      The vehicle occupants can switch the fragrance on and off, as well as adjust its intensity. Use of this feature does not change the odour of the interior permanently, nor do the fragrance molecules settle on the textile surfaces in the car or the occupants' clothing. The fragrance is subtle, is dispersed gently and subsides again quickly.

      There is a container in the glove compartment for the glass flacon with the different fragrances (FREESIDE MOOD, PACIFIC MOOD, AGARWOOD MOOD, NIGHTLIFE MOOD, DOWNTOWN MOOD, SPORTS MOOD) , which are intended to remind one of a perfume. The air in the interior is cleaned through ionising with oxygen and can thus significantly contribute to the feeling of well-being. The package includes air filters that continuously clean the air in the vehicle interior.

      The active multicontour seats with ENERGIZING massage function and dynamic function literally strengthen the driver's and front passenger's backs and allow them to arrive more relaxed.

      The inflatable air chambers provide maximum seating comfort and lateral support. The massage programmes enhance well-being – based on the principle of a relaxing hot-stone massage.

      Carbon-fibre designs have become indispensable in motor sport. That is because they are light, strong and incidentally look extremely sporty. Just like the elements in this equipment package, which will turn your vehicle into an extremely attractive-looking sports car.

      High-quality genuine carbon inserts set striking sporty highlights from all points of view – from the front apron cross-strut to the exterior mirror housings and side sill panel inserts to the rear-apron insert.

      The AMG Exterior Carbon-Fibre package refines the vehicle with high-end carbon-fibre trim, such as e.g. the exterior mirror housings or the carbon-fibre inserts in the panel of the longitudinal member.

      Sit back and relax. Make yourself comfortable Let the unparalleled travel comfort of the new S-Class Saloon begin – with a host of adjustment and setting options for the perfect position.

      The front passenger seat can be electrically moved forward by a further 77 mm. This enables the passenger seated behind it to enjoy the journey even more. The noticeably larger legroom allows a more comfortable resting position. This is assisted by an electrically extending footrest.

      The outer head restraints automatically extend themselves if someone gets into the rear of the car, which increases occupant safety.

      The Chauffeur package comprises the following components:

      • Chauffeur position front-passenger seat
      • EASY ADJUST luxury head restraint for the front passenger, folding and removable
      • Footrest, power-retractable on the front passenger side

      The intelligent combination of various safety features is a factor in effectively protecting the vehicle against break-ins, theft and towing. An alarm is triggered upon unauthorised intrusions or changes in the vehicle's position.

      The Anti-Theft Protection package provides audible and visual warnings if the vehicle is broken into or stolen, such as in the event of unauthorised opening of the vehicle doors, boot lid or bonnet. The system is activated automatically when the vehicle is locked via the remote control.

      Tow-away protection reacts to changes in the vehicle's position. This function can be deactivated as necessary if the vehicle needs to be transported or towed away.

      The stylishly coordinated combination of high-quality appointments meets the highest standards in comfort, quality and design. The effect is heightened in particular by nappa leather seats with contrasting topstitching and generous use of wood trim.

      Additional elements at a glance:

      • Illuminated door sills with "Mercedes Benz" lettering
      • Velour floormats
      • Roof lining and sunblinds in DINAMICA microfibre
      • Upper section of dashboard, door centre panels, centre armrest and grab handles in nappa leather with contrasting topstitching
      • Boot loading sill in stainless steel
      • Ruffled pockets in nappa leather on the front seat backrests
      • Seat upholstery layout with diamond pattern design

      This combination of complementary safety and assistance systems helps to relieve driver stress, reduce the risk of accidents and improve protection both for the occupants and for other road users.

      DISTRONIC Active Distance Assist regulates the distance from vehicles driving ahead up to a speed of 210 km/h.

      Active Brake Assist with cross-traffic function and tailback emergency braking function can help prevent or mitigate the effects of accidents with vehicles driving or crossing ahead as well as in situations with pedestrians crossing the road ahead.

      Active Emergency Stop Assist kicks into action if the driver does not respond to repeated prompts of the intelligent hands-off warning system to place his or her hands back on the wheel. It brakes the vehicle to a stop in the lane in which it is travelling.

      Active Lane Keeping Assist can warn the driver of unintentional lane departures and help return the vehicle to its lane by one-sided brake interventions.

      At speeds between 80 and 180 km/h, Active Lane Changing Assist can help in changing lanes conveniently, if the driver initiates the manoeuvre by operating the turn indicators and the system recognises that the traffic situation allows it.

      When changing lane, the Active Blind Spot Assist can warn the driver of the presence of a vehicle in the blind spot sector and, through one-sided braking interventions, help prevent a collision.

      Evasive Steering Assist can help a driver who in a dangerous situation decides to swerve to avoid a pedestrian recognised by the assistance system's radar and stereo camera.

      PRE-SAFE® PLUS can trigger preventive occupant protection measures before an impending rear impact. This includes warning the traffic following behind, activating the belt tensioners and locking the brakes of the vehicle once it has stopped.

      State-of-the-art airbag technology ensures that the passengers in the outer rear seats are also protected in the best possible way. The Rear Seat Safety package includes side airbags in the rear on the left and right side for a heavy side impact. The beltbags help to further reduce the load levels in a frontal collision.

      Side airbags complement the standard window airbags and in heavy side impacts can help further reduce the risk of injury on the outer rear seats. Inflatable beltbags replace the standard belt straps on the outer rear seats. As with the standard belts, they have pyrotechnical tighteners and force limiters and, when inflated, offer a greater contact area for the upper body of the rear passengers in order to reduce loads.

      The system conveniently opens, starts and locks the vehicle – just by carrying the electronic key. The HANDS-FREE ACCESS function allows contact-free and fully automatic opening and closing of the boot.

      In addition, the driver can open and close the boot lid by pressing the key's remote control buttons. HANDS-FREE ACCESS is a further convenience function. With a kicking motion beneath the rear bumper, the boot lid can be automatically opened and closed.

      Other elements of the package:

      • Handle recess lighting
      • Remote boot lid closing
      • KEYLESS-GO access and drive authorisation system

      Many functions. Intuitive operation. This equipment is practical, saves time and ensures that you will always be able to sit in the position that is most pleasant for you. For comfort and safety on every journey in your Mercedes-Benz.

      If the vehicle is used by several persons, the Memory Package offers particular operating convenience. Up to three different positions for the power front seats, steering column and exterior mirrors can be stored and retrieved at the touch of a button.

      The six-way adjustable luxury front head restraints enhance seating comfort and improve lateral support for the occupant's head. The switches are clearly and logically arranged in the doors for intuitive operation. As soon as the driver or front passenger selects his or her setting by pressing the button, the height of the seat, angle of the seat cushions and backrest, steering wheel and exterior mirrors are all automatically moved into their saved positions.

      So as to be able to keep things constantly in view when parking, the exterior mirror on the front-passenger side also has a parking function. This moves the exterior mirror on the front-passenger side automatically into a position giving the driver a better kerbside view as soon as reverse gear is engaged.

      Other elements of the Memory package:

      • 4-way lumbar support for driver and front passenger
      • Automatic dimming for interior and exterior mirrors
      • Luxury head restraints for driver and front passenger
      • PRE-SAFE® positioning function for front-passenger seat

      As standard equipment available for S 560 4MATIC, S 560 4MATIC long wheelbase and Mercedes-AMG S 63 4MATIC+ long wheelbase.

      Active Parking Assist facilitates the search for and selection of a parking space, as well as parking and leaving parallel and end-on parking spaces or garages. The 360° camera transmits a realistic image to the display of the multimedia system, supporting the driver when parking and manoeuvring.

      The camera is automatically activated, amongst other things, by engaging reverse gear, or by driver command as required.

      The vehicle and its surroundings can be illustrated on the display of the multimedia system from a bird's-eye view and obstacles around the vehicle and below the window line are also shown to drivers.

      The top view display occurs in the event of a deactivated wide-angle view for the front or rear camera in the screen area; various views can be selected on the right side.

      The Parking Package with reversing camera facilitates the search for and selection of a parking space as well as entering and leaving parallel and end-on parking spaces or garages. Active Parking Assist steers the vehicle into parking spaces with assistance – in conjunction with automatic transmission including speed control and automatic gear change.

      The reversing camera and the Active Parking Assist help to reduce the risk of colliding with obstacles to the front, side and rear of the vehicle.

      The Rear Cross Traffic Alert can warn or automatically activate emergency braking if crossing traffic is recognised when reversing. The information of the Active Parking Assist PARKTRONIC and the reversing camera is attractively shown on the display of the multimedia system.

      With the Remote Parking package, it is up to the driver to decide on the most convenient way to park: from the driver's seat assisted by the reversing camera and steering movements of Active Parking Assist or from outside the vehicle with assistance of Remote Parking Assist.

      It can be operated from outside the vehicle using an app. The vehicle can be made to exit a narrow parking space or garage in the same convenient way.

      The components of the Remote Parking package:

      • KEYLESS-GO
      • Parking package with 360-degree camera
      • Remote Parking Assist

      The best possible seating comfort on the outer rear seats is ensured by active multicontour seats, which can be even more individually adjusted by inflatable air chambers. The drive dynamic function improves lateral support and the ENERGIZING massage function enhances well-being – also with added heat if required.

      The rear passengers are able to individually adjust the air chambers in the lumbar and shoulder areas to suit their personal physique. A 4-way lumbar support additionally supports the spine. When on the move, the side bolsters automatically and dynamically adapt to vehicle movements to provide even better lateral support on winding roads and when driving in a sporty manner.

      The ENERGIZING massage function stimulates and relaxes the back muscles as required, with 14 air chambers, six programs and two intensities. This function helps to ensure a relaxed and refreshed arrival after a long journey. The combination of gentle pressure and pleasant warmth is particularly effective.

      The electrically operated roller sun blinds for the rear window and rear side windows enable the passengers to shield themselves from direct sunshine and prying eyes. Visibility to the outside is maintained.

      The roller blind for the rear window is unobtrusively mounted on the parcel shelf and can be conveniently operated at the touch of a button from the driver's or front-passenger's seat. Thanks to perforations in the blind material, there is practically no sight restriction from inside the vehicle.

      On cold days, the seat, armrest and steering wheel heating function very rapidly ensures cosy warmth from all surfaces with which the driver and passengers come into contact. Each occupant has a choice between three heating levels.

      The heated steering wheel rim warms the grip surface of the steering wheel to around 35 degrees Celsius in the shortest of times, thus ensuring your hands are pleasantly warm. It is switched on and off by turning the control stalk to adjust the multifunction steering wheel.

      The vehicle interior can be further customised stylishly with this exclusive package. The backs of the front seat backrests are additionally faced in elegant wood trim, as are the door centre panels and the covers of the rear air vents.

      High-quality genuine carbon fibre impressively underscores the engine's credentials: with a cover that accentuates both the sporting pedigree of the vehicle and the ordered arrangement of the components under the bonnet.

      When not in use, the trailer coupling can be folded behind the rear bumper to save space. The coupling is simply folded out to attach a car trailer or mount a bicycle carrier. There is a release switch in the boot.

      When driving with a car/trailer combination, Trailer Stability Assist provides the driver with additional assistance over and above the standard-fit ESP® Electronic Stability Program. If the car/trailer combination starts to swing from side to side more than once while driving, the system recognises the problematic driving situation and ensures the swinging stops quickly through repeated, short brake actuations.

      An extremely attractive electronic key with trim frame is used to lock and unlock the vehicle. The electronic key does not feature an ignition key function thanks to the standard KEYLESS-GO start function.

      The following specifications are available for the new S-Class Saloon:

      • In high-gloss black with trim surround in matt chrome
      • In high-gloss black with trim surround in high-gloss chrome
      • In high-gloss white with trim surround in high-gloss chrome
      • In high-gloss white with trim surround in matt chrome

      In addition to the standard central locking system, the boot lid can be reinforced further by two massive locking devices to transport valuable items in a particularly secure manner. They are operated automatically by locking or unlocking the vehicle.

      The adaptive windscreen wiper system provides the driver with an optimum view even while wiping. Washer fluid is sprayed directly ahead of the wiper blades and wiped away immediately. The heating system effectively reduces the risk of icing.

      Little nozzles in a distributor rail on the wiper arm direct the washer fluid just ahead of the blade. The fluid is wiped away without any delay and the driver's line of vision is restored much more quickly.

      The cleaning fluid container, adaptive windscreen wiper system and the washer fluid pipes can all be heated, which affords them much better protection against icing up. This way they make it possible to clean the front and rear windscreens more effectively even at low temperatures.

      MAGIC SKY CONTROL gives you an open-air feeling at the touch of a button. The two-section panoramic sliding sunroof changes from dark to transparent and vice-versa in a matter of seconds. Each of the two sections of the roof can be darkened to a different tone.

      When the glass is darkened, the vehicle interior heats up considerably less. MAGIC SKY CONTROL is activated by means of a switch in the overhead control unit. By applying an electrical charge to the glass construction, the particles in the glass align themselves in such a way that light can penetrate through the pane. Passengers can enjoy an unobstructed view to the skies and a particularly light and friendly atmosphere in the interior.

      When switched off the glass darkens. The particles redistribute themselves randomly and block out a major part of the light trying to penetrate.

      As current to the roof ceases the moment the vehicle key is withdrawn from the ignition, the glass darkens automatically as soon as the vehicle is parked. This both reduces the vehicle's heating up and obstructs the view into the vehicle interior.

      With its large glazed areas, this roof system ensures a particularly bright and welcoming ambience in the interior. It consists of a fixed panorama glass sunroof at the rear and an electrically operated glass sliding roof for ventilation of the interior as required.

      When the roof is open, the interior can be naturally ventilated to suit individual requirements using different opening positions. A net-like wind deflector keeps disturbing turbulence out and keeps the noise level pleasantly low. Two-part roller sun blinds in the appointments colour can be closed using one-touch control if the sun is shining in too brightly.

      The panoramic sliding sunroof can be operated via the multifunction switch in the roof unit, and it can also be opened (summer opening) or closed (convenience closing) from outside the vehicle using the electronic ignition key.

      The black-painted mud flaps (front and rear) protect against stone pitting and scratches. In addition they also protect following traffic against flying stones, spray water and soiling and also help minimise spray fog formation.

      Electrical devices such as a laptop or tablet computer can be connected to the vehicle's power supply with the 230V socket in the rear compartment. It is positioned in the rear section of the centre console or in conjunction with the First-Class Rear appointments in the stowage compartment of the Business console.

      With their especially high-quality velour, edging in nappa leather and elaborate "AMG" metal badges, the AMG floormats contribute to create an even more luxurious ambience. At the same time the quiet-running characteristics of the vehicle are further improved.

      The sporty 3-spoke AMG performance steering wheel has a flattened lower section and a black 12 o'clock marking. The sporty design is rounded off by AMG-specific silver-coloured aluminium shift paddles and a chrome-plated "AMG" badge. The touch control buttons on the right and left are for operating the instrument cluster and multimedia system and stand for very high operator ergonomics.

      The design in nappa leather / DINAMICA microfibre ensures greater grip during sporty driving manoeuvres.

      AMG trim elements in Carbon-fibre and black piano lacquer lend the interior a high quality visual and tactile appeal. Carbon fibre is used mainly in motor sports because it is ultra-light yet extremely robust. Its striking technical design lends the interior an exclusive dynamism. On the other hand the sporty aspect of the AMG trim elements in piano lacquer black give the vehicle an impressive value appeal.

      Removable inserts transform the two stowage compartments in the front and rear of the centre console into practical lidded ashtrays. This feature is rounded out with two cigarette lighters.

      The dual, illuminated sun visor features - in addition to the standard folding and swivelling sun visor - a second folding sun visor beneath it. This allows both the driver and front passenger to have anti-dazzle protection at the front and at the side at the same time.

      The EASY ADJUST luxury head restraints offer driver and front passenger considerably more comfort and safety. The distance between head and restraint as well as the height are electrically adjustable. In addition, the side bolsters provide comfortable lateral support as desired.

      In conjunction with the Chauffeur package for the rear, the head restraint for the front-passenger seat can be folded away if it is not occupied. The front-passenger seat (chauffeur seat) head restraint can be removed so as to use the extended berth position.

      This pull-out, height-adjustable box is perfect for storing smaller objects such as laptops, briefcases or items of clothing safely and slippage-protected. The maximum load is ten kilograms; the volume can be adjusted, from 7 to 55 litres.

      The brushed stainless-steel door sill panels set sporty exclusive highlights with their illuminated "Mercedes-Benz" lettering. At the same time, they protect the door area against damage.

      In the new S-Class Saloon even small stimuli are combined into a new comfort experience. ENERGIZING comfort controlExpected availability from 4th quarter of 2017. is an absolute highlight, enhancing driving performance and aiding concentration.

      Seven perfectly coordinated programs bundle convenience settings to boost well-being and high performance. Depending on the selected equipment, these cover air conditioning and fragrancing, massage function, ambient lighting and playing appropriate playlists.

      With the Executive seat the rear-seat passenger behind the front-passenger seat can enjoy even long journeys in absolute relaxation. The seat can recline into a comfortable lying positing at the touch of a button. The combination of leg-rest and heel support creates a comfortable bed.

      In conjunction with the Chauffeur package the reclined position of the outer rear seat behind the front- passenger seat can be further extended during breaks in the journey. The head restraint for the front passenger seat can be removed and the seat backrest folded completely down, in this way extending the reclining seat to the front.

      A cushionbag improves occupant protection when the backrest is reclined far. In the event of a severe frontal collision the cushionbag deploys under the seat cushion and thus helps to prevent rear-seat occupants sliding from under the seat belt (submarining).

      The first-class rear creates an ideal environment for passengers who want to be able to work with concentration and in comfort on the road. The extended-length business console transforms the rear into a mobile office with two individual seats.

      Two USB ports, two 12-volt sockets and the temperature-controlled cup holder as well as optional features such as folding tables, make for a comfortable travelling and working environment.

      The elements at a glance:

      • Illuminated stowage compartment
      • Stowage compartment with two 12-volt sockets
      • Stowage compartment with 230-volt connection (optional)
      • Aux-in and USB connection
      • Two temperature-controlled cup holders with dimmed interior illumination and function illumination in red/blue (warm/cold)
      • Folding tables in the rear (optional)
      • Refrigerated compartment in the rear (optional)
      • Mobile phone and handset (optional)
      • Cigarette lighter (in conjunction with ashtray inserts)

      The power rear seats ensure travelling comfort made to measure. The backrests of the two outer luxury seats can be reclined to an angle of up to 37 degrees. Three preferred positions can be stored using memory keys.

      Additionally the angle of the cushion can be adjusted using a separate tilt adjustment. Further comfort features include the luxury head restraints with additional cushion, operation of the front passenger seat from the rear and the Memory function for saving and calling up personal seat positions.

      Open up to three different door or gate systems without a separate remote control – the garage door opener makes it happen. It is integrated into the rear-view mirror and supports many of the frequencies and codes used for garage-door systems in Europe.

      With the two high-quality folding tables, the Business console of the First-Class Rear can be converted into an office desk in seconds. The stowage trays provide space for a notebook or working documents.

      Cooled food and drinks always at hand – the refrigerated compartment provides this treat to passengers in the rear. It is elegantly integrated into the rear armrest and has a capacity of approx. 8.5 litres.

      The compact refrigeration system works on the thermoelectric principle and is powered by the vehicle's on-board electricity supply. By using the very latest in electronics, on the one hand optimal refrigeration is achieved, and on the other, the current uptake is such that the load on the battery is not too great. The refrigeration temperature – roughly between 4 and 15 degrees Celsius – can be set via two buttons, one for high and one for low refrigeration.

      Through the harmonious design and choice of materials used, no impression is given of a foreign object positioned there; and thanks to the modular fitting, it is easy to swap this out for a ski bag.

      The combination of high-quality nappa leather in the grip area and fine wood inserts on its upper and lower rims make this steering wheel a tactile and visual highlight.

      The ski bag, integrated into the rear armrest, is ideal for transporting skis – without having to install a ski rack or dirtying the interior and sports equipment. Up to four pairs of skis can be easily fitted and removed via the boot.

      For more interior comfort the windows are made of heat-insulating, noise-insulating and infrared-reflecting laminated safety glass all-round. A three-ply acoustic film further improves noise insulation.

      Available as standard equipment for the S 560 4MATIC, the long-wheelbase S 560 4MATIC and the long-wheelbase Mercedes-AMG S 63 4MATIC+..

      Homeliness, naturalness and warmth – this is what the fine wood trim elements communicate. Worked by skilled master craftsmen, their delicate grain enhances their quality appeal significantly.

      The following wood trim options are available for the new S-Class Saloon:

      • High-gloss, black poplar wood
      • Burr walnut, high-gloss brown
  • Safety and assistance systems

      If no-one is sitting in the front-passenger seat or if a child seat is detected, the front-passenger airbag is automatically deactivated. This way small children are protected from injuries caused by a deployment of the front-passenger airbag. The presence of a child seat is detected by means of a pressure sensor.

      Available as standard for the long-wheelbase Mercedes-AMG S 63 4MATIC+.

      This airbag, integrated in the straps of the outer seat belts, can deploy in the event of a severe front impact. When the beltbag inflates, the strap can expand to three times its original width to reduce the load on the seat occupant's chest.

      The fire extinguisher is mounted just under the front of the driver's seat and is easily accessible.

      While the night time accounts for only 20 per cent of all traffic volume, 40 per cent of all fatal accidents happen during that time. This system enables the driver to see people or larger animals sooner in the dark. They are clearly shown in the instrument display.

      A camera working together with two LED infrared headlamps projects objects that might otherwise go unseen onto the display in the instrument display. This shows a greyscale picture of the scene ahead of the vehicle, which has sharp resolution and is pleasant on the eyes, highlighting any people and animals it has registered. Additionally, if the spotlight function is switched on, the front headlamp will flash at any person spotted on the front-passenger's side of the road.

      Run-flat tyres do not to need to be changed immediately in the event of a puncture. It is possible to drive on without a major loss in comfort – for up to 80 kilometres at a top speed of 80 km/h, depending on the load. This equipment is available instead of the TIREFIT tyre sealant.

      In a side-on collision the sidebags can help to protect the torsos of the rear passengers. They are integrated into the rear side panelling and deploy at chest height between the side of the vehicle and the occupants.

      They are deployed if the crash sensors detect a severe side-on collision.

      The TIREFIT tyre sealant is a fast temporary solution that makes it possible to carry on to the nearest workshop in the event of a tyre puncture. It is filled into the flat tyre using a tyre inflation compressor located in the boot and seals tyre punctures.

      MULTIBEAM LED brings light to darkness. Mercedes-Benz sets new benchmarks in design, technology and driving safety with its innovative headlamp technology. The MULTIBEAM LED headlamps react extremely quickly to the current road and traffic conditions with individually controllable LEDs. The partial main beam leaves out any detected road users – on an open, straight road the ULTRA RANGE main beam switches to the maximum headlamp range permitted by law.

      Available as standard for the long-wheelbase Mercedes-AMG S 63 4MATIC+..

      The ambient lighting orchestrates the interior like a work of art. Its 64 colours and 10 colour worlds underline the technically modern atmosphere and structure the space. In dynamic mode the colours even alternate. Emotional effect: colours accentuate the temperature setting.

      The elements of the ambience lighting at a glance:

      • 10 colour scenarios, eight of which comprising two colours each and two consisting of five colours each
      • "Coming Home" function
      • Three lighting zones: footwell, trim level and Widescreen Cockpit
      • Dynamic mode: alternating colour distribution
      • LED brightness can be set in five levels and four zones
      • A corresponding colour scenario for each display style of the Widescreen Cockpit: "Glacier Blue" for Classic, "Red Moon" for Sport, "Down Blue" for Progressive

      A clear view in just a few minutes without scraping when the windscreen is iced over. In around three and a half minutes, a heating unit integrated in the windscreen melts the ice enough for it to be removed easily with the windscreen wipers.

      The heat-insulating dark-tinted glass used for the rear side windows and the rear window protects the rear-seat passengers from prying eyes and direct sunlight. At the same time the dark tint underscores the sporty character of the vehicle.

      All decisions from a single source. A handset with touchscreen serves both as a telephone and as a remote control for the seat functions of the optional Rear-Seat Comfort package. Depending on specifications the receiver is located in a cradle in the rear armrest or the centre console, which automatically charges it.

      Operation is intuitive using four keys and a touchscreen. The system has its own hands-free zone in the rear, an LTE-enabled telephone aerial and allows call transfer from the rear to the front and vice versa.

      The telephony function requires a mobile phone to be connected to COMAND Online or the Individual Entertainment system in the rear via Bluetooth®. Depending on the Bluetooth® profiles of the mobile phone, contacts, text messages and emails, as well as other functionalities, can be displayed on the handset.

      The functions of the COMAND Online control and display can also be conveniently operated from the rear with the remote control. This relieves strain on the driver, allowing him to fully concentrate on the traffic.

      The digital radio offers excellent reception quality with noise-free sound in CD quality and additional information to accompany the respective station, such as album covers, weather maps, news and traffic maps. The three digital tuners enable the reception of digital terrestrial radio stations that broadcast in the DAB, DAB+ and DMB standards.

      Keep an overview of key driver information without taking your eyes off the road – thanks to the head-up display. It projects a virtual image (approx. 21 x 7 cm) within the driver's field of vision. This image appears to float over the bonnet around 2 metres ahead of the driver.

      The high-resolution display is in colour. Depending on the installed equipment, the system displays, for example navigation instructions, current speed, speed limits or cruise control or DISTRONIC Active Distance Assist settings.

      A special light sensor adapts the brightness of the display in line with ambient light conditions. This ensures that the display remains clearly visible even on sunny days or at night.

      The height of the image can be varied according to the size of the driver. This height setting is stored (in combination with the seat memory function). The display content and brightness are also individually selectable.

      Experience top-class entertainment in brilliant quality on the road, too. This is made possible by Individual Entertainment. Films on DVD, internet, video games, music – passengers enjoy their very own personal entertainment programme in the rear.

      Two 10.2-inch displays and wireless headphones provide brilliant picture and sound quality.

      It is also possible to use other, external audio and video resources (for example, MP3 players, USB sticks, Apple® devices such as iPod® and iPad® or games consoles) via the two USB slots and analogue AUX-in jacks in the rear seat armrest.

      An option of one or two wireless headphones are offered as special equipment.

      The LTE communications module, with a dedicated SIM card, which transfers data particularly swiftly and reliably, fulfils the technical requirements for using Mercedes me connect services, some of which need to be ordered separately from Daimler AG.

      Multifunction telephony makes it possible to recharge mobile telephones and to connect via the vehicle's exterior aerial – without any need for a cable or for a cradle. The wireless connection to the LTE-enabled exterior aerial on the vehicle can be used by all mobile phones.

      Watching TV in excellent quality and with a large channel selection – the TV receiver makes this also possible in the vehicle. It supports reception of digital stations broadcasting in DVB-T2 standard as well as the reception of coded stations thanks to the CA slot to house the respective CI+ modules.

      The mobile phone as a digital vehicle key: Near Field Communication (NFC) technology makes it possible to lock and unlock the vehicle, for example, using the mobile phone instead of the vehicle key.

      NFC can also facilitate a rapid connection between the multi-media system and your mobile phone – simply by touching the touchpoints on the "NFC" logo on the centre console. Phone calls can then be made via the Bluetooth® hands-free system.

      The basic fitting integrated into the backrests of the driver and front passenger seats in the vehicle provides a universal and convenient connection for a host of entertainment devices and also features a power connection.

      A plug-in connection is on the rear of each front seat and is protected by a child-proof magnetic cover which can be released automatically by using Mercedes-Benz Genuine Accessories.

      Components of basic fitting:

      • Integrated 12 V, 6 A power supply
      • Magnetic lock for optimum child safety

      The rear passengers enjoy even greater climate comfort thanks to the additional rear climate control system with two additional climate zones for the rear seats. The temperature, air flow and air distribution can be individually set and the footwell temperature can be adjusted in five levels using a control panel on the rear of the centre console.

      If you take a seat in the rear on cold days, you can enjoy cosy warmth in no time at all with the heated seats. Passengers on the two outer seats can choose from three levels at the touch of a button. The heating automatically turns itself down and off.

      Thanks to active ventilation, on hot days the climate-controlled seats quickly cool down the surface of the seats to a pleasant temperature and create a balanced seat climate. In cold weather the on-demand seat heating provides cosy warmth as required.

      Integrated in the seat upholstery are fans which uniformly distribute the airflow (three intensity levels) under the leather backrest and seat cushion covers. The air flows through the fine perforation and quickly cools down the surface of the seats to a pleasant temperature – even if the vehicle has been heated by intense sunlight for a longer period of time.

      On cold days you can turn on the three-level adjustable seat heating. In conjunction with the air flow, this ensures that wet clothes dry more quickly.

      The climate-controlled rear seats rapidly cool the seat surfaces of the two outer rear seats to a pleasant temperature on hot days to ensure well-balanced seating comfort. In cold weather the on-demand seat heating provides cosy warmth as required.

      Ice-free vision and pleasant temperatures in the interior all year round right from the start of the journey are provided by the auxiliary heating system, which can also be remotely controlled through your smartphone. This represents a tangible gain in terms of comfort and safety, particularly when a garage cannot be used. In summer, the auxiliary ventilation can ensure increased comfort when entering the vehicle by cooling it down.

      The auxiliary heating system can heat or ventilate the vehicle's interior before your journey begins – using the operating button in the vehicle, by remote control or, regardless of where you are, using the smartphone. In winter conditions, this does away with – or shortens – the time-consuming job of scratching ice from frozen windscreens. The fuel-driven system operates independent of the engine.

      Very short stopping distance, precise pressure point and high fade resistance even under the most extreme operating conditions – the AMG ceramic high-performance compound braking system delivers motor-sport-level braking performance while weighing 40 percent less than conventional compound brake discs.

      The braking system with larger brake discs on the front axle offers a better and more stable deceleration. The perforated brake discs have a diameter of 370 millimetres. The brake callipers are adorned with "Mercedes-Benz" lettering.

      The fuel tank with volume increased to 80 litres makes a greater range possible before having to pull in to the next filling station.

      It sounds like magic, it's called magic and it feels like magic: a suspension that can foresee unevenness in the road and prepare accordingly. A stereo camera scans the road ahead so that the damping at each wheel can be optimally adapted to the unevenness to be met.

      This is made possible through the combination of the active suspension with continually adjustable dampers and the innovative ROAD SURFACE SCAN. With the aid of a stereo camera positioned behind the windscreen, the topography of the road ahead is registered precisely.

      From the images and data retrieved about the condition of the road surface, the system calculates in a split second the correct strategy for adjusting in advance the damping of each wheel so as to deal with the unevenness ahead in the best possible way.


      Furthermore, the active suspension effectively compensates any roll and pitching movements when pulling away, in curves and when braking. The continually adjustable dampers provide both comfortable basic damping as well as allowing a tighter setting, dependent on speed. All of this results in a combination of excellent comfort and impressive driving dynamics.
