  • Maintains the desired speed for you.

    You won't want to be without the convenience of Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC in either flowing or stop-and-go traffic. The system takes the strain off you by automatically adapting your own speed to that of slower-moving vehicles in front. The desired distance can be set in several stages.

  • Gets you back on track.

    Active Lane Keeping Assist can warn you by means of steering wheel vibrations if you inadvertently drive over lane markings. If there is still no reaction, or in dangerous situations, the system can also intervene actively with course-correcting steering intervention to bring you back into lane.

  • PRE-SAFE® Plus

    In conjunction with the latest generation of the Driving Assistance Package, PRE-SAFE® Plus uses radar sensors and stereo cameras to monitor the vehicle's surroundings. If necessary, it will trigger precautionary measures to protect the occupants.

Drag horizontally
  • Frontal airbags for the rear-seat passengers.

    Innovative air cushions make travelling in the rear an even safer experience. The  rear airbags are integrated into the backrests of the front seats and deploy in the event of a severe front impact. They unfold gently to protect passengers in the outer seats wearing seatbelts against contact with the front seats. In this way the head and neck can be subjected to significantly lower loads.

    Only available for the long-wheelbase version of the S-Class Saloon (V223).
  • Provides the driver with transparency over their attention level.

    The ATTENTION ASSIST drowsiness detection system can detect typical signs of fatigue or growing inattentiveness on long, monotonous journeys, or recognise an impending episode of microsleep on the part of the driver and take action of its own accord to warn them. For this function the S-Class must be configured with the new 3D driver display.

DIGITAL LIGHT is optimally adjusted to other road users and to the surrounding conditions at all times. What is more, the HD system harnesses the combined power of more than one million pixels per headlamp to support you in facing any challenge. The high-resolution light can specifically highlight individual areas, project information onto the road and optimise orientation. All with an unprecedented level of precision at all times.

Specifically highlights individual areas.

A module with over one million pixels extends the MULTIBEAM LED system. The system works like a projector and responds with high-resolution light to changing traffic, road or weather conditions.

Individual areas can also be specifically highlighted. In addition, DIGITAL LIGHT helps you by projecting information onto the road and optimising orientation. Highbeam Assist Plus also cuts out oncoming traffic or vehicles in front with a level of precision never seen before.

Trailblazing lighting functions.

Beyond sophisticated adjustment to the surroundings, the DIGITAL LIGHT system is trailblazing in the truest sense of the word. In roadworks, for example, a specific lane of light is projected.

This marking represents the width of the vehicle so that you can focus more effectively on the narrower carriageway. The intelligent technology highlights pedestrians in the danger zone with a spotlight function and clarifies their position with projected direction points.

Warns you before you get to one-way streets or red traffic lights.

If you are driving against the permitted direction of travel, as may happen on motorway slip roads or one-way streets, for example, a warning symbol notifies you.

This can avoid you becoming a wrong-way driver. The same symbol also warns you in a timely manner against driving through red lights or stop signs.
