New Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupé now on sale

Written by Ellie

Mercedes-Benz has confirmed pricing and equipment for the new S-Class Coupé.

Prices for the high-end 7 Series rival will start from £104,115 for the S 560, rising to £128,015 for the Mercedes-AMG S 63 and topping out at £189,615 for the SMG S 65.

The S 560, which replaces the outgoing S 500, uses a new four-litre biturbo V8 petrol unit capable of producing 462bhp and up to 700Nm of torque. This gives it a 0-62mph sprint of 4.6 seconds with speed electronically capped at 155mph. Driven with a light right foot, it can return 34mpg combined whilst emitting 188g/km of CO2.

With 603bhp, the AMG S 63 uses its four-litre twin-turbo petrol engine to blast-off to 62mph in 4.2 seconds, while the 621bhp six-litre S 63 goes a tenth of a second quicker (4.1 seconds).

The S 560 may be the entry-level S-Class Coupé but its list of equipment is anything but basic, coming as standard with wireless phone charging, airmatic air suspension, a 12.3-inch dual-bonded widescreen cockpit and infotainment display, Merc’s Magic Vision Control wiper system and Intelligent Light system.

There’s also a fixed panoramic sunroof, keyless go, remote boot opening, electrically adjustable seats and steering wheel, 64-colour ambient lighting, ventilated seats, Burmester surround sound system, and 19-inch alloy wheels.

S 560 models can be fitted with a Premium equipment line for £4,995 which throws in Nappa leather, 360-degree camera and packages designed to optimise comfort.

The S 63 builds on this by adding the AMG sports exhaust system, AMG sports suspension, AMG sports seats finished in Nappa leather, AMG panamericana grille, 20-inch alloy wheels and the Seat Comfort package, which includes massage function.

Finally, the Driving Assistance package (£2,580 or £1,695 if specified with Premium equipment line) includes several systems designed to help the driver regarding steering, speed limit, braking, lane keeping and blind spot.

Molly Benton, brand manager at Fuel Card Services, comments: “The S-Class is a highly attractive company car for senior decision makers within organisations and the Coupé variant is just as attractive.”
