The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class was designed for comfort.  It features multi-contour seats that offer unprecedented customization and available Hot Stone Massage settings.  This makes any trip or commute become an entirely new experience.  100% LED ambient lighting with glowing headliner create an inviting mood while available rapid seat and steering wheel heating systems keep the driver and passengers warm and comfortable even on the coldest nights.  To ensure comfort, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S550 offers the largest rear backrest recline angle in the luxury segment.

Innovative Technology Made Beautifully Simple

The driver display of the 2014 S550 has been radically redesigned and is now composed of two 12.3inch high-resolution screens.  It features the world’s first genuine multi-user media system with independent access to video, radio, DVD play and entertainment stored in USB devices.  Your favorite music is powerfully expressed with Burmester sound and the innovative Frontbass system that is physically built into the frame of the car.  Furthermore, the vehicle also offers Surround View System for 360 degrees of vision and clarity.

Advanced Technology Built to Protect

While performance, design, and comfort are all contributing factors to the exceptionality of this luxury sedan, the safety features are what truly set it apart.  True to Mercedes-Benz legacy for pioneering safety, the S550 incorporates the latest safety updates and advancements.    It features the first-of-its-kind MAGIC BODY CONTROL® suspension which can detect bumps and unevenness on the road and proactively adjust to the appropriate suspension settings for a smoother ride.  It also comes with PRE-SAFE® PLUS, Brake, and Impulse which provide a host of anticipatory front and rear occupant protection measures.  It also includes DISTRONIC PLUS® adaptive cruise control with Steering Assist which can automatically adjust speed and lane position.  The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class also includes a stereoscopic camera which can warn the driver of potential dangers faster than any other system in the world so you can drive with confidence and increased awareness of the road around you.
