Recently I was grabbing a cup of coffee at one of my favorite Starbucks in Bergen County.
As I drove past the newly revamped Mercedes-Benz dealer, Benzel-Busch, I noticed that something special was sitting on the showroom floor. That would be the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
Though it was late on a weekday night, I haven't seen the car in the flesh so I dragged one of my lady friends into the showroom to check it out. Unfortunately, the battery was dead so I couldn't play around with it.
What I can tell you is that this vehicle looks slick in person and that the interior has been raised a bar or two — the plastic buttons and trim bits that seemed less-than-impressive in the last-gen product have been overhauled with real metal and trim bits that reminds me of the Bentley Continental GT and Flying Spur Speed I've driven.
So, several takeaways:
- If you're in the New York tri-state area, head over to Benzel-Busch as MBNA HQ — located a stone's throw from the dealer — lent them a car for folks to check out. I spoke with the sales manager, Salvino, who is well informed on the product and can be reached here: 201.567.1400 x269 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
- If you're in-market for an all-new 2014 S-Class, make sure to head over to our sister website, DealerRater.com, so YOU can find the BEST Mercedes-Benz dealer to cut a deal with!
- The 2014 S-Class launches on October 20 but don't be surprised if dealers get their allotment sooner and some "slip" out — we've seen this happen before with other automakers.
