Design: a muscular, self-assured presence

The modified design reflects the effortless superiority and power of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Saloon. It is characterised by the more pronounced arrow-shape of the radiator grille, plus a new front bumper with a discreet light-catching contour and a chrome strip below the cooling air intakes. In future the exhaust tailpipes of all S‑Class variants will be visibly integrated into the rear bumper. The headlamps have bi-xenon technology as standard.

An even more dynamic look is ensured by the LED Light package with its striking LED arrays for daytime driving lights, indicators and marker lights (standard for S400 Hybrid and S600). These lend an unmistakable day-and-night design to the front end. The rear end is characterised by tail lights in an innovative LED design. Here too, a total of 52 LEDs in the form of a double-C form an unmistakable light signature.

Mercedes-Benz also makes more use of light as a styling element in the interior. In future customers who specify the optional ambient lighting (standard for S400 Hybrid and S600) have a choice between three lighting moods: solar (amber), neutral (white) and polar (ice-blue).

The 2010 Mercedes-Benz S-Class will be in the showrooms of the premium manufacturer's own sales outlets and authorised dealers from June 2009, and can be ordered now.
