Before I cut into the S-Class seat, I was certain there was an air-conditioned unit cooling the seats because they can get cold so quickly. What I found are a series of fans located in the base of the seat that spin rapidly to cool your seat.
I learned that the coldest air in the car is at the floor level so Mercedes is simply running that air upwards and putting it to good use. You might be surprised to learn just how many air pockets there are inside. Those little things inflate to massage your back, but not until you’ve already felt how comfortable the seats are thanks to all the cushioning and padding.
I can go on about the amazing features in the S-Class seat but perhaps you’re best suited to watch our video dissecting each area of the seat to discover “What’s Inside?”. I knew Mercedes-Benz was luxury but now I truly understand why.
