Experience The-New 2021 Mercedes-Benz S580 S-Class https://youtu.be/OOokHMntDtQ

The 2021 S-Class rides atop an entirely new platform, code-named MRA II. Designed to accommodate more robust electronics and the large battery of the S580e plug-in hybrid, the W223 grows in all directions. Standard-bodied cars span 17 feet, a 2.0-inch increase over last year’s car. The wheelbase grows even more, by 3.0 inches, to 122.4 inches. If you go with the long-wheelbase model, the overall length grows 1.3 inches, to 17.4 feet.
 
But despite the growth and all the new tech, the S-Class bucks the trend set by a lot of new cars by losing some weight. More aluminum and high-strength steel have the double benefit of stiffening the body-in-white and shaving 132 pounds, too. That more rigid body cuts down on vibrations and noise, making the S-Class quieter and more comfortable than ever.

Mercedes matched the stronger, larger body with its latest EQ Boost system, which pairs a 48-volt electrical system with an integrated starter-generator and an auxiliary compressor that spools the turbo. The S500 features a turbocharged 3.0-liter straight-six engine, good for 429 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque, while the S580’s twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 packs 469 hp and 516 lb-ft.
