Driving feel too tempting ...! Long or not, it takes the steering wheel away from the shofar...! The 5th generation Mercedes-Benz S-Class W221 is a real driver's car...!
The S-Class has always been the flagship of Mercedes-Benz and has led the times with the latest future-oriented technology, and is today regarded as a neo-classic: the first generation W116 (1972-1980), the second generation W126 (1979-1991), the third generation W140 (1991- The W220 (1998-2005), with its environmentally friendly active cylinders, was an improvement on the bloated third-generation concept, and was equipped with a more luxurious, environmentally friendly and thoroughly fuel-efficient engine, and was the first car in the S-Class to be equipped with a fuel-efficient engine. The 5th generation W221 (2005-2013), with a design that is similar to the current 7th generation, restored the dignity and style of the top-of-the-range S-Class….
The design work started in 1999, six years before the launch, at the Advanced Design Centre in Tokyo, and the final design by designer Gorden Wagener was completed in 2001, making the W221 the Mercedes-Benz of the millennium. The W221 is the very millennium design Mercedes-Benz.
The styling is clearly more refined and dynamic than its predecessor, the W220… The W220 of the previous generation was a model that was downsized to suit the times in reflection of the W140, which was pointed out to be bloated against the environment, but the W221, which dynamically promoted energy saving in terms of engine performance, has a large front grille and a very distinctive rear overhang. The interior space was also modernised, and today it is still referred to as the model that brought back the ‘S-Class character’…
The image of the interior has also changed from the previous W220, with its many plastic switches, to one that is full of luxury and full of quality… To enhance this quality, metal switches in leather and billet aluminium were used extensively, giving the car a more modern, millennium impression…. The driver interface also featured two large panel screens, displaying the analogue speedometer graphically, with the car’s distinctive command system and navigation screen in the centre of the screen, providing the driver with a range of information safely…. …
The W221 was also the first car to adopt the “Direct Select” operation…. The selector lever on the right-hand side of the steering column is a gem, allowing the driver to shift up, down, park and reverse at the touch of a button using this minimalist shift lever, while still holding the steering wheel….
In addition, a major feature of the W221 is that the chassis and transmission modes can be switched using the S, C and M switch buttons on the centre console….
In normal Comfort (C) mode, the ride height is lowered by 1 cm at speeds above 120 km/h, and by a further 1 cm at speeds above 160 km/h. The damping pressure also changes automatically to support high-speed stability … and returns to normal ride height and damping pressure when the speed drops to 80 km/h. … Next, when Sport is selected, the vehicle height drops by 2 cm at once when the speed exceeds 100 km/h to a stable driving posture… When the speed drops to 60 km/h, the vehicle returns to its normal position…
When manual mode is selected, the transmission can be freely operated using the direct select function described above, with the same attitude control as in sports mode….
Other futuristic features include a very comprehensive…
Adaptive Damping System with Adaptive Electronically Controlled Air Suspension.
Airmatic active body control
Pollen and charcoal filters and three ventilation modes.
