Sedan Mercedes-Benz S-Class of the new generation did not cope with the “moose test”

In order to fully cope with the task, Mercedes-Benz S-Class did not have enough 3 km / h.

Experts from the Spanish km77.com decided to conduct a “moose test” for the luxury sedan Mercedes-Benz S-Class. In this test, the car must show good maneuverability. This “skill” is necessary if a sudden obstacle appears on the road.

Note that the German car coped with the task at a speed of 74 km / h, and the reference figure is 77 km / h. The reason was inadequate grip of the wheels with the road at this speed. At the same time, the specialists did not make big claims to handling – the control over the machine was at an excellent level.

For the test, a 2.9-liter diesel engine with 330 hp was used. A small excuse was the Bridgestone Turanza T005 tires, on which many cars could not cope with the “moose test”.

Note that the supercar Mercedes-AMG C 63 S Coupe delivered an excellent result of 80 km / h, but the new Mercedes-Benz CLA completely failed the test – only at a speed of 66 km / h it did not hit a single cone.

Earlier we told how the “moose test” was passed for the new generation Lexus LS sedan. The car could not reach the cherished mark of 77 km / h.
