[Interview with the owner of YesAuto] Since its launch, the new generation of Mercedes-Benz S-Class has become the overlord of the large car market by virtue of its era-leading luxury design. Such a model, which is known as redefining the luxury standard, is in daily use. What kind of performance does it have? Next, let us listen to what the three car owners say!

Perhaps in everyone’s impression, the owners of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class are a group of middle-aged uncles wearing suits and sitting in the back row, but in fact the three owners we invited are very young, and although they bought a Mercedes-Benz S-class, but they don't like to let others do it for them. They all drive by themselves.

The first owner Mr. Chen and his S 320 L

In addition to being an S-class owner, Mr. Chen is also the moderator of our car home Mercedes-Benz S-Class forum. The id is “Don't Cry Death 110”, and he also unites with the forum moderators of Audi A8L and BMW 7 Series. Established the LAC luxury car club. The club mainly focuses on large cars. The current membership has reached about 600.

Car buying experience

This Mercedes-Benz S-Class is Mr. Chen's second car. Before his car was an Audi A4L. When changing cars, Mr. Chen actually wanted to buy the CLS Safari version, but because the 4S shop could not meet some of the conditions promised before, Mr. Chen gave up the CLS Safari version and bought the current Mercedes-Benz S 320 L.

Mr. Chen is very satisfied with the appearance of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The atmospheric styling is unmatched in large cars. However, for young people like him, the car body color that the Mercedes-Benz S-Class can provide is a bit too monotonous to satisfy the personality. As a young consumer, he also changed his diamond silver body to the current emerald.

Although it is an entry-level model, Mr. Chen is still very satisfied with the configuration of this S 320 L, and because of the transplantation of a set of front seats derived from the Mercedes-Benz AMG S 65 L, it is now also used on this S 320 L. Functions such as dynamic seats, seat ventilation, and massage can be used. However, like the appearance, Mr. Chen still hopes that manufacturers can add some interior color matching suitable for young people. After all, the owners of large cars are getting younger and younger now.

In daily use, Mr. Chen feels that the closing of the air-conditioning system is too complicated. It is better to integrate the closing button on the air volume button, which is the most convenient way to turn off by long pressing. In addition, the 220V power interface in the rear of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is still European standard. If you want to use it in China, you must buy a converter.

As the forum moderator of the car home Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Mr. Chen often answers some questions for car fans, including the power of the S 320 L. In his opinion, although the power of the S 400 L is better, the S 320 L is also adequate and will not feel bulky in daily driving. At present, his S 320 L has driven nearly 30,000 kilometers, and the average fuel consumption is basically stable at 13 liters/100 kilometers. The overall performance has made Mr. Chen very satisfied.

The second owner Mr. Liu and his S 400 L

Mr. Liu is the only S 400 L owner in this interview. His car was purchased in March 2015 and has driven more than 30,000 kilometers. Speaking of why he bought a Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Mr. Liu said that he already owns an Audi Q5 and BMW 5 Series, so he wanted to buy a Mercedes-Benz when changing cars, and the S-Class is naturally the one that best represents Mercedes-Benz. .

Mr. Liu, who is engaged in the financial industry, naturally needs to consider business reception when buying a car, and this Mercedes-Benz S 400 L can meet his needs. The overall shape is steady and elegant, and the elegant and slender body is like an athlete in a suit. As for the LED headlights and flying-wing taillights, he also feels bright.

Among the interiors of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Mr. Liu's favorite is the two large-size LCD screens on the center console. The full LCD instrument is full of a sense of technology, and the display on the other side is also very impressive. Although some people still cannot accept the shape of this two-spoke steering wheel, Mr. Liu likes this novel design very much.

Considering that it is a large car, Mr. Liu still values power performance when buying a car, so in the end he chose the S 400 L. In actual users, this car did not let him down. The strong power can give the driver a good confidence, but this 7-speed gearbox is still a bit frustrated when shifting at low speeds.

In the first month of buying a car, Mr. Liu once drove this Mercedes-Benz S 400 L to another place and added a tank of oil locally. After returning, he found that the engine was lacking cylinders. Fortunately, he was in a 4S shop. Helped him solve the problem for free, and now it seems that it should be a problem with foreign oil products.

Mr. Liu’s Mercedes-Benz S 400 L has traveled more than 36,000 kilometers, and the overall fuel consumption is stable at about 12 liters/100 kilometers. He is very satisfied with the fuel consumption level. In addition, the 4S shop’s several maintenance services are also very good, let him choose There is nothing wrong with it. For the overall performance of this Mercedes-Benz S 400 L, Mr. Liu frankly can give it a score of 96 (100 points).

The third owner Mr. Li and his S 320 L

Like the first owner, Mr. Li’s car is also a Mercedes-Benz S 320 L, but unlike Mr. Chen, Mr. Li did not modify this S 320 L for business occasions. The color of the car is It is classic black. This car was purchased in May 2015 and has already traveled about 30,000 kilometers.

Car buying experience

This Mercedes-Benz S 320 L is Mr. Li's second car. His previous car was a Magotan. After driving for 7 years, he decided to change to a larger and better model. When buying a car, Mr. Li had seen the Audi A8L and BMW 7 Series. In the end, he chose the current Mercedes-Benz S-Class because he didn't like the Audi A8L and felt that the 7 Series was too old.

Like the two previous owners, Mr. Li is also very satisfied with the exterior design of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The magnificent and luxurious styling conforms to the image of a large car in his mind. However, the car body longer than 5 meters still needs special attention during daily driving and parking. In addition, the problem of radar sensitivity also bothers him.

Mr. Li likes the light-colored interior that he chose very much, but the price is that he must always pay attention to it during use and regularly clean the interior. In terms of configuration, the multi-color ambient light adds style to the interior. The addition of the interconnection system also allows him to completely abandon the mobile phone navigation and directly set up where he wants to go, which is convenient and fast. The fly in the ointment is the LCD screen at the center console. Although it is large in size, it does not support touch control, which makes him feel a little inconvenient.

Regarding the storage space in the car, Mr. Li also said that some are not enough. Things like mobile wallets can only be placed at the cup holder. The depth of the central armrest box is also very small, and it often happens that the lid cannot be covered. In addition, Mr. Li likes sports, so the trunk is always equipped with golf bags, badminton bags and other sports equipment. In this case, he feels that the space in the trunk is a bit tight.

In terms of power, Mr. Li believes that there is no problem with the S 320 L, but there will be some setbacks when the gearbox is low speed. This was also mentioned by the two previous owners. At present, Mr. Li's S 320 L has driven more than 30,000 kilometers, and the fuel consumption is stable at about 12 liters/100 kilometers, and the fuel economy is completely acceptable.

It can be seen from this car owner interview that the three car owners recognized the exterior and interior design of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, and the rich configuration also provided them with great convenience in use. However, three car owners also found some problems in their use. Among them, the low-speed frustration of the gearbox was mentioned the most, and the shutdown process of the air-conditioning system was also regarded as a problem by one car owner. On the whole, the three car owners are still very satisfied with this generation of Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
