Mercedes-Benz S-Class 0-60 times

Out of all performance specs, nothing but Mercedes-Benz S-Class 0-60 times can better speak about the vehicle's temper. While horsepower and torque blow smoke in the eyes, S-Class zero to sixty specs and average time to run a quarter mile are pretty straightforward metrics allowing to compare against its competitors.

Very often there is no chance of doing S-Class 0-to-60 test personally and making conclusions from the experience of the other drivers is the last thing you want.

Conducting a trustworthy test drive requires following a strict methodology that is intended to eliminate the inconsistent circumstances like weather, tires, surface, engine temperature. It is always better to leave it for professionals.


Increase Horsepower

The cold air part is also important in making more power. Cold air is denser and contains more oxygen molecules than warm air does. So if you can get cooler air into your Mercedes-Benz S-Class engine, your car will be able to mix more fuel with that air, making more power. Combine that with the more air through the larger and less restrictive filter and intake tube and you can see up to a 15-20 horsepower increase. K&N has even reported an estimated increase of 56.96 horsepower out of the 57-2571 intake for 2007-2009 Shelby GT500!

Unlike other models in its class which have to update significant changes, the S-Class still remains the best luxury sedan. This year’s readily available model, the S450 runs on a less powerful V6 compared to the S560 V-6 engine. However, to the joy of its users, Mercedes has retained its other cool features.

 

0-60 and Engine specs

The Mercedes offers three engines for its users such as the standard 3.0-liter V-6, the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 pushing 469 hp.

There is also 4.0-liter making 603 hp and the twin entry turbo 6.0-liter V-12 pushing 621 hp.

The 9-speed automatic gearbox brings into action the S450 3.0-liter V-6 and both 4.0-liter motors. The Mercedes doesn't use a twist converter in the S63 model. Instead of it, you can try a soggy clutch of a starter. It helps to save mass and advances the performance of fuel metering unit.

All S-Class forms go quietly and easily. Even a beginner-level driver can quickly get the hang of the vehicle. The relaxing S450 is powerful enough, but the S560 drafts even more than you imagine.

All 9-speed modifications except AMG accelerate quickly, but you don't feel the acceleration and do not hear the diesel. The Mercedes-Benz S-class 0-60 time is just 3.7-4.8 seconds. Among the real champions of the list, you find the S63 and S65 AMG modifications with the 12.1-12.2 seconds Mercedes-Benz  S-class 1⁄4 mile time.

No matter how strange it is, but the latest S-63 with 4-liter V-8 motor bypasses the twin-turbo early model with a 5.5-liter V-8 engine pushing up to 26 hp and showing a 3.5 seconds Mercedes-Benz 0 to 60 mph against 3.9 seconds.

The handling has remained smooth, and in Sport + mode you can feel the gear shift. S65 AMG model pushes 621 hp, but it isn't so fast. This model has only rear-wheel drive.

 

Exterior & Interior

Unlike previous S-Class models, in 2018 Mercedes offers sedans exclusively as a basic modification.

The model provides an update for all the bumpers. Mercedes also modifies the S-class headlights and taillights. Each wide-range headlight has three noticeable eyebrows. The V-12 model grille adorns the S-class nose. The grille consists of 3 double partitions. cars received the AMG and Maybach logo.The cabin gets a transparent glass dashboard with two 12.3-inch displays built into it. Panel lines continue in both directions: to the door to the front traveler and the driver.

The interior works in contrast to the modern infotainment screen and classic charm. Splashes of aluminum, leather and ooze leather complete the styling.

 

Conclusion

No matter what anyone says, but the 2018 S-class maintains its reputation and confidently acts as a leader of its niche. The A8 and 7-Series are among the closest competitors, but they are not as unique as the S-class. And its E-class semi-autonomous driving technologies makes us easy to recommend you this model of Mers.
