New Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe revealed ahead of Geneva Motor Show debut

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the S-Class Coupe production version, replacing the CL-Class.

This large, sporty and sleek two-door coupe was first previewed last year by the S-Class Concept Coupe in Frankfurt and as you can see the production model is not very different.

Compared to the S-Class Saloon, the Coupe is sleeker and lower. The front is dominated by a long bonnet and standard full-LED headlights with LED running light eyebrows. Rear shows us aggressive wide fender arches, new taillights and a bumper, while the panoramic sunroof with Magic Sky Control technology is standard, revealing two-thirds of the interior.

The interior is very similar to the saloon featuring a new “Super Sport” steering wheel, plus the analog clock is gone. There is also new metal trim and optional Bengal Red leather interior. The touchpad for entering data into the infotainment system is standard.

The S-Class Coupe is 5027mm in length, 1899mm in width, 1411mm in height and has a wheelbase of 2495mm. Wheel sizes range from 18 to 20 inches.

This new luxury two-door coupe can be optionally equipped with the MAGIC BODY CONTROL suspension system with curve tilting function. Additional technical highlights are the head-up display and touch pad feature. Optionally available expressive headlamps, each featuring 47 Swarovski crystals, produce a uniquely striking appearance.

From launch the new S-Class Coupe will be offered in UK as S 500 Coupe with a 448bhp 4.7-litre V8 biturbo. Buyers can choose between a standard rear-wheel drive, or optional 4Matic four-wheel drive for the first time.

Public debut is already next month in Geneva with first cars arriving in dealerships in the second half of the year.
