The most available engine for the new S-Class is currently the S 350 six-cylinder diesel engine with an output of up to 210 kW. By contrast, the only available gasoline engine exceeds three million.
The new-generation Mercedes-Benz S-Class with the internal designation W223 was officially introduced to the world at the beginning of this month and only two weeks later it also published Czech awards. At the moment, you will pay at least over 2.5 million crowns for the new flagship of the three-pointed star.
The basic price of the new S-Class is 2,536,160 crowns and applies to the S 350 six-cylinder diesel engine with an output of up to 210 kW and a torque of 600 Nm, which is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. In the case of the extended eSka variant with a wheelbase of 3,216 mm, the price tag is 2,647,480 crowns. Alternatively, the engine is also available with all-wheel drive, for a hefty surcharge of more than 100,000 crowns.
The second diesel alternative is the S 400 d 4Matic, a three-liter six-cylinder tuned to 243 kW and 700 Nm, paired with all-wheel drive as standard. It costs 2,845,920 crowns, or 2,957,240 crowns in the case of an extended design. Who would then want a petrol variant, at the moment has only one option, a six-cylinder S 500 4Matic with 320 kW and 520 Nm for CZK 3,073,400 and CZK 3,184,720, respectively (S Long).
The S 450 4Matic six-cylinder petrol engine with 270 kW and 500 Nm does not yet know the Czech price tag. Later we will also see an eight-cylinder variant or a plug-in hybrid.
The basic equipment is already rich, as befits a flagship. Includes 18 ”alloy wheels, electrically operated, heated and ventilated front seats with massage function, head-up display with augmented reality, LED headlights, door servo or MBUX multimedia system, including navigation with OLED screen. There is also adaptive cruise control, an active parking assistant, windscreen washers in Magic Vision Control wipers, the Burmester music system and a panoramic, electrically operated sunroof.
Of course, there are still a number of elements available at an additional cost. Among the discounted packages, let’s mention the set of comfortable heating for CZK 18,247 with heating of the steering wheel and front and rear armrests or a set of comfortable rear seats for CZK 53,482 with orthopedic rear seats with heating of the nape and shoulders in the rear of the vehicle.
Ventilated and heated rear seats will cost 39,797 crowns, digital TV reception at 33,977 crowns or rear side airbags at 11,955 crowns. The pivoting rear axle then costs 40,898 crowns. The functions of the brand’s flagship are also proven by such options as the flag console on the fender for CZK 30,831 or the cooling box in the rear of the vehicle for CZK 36,179.
The first copies of the new Mercedes S-Class will appear at dealers before the end of this year.
