The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class has not yet been officially revealed in its entirety, but the folks from Stuttgart have peaked our interest by releasing a series of interior images and information. Mercedes has gone above and beyond any interior standard imaginable. Many of the new S-Class components, such as the steering wheel, are put together by skilled hands of craftsmen. The level of interior design, material quality, and execution is second to none. Ever since we spied the new S-Class testing in Colorado last year, we wondered what ground breaking technologies will it bring this time. Now we are getting a glimpse into the interior features of the new S.
The 2014 model brings features such as advanced massaging seats, and heated arm rests. It also has a ground breaking dual-view center dash screen. This monitor allows two different channels to be viewed on the same screen at the same time. The driver may see the Navigation screen, while the front passenger could enjoy a movie at the same time. This technology is based on the viewing angle, and still sounds like science fiction.
However, the feature that catches the most attention is Mercedes’ new “Active Perfuming System”. This feature comes as part of the “Air Balance” package which includes special air filtering with ionization. The Active Perfuming System allows for interior smell customization via different smell cartridges. The user can manually turn it on or off and adjust its intensity. Mercedes says that this system will not permanently change the smell of your S-Class and that the perfume molecules do not attach themselves to fabric or clothing. This way, you can enjoy your favorite smell while in transit, but you will not smell like your Mercedes once you get out.
The 2014 Mercedes S-Class will have a longer wheel-base limousine version, ultimate luxury and comfort, and likely a stratospheric price tag to go along with it. The limousine version will challenge the likes of Bentley and Rolls-Royce, and also give a choice to those people who are mourning the demise of the Maybach brand. We cannot wait for this car to be properly revealed.
