Another highlight sits on top of the car, literally - we are referring to the 1.32 square meter (14.2 square feet) panoramic glass roof, which covers over tho thirds of the overall roof area. Those who find the Magic Sky Control dimming feature insufficient will be happy to find out there’s also a roller blind at hand.
Nevertheless, the really special bits can be found under the car. Here’s where Mercedes has upgraded the Magic Body Control with an Active Curve Tilting. Basically, the S-Class Coupe leans into a bend like a motorcyclist. The aim here is to reduce the lateral G effect on the occupants, increasing comfort.
So far, we’ve had a surprisingly unpleasant experience with the Mercedes S-Class - as we wrote in our test drive, the cornering effects on the passengers saw the car inducing a slight state of nausea. In AMG guise (S63 AMG 4Matic), the effect is attenuated, but it’s still there.
Thus, we’re extremely curious how the new function, albeit with a limited maximum angle of 2.5 degrees, will affect the aforementioned issue.
The 2015 S-Class Coupe is set to make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show, on March 6, with customer deliveries set to start in the second half of the year.
