New Mercedes S-Class goes on sale
Deliveries in Europe will start in December. Daimler Mobility AG offers individual financing and use models. The range spans from multi-year financing contracts and flexible leasing to long-term and short-term rentals, as well as on-demand mobility solutions and an in-car payment function. The S-Class can be experienced with almost all senses vision, touch, hearing, and smell and also offers numerous innovations that provide driver support, protection and interaction, for example.
The Driving Assistance Package and the MBUX infotainment system with the "Hey Mercedes" voice assistant come with many new functions, and both are integrated as standard. The large central display in portrait orientation is the visual highlight in the interior. In Germany, this screen features OLED technology as standard. At the touch of a button, the new 3D driver display (EUR 1,148.401) provides real depth perception of the surroundings for the first time, thanks to eye-tracking.
The very large head-up display with augmented reality content (EUR 3,468.401 in package with 3D driver display) is equally impressive. The MBUX Interior Assist (EUR 626.401) recognizes numerous desired control inputs by means of cameras in the overhead control panel and learning algorithms. Active ambient lighting (EUR 916.401) with around 250 LEDs is integrated into the driver assistance systems and can visually reinforce their warnings. Furthermore, the lighting can provide feedback acknowledging control inputs or "Hey Mercedes" commands.
In the event of a severe frontal collision, the rear airbag (EUR 580) can considerably reduce the loads acting on the heads and shoulders of the belted outer rear seat occupants. Thanks to rear-axle steering (EUR 1,5083), the S-Class feels as maneuverable as a compact car around town. The revolutionary headlamp technology DIGITAL LIGHT (EUR 2,192.403) enables completely new functions, e.g. the projection of guidelines or warning symbols onto the road surface. ■
