I jumped at the opportunity to be chauffeur-driven in the new Mercedes-Benz AMG S 400 h for 4 days. I was told that my driver Johari will be waiting at my house at 8am to bring me wherever my heart desired.Well my heart desired a beach getaway, but the reality of it is that I was scheduled for a morning video shoot.
Entering the Mercedes-Benz S Class immediately made me feel like a million bucks, this is definitely a car to be chauffeur-driven in. The seats automatically made you feel comfortable, and your whole body just settles in nicely into the plush and comfortable seat with the options to lower and raise the seat. It’s perfect to catch a short nap in between meetings. The car is equipped with three screens for you to watch movies while in traffic with your very own remote control. Each passenger in the back seat has their own screen so you don’t have to share.
Johari asked if I was comfortable, and explained the features of the car. He asked if the temperature was okay, too hot or too cold? Boy, was I enjoying this experience. This also meant I didn’t have to go through the gruelling stress of morning traffic. I sat back and relaxed while answering work e-mails, coordinating photo shoots and replying to overdue whatapp messages. I had a lot of free time to check e-mails and read up on news, as I wasn’t wasting my time driving a car around. This is the kind of luxury I would love to have in my 30s -40s, the new Mercedes- Benz S Class, stands for Successful or even the Marie Claire women on Style and Substance.
“As a forerunner of the hybrid technology in Malaysia, the success of the S-Class has been astounding.
