The new S-class was developed with three engineering goals, "Intelligent Drive", "Efficient Technology" and "Essence of Luxury". The end product is a more luxurious, technologically advanced automobile. One that sets the new standards for what a true luxury car should be. If the regular S-class isn't luxurious enough for you, the German brand has added the ulra-luxury Mercedes-Maybach variant that sits above the long wheelbase S-class Long.The S-class is offered with two powerplants for the Philippine market. The S320 Long variant is powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 gasoline mill which makes 268hp and 400Nm of torque, the S560 variants are powered by a 4.0-liter turbo V8 gasoline unit which produces 462hp and 700Nm of torque. Both powerplants are mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission.
