Mercedes S Class Lease

Leasing a Mercedes-Benz S-Class saloon doesn’t just mean business class luxury and sophistication guaranteed, this is also a vehicle that’s brimming with the very best collision-avoidance and lane-keeping technology.

One of the flagships of the German firm’s range, S-Class is a car with more than half a century’s worth of history behind it, having first been launched way back in 1972.

Seven generations of car later, the S-Class still occupies a space at the very summit of the market’s prestigious saloons, competing with the reassuringly-expensive Audi A8 and BMW 7 Series.

One of the key features of the recently-updated S-Class is its state-of-the-art ‘Drive Pilot’ system, which promises fully automated driving, subject to UK legislation allowing it.

The Drive Pilot operates via cameras, radar, lidar, sat-nav and HD mapping to ensure you can potentially finish other tasks while you’re chauffeured to your desired location.

Automated Valet Parking is also one of the S-Class’ party pieces, able to extricate itself from a multi-storey parking space before arriving at your nearest kerb at the touch of a button.

Meanwhile the Mercedes-Benz Driving Assistance Package includes ‘intelligent compliance with speed limits’, ensuring you don’t fall foul of the law on the way to that all-important meeting.

The limo-like interior utilises the Mercedes-Benz User Experience, or ‘MBUX’, system, which features up to five infotainment screens and an augmented reality head-up display.

And in terms of attention to detail and devotion to opulence, Mercedes-Benz really has left no stone unturned when creating the S-Class. The front seats, for example, have no less than 10 different massage programmes for the lease customer to choose from.

No wonder, then, that the S-Class - available in long and short wheelbase form - was recently named ‘Best Luxury Car’ by vehicle review website Parkers.

When it comes to engines, there are both traditionally-fuelled powertrains as well as hybrid solutions. The S 350 d is a 3.0 litre diesel mill with power of 286 hp and which will accelerate the S-Class from 0-62 mph in 6.4 seconds.

The plug-in hybrid ‘S 580 e’, on the other hand, is perhaps even more eye-catching. It marries a 3.0 litre petrol engine with a 110 kW electric motor. There’s an exceptional electric-only range of 65 miles, putting the PHEVS-Class into the 8% Benefit in Kind (BIK) rate, which should be music to the ears of business lease customers.

The S-Class PHEV also makes use of a 60 kW DC charger. That really is rapid charging, and enough to fully-replenish an empty battery in just 30 minutes, so make sure you get the right charger by consulting our guide on picking your ideal charger.
