2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class
With the rise new S-Class, the sun rises with a new era for the automobile. Now, more thoughtful of its passengers. More in tune with its driver. More protective of those within or near its elegant presence. Everything that matters most to you matters more than ever to the S-Class.
More evolved. Keeps evolving
The Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) is more intuitive and intelligent. It grows even smarter over time – featuring an advanced multiscreen, multitouch digital cockpit that can recognize your fingerprint and respond to your natural voice.
Recognizes you. Remembers your likes
The S-Class comprises a 12.8-inch Organic LED (OLED) touchscreen as the centerpiece of five screens that you can use to share content or entertain individually. You can personalize up to 800 settings in the car or from your phone with seven user profiles.
Front air bags. Even in back
A perennial pioneer in occupant protection, the S-Class looks out for its own and even those around it with fresh advancements in safety, featuring front and rear airbags.
Easier in here. Safer out there
A more advanced suite of driver assists is standard. At the same time, systems and sensors networks now look further ahead and into adjacent lanes and tap into GPS and real-time data for better anticipation, quicker reaction, and smoother adaptation.
Signature details, majestic proportions, and a windswept sportiness unite in a sedan that’s undeniably modern yet unmistakably an S-Class. The gleaming Star stands proud above the iconic grille as a beacon of inspiration for all cars to follow.
Thousands of stitches, seamless result
Finely tailored leathers and exotic wood and metal trim envelop new technology in a perpetual and endless dedication to craftsmanship and detail. From switches to speakers, stitchwork to sculpting, every element creates a perfect harmony of form and function.
In the background, in the moment
You can select, pair and sequence the 64-color ambient lighting. New daytime brightness lets lighting in key locations confirm climate adjustments while offering driving alerts and warning passengers if they are reaching for a door handle while a vehicle is approaching
Fill the air, feel the sound
Standard Burmester® 3D Surround Sound offers immersive, personalized audio in a new 4D option that integrates resonators into the seats for music you can feel. Ear-level speakers now deliver driving information to the driver rather than the whole cabin.
Distinctive lines, distinguished bloodlines
Standard Luxury Line styling includes crisp chrome accents and a choice of three 19-inch or 20-inch wheel options. The elegantly aggressive AMG® Line and black-accented Night Package offer AMG® wheel options up to 21 inches.
A new generation of performance marries turbo and electric boost for more than 400 hp in every model. Torrential torque is precisely metered in all four air-suspended wheels for all-year, all-road confidence.
Turbo torque, electric EQ Boost
EQ Boost advances its innovative Integrated Starter Generator to add torque electrically and make ECO-START®/Stop even smoother. The S 500’s 429-hp inline-6 turbo is further boosted by an electric auxiliary compressor. Twin turbos help the S 580 V8 output 496 hp.
Tighter turns, smoother maneuvers
Rear-axle steering helps ease parking and city maneuvers. The rear wheels turn with the fronts for swifter lane changes at higher speeds, adapting to driving dynamics for more stable handling. A 10-degree system is part of the Executive Line, while the AMG® Line offers a 4.5-degree option.
Moving modes, for changing moods
Effortless or engaging, as you wish: DYNAMIC SELECT drive modes let you dial in performance with just a few taps. The 9-speed transmission, suspension, and more sharpen in Sport mode, ease up in ECO, or you can create a mode of your own.
Standard 4MATIC® all-wheel drive sends torque to the tires that can best turn traction into action, from winter’s wrath to tight turns. AIRMATIC® air suspension can adapt each wheel’s damping and ride height to optimize agility and poise.

All Mercedes me services operate only where cellular and GPS signals are available, which are provided by third parties and not within the control of Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC. Subscriber Agreement is required for service to be active. Some services are only available on select vehicles. Your PIN is required to use certain services. Connection may be limited by cellular signal and other factors. Features may be introduced and updated at varying dates, and may also require a vehicle software update. Some services may be limited or restricted in some areas. Driver is responsible for complying with traffic and other laws. See your dealer or MBUSA.com/mercedesme for details.
While the navigation system provides directional assistance, the driver must remain focused on safe driving behavior, including paying attention to traffic and street signs. The driver should utilize the system’s audio cues while driving and should only consult the map or visual displays once the vehicle has been stopped in a safe place. Maps do not cover all areas or all routes within an area, may require periodic updating, and may not reflect recent or temporary changes to roadways.
SEE OPERATOR’S MANUAL FOR ADDITIONAL WARNINGS AND INFORMATION ON AIR BAGS, SEAT BELTS AND CHILD SEATS. Always use LATCH or ISOFIX to fasten a child seat in a vehicle with an Integrated Restraint System. For vehicles equipped with the optional rear seat-belt air bags, only use a Mercedes-Benz approved booster seat. Never use an air bag-equipped seat belt to fasten a front- or rear-facing child seat or a non-approved booster seat.
Some systems are optional. Even the most advanced safety systems may not be sufficient to avoid an accident. It is the driver’s responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for system alerts before braking or taking evasive action, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance. See Operator’s Manual for system operating speeds and additional information and warnings.
Blind Spot Assist is a warning system only, and may not be sufficient to avoid all accidents involving vehicles in your blind spot and does not estimate the speed of approaching vehicles. It should not be used as a substitute for driver awareness and checking of surrounding traffic conditions. Exit Warning Assist feature operates up to three minutes after vehicle is switched off, or until indicator in mirror flashes three times. See Operator’s Manual for system operating speeds and additional information and warnings.
No system, regardless of how advanced, can overcome the laws of physics or correct careless driving. Please always wear your seat belt. Performance is limited by available traction, which snow, ice and other conditions can affect. Always drive carefully, consistent with conditions. Best performance in snow is obtained with winter tires.
The actual purchase price of the vehicle is subject to change by the dealer and may vary based on location of the Dealer and customer, inventory levels, vehicle features and available discounts and rebates. The Online Price excludes taxes and/or fees resulting from the sale of the vehicle, including, but not limited to destination charges, labor, title, license and installation charges.
