  • Lots of safety systems as standard
  • Options can add driving assistance features

Safety has historically been an important part of what makes the Mercedes-Benz S-Class so ground-breaking, and it’s no different for the Coupe. While it hasn’t been tested by Euro NCAP at this point, it should fare particularly well in the event of an accident.

There are airbags all around the car and each S-Class Coupe also gets automatic low-speed braking, a crosswind mitigation system, ISOFIX child seat points in the rear, traffic sign recognition and a tyre pressure monitoring system.

On top of that, AMG S 63 and S 65 models get the Driver Assistance Package as standard, which lumps in a 360-degree parking camera, active lane-keeping assist (steers you back if you drift out of your lane without indicating), adaptive cruise control and collision mitigation systems that flash the lights and prepare the car if an impending impact is detected.

Other optional Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe safety kit includes:

  • High-performance brakes
  • Night vision displayed on the dashboard’s instrument panel
  • Split-view screen that shows different outputs to driver and passenger using the same display

The facelift in 2017 introduced more safety gear, including adaptive cruise control that can automatically adjust for bends, junctions and roundabouts on the car’s route.

  • Space for four but only two doors
  • Room in the boot for your golf clubs

The pertinent point here is this is a practical car, but only for two. Rear-seat passengers are at an obvious disadvantage because you’re limited to just two doors.

There’s loads of space for four inside thanks to the large chassis the S-Class Coupe is based on, however, and you get the requisite cup-holders along with storage cubbies in the central console.

The S-Class Coupe is a large car so isn’t going to be the easiest to park. It’s got an incredibly long bonnet so it’s a challenge to see just how far the bodywork stretches.

Parking sensors and a rear-view camera help to mitigate the size issue somewhat, though.

Its boot measures 400 litres – you’ll get a decent set of golf clubs in there – but specify the optional fridge (slotting between the rear seats) and you’ll lose 30 litres. What price that chilled bottle of bubbly for the 19th hole?

Still, the bootlid is powered, which will help when you’ve got your hands full.
