            That is fine, at least we get to see the car in motion on the open roads. From what I can understand, the new inline 6 with the E boost function is very responsive with no lag at all, the engine is powerful enough to allow the car to cruise at 100km/h in 9th gear with the engine revving at 1000 rpm. The kickdown from the gearbox is fast but not as smooth as expected.

              I feel like Mercedes hasn't prioritized smooth shifts since the introduction of the 7G-tronic a decade ago.

              Yeah, the reviewer did a kick down twice at 6.52min and the fuel consumption for the s500 is at 6.6l per 100km(s560 at 8.5l per 100km)
              I wonder how come there isn't any english reviews up till now?

                            Even though the FL was something of a small shock to start off with due to its move away from curvy to the squarish front end, but I am certainly starting to warm up to the FL more..and I think the changes were maybe for the better if the S is to keep a bit more fresh until it's replaced in 2020/21..the only major complain is the E Class sport bumper and the ridiculously chromed Maybach one..

                            S500 equipped with a new 3.0L inline six-cylinder turbocharged engine performance is satisfactory, Mercedes-Benz innovative use of built-in integrated start-up motor and 48-volt car electronic control system, the system's biggest advantage is that the built-in motor for the vehicle Provide a certain torque, can be a good solution to the phenomenon of turbo hysteresis, so that the vehicle power output more smooth and efficient.

                            The actual experience, you can clearly feel that the engine power output than the S560 V8 engine is more excellent, of course, compared to the V8 engine, S500 or can clearly feel the power output at some point will occasionally appear weak , While the engine noise control, S500 models will be slightly lower than the higher level models some. Of course, if combined with the domestic use of Mercedes-Benz S scenes, I would recommend the S500 models, after all, very few domestic S-level is used to drive their own.

                            S560 is equipped with a 4.0L V8 twin-turbo engine, and S63 are the same as the F1 car used Inside V structure turbocharger and automatic cylinder off function, but the adjustment power slightly lower than the S63, in the actual driving , You can feel the overall output of this powertrain to maintain a very high efficiency.

                            In terms of control, it is clear that the S500 and S560 more representative of the past Mercedes-Benz S-class style, calm and comfortable is its biggest feature, with the air suspension system chassis to maximize the vehicle driving and ride comfort,

                              Some news on the S Class sraight 6's, the S 500 has 435 hp!! But only 520 Nm torque??

                              Stuttgart/Affalterbach. With the first of the new S‑Class vehicles (available to order since May) already on their way to European dealerships, sales of further models are now beginning. These will take the new S‑Class Saloon family to a total of 24 models. Buyers have a choice of nine petrol and diesel engines, rear wheel drive and 4MATIC, short and long wheelbase, and models branded Mercedes-Benz, Mercedes-AMG and Mercedes-Maybach. The latest models, which are now available to order, will arrive in dealerships in October.

                              The new, systematically electrified in-line six-cylinder comes to the starting line in two output levels. In theS 450 (also as 4MATIC; fuel consumption combined: 7.0-6.6 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 159-150 g/km) an output of 270 kW (367 hp) and 500 Nm of torque are available. The S 500 (fuel consumption combined: 6.6 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 150 g/km) delivers 320 kW (435 hp) and offers 520 Nm. The 49‑volt integral starter/alternator is quickly able to provide a further 250 Nm of torque and 16 kW of output. Compared with the similarly powerful S 500 predecessor with a V8 engine, it has been possible to reduce the CO2 emissions of the engine by around 22 percent.

                              The significant power increase of the six-cylinder petrol engines to the level of the previous eight-cylinder units is also reflected in the model designations: The new six-cylinder models are therefore positioned as the S 450 and S 500.

                              The top-of-the-line Mercedes-Benz is the S 600 (fuel consumption combined: 11.6 l/100 km; combined CO2emissions: 270 g/km). Its V12 setup delivers 390 kW(530 hp) and 830 Nm. The new twelve-cylinder engine in the Mercedes-Maybach S 650 delivers 463 kW(630 hp) and offers a maximum torque of 1000 Nm (fuel consumption combined: 12.7 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 289 g/km). The spearhead of the S‑Class remains the Mercedes-AMG S 65 with its high-torque 6.0‑l itre V12 biturbo engine with 463 kW(630 hp) and 1000 Nm (fuel consumption combined: 11.9 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 279 g/km).

                              A new addition to the price list: the dynamics-oriented suspension system MAGIC BODY CONTROL. It detects and smooths out unevenness in the road ahead. In the new S‑Class this suspension control has been further improved: the system's new stereo camera works at speeds of up to 180 km/h. The S‑Class Saloon's curve inclination function is another comfort enhancement available for the first time. The body tilts to the inside of the bend by up to 2.65 degrees, thereby reducing the lateral forces acting on the passengers. MAGIC BODY CONTROL with curve inclination function is standard equipment for the Mercedes-Benz S 600, Mercedes-Maybach S 650 and Mercedes-AMG S 65 and available as an option for the S 560 with short or long wheelbase and for the Mercedes-Maybach S 560 (5355 euros).

                              All S-Class models feature the latest-generationCOMAND Online infotainment system as standard. Films on Blu-ray or DVD, TV, internet, video games, music – the Individual Entertainment System in the rear (3213.00 euros) lets passengers in the rear of the vehicle put together their own personal entertainment programme. In combination with high-quality wireless headphones (optional, one set of headphones: 119.00 euros, two sets of headphones: 238.00 euros), two 25.9 cm (10.2‑inch) displays on the front seat backrests ensure brilliant video and audio quality.

                              The "COMAND Touch" app has been extended in terms of its functions, especially in the ace of the Rear Seat Entertainment, allowing access via smartphone to various vehicle functions. A new feature is that passengers in the rear can now study the planned route during the journey and send points of interest along the route to the head unit for the driver. This also works when the passengers are not online, since the maps can be downloaded in advance for offline use. The "COMAND Touch" App is available free of charge from the Apple™ App Store and Google Play Store.

                              Further equipment highlights:

                              • A host of new and totally revamped assistance systems, including Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC and Active Steering Assist have been bundled together in the optional Driving Assistance package (2737 euros).
                              • With Remote Parking Assist, the driver can manoeuvre the S‑Class into and out of narrow parking spaces or garages from outside the vehicle via smartphone. Remote Parking Assist is part of the Remote Parking package (4343.50 euros).
                              • Extremely quick and precise adjustment of the driving lights to the current traffic conditions comes courtesy of MULTIBEAM LED. Via 84 individually controllable LEDs, the light is always switched on exactly where it is needed. The ULTRA RANGE Highbeam generates the maximum light intensity permitted by law. MULTIBEAM LED with ULTRA RANGE Highbeam is standard on the Mercedes-Benz S 600 as well as on the Mercedes-AMG and Mercedes-Maybach models. For other models there is an additional charge of 1999.20 euros.
                              • ENERGIZING comfort control combines different comfort functions in six programs. ENERGIZING comfort control will be available from September 2017 and costs 238 euros.
                              • The extended ambient lighting (476 euros) showcases the interior like a work of art, composing 10 colour schemes from a total of 64 colours.
                              The S-Class is the Mercedes-Benz flagship and was the world's best-selling luxury saloon in 2016. Since 2013 the company has sold well over 300,000 saloons. Since the market launch, around four million S‑Class Saloons have been delivered to customers worldwide.

                                    what is interesting is that in germany Mercedes Maybach S 650 costs cca 200,000 Euro and Mercedes AMG S 65 cca 237,000 Euro.
                                    Will you not opt for the new Multibeam headlights you will get the old shaped prefacelift lights.
