400d is equipped with the OM656 diesel 6-cylinder in-line 6-cylinder engine. It produces 330hp and 700 Nm of torque. The S 450 petrol engine, which is an in-line 6-cylinder turbocharged unit that produces 367hp as well as 500Nm, also has a turbocharged unit. Both variants come standard with Mercedes’ 4Matic all-wheel-drive system and a 9-speed automatic gearbox.
