Diesel variant of S Class is equipped with a 3.0 litre V6 engine that generates a maximum power output of 255 Bhp along with a peak torque of 620 Nm. A 7G-Tronic automatic gearbox transmits power to the rear wheels. The robust engine enables the vehicle to propel from 0 to 100 kmph in a meager 6.8 seconds and touch a top speed mark of 248 Kmph.

The new S 350 TDI gets similar equipments as seen in its petrol variant S 500, however the auto maker has not equipped some of the features in S 350 TDI which are offered as standard on the petrol version. The new S 350 gets the Burmester sound system, though it is devoid of the 3D surround system. Inside the cabin, S 350 TDI is not bestowed with the Nappa leather, but it does get the leather upholstery. The 360 degree reversing camera is also missing; instead Mercedes Benz has embedded a normal reversing camera. Besides the forenamed features, night-vision package is also not available on the S 350 TDI.
