The third and final episode of the "Meet the S-Class DIGITAL" special provides insights into the holistic interior concept of the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class before its world premiere in September. Optimal ergonomics, high-tech materials and top-quality workmanship, combined with an aesthetically pleasing design and careful attention down to the smallest details. In the new S-Class, "Sensual Purity" reaches a new level as it takes noise and vibration insulation into consideration. This is the result from the sum of many measures and features, ensuring that journeys in the S-Class are a luxurious and satisfying experience for its passengers. Hartmut Sinkwitz, Head of Interior Design, Belinda Günther, Senior Manager Color & Trim, and Dirk Fetzer, Head of Product Management S-Class & Maybach, will give our host, Yasmine Blair, insights into numerous coordinated details – from the coloring of the high-quality leather and the seat adjusters, to noise and vibration insulation that minimize the feeling of uneven roads for the occupants. The news format "Meet the S-Class DIGITAL #3: Luxury & Well-being" will be broadcast on Wednesday, August 12, 2020 at 8:00 a.m. (EST) in a media special on the digital platform Mercedes me media at https://media.mercedes-benz.com/s-class and will be available afterwards as video on demand.
In the last of three "Meet the S-Class DIGITAL" episodes, and before Mercedes-Benz presents the new S-Class to the world on September 2, the manufacturer will, for the first time, show details of its holistic interior concept which significantly contributes to luxury, comfort and the well-being of the passengers. The luxury sedan combines a revolutionary new design language with digital technologies, ease of use and optimal ergonomics. The passengers' experience was one of the major focuses during the development. The holistic approach ranges from the implementation of numerous practical detail solutions –from Comfort Headrests – to ENERGIZING functions that support the mental and physical fitness of the drivers and their companions. The AIR BALANCE package with its three functions – fragrance, ionization and filtering – also contributes to increasing the well-being of the passengers, regardless of the outside air quality.
