Mercedes-Benz has picked the diesel version of the new S-Class luxury saloon for official introduction in the Thai luxury car market.
The S 350 d is available in two trim levels – the Exclusive priced at Bt6.69 million and AMG Premium priced at Bt7.19 million. Reservations can be made online at Mercedes-Benz dealers.
Being at the top of the Mercedes-Benz lineup means that the S-Class, the world’s top-selling luxury saloon, gets the latest and most advanced features available, whether in terms of communications, luxury or safety.
Featuring the “Sensual Purity“ design concept, the exterior of the new S-Class appears clean and more dynamic, as well as matching with the design of the smaller models previously launched.
The interior is highlighted by the 12.3-inch high-res instrument cluster and 12.8-inch OLED touchscreen featuring MBUX7 interface (operates via voice, touch or gesture) and fingerprint recognition.
The rear seats are of high importance in a saloon like the S-Class – they come with electric adjustment as well as six massage functions.
There’s also an MBUX high-end rear seat entertainment with a 7-inch tablet-type touchscreen, plus two 11.6-inch displays and a 15-speaker Burmester sound system.
The rear passengers also get frontal airbags for the first time in the 2021 S-Class. Meanwhile, the intelligent safety systems are more intelligent than ever (for example Evasive Steering Assist and Emergency Stop Assist systems).
The S 350 d is powered by a 3.0-liter diesel engine with dual-stage turbochargers capable of producing 286hp and 600Nm, mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission. Acceleration from 0-100km/h takes 6.4 seconds and the top speed is claimed at 250km/h.
Roland Folger, president and CEO of Mercedes-Benz (Thailand) Company Limited, said, “We know that many Mercedes-Benz customers in Thailand are looking forward to the launch of this latest generation of our S-Class, an ultimate luxury saloon that provides the best driving experience in terms of luxury, comfort and safety. Under the integration of the most advanced automotive innovations that put focus on user, every detail of this vehicle’s design is meticulously refined. Particularly, the mobile connected experience via wireless internet in the vehicle. Mercedes-Benz has partnered with local 4G LTE service provider in Thailand to allow customers who purchase a Mercedes-Benz vehicle with our authorized dealers to be able to have the best driving experience.”
