Mercedes S 350 d 4MATIC L – One of the most luxurious options to travel

Even at first glance, our test vehicle for the December issue,
the entry-level model of the new S-Class – the S 350 d 4MATIC in a long version, reveals the segment in which it is at home: Driving comfort at the highest level.
Visually, the new S-Class differs only slightly from its predecessor. e most striking innovations are the revised radiator grille and the new LED light signature, which ooze sheer elegance. As expected the interior radiates noblesse. With the newly seamless merging 12.3-inch displays the cockpit presents itself much more elegant than in the previous model.
The experience of gliding over the highway with the 5.30-meter ‘ship’ is exemplary sup- ported by the latest generation of assistants. There is hardly any driving noise in the passenger compartment and the super comfortable multi-contour massage chairs with seat temperature control convey in connection with the Burmester surround sound system almost a holiday feeling. e space in the long version of the car is downright wasteful.
There newly developed straight six-cylinder diesel engine 350 d is with 286 hp and a torque of 600 nm no sprinter, but still has enough reserves to accelerate the four-wheel drive sedan with good speed of up to 250 km/h. Anyone who likes to use the gas paddle every now and then will experience that the 2.4-ton saloon easily consumes 8.8 litres, as we experienced in our test. An aspect that can be neglected in light of the comfort.
The pleasure to own a Mercedes S 350 d starts in the basic version at CHF 107,000. Our test vehicle reached with numerous extras a price of almost CHF 182,000.
