Innovative OLED tail lamps are a new feature of the S-Class Coupé. The total of 66 ultra-flat OLEDs act like floating elements inside the tail lamp; in addition, they emit a highly homogeneous light pattern in all directions and form a unique day and night design. Locking and unlocking the vehicle is additionally emphasised by an animated dynamic light sequence with subsequent dimming-up of the tail lights.
Semi-automated driving on motorways, rural roads and even in town, autonomous braking when needed in critical situations and active assistance during evasive manoeuvres – these are just some of the functions of the Driving Assistance Package, which sees Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive take the next step towards autonomous driving. Highlights of the latest-generation Driving Assistance Package include Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC with route-based speed adaptation, for example on bends, and extended automatic restart in stop-and-go traffic, Active Speed Limit Assist with anticipatory speed reduction to comply with detected road signs and Active Brake Assist with cross-traffic function and congestion emergency braking function. The driver is comprehensively supported in virtually every traffic situation, making for a significantly more relaxed drive.
The wireless charging system functions with all mobile devices which support or can be upgraded to support the Qi standard. The charging surface is integrated into the quick stowage tray in the front on the centre console and accepts mobile phones with a screen diagonal of up to 15.2 cm (6 inches). A connection is quickly established between the multimedia system and mobile phones via Near Field Communication (NFC) by touching the "NFC" logo. Telephone calls are then conducted automatically via the Bluetooth® hands-free system.
Key driver information at a glance, without the driver having to take their eyes off the road – this is a feature made possible by the head-up display. It projects a virtual image measuring approximately 21 x 7 cm into the driver's field of vision, which appears to float around 2 metres in front of him/her, above the engine bonnet. The information is displayed in high-resolution and in colour.
