S-Class Technical Highlights:

    • Driver Assistance System: the enhanced intelligent hands-off detection includes sensing via Touch Control Buttons and is sensitive to specific conditions; can be activated in a wider range of speeds:
      • Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC® is able to follow a vehicle in front at a pre-selected distance at a wider range of speeds
      • Active Steering Assist functions at a wider range of speeds and can now actively intervene even if road lines are unclear or non-existent at certain speeds; can now function in curves with a tighter radius
        • Active Emergency Stop Assist brakes the vehicle to a standstill in its lane if it detects that the driver is no longer actively driving the vehicle while it is on the move with Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC and Active Steering Assist engaged. Can now unlock the doors when the vehicle is stationary to allow first responders immediate access to the vehicle's interior. With available mbrace® Secure, the system simultaneously makes an emergency call
        • Active Lane Change Assist aids the driver when changing lanes. When turn signal is activated , this feature will aid with steering into the adjacent lane if it detects the lane is empty
      • Active Speed Limit Assist can adapt vehicle speed to identified speed limits and can now adjust preemptively when speed limits are going to change
      • Route-Based Speed Adaptation is able to reduce the speed by referencing integrated map data ahead of bends, junctions, roundabouts, toll booths and exit roads.
    • Active Brake Assist with Cross-Traffic Function is able to respond to crossing traffic, standing pedestrians and help bring the vehicle to a complete stop in order to eliminate or reduce impact severity
    • Evasive Steering Assist this system assists by adding calculated steering torque to aid in steering wheel movement when a driver deliberately or instinctively performs an evasive maneuver around a pedestrian in the vehicle’s path
    • Active Blind Spot Assist is active at a wider range of speeds and informs the driver to help avoid an imminent side impact by single-sided braking
    • Active Lane Keeping Assist is active now at a wider range of speeds to help keep the vehicle safely in its lane
    • Car-to-X Communication is a system in which the vehicle simultaneously acts as a receiver and transmitter, conveying warning messages and evaluating driving conditions, effectively allowing the driver to “see” much further down the road
    • PRE-SAFE® PLUS activates the PRE-SAFE safety measures when a collision from behind is imminent
    • PRE-SAFE® Sound omits a short interference signal if an imminent collision is detected, triggering a protective reflex in the human ear referred to as the “stapedius reflex,” which can help reduce hearing loss in the event of an accident
    • Touch Control Buttons are touch-sensitive controls on the steering wheel for easy control of the instrument cluster and multimedia system, similar to a smartphone interface, which responds to vertical and horizontal swiping movements
    • New generation of COMAND navigation system with dual 12.3” high-resolution displays within a single bonded glass panel
    • ENERGIZING Comfort: enhanced health and wellness functionality boosts drivers’ attentiveness and well-being while reducing drowsiness and stress
    • AIR BODY CONTROL: available multi-chamber air suspension at all corners
