The S-Class totally based on the E-Class models, the overall science is the same but the difference is the size and engines. The automaker called the E-Class as the heart of the Mercedes and it is the only model class that releases all the pressure from the automaker and the experts say that the E-Class is actually a massive technological advancement while being advanced, stylish and economical.

Mercedes E220 Driving Dynamics
Mercedes E220 offers excellent driving dynamics with world class body control, once Mercedes officials claim that their vehicle is the safest cars on the globe. Don’t know to what extent this claim was right but it is confirmed that Mercedes has excellent body control with a number of options like drive pilot and adaptive cruise control system and active steering system to deliver the best to the driver. All these systems work like an autopilot mode but they are not actually the autopilot. Mercedes offered a number of gadgets with autonomous technology features and there is no doubt in the success. Improved performance, top rated efficiency and refinement at its peak, all comes in the new Mercedes E220 models.
When it comes to the suspension system, the E-Class offers steel springs and adaptive dampers because of the bad condition of the UK roads. However if someone likes an air suspension system in its vehicle, the adaptive air suspension system is offered as an option for the UK market. The standard coil springs do the job well and soak the majority of larger bumps even better than any other suspension system. The rivals including Audi A4, BMW 5 Series, and Jaguar XF can’t do the job at the peak as Mercedes does on the broken tarmac roads.

This engine takes only 7 seconds to reach the 0-62miles per hour, even it makes 149 miles per hour of top speed.
