The Mercedes S350L CDI exterior at a glance
Strength and elegance is what springs to mind when you look head on at this new S Class Mercedes. The distinctive
flattened shield-shaped chrome grille has four horizontal bars separated by one vertical central bar. Sitting above
the grille is the iconic three-armed Mercedes star symbol, sitting upright almost like a trophy on display. To
either side of the raised bonnet the headlamps lift up and sweep back like the eyes of a cat.
The lines are smooth and sweeping, curving up over the central saloon area to drop naturally to the rear of the
car. At either side of this four door car, your eye is drawn to the almost chunky elegance of the 18 inch
Various other types of alloy wheels are available as optional extras, and the car comes in a variety of possible
colours too. There's the 20 inch 5-twin-spoke, the 18 inch 7-twin-spoke, the 19 inch multi-spake, the 19 inch
5-dob-spoke, and the 18 inch 15-spoke design. For the paint finishes available, there's the standard black that has
a kind of forbidding, yet commanding image.
There are also a range of metallic paint finishes available: Carneol red, Cavansite blue, Dolomite brown, Iridium
silver, Magnetite black, Obsidian black, Palladium silver, Periclase green, and Peridot brown.

The Mercedes S350L CDI interior at a glance
The driving and passenger environment of the Mercedes S350L CDI is impressive. This will remind you of the kind of
luxurious elegance that limousines of a bygone age enjoyed. Comfort, of course, never gets jaded, and elegant
styling may change superficially, but some things can never change and never should. New technology will continue
to add great ideas that help make your experience of driving better in many ways, but at a first glance, the
interior of the Mercedes S350L CDI looks comfortingly and satisfyingly familiar.
Wood and fine leather upholstery dominate the interior finishes of this new S Class 2012 car.The dash appears
uncluttered and functional, which should come as a relief; many modern car manufacturers seem to think that
overpowering you with technology and gizmos is the way forward.
The multi-function steering wheel has built-in controls that give you command over many of the car's operations.
The front seats are ergonomically designed, and so are the back seats. This has been a priority in design as
Mercedes are quick to realise that comfort in their top range cars is of vital importance.
The Mercedes S350L CDI handling ability at a glance
Driving the Mercedes S350L CDI is a thrilling experience, regardless of your age or gender. Big cars can be
difficult to drive in high winds, for example, but Mercedes have got that covered. The car's stability control has
had a crosswind stabilisation function added. This works by sensing a side wind, then loading up the springs on the
opposite side of the car to counter the wind effect. After a slight initial feel of wind pressure against the car,
you are quickly returned to normal, as if the wind didn't exist. This feature has obvious safety factors, though of
course, high side winds should always be respected for the potential danger they pose.
The Mercedes S350L CDI has other important and novel safety features as well. The Adaptive High Beam Assist
function is one you will wish other drivers have when the dazzle you with their oncoming lights. This car, by
contrast, dips the lights automatically when it senses light coming in the opposite direction, thereby showing
consideration to other drivers, and you don't even have to think about it. Another useful safety feature is
Attention Assist. Your body movements are monitored through the seat, and if the car thinks you have fallen asleep,
or even just becoming tired, it will warn you and wake you up sharply.
Lane Keeping Assist is an interesting feature. If you cross a white line without first signaling, the steering
wheel will gently vibrate to remind you that perhaps you should have made a signal of some sort.
Driving this new S Class 2012 model is easy and gentle. There's power aplenty under the bonnet, yet the fuel
consumption is surprisingly good. The car is firm on tight corners and steady on long straights. It does what you
tell it to do every time. Visibility out of this car is also good, and the comfort factor is much better than you
are likely to expect.
