The S-Class 2009
For more safety on the road you can count on the PRE-SAFE® occupant protection. Its sensor-controlled "instinct" can recognise danger in advance and initiate the necessary safety measures. In addition the PRE-SAFE® brake automatically activates a full brake application when impact in unavoidable, which helps minimise damage from an accident.
The passengers in the rear of the vehicle stay entertained with the optional rear-seat entertainment package. Both head restraints on the front seats are fitted with 8-inch displays for viewing DVDs. A remote control makes for convenient operation. The audio output can be heard through wireless headphones or the Harman Kardon® Logic 7® surround sound system.
One component of the entertainment package in front is the innovative SPLITVIEW display technology which, depending on the angle, can simultaneously show two different types of content on the COMAND display of the S-Class. So for example, the driver can use the navigation mode while the front passenger watches a film.
The S 400 HYBRID combines a powerful 6-cylinder petrol engine with an electric motor delivering exceptional torque strength. Optimised aerodynamic qualities, regenerative braking, the ECO start/stop function and tyres with low rolling resistance make the S 400 HYBRID the most efficient vehicle in the luxury class.
The S-Class has always stood for luxury and elegance. It also now features modern LED technology for a clear view - especially at night. Further components of the LED light package are the innovative Intelligent Light System light technology and Adaptive Highbeam Assist which provides optimum visibility in every driving situation.
