The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has been crowned as the CNB Premium Car of the Year at the 2022 carandbike Awards this year. The luxury sedan has set several benchmarks in this category, and with the introduction of the new-gen model last year, the Stuttgart-based carmaker has taken things to the next level. Other nominees in this category were the Audi RS e-tron GT, BMW M340i, 3 Series Gran Limousine, and the Jaguar I-Pace. However, it was the Mercedes-Benz S-Class that impressed the jury members to take the Premium Car of the Year award home.
Interestingly, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class was also bestowed with the Luxury Car of the Year title at the carandbike Awards 2022, and that just reinforces the kind of benchmarks it sets. There are two variants on offer - a diesel-powered S 400d 4Matic and a petrol version S 400 4Matic - which are priced at Rs. 2.17 crore and Rs. 2.19 crore (ex-showroom, India) respectively. Compared to its predecessor, the new S-Class is a huge step up, as it's now smarter, more feature-packed and a lot safer as well.
The cabin of the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class is simply luxurious. It gets seats that come with a massage function with 10 different settings to choose from. Other creature comforts include - a panoramic sliding sunroof, along with Burmester high-end 4D sound system, 30 loudspeakers and 8 resonators, and ambient lighting with over 263 optic LED lights throughout the cabin. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class gets up to five OLED displays, four of which will be touchscreen. This includes the massive 12.8-inch infotainment system, equipped with the latest-gen MBUX system.
