What began with PRE-SAFE® more than ten years ago and continued with DISTRONIC PLUS has now become a new dimension in driving: Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive – comfort and safety have now been fused. You can see it and feel it in the S-Class.
Now the car not only has eyes in the front, but a 360-degree view that makes parking significantly easier. In addition, the stereo camera in the front windscreen can determine the positions of crossing objects and pedestrians and compute their track.
Thanks to the networking – our safety experts refer to it as "sensor fusion“ – the intelligent assistance systems access these data. They analyse complex situations and thanks to improved surround sensors are even better at recognising road traffic hazards.
Equipment availability depends on engine and configuration selected. You will find details in the equipment information for each model.
"Not until great ideas are implemented with excellence do they have a measurable value. Whether ABS or airbag, ESP® or DISTRONIC, many pioneering safety solutions had their breakthrough in an S-Class. The current S-Class, too, is a technology platform that demonstrates down to the smallest detail that quality and safety are inseparable at Mercedes-Benz.
