The Mercedes-Benz’ Sonderklasse, German for special class, is a line of full-size luxury sedans that can hardly be rivaled in seamless driving dynamics and ergonomic technology. Whenever a new S-Class model is launched, it’s big news for supercar enthusiasts.
The Mercedes-Benz S 580 is an upgraded 2021 model of the S-Class’ executive sedan and features the four-wheel drive technology, the 4MATIC system, designed to boost the car’s traction on slippery roads. We could hardly wait to run a test drive with the supercar to evaluate its performance, and now that that’s taken care of, here’s what we think about the new Mercedes-Benz S 580.
How It Drives
The new car is not too far off in how it drives from the last generation model, but this just shows how much of an advanced creation of engineering the model was. It isn’t easy to top it just yet. Regardless, the driving experience was seamless, and there was zero turbulence making its way into the car cabin, making for a very comfortable ride.
Moreover, its increased maneuverability helps you park and steer the car easily, and allows you to make your way through narrow spaces with little to no difficulty.
The model’s interior space is dominated by touchscreens with great user interfaces that are a replacement for the traditional dials and buttons. What’s more, it’s got the MBUX infotainment system that recognizes you via several credentials that include your facial scan, voiceprint, fingerprint, or a typed-in PIN. The voice-activated digital assistant built into the system can analyze your routine routes and offer suggestions for your frequent destinations every time you check in based on the info.
The system can also automatically adjust the sound profile inside so that whenever you have music on, it’s set to your preferred high or low frequency. It also supplies just the right amount of bass-induced seat-shaking that you’re comfortable with.
The infotainment system does, however, have an area where it lacks. There’s a lack of shortcuts in the user interface, making switching between software a tad difficult and a longer process than necessary. There’s a lot of tapping and swiping to be done before you can access an app of your choosing.
The sedan has four doors that lead into the car cabin that contains a five-seat arrangement. The front seats are supple, ergonomic, and supportive. There’s also sufficient headroom and legroom if you’re tall.
The rear seats are just as spacious and supportive of your posture but outperform the front seats in terms of comfort level. There are fabric headrest pillows, padded seat belt airbags, and illuminated seat belt buckles on top of options for a massaging function. In place of any middle seats, you get a center console with two foldable tray tables with the new S-Class model.
