The Mercedes S-Class was struggling in the early 2010s. With extremely strong competition from models like the BMW 7 Series and the Audi A8, the S-class was experiencing declining sales and decreasing consumer interest. To combat this, Mercedes revamped the S-Class for the 2014 model year, and as expected, it follows the same design language as that was inspired by the 2010 Mercedes F800 Style Concept. The most important highlight of the newest generation S-Class is that it is now larger, which translates into more interior room. On the inside, there’s plenty of leather everywhere to go with some wood trim and a driver-oriented cockpit. With the new interior space, Mercedes was able to include a new “Frontbass” system which puts the audio subwoofers on the firewall as opposed to in the rear. Other updates included a new navigation system with live traffic information and the option for one of two Burmester audio systems.
