What began with PRE-SAFE® ten years ago and continued with DISTRONIC PLUS we have now advanced into 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 new 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.
The availability of equipment depends on the engine and configuration selected. You will find details in the equipment information for each model.
