After the limousine, Mercedes also lifted the S-Class Coupe and Cabrio. Whether you order the luxury glider with eight or twelve cylinders remains a matter of taste. The AMG versions are surprisingly agile. But you still have to get used to an innovation.

Now take eight cylinders or rather twelve? You already notice – we are now moving in the area of luxury problems. And hardly a car stands for as luxury as the S-Class Cabriolet or Coupe from Mercedes. A six -cylinder should be considered for very few (although it also exists as an S 450, but only in the coupe and not in the convertible).Before it is about driving yourself, a few words to let driving, i.e. the part-automated driving functions of the S-Class. Keep your distance, steer, brake and start up the car automatically. However, you have to get used to a new operating concept, because as in the limousine, the old district lever has had its day in Coupe and Cabriolet. Instead, you control cruise control and automatic distance with small buttons and rollers on the steering wheel.

Speed limit? no problem

"The Americans wanted it that way," says S-Class chief developer Hermann Storp, shrugging-the old operating concept had poorly cut off in a customer satisfaction study. Unfortunately, fans of the old operating concept must be directed to the preferences of the Americans. The technology even looks ahead for their desire for speed limits: the automatic speed through the navigation cards and sets the speed on it. If a new limit comes, the Benz goes off the gas independently and gives subtle thrust again when more speed is allowed again.

We come to drive ourselves. No matter what is sitting under the hood: When it comes to the service, Mercedes could actually take over the old Rolls-Royce consumption and simply write "enough" in the data sheet. 469 hp and 4.6 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h in the classic S 560, 612 horses and 3.5 seconds on 100 in the impetuous AMG S 63 4MATIC+ or 630 PS and 4.1 seconds on 100 in the top model AMG S 65-Power always has plenty of Daimler flagship in the program. The top speed can be lifted to 300 km/h with the "AMG Driver’s Package". Of course, makes little sense for Americans.

Exhaust? At the push of a button it also goes hand tame

The S 560 is the ideal cruiser: reserved motor sound, cozy chassis. Not an intrusive guns from the exhaust, but at any time 700 Newton meters of torque made of four liters of displacement and eight cylinders in the hindquarters. With the steering wheel made of root wood veneer you conduct the five-meter-long luxury cruiser with stoic calm across the street, without you fighting with a completely insensitive steering as in the Rolls-Royce. Heated or chilled seat massage the spine at the push of a button. So you always get out of the Benz flagship a little more relaxed than you got on.

If you like to whistle around your corners with more tastes, you can’t avoid the only all -wheel drive in the Cabriolet: the S 63 4MATIC+. The eight -cylinder machine then also sits under the hood, but with a whopping 900 Newton meters of torque and a completely different character than the S 560. In sports mode, thanks to the flap exhaust, the car is powerfully out of its four tailpipes. The frequencies change in sports plus mode, the tubes becomes lighter and more aggressive. A sound enjoyment on the country road. If you do not want to make thick trousers while cruising through the city, you should choose the comfort mode-then the eight-cylinder whispers discreetly.

2.1 tons, well -laminated

To get back to the country road again: Here the AMG version of the convertible is definitely the best. Rarely was 2.1 tons of empty weight so well concealed. The permanent all -wheel drive with variable moment distribution brings the thick ship on course even in tight curves. The chassis with air suspension plus adaptive shock absorbers prevents any transferring, sub- or oversteer already in the beginning. If necessary, the system sends up to 100 percent torque to one of the two axes.You first notice that you are slowly approaching the borders on the whimpering of the tires without the rear of making any bitch. With all of this, the new 9-speed automatic system does its work at lightning speed and butter, even if you sort the gears yourself in the manual switching mode via steering wheel rockers-several gears can be skipped when switching back. The response behavior of the gearbox is so fast because the AMG version of the torque converter was replaced by a wet start-up clutch. As a cake of the cake, there is still the "Race Start" function as an icing on the cake.

If you take it more comfortably, the wide spread of the 9-speed automatic system ensures a pleasantly low speed level. At the power cocktail of the V8 aggregate you only have to sip a bit. Even consumption is then limited, although this still means an average of an average of an average of the AMG Cabriolet.

Windschotts have their pitfalls

By the way: whether you choose the convertible or the coupe does not make a big difference in terms of all -weather suitability. The convertible with its three-layer acoustic cod is quieter than some premium limousines in a closed state. And even with the top open, you always drive through the neck heating that can be set in three stages with a cozy heat cushion.With the top open, however, you can already feel the air flailing at the head. This is remedied by two winds: one behind the driver and one on the windshield, which as a spoiler drives a bit over the disc edge. Incidentally, this benefits from all of the funds. And the system can only work if you drive up the side windows at the same time – otherwise you will rather achieve the opposite.

It takes 20 seconds for the electrical cover to open, the whole thing works up to 60 km/h. It is annoying that the control unit is hidden for the hood under the flap in the center armrest. Every time you want to shut down all four windows during the trip or activate the wind sheet, you have to open the flap.Anyone who plays with the idea of getting the most luxurious convertible from German production must be reached deep into their pockets as expected. So far, Mercedes has been unusual for the prices and officially only sticks to the 630 hp V12 top model S 65 AMG, which as a convertible version is at least 257.457 euros costs. After all, it doesn’t hit the arms.The author traveled at the manufacturer’s invitation

  1. I do not think so
    that the Americans wanted the cruise control that way. I think that the controller is more responsible for it … is! LED lights did not come because bi-xenon light was so crap but because it saves some stosing rod variants and LED is much cheaper in shopping… To do this, you save the cleaning system. The cruise control was always perfect with the lever… too bad. Personally, I am also not a fan of the gear lever hiking on the steering wheel at automatic. But here too, saving seems to be too lucrative. Now we have overloaded steering wheels instead of overloaded center consoles… progress? Rather not !

  2. Congratulations
    Class! The cruise control lever at Mercedes vehicles has been the ultimate solution for years because intuitively can be used without any problems. The key orgy of other manufacturers on the steering wheel is different. With Q7 and Polo, the Daimler solution has now been copied. Now Daimler goes away from the self -set reference standard because American customers wish? Congratulations. When it comes to customer requests, the vehicles could be equipped with smell trees, bazaar utensils, shishas and real carpets. This certainly affects the taste of our new Germans, which, although no regular work has, have even more money for it and are now the main clientele. Admire customers at the dealer. I haven’t been buying a Mercedes for a long time!

  3. Who in the USA
    A car with hundreds of horsepower has probably not yet consciously noticed the limits. This Benz is just something for cruising and specifying on the strip anyway

  4. Poor Mercedes driver…
    But this will be very difficult to now get on the steering wheel buttons for the cruise control, or. To change Distronic….I want to have their worries. When the cruise control was moved from the lever behind the steering wheel to the steering wheel buttons in the Golf, this would be seen as progress. I liked it better, especially since many other manufacturers see it that way too. But nothing is worse for some people than learning something new, especially in Old Germany.

  5. The new S-Class convertible
    Mercedes has already built nicer cars, but as is well known, the design is a matter of taste and the one in turn can be argued excellently. What e8inem is getting angry again are the gratified consumption of one such cars. Because if you indicate a nomine consumption of 10.2l/100km – under 20 lkiters you will probably not get by in reality. about VW’s diesel complain.

  6. Beautiful vehicle
    There are no two manufacturers who can build this vehicle. Nice, perfect technology, like every SL. In terms of price, where you can buy a house in many regions of Germany.

  7. America First
    It starts that America first and then the rest. I don’t like the new curves at Mercedes at all. From angular to round and back, right every few years. With the new SL, the front and the rear failed and the dashboard is like a board. The steering wheel looks like a smart in all models and all the rest is bad design. Then rather the SLS or the old pagoda for summer, if you still have desire and money!
