Mercedes S-Class Coupe Owner’s Guide

If the S-Class Sedan just isn’t sporty enough for you Mercedes has the answer – the S-Class Coupe. Since 2015 this two-door version has been a welcome addition to the S-class lineup. The newest Mercedes S-Class Coupes are packed with tech features and an engine that’s more powerful than ever before. 

Owning a Mercedes S-Class in Austin is something few people are able to achieve. If you’re in that group, or hope to be soon, this overview is for you. 

The Mercedes S-Class Coupe Model Essentials

You and three passengers can experience a truly exceptional drive in the Mercedes S-Class Coupe model, because this is a coupe that’s designed to be comfortable and entertaining no matter the distance. Many have likened it to the Bentley Continental GT in terms of its luxurious interior and the smoothness of the ride. Compared to the starting price of the Bentley, the Mercedes S-Class Coupe will feel like a steal. 


The Mercedes S-Class Coupe’s 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 outputs more than enough power to get this car cruising, and that’s without opting for an AMG model. The suite of available driver assistance features are integrated well so that all the adjustments don’t become cumbersome, which is the case in some vehicles. If you want to turn an assistant feature off or make an adjustment all you have to do is tap the steering wheel.
