      Getting in and feeling at home – with its pleasant, indirect light the ambience lighting creates an unrivalled sense of well-being throughout the interior. Seven different colours and five dimming levels are available to create the desired lighting mood.

      When the doors are opened, the ambience lighting switches itself on and greets the passengers with a "Welcome home" effect. It is also switched on if the exterior lighting is activated; it is dimmable and can also be switched off completely.

      The brushed stainless-steel AMG door sill panels with "AMG" lettering illuminated in white add a sporty and exclusive touch. At the same time, they protect the door area against damage.

      Available for additional engine variants as part of a package.

      The outside air temperature is shown on the multifunction display of the instrument cluster. This ensures, for example, that the driver is informed when temperatures drop close to freezing point and particular attention should be paid to the road conditions.

      Also available for many additional engine variants in conjunction with the AMG Line equipment.

      The status indicator lets the driver know whether all rear-seat passengers are securely belted in. The instrument display shows how many rear-seat seat belt catches are engaged in their corresponding buckles.

      The climate-controlled glove compartment is especially useful in summer. It keeps snacks and beverages for the trip fresh for longer. The spacious, lockable compartment has a sturdy locking system, energy-saving LED lighting as well as pen and map holders.

      To enlarge the boot, the backrests in the rear compartment can be folded separately or together.

      The system allows the easy, rapid and safe attachment of i-Size and ISOFIX child seats in the rear for the best possible protection of the child in an accident. Top Tether anchoring points offer added safety by anchoring the child seat behind the rear head restraints.

      We prioritise safety in our vehicles – beginning with the standard equipment. To protect you and other road users. Proven systems protect you in situations that can occur daily in road traffic.

      The braking system increases driving comfort and safety. On the one hand, with the anti-lock braking system (ABS), it helps to master critical braking manoeuvres safely. On the other hand, it supports the driver with comfort functions in daily driving situations, such as for instance with the Hill-Start Assist function.

      The system also intervenes to support the driver on uphill gradients, thereby helping to make the journey more relaxed. The Hill-Start Assist function prevents the vehicle from rolling back when moving from the brake to the accelerator pedal

      By priming the brakes, the brake linings are already brought close to the discs should the driver abruptly take his foot off the accelerator. The valuable time won as a result shortens the braking response time and can thus reduce the stopping distance.

      Finally, the "brake drying" function provides further added safety: In wet conditions, short braking impulses unnoticeable to the driver remove the water film from the brake discs, which can considerably shorten the response time of the brakes.

      The flashing brake lights can help in an emergency situation to significantly shorten the reaction time of road users following behind. The LED adaptive brake lights thus make an important contribution to preventing rear-end collisions.

      Durable LED technology is deployed here, which ensures better recognisability than with conventional bulb sets. In emergency braking the brake lamps flash at a frequency of approx. five hertz, which has been proven to be effective in tests.

      If the vehicle is emergency-braked from a speed greater than 70 km/h, the hazard warning lamps are switched on automatically. This way the system provides additional safety, for example at the end of a tailback on a motorway.

      Our vehicles offer a wealth of safety technology. Some of which you'll never get to see. And this is a good thing, as it is only there for worst-case scenarios. To protect you and your passengers.

      In a severe frontal collision the airbags can help to protect the torso and head of the driver and front passenger. They also help to stabilise the whole body. This can mitigate the risk of severe injuries in an accident.

      Both front airbags are deployed in two stages, which are adjusted for the severity of the impact. The front-passenger airbag has an adaptive stage that additionally ensures that the cushioning effect can be varied in dependence of the seating position and physique of the front passenger.

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

      This system can help to prevent or at least mitigate the effects of accidents with vehicles ahead and with pedestrians crossing the road in front. It comprises a distance monitoring and collision warning function, braking support appropriate to the situation and an autonomous braking function.

      To keep critical situations from becoming even more critical: The anti-lock braking system, proven for decades, has been continuously improved with sophisticated digital technology in cooperation with Mercedes-Benz engineers.

      In particular during emergency braking, the anti-locking braking system (ABS) can make driving safer by preventing the wheels from locking. This assists the driver in maintaining control of the vehicle, for instance during evasive manoeuvres or when braking on a slippery road.

      Furthermore, the system ensures that the vehicle remains directionally stable and steerable while maintaining maximum braking power. In other words: ABS allows drivers to brake and steer simultaneously – allowing precise evasive manoeuvring – in order to avoid an accident.

      Moving off or accelerating on snow, wet roads or loose ground – under these conditions, acceleration skid control (ASR) reduces wheel slip to prevent the vehicle from skidding.

      The system uses speed sensors to monitor wheel slip. If the system detects a wheel starting to spin, acceleration skid control corrects the wheel speed by braking and intervening in the engine management system. This reduces wheel slip and minimises wheel spin.

      On longer trips, the driver's attention can lapse unnoticed. That is why ATTENTION ASSIST tirelessly watches out for the driver. At speeds between 60 and 200 km/h, the system analyses the driving behaviour and provides a timely reminder to take a break.

      This system can increase driving safety particularly on long trips and when driving at night. ATTENTION ASSIST monitors the steering behaviour of the driver to recognise typical signs of drowsiness and severe lapses of attention, and gives a visual and audible warning of impending microsleep.

      The background: sensors analyse driving behaviour to detect any changes from the previously determined individual driver profile.

      In spite of all precautions, critical situations can arise when driving in road traffic. That's when we step in to lend a hand. In this case, with the brake pressure needed to tackle the dangerous situation that has arisen.

      The system can recognise an emergency stop by the driver and increase the brake pressure within fractions of a second to shorten the stopping distance. To do so, Brake Assist interprets the speed at which the brake pedal is depressed.

      The anti-lock braking system (ABS) simultaneously meters the braking power up to the slip threshold so that the vehicle remains steerable. As soon as the driver releases the brake pedal, the automatic brake boosting is turned off again.

      In critical handling situations the ESP® Electronic Stability Program can keep the vehicle from skidding. With targeted braking interventions on individual wheels ESP® reduces oversteer or understeer tendencies, thus increasing handling safety.

      The ESP®-based system provides more stability and handling safety in particular when accelerating on bends. If the ESP® sensors register a tendency to understeer, it can reduce this tendency with a targeted braking intervention on the inside wheels.

      Headlamp Assist helps the driver to focus on essentials. Depending on the ambient light conditions, Headlamp Assist automatically switches the dipped beam on or off. In particular under rapidly changing light conditions, the system can enhance driving safety and relieve the burden on the driver, e.g. when driving into tunnels or a multi-storey car park.

      A handle below the light switch allows simple and safe operation of the electric parking brake. For even more convenience and safety the electric parking brake is automatically engaged or released in certain situations.

      Dependent on the accident configuration, the bonnet can be slightly raised in a frontal collision with a pedestrian. The increased clearance between the bonnet and the components in the engine compartment creates additional deformation space to absorb an impact sooner, and thus reduce the risk of injury.

      In an accident, every millisecond counts. That is why PRE-SAFE® Impulse acts lightning fast: In the early phase of a severe frontal collision, the safety belts pull the front-seat occupants deeper into the seat. When the load applied as a result of the collision reaches its peak, the retracted distance is released again in a controlled manner. This allows PRE-SAFE® Impulse to reduce the risk of injury.

      This function works on the front seats through the three-point safety belt system. The major difference between this and conventional systems is that the power pulling in the seat belt can be maintained for a significantly longer period of time than was hitherto usual.

      Decades of experience in safety technology have gone into every Mercedes-Benz vehicle – making critical situations more and more unlikely. If a hazardous situation should ever arise despite this, this system will assist you with preventive and protective measures.

      The system is able to identify critical handling situations in advance and initiate preventive measures for occupant protection in the event of an impending accident. These include reversible belt tensioning and automatic closing of any open windows, for example.

      The system can offer the following functions:

      • Prepares occupants and vehicle for a potential accident
      • Better protection against intrusion of objects into the interior by closing the windows in case of danger.
      • Supports the protective effect of seat belts and airbags depending on the vehicle model and installed vehicle equipment

      With the tyre-change tool kit, the wheel bolts can be quickly and simply unscrewed, allowing the wheel to be swiftly changed.

      Permanent monitoring of the tyre pressure increases driving safety and the service life of the tyres. The tyre pressure on all four wheels is monitored by sensors and shown in the instrument display.

      In strong gusts of crosswind, the system can help the driver to stay on course. Targeted brake interventions significantly reduce the vehicle's lateral drift. This enhances the driver's sense of security and helps prevent undue reactions.

      Driver and front passenger both have a 3-point safety belt with pyrotechnical belt tensioning and belt force limiters as well as a reversible belt tensioner. The upper seat belt guide is anchored on the B-pillar and is height-adjustable.

      It is pyrotechnically tightened at each of the three belt anchoring points depending on the nature and severity of the accident, and released again depending on the force (belt force limiters).

      In a side-on collision, the side airbags (combined thorax/pelvisbag) can help to protect the torso and pelvic area of driver and front passenger. They also help to stabilise the whole body. This can mitigate the risk of severe injuries in an accident.

      Cruise control with variable speed limiter allows relaxed and fuel-saving driving, especially on long journeys. In addition to the desired cruising speed, the system also allows an individual top speed to be set, so as to be sure to comply with speed limits, for instance.

      The daily routine and road traffic are stressful enough. That's why this Assist function is so useful. Your vehicle always has an overview of the current speed limit. Particularly useful on long or monotonous journey.

      The system is able to recognise speed limits, "no-entry" and "no-overtaking" signs and their cancellation, and show them in the instrument cluster. If the appropriate signs are posted, the system issues a visual and audible warning when the driver enters a one-way street against the specified direction of travel.

      The camera on the inside of the front windscreen captures signed speed limits, including those on gantry signs or in roadworks, for example. Its data are compared with the data in the navigation system and can be displayed both in the instrument display and in the map view.

      No overtaking signs and their discontinuation signs are registered and displayed. In addition, for no-entry signs, a visual and audible warning is issued in the instrument display (wrong-way warning) – an effective contribution towards preventing serious accidents caused by wrong-way drivers.

      The window airbag can cover the side window if a serious side-on collision or an overturn is detected, thereby helping to reduce the risk of an occupant's head hitting the side of the vehicle and helping prevent the intrusion of external objects into the interior of the vehicle. This protects the driver, front passenger and the passengers on the outer rear seats.

      The tail lamps show a characteristic design by day and night. Use of LED technology improves their visibility. The intensity of turn indicators and brake light varies depending on ambient light and speed to reduce the dazzle effect for other road others.

      Automatically dimming mirrors improve perceptual safety and relieve the burden on the driver. Depending on the incident dazzling and ambient light, the door mirror on the driver's side and the rear-view mirror dim automatically. Manual adjustment is not necessary.

      Available as optional equipment for the S 350 d 4MATIC, the long-wheelbase S 350 d 4MATIC, the S 400 d 4MATIC and the long-wheelbase S 400 d 4MATIC.

      The LED turn signal lamps integrated into the exterior mirrors improve recognition of an intended change of direction. This increases safety in road traffic.

      The LED high-performance headlamps provide more safety at night and an unmistakable, distinctive look. LED technology illuminates the road ahead better than conventional headlamps – and it uses less energy.

      The use of heat-insulating glass as opposed to conventional glass for the side windows, rear window and windscreen reduces heat radiation into the interior. This means that less energy is required to keep the interior constantly at the desired temperature.

      With nine forward gears, this automatic transmission takes efficiency, comfort and dynamics to a whole new level. It impresses with even swifter and smoother gearshifts. At the same time 9G-TRONIC helps reduce fuel consumption.

      The transmission system contains an array of mechanical and electro-hydraulic innovations and is the first 9-speed automatic transmission in the world for the premium segment with a hydrodynamic torque converter. With its extremely short shift and reaction times and almost imperceptible gear-changes, the 9-stage torque converter provides excellent ride comfort and agile handling.

      When driving in a dynamic style, the transmission system can skip gears to attain the optimum engine speed immediately. And it is possible to change gears manually at any time using the DIRECT SELECT steering wheel shift paddles.

      Thanks to efficiency optimisation and two additional gears, the transmission system has brought about a significant reduction in fuel consumption. The integral ECO start-stop system function, which switches off the engine when the vehicle comes to a temporary halt, makes a further important contribution to fuel saving.

      The visible twin tailpipe trim can be seen in the rear bumper.

      From bumpy roads to smooth motorways, AIRMATIC optimises ride comfort wherever you journey takes you. In combination with variable damper control, the air suspension system ensures ride comfort and dynamic handling at a very high level.

      The damping at each wheel is adapted to the current driving situation, and can be set for more comfortable or sporty characteristics as required. The passengers enjoy a basic suspension that is soft and, as the speed increases, a secure feeling from the high level of handling stability.

      It is also possible to raise the vehicle on bad roads or difficult ramps. The vehicle is automatically lowered at higher speeds for greater handling stability and reduced wind resistance - an additional contribution to reducing fuel consumption.

      Better contact between the engine and the powertrain is scarcely possible: because all the wheels are driven directly, the car has excellent driving dynamics. For better pulling away and acceleration, in particular on unfavourable road surfaces.

      The 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive system gives better handling and traction on wet, snowy or icy road surfaces. The system is constantly active and does not require any time to react and intervene immediately.

      Instead of using differentials the 4MATIC system employs the electronically controlled 4ETS traction system and also works together with the Electronic Stability Program ESP®, which is standard on all Mercedes passenger cars.

      This performance-oriented all-wheel drive system constantly ensures the optimum mix of dynamism, traction and efficiency. A multiple-disc clutch with AMG-specific electro-hydraulic control allows a variable torque split which can be instantly changed according to the driving conditions.

      Comfortable, sporty, particularly sporty or individual vehicle characteristic settings can be conveniently called up with the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT switch. With the drive programme, amongst other things, the characteristic of the engine, transmission, chassis and steering change along with the exhaust system sound.

      The drive programmes at a glance:

      • "Comfort": well-balanced and fuel-efficient
      • "Sport": more agility and dynamics
      • "Sport +": further enhanced sportiness
      • "Individual": variation of the individual parameters to suit your personal preferences

      Shifting is so yesterday. Acceleration is now. Experience a new driving sensation - made possible by a specially-developed, unique, power transmission. You will feel it every moment and with every fibre of your body. Belt up!

      With its nine speeds, Race Start function and double-declutching function, this transmission enables extremely dynamic acceleration and the briefest shift times on the one hand, and a fuel-saving mode of driving on the other. The Race Start function supports optimal acceleration from a standstill as with a start in motorsport.

      The DYNAMIC SELECT switch on the centre console lets you select comfortable, sporty, efficient – or fully customised – handling characteristics at your fingertips. Parameters such as the characteristics of the engine, transmission, suspension and steering system are adapted in line with the selected drive mode.

      The default setting is the well-balanced and fuel-efficient "Comfort" mode. The driving mode "Sport" with more progressive steering response delivers greater agility and dynamic performance thanks to a "sporty firm" suspension set-up, spontaneous throttle response and modified shift points. This allows further increasing the sporty character. Here the suspension and drive system are tuned even more dynamically.

      "ECO" mode is designed to keep fuel consumption to a minimum. This includes modifying accelerator response and shift points. The "Individual" mode allows the driver to vary individual parameters at will – from the steering and the powertrain to the suspension.

      Keep your vehicle fully under control: effortless mastery of tight bends, parking and manoeuvring without requiring any great effort on your part, plus the unmatched sense of safety in a Mercedes-Benz. Including unlimited driving pleasure.

      The Direct-Steer system adds to the comfort of speed-sensitive power steering with a variable steering ratio dependent on the steering wheel angle. On winding roads this leads e.g. to more agile vehicle response and increases straight-line stability.

      The steering wheel with the EASY-ENTRY system, which can be adjusted horizontally and vertically, provides additional comfort.

      The larger capacity of 25 litres of this AdBlue® reservoir increases the vehicle's range until the next top-up with urea. The boot capacity is reduced by about 20 litres as a result.

      A special flap is fitted in the fuel tank opening to prevent a diesel-powered vehicle being inadvertently filled up with petrol. It can only be opened by the diesel fuel pump nozzle, which has a larger diameter. The flap closes automatically after refuelling.

      A large proportion of all soot particles can be filtered from the exhaust gas thanks to the diesel particulate filter. This process does not require any additives.

      The fuel tank with volume increased to 78.5 litres makes a greater range possible before having to pull in to the next filling station.

      Optional extra for the Mercedes-AMG S 63 4MATIC+ with long wheelbase.
