High-Tech Features

Optional high-end gadgets include Night View Assist, which can "see" almost 500 feet ahead of the car and display the view in the instrument panel. Equally interesting is the available Distronic Plus adaptive cruise control system. If you're one of the legions of drivers who find themselves stuck in stop-and-go rush-hour traffic on a daily basis, Distronic Plus might be just what you need to ease the morning and evening commute. This system will brake and accelerate the S-Class as necessary to keep it moving through heavy traffic, and it can even bring the car to a complete stop if necessary. We know of no other manufacturer with a feature this comprehensive.
