I AM BACK with the S Class WORLD Premiere on our YouTube Channel featuring the all-new 2021 Mercedes Benz S Class S500, this time in Hightech Silver Metallic! 😍
In this video, we will be having a walkaround showing you the Exterior and Interior Features of the all-new Mercedes Benz S Class Progressive line!
The most important new features:
The second generation of MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) débuts in the new S-Class. Another milestone as
the interface between the driver, passengers and vehicle: there are up to five screens on board, some with OLED
technology. At the touch of a button, the new 3D driver display for the first time allows spatial perception of the scene
with a real 3D effect thanks to eye-tracking. A similarly impressive feature is the very large head-up display with
augmented reality content. When navigating, for example, animated turn-off arrows (“fishbones”) are virtually and
precisely projected onto the road lane.
Using cameras in the overhead control panel and learning algorithms, MBUX Interior Assist recognises and anticipates
the wishes and intentions of the occupants. It does this by interpreting head direction, hand movements and body
language, and responds with corresponding vehicle functions. For example, if the driver looks over his/her shoulder
towards the rear window, Interior Assist automatically opens the sunblind.
The active ambient lighting with around 250 LEDs is now integrated into the driving assistance systems, and is able to
reinforce their warnings visually. In addition, feedback is possible when operating the climate control system or the ‘Hey
Mercedes’ voice assistant, for instance.
The latest generation of the Driving Assistance Package has new and numerous improved functions. One example is
predictive compliance with speed limits. The new assistance display in the driver display clearly shows the operating
principle of the driving assistance systems as a full-screen view.
During severe frontal collisions, the rear airbag (optional extra for the S-Class with long wheelbase) can considerably
reduce the loads acting on the head and neck area of the seat-belt-wearing occupants in the outer rear seats. The
frontal airbag for the rear seat deploys particularly gently thanks to its innovative construction using a tubular structure.
Thanks to rear-axle steering (optional), the S-Class is as manoeuvrable as a compact car in the city. The steering angle
at the rear axle is up to ten degrees. Even for the S-Class with a long wheelbase and all-wheel drive, the turning circle is
reduced by 1.9 metres to less than 10.9 metres.
More than 50 electronic components in the new S-Class can be updated with new software over-the-air (OTA). These
include the entire MBUX infotainment system, the driver display, the driving assistance systems and the MULTIBEAM
LED and DIGITAL LIGHT lighting systems. This technology saves the customer time, as he/she does not need to visit a
workshop for this purpose. Furthermore, the vehicle remains up to date throughout its lifecycle and is equipped for new
features. The explicit consent of the user is always a precondition for OTA updates.
When a side impact with another vehicle threatens, the vehicle body can be raised by the E-ACTIVE BODY CONTROL
suspension (optional) within a few tenths of a second. This is a new function of PRE-SAFE®
Impulse Side: It can reduce the loads acting on the occupants because it directs the impact forces towards particularly resistant structures in the
lower area of the vehicle.
It is expected that from the second half of 2021 the S-Class will be able to drive in conditionally automated mode with
the new DRIVE PILOT (optional extra), in situations where traffic density is high or in tailbacks, on suitable motorway sections in Germany.
