Mercedes has been busy making the world brim with excitement over the upcoming introduction of the E Class executive sedan, but they’re certainly not forgetting they have an entire lineup to care for.
Amidst all the news covering the interior of the E Class saloon, with the automaker releasing recently the first pics and details, the brand also had time to deliver a new addition to the S Class Coupe model range – the new S400 4MATIC Coupe. There are no design updates here to begin with, since this is just a model variant and doesn’t come with any kind of facelift. The change is present under the hood though, where we can find the V6 3.0-liter turbo mill churning out 362 hp (270 kW) at 5,500 – 6,000 rpm and 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque at 1,800 – 4,500 rpm. The model name says it all, so the power is delivered to the wheels through the assistance of the 4MATIC all-wheel drive system that is linked to the engine via the well known 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic gearbox. This suffices for a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run lasting 5.6 seconds and an electronically-controlled 155 mph (250 km/h) top speed. Fuel consumption is of no importance here, but we do have the figures: 28.3 mpg (8.3 liters / 100 km) and has harmful emissions of 193 g/km of CO2.
Since we’re talking about the flagships of the Mercedes-Benz brand, the S Class Coupe boasts a wide array of standard goodies – from adaptive LED headlights or the THERMOTRONIC automatic climate control system to the COMAND Online infotainment system, Active Parking Assist or the comfy AIRMATIC suspension. The new addition to the roster has a starting price of 99,960 euros in Germany and first deliveries are expected in early 2016.
