Rarely have we seen a better flagship model than the S class. The brand with the star’s luxury sedan is an absolute reference in its category. Each new model of this product features the best and most up to date technology. The latest generation S Class is, for example, able to drive itself without any driver input and can read the road surface to adapt the car’s suspension in real time.

Delight all round as Hankook is selected as the exclusive original equipment supplier for the S class.  The tyre manufacturer has yet to specify which versions are concerned but has already announced that the Ventus Prime 2 – the brand’s high performance tyre - will be fitted as original equipment when the car hits the market.

The Ventus Prime 2 will be fitted in the 245/55 R17 102 W tyre size. According to Hankook, the tyre’s natural qualities such as driving comfort and low rolling noise played a decisive role in convincing Mercedes; qualities which are extremely important for this type of model.
