Mercedes-Benz cars of a class S (W220)The new Sedan of Mercedes-Benz of the highest class appeared in the market in September, 1998.
By production of the new car the set of technical innovations is applied. Among them and a row for the first time offered auxiliary systems.
«Distronic» automatically maintains a safe distance to ahead going car.
The electronic system "Comand" facilitates using an autoradio tape recorder, phone, navigation system and the TV.
The control panel is equipped with the central display allowing individually to adjust various functions of the car, and reports about it to the driver.
The smart card of inductive system of authorization of "Keyless-Go" allows to do without traditional keys of doors and ignition keys.
Comfortable, ventilated seats with a multicircuit back are established.
Lateral safety cushions entering into a base complete set over lateral glasses and in all doors provide reliable protection of passengers at lateral collision.
The design of cars of a S-class perfectly is in harmony with a difficult technique and emphasizes the major properties inherent in the Sedan: elegance, dynamics, quality and comfort. The major stylistic elements are the kupeobrazny silhouette giving to a new S-class sports and, at the same time, an elegant look, and also an attractive forward part of the car with characteristic headlights and a typical front grille.
At the same time with increase in length of salon at 17 mm, the length of a body of a new S-class decreased by 75 mm. Length of salon of model with the extended wheel base more than at the previous model on 37 mm.
The car is issued in two options of execution of a body: with the standard and extended wheel base (2965 and 3085 mm), with three options of the established V-shaped petrol engines (six, eight and twelve cylinders).
Diesel engines – ryadny 6-cylinder and V-shaped 8-cylinder engines with direct injection and Common-Rail system - are established since the end of 1999.
Petrol engines of a new S-class, thanks to a design with 3 valves and 2 spark plugs on the cylinder and to application of easy alloys, spend fuels for 13-17 percent less, than engines of the previous model.
Automatic shutdown of cylinders on the S 500 models reduces fuel consumption of the V-shaped eight-cylinder engine for 7 percent. Level of toxicity of exhaust gases corresponds not only to future norms of the European Community, but also strict American instructions for cars with low toxicity of the developed gases (ULEV).
At the expense of a suspension bracket entering into a base complete set with pneumatic dempfiruyushchy elements, the highest level of comfortableness of movement is reached. A combination of a pneumatic suspension bracket with adaptive dempfiruyushchy system, automatically change rigidity of racks shock-absorbers, depending on roughness of the road.
Multilever independent suspension bracket of back wheels.
For movement safety the new S-class is equipped with electronic protivozanosny system (stability stabilization - ESP), the amplifier of emergency braking (BAS) and system of anti-blocking of brakes (ABS).
Base brake system – hydraulic, double-circuit with the vacuum amplifier.
Brake mechanisms - disk, ventilated on all wheels. The foot parking brake is applied.
The steering mechanism - with circulating balls.
Magnificent aerodynamics and application of easy materials promoted decrease in fuel consumption. In comparison with the previous model of the same complete set, the new S-class weighs on 300 kg less. However weight reduction goes not at the expense of safety and comfortableness. On the contrary, thanks to high-strength steel and additional protective elements, and also development of big zones of the deformation, the new S-class provides still big safety, than the previous model.
