2021 S-Class

Arriving Spring 2021

What’s not to love about the new 2021 S-Class? The superior aesthetics, unmistakable appearance, and intuitive nature make the new S-Class the most advanced luxury sedan Mercedes-Benz has ever produced. While everything about the new S-Class is striking, here are some of our favorite features:

New Generation MBUX Multimedia System

One of the first things you’ll notice when you sit inside the new S-Class is the large 12.8-inch OLED touchscreen, which is said to be the heart of the S-Class. Once you take a seat behind the wheel and select your personal profile, the new Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) welcomes you by adjusting the car’s features to meet your specifications. Over time, the system will learn you, predict which features you want to select and provide tactical feedback. The new generation MBUX will recognize your voice, read your lips, and study your gestures so that you can be in command while focusing on what is ahead.

The new MBUX is not only the perfect in-car virtual assistant; it also makes for the ideal co-pilot. Contact us to learn more about the new generation MBUX Multimedia System!

Active Ambient Lighting 

While Ambient Lighting allows drivers to customize their cabin according to their mood, Active Ambient Lighting provides that and more through the integration of light animation with driving assistance systems. For example, Active Ambient Lighting can send a red visual warning to the driver if it indicates an impending collision (Active Blind Spot Assist) or when it is unsafe to exit the vehicle due to traffic approaching from behind.

Enhanced Energizing Comfort Package as a standard option

Mercedes-Benz has taken the Energizing Comfort Package to a new level by adding in-depth massage from four vibrating motors, 10 different massage programs, sound resonance linked with Burmester® 4D Sound System, and integrated Active Ambient Lighting.


The new 2021 S-Class is all about advanced safety. ATTENTION ASSIST®,  an industry-first by Mercedes-Benz, analyzes the driver’s behavior and patterns to indicate if the driver is fatigued and needs to take a break from driving. ATTENTION ASSIST® 3.0 works with the driver cameras in the 3D Instrument Cluster to study facial characteristics to recognize when a driver might be getting drowsy.

Seamless door handles

The seamless door handles not only give the new S-Class a sleek and seductive appearance, they also improve the noise level in the interior, ensuring an even more quiet and comfortable drive. When not in use or while traveling, the door handles are retracted and flush with the door. When you’re ready to get in, using KEYLESS GO® will automatically extend the door handles.

Over-the-air updates save you time

With traditional software updates, Mercedes-Benz requires a certified technician to complete the update. Now, the new S-Class can do it itself by updating over 50 electronic components completely over the air saving you time.


The 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is expected to arrive in the U.S. in Spring of 2021. With questions about the S-Class or placing an order, contact us directly.
