Mercedes-Benz S500 – Broken Hybrid (ENG) – Test Drive and Review
Mercedes-Benz S Class 2021 has the internal code 223 with the letter W in front signifying standard wheelbase, and with the letter V for the long wheelbase. This is the Mercedes-Benz S500 V223.
An interesting bit of trivia: more than a third of all 222 generation S Classes were sold in China, where 90% of sales were the V222 model.
The Mercedes-Benz S Class competes with cars like the BMW 7 Series or the Lexus LS. The S Class and the 7 Series, both in long-wheelbase form, have similar length and wheelbase, the LS’ dimensions are closer to the standard wheelbase Merc and Bimmer.
The Mercedes-Benz S Class can be equipped with the optional rear wheel steering. The rear axel can turn 4 or 10 degrees, which can reduce the turning circle by even 2 meters.
The engine lineup at launch features three petrol, and two diesel engines with power ranging from 286 to 503 hp. There are 6 and 8 cylinder powerplants to choose from. Beside the least powerful petrol and diesel variants, which can be ordered with just RWD, everything else comes with AWD as standard. This is the S500 4MATIC, which means a 6-cylinder 3 liter petrol engine with 435 hp, 520 Nm of torque, and a mild hybrid system.
