Mercedes S-Class

Generation-change at the of automotive engineering: Mercedes the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The new luxury will be appearing in the showrooms of outlets and authorised dealerships as of 2005.

As in the preceding series, the new S-Class will introduce innovations which make the Mercedes model an example for to follow. Pioneering safety and exemplary comfort continue to be the attributes of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The new also sets standards in dynamics with its agile while offering even driving pleasure with more powerful engines. The new is replacing a model series is the world No.

1 in the luxury class, and of around 485,000 have produced since 1998.

For than five decades, the S in the model designation of Mercedes has signified a special aura, technology and the highest quality. The new S-Class not only continues tradition, but lends a new meaning to it. It is a pacemaker with its pioneering for more safety, comfort and and like its predecessors it will the automotive development of the future. The exudes this poise and even at first glance.

Its emphasises the confident, powerful and character of the new S-Class, which every journey an experience.

even more technological was a challenge for the engineers in Stuttgart and for the bar was set very high: the previous . which had been repeatedly the Best Car in the World since its in 1998, was a hard act to follow. The Mercedes-Benz has made with the new is based on this already level. A dozen technical are entering series production for the time on board the new Mercedes-Benz — from Brake PLUS with radar to seats with an extended function, from the night assist system with the infra-red technology to the new COMAND and from preventive PRE-SAFE® protection with additional to Parking Assist.

2006 S-Class

Safety: Brake with radar and latest-generation

In the field of vehicle safety, is redoubling its commitment to accident with the preventive system Assist PLUS. This registers vehicles ahead by and gives a warning if the gap is too small or the speed is too high. If a collision Brake Assist PLUS the ideal braking assistance in of a second and makes this immediately — even if the applies too little pressure to the pedal.

This significantly the incidence of rear-end collisions. The brake light, which following traffic by flashing emergency braking, also a major contribution.

Mercedes-Benz Brake Assist PLUS the equally unique occupant system PRE-SAFE®, which even more safety on board the new S-Class. PRE-SAFE® potential accident situations as arise: if braking deceleration a certain level or a skid is the system tensions the front belts as a precaution and inflates air in the multicontour seats to envelop and the driver, front passenger and seat occupants. For the first Mercedes-Benz has also integrated the windows into this protection system; they are closed when an accident

This combination of the new Brake PLUS system and PRE-SAFE® is a enhancement to occupant protection. is the world’s first and only brand with a comprehensive system of this kind, already goes into before an impending accident.

systems: DISTRONIC PLUS and the new view assist

Brake PLUS is available in combination the likewise improved proximity system DISTRONIC PLUS. radar-supported system now operates at all between zero and 200 km/h, and even greater driver In stop-and-go traffic DISTRONIC keeps the new S-Class at the right from the vehicle ahead, brakes the saloon to a standstill if and accelerates it back to the required when the traffic starts again.

In this way the support reduces the driver’s workload and considerable benefits in driver-fitness

The equipment package with Assist PLUS and DISTRONIC also includes a new Parking system which likewise radar sensors. These a longer range than signals, therefore the driver earlier warning of an impending when reversing into a space.

With the innovative night assist system which is in the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Mercedes-Benz has a further, major contribution to the risk of accidents during the of darkness. This system is on infra-red light, which is to the human eye and will therefore not oncoming traffic. Two infra-red illuminate the road, extending the range of vision to more 150 metres when on low beam. view assist therefore pedestrians, cyclists, parked and other obstacles visible much sooner.

Dimensions: larger, more and even more luxurious

The new model by Mercedes-Benz is larger its predecessor in every respect. is a choice of two body lengths 5076 or 5206 millimetres which is 33 and 43 millimetres, respectively, than the previous S-Class. The has increased by 70/80 millimetres to and 3165 millimetres, respectively.

The is also 16 millimetres wider and 29 higher than before.

new dimensions create the conditions for an concept which provides single passenger with comfort. Interior parameters as shoulder-room and elbow-room have by up to 39 millimetres, while headroom has improved by up to five millimetres. seat passengers in the long-wheelbase benefit from a greater between the seats (+ 10 mm) and more (+ 11 mm) compared to the preceding series.

The of the boot has increased by 60 litres to 560 (VDA measuring method).

The dashboard its sophisticated, sweeping lines is yet masterpiece by Mercedes designers, for form and function are ideals share equal status. the cockpit not only conveys a of safety, but is also extraordinarily laid-out and practical — the very first moment, man and enter into a harmonious in the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

Operating concept: colour direct-selection switches and COMAND

That is also assured by the developed and thoroughly tested concept. This is based on from extensive ergonomic and psychology studies, and also into account the results of tests with Mercedes around the world.

The major of the intelligent operating concept in the new is rapid access to functions are used particularly frequently. The is therefore specifically designed for depending on his preferred habits, the is able to control functions as the radio, TV-receiver, CD/DVD telephone and navigation system using conventional switches, via on the multifunction steering wheel or the help of the improved COMAND The direct-selection switches in the centre are so ergonomically positioned that the is able to operate them and without looking down.

It is possible to operate the standard climate control system in two ways: via COMAND or using an styled array of switches the air vents.

The steering wheel and cluster are the primary areas in the new concept. These integrate all the information and functions required by the The centrepiece is a colour screen the latest display technology for a crystal-clear image.

The lower of the cockpit display has a plain-text with which up to seven menus for individual settings, modes and operating functions can be depending on the level of equipment. For selection of these functions has developed the controls on the standard steering wheel further, circular, illuminated five-way which the driver operates by thumb pressure.

Another new which improves operating and allows a modern cockpit is DIRECT SELECT — control of the standard 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission by nudging an styled lever on the right of the column. Thanks to this Mercedes engineers were to dispense with the usual lever on the centre console and the tunnel covering.

The innovative Cockpit Management and System — COMAND for — has likewise been and now offers even more In addition to the familiar telematics and units, various vehicle which previously required switches have now been into the system. The central unit is the new COMAND controller on the tunnel. It is used to select the and sub-menus with which the functions are activated.

If a car phone is ex factory, the padded handrest the controller can be flipped up to reveal the keypad.

The large COMAND display is positioned at the same as the instrument cluster, and therefore more favourably within the of vision of the driver and front A new operating concept, up-to-date and clear, photo-quality graphics make the menu selection a gratifying visual experience.

Comfort: new seats with a function and air suspension as standard

customers are able to adapt the developed seats in the new Mercedes-Benz to suit their personal requirements. Electrically adjustable, front seats with supports are standard equipment. is also an optional choice of seats with heating and multicontour seats (front and and dynamic multicontour seats whose squab and backrest adapt to the relevant driving to provide the best possible support at all times.

The dynamic seat is also equipped separate air chambers in the backrest are successively inflated and deflated at the of a button, massaging the back for the wellbeing of its occupant. The intensity and of the massage function can be adjusted in stages by means of the COMAND

The suspension with its standard, AIRMATIC air suspension system makes a major contribution to the ride comfort in the new Mercedes-Benz At the touch of a button the driver is to choose between a comfort-oriented or sporty configuration. Beyond 120 and in Sport mode, the suspension is lowered by up to 20 millimetres to improve the dynamics, aerodynamics and fuel even further.

The Active Body Control system (optional, standard in the S 600) is a further milestone in engineering which has been even further for the new S-Class.

The developed braking system BRAKE has additional functions for example assist the driver moving off on gradients and shorten distances in the wet. The parking is electrically assisted for the first — the brake is applied by pressing a button, and is released when the car moves off.
