The car is an exceptional performer that is well-built for everyday use or weekend time out. It can speed off in a straight line and is absolutely outstanding in corners.

But the most unique feature of this car is its ability to remain absolutely comfortable and quiet in any environment and atmosphere.

Features of the S-Class Coupe 2015 Model

There are three models of the S-Class Coupe: a high-performance S63 AMG 4Matic, the base S550 4Matic, and the top-of-the-line S65 AMG.

The S65 is rear-wheel drive only while the S550 and S63 AMG both come standard with all-wheel drive (4Matic).

Power of Each Model

The S65 is powered by a twin-turbo V12 that develops 621 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque. It uses a slightly modified version of the AMG-tuned seven-speed automatic found in the S63.

Power in the S550 is delivered by a 4.7-liter, twin-turbo V8 that delivers 449 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque.

However, the S63 AMG ups the ante to a 5.5-liter V8 rated 577 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque.

Both models use a seven-speed automatic but the S63 uses an AMG-specific version with multiple shift modes.

How does the stylish S-Class Coupe 2015 Model Drive?

The S550 coupe is stylishly designed to set you apart from anything that might jostle the cabin, make noise, or otherwise interrupt the tranquil interior environment.

The car rides on a standard air spring suspension with multiple drive modes that lets you maneuver in different degree of responsiveness. The S550 coupe can speed off at a 0-60-mph time of 4.7 seconds.

Even at full speed, it’s hard to tell you’re driving that fast. At full throttle, on any road, you can hardly hear any engine noise or even wind. The only sound that creeps in through the cabin is barely noticeable in the background.

The car’s level of refinement spreads to the entire interaction you have with it. From the feel of the steering to the action of the brakes, everything works precisely and with little effort.

The Mercedes S-Class coupe is designed with a subtle brake pedal that stops in just 113 feet from 60 mph during test driving. Also, the car weaved through slalom at 66.5 mph. Both numbers are excellent indications for a car of its size.

Interior Design and Comfort

The Mercedes S-Class coupe is one of the leading, accommodating, and luxurious coupe you can find anywhere in the world today.

The car is stylishly designed with large doors that open wide for easy entry and exit. With seats that offers cooling, heating, and several massage options, the Mercedes S-Class coupe is a confluence of elegance and respect.

From the driver seat, there is enough glass to give you a superb view. Also, the car is designed with a back-up camera that helps simplify issues when backing up in tight spaces.

The Mercedes S-Class coupe is designed with a unique cabin that does away with several buttons, but opts for a large display screen on the dash and central controller on the console.

The interface is uniquely designed with several features including simple functions such as fan controls, and temperature which could still be regulated via the line of switches that are displayed on the dashboard.

Try the Mercedes S-Class coupe and experience unique power, respect and absolute elegance that come with the car.
