Luxury carmaker Mercedes-Benz is all set to launch its all-new S-Class tomorrow in India. Initially, top of the line S 500 will be launched followed by the younger sibling S 350 CDI, which will make its way to India somewhere around the mid of this year. The luxury saloon will arrive as a Complete Built Unit (CBU) in the country.
The new S-Class is a perfect blend of luxury and engineering in order to make it an best-in-class premium saloon. In terms of comfort, the all-new S-Class offers utter convenience and richness.
The S 500 uses a twin-turbo 4,663 cc V8 petrol mill that pumps out a whopping 460 bhp of max power and peak torque of 700 nm mated to a 7 G-Tronic Plus automatic transmission. The engine performance is quite exemplary with the minute time of 5.7 seconds taken to cruise from 0-100 kmph.
As far as pricing is concerned, the next generation S-Class is expected to be priced around INR 1.5 crores.
