Mercedes Benz S-Class Diesel models are available. It’s not unusual to associate diesel power with Mercedes Benz saloons, because for years they have been in the business of making comfortable, reliable sedans with diesel efficiency. The more modern Mercedes Benz Diesels are some of the most advanced and efficient. Owning a new Mercedes Benz S-Class Diesel has nothing to do with chattering old oil burners at all. Yes, the older Mercedes Benz sedans did have older diesel engine technology and did chatter, but I knew some owners of these older cars had clocked up star trek mileages with no problems at all. New Mercedes Benz S-Class Diesel Saloons are very refined, quiet engines that use advanced technology for fuel delivery and combustion. Some of the best torque figures belong to the latest Mercedes Benz diesel engines – just perfect for relaxed luxury cruising.
Cast your eyes over the sleek and long S-Class Diesel and you are aware of the saloon’s big dimensions. At over 5.1 metres in length, there is plenty of spacious cabin area to push around the roads. Weighing in at a little under the two tonne mark, the Mercedes Benz S-Class Diesel isn’t a featherweight, however the smooth V6 Diesel engine is a great match for the S-Class ride and performance demands. Travelling in a new Mercedes Benz S-Class Diesel saloon is a unique and special experience. Copious levels of torque are on demand from very low engine revs, so the relaxed motion of the big German sedan is deceptively fast. The diesel engine is a 3.0-litre unit that is so apt at wafting along the roads. Available at an instance is a massive 620 Nm of torque from between 1600 and 2400 rpm. This sort of power eats up the journeys, and makes short work of moving passed slower traffic. Mercedes Benz claim a 0-100 km/h time of 6.8 seconds – proper big luxury sedan acceleration.
Fuel efficiency for the incredibly luxurious Mercedes Benz S-Class Diesel Saloon is as amazing as the beautifully crafted leather interior. Taking in a drive through the city streets and out into the country, the combined fuel economy for the Mercedes Benz S-Class Diesel comes in at under 6.5 litres/100 km. Thanks to the clever engine design and superior 7-speed automatic transmission, fuel consumption and emissions are kept very low for such a large, enjoyable sedan. Mercedes Benz includes ECO start/stop technology in the S-Class Diesel version, where the system turns the engine off at traffic lights or in a traffic jam. When it’s time to pull away again, the engine starts instantly.
Cabin ambience and opulence truly is in a class of its own. Mercedes Benz S-Class has topped the favoured luxury interior awards, and the latest S 350 BlueTEC is an S-Class with all the best materials and equipment for making a drive that is so rewarding and comfortable. Two models are available for the S-Class Diesel. You can opt for the Mercedes Benz S-Class Diesel S 350 BlueTEC or the Mercedes Benz S-Class Diesel S 350 BlueTEC Long Wheelbase version. Limousine style and space is what the long-wheelbase version promises. If you’re on the lookout for a new Mercedes Benz S-Class, do check out the various equipment packages up for grabs. Even the standard levels of equipment and luxury are amazing. “Experiencing is believing”, as they say.
A fresh new exterior makeover gives the Mercedes Benz S-Class Diesel saloon a sharper and more defined appearance. An interplay of convex and concave façades look very elegant and dynamic. New LED technology adds a striking play with light for the sedan’s headlamp and taillight design. At the front, the three-dimensional radiator grille looks very classy, and I’ve always liked the recent S-Class’s curvaceous lines. Adding to the beauty of the exterior, Mercedes Benz has used lightweight materials and aerodynamic design to create a large luxury sedan with a highly-competitive Cd value of 0.24.
Certainly one of the most beautiful cars on the road, the Mercedes Benz S-Class now offers the luxury car market with arguably the best diesel engine.
