Singularity is perhaps the highest expression of individuality.That is why the new S-Class can be fitted out with thought-through equipment packages that perfectly reflect the personal preferences of its owner. For even greater comfort, even greater safety, even greater prestige, even greater dynamism. What more could you ask for?
Personalise your vehicle's interior in a very special way: with a selection of differing, high-class scents to choose from, this package makes your vehicle occupants feel even better, particularly on long journeys.
The vehicle occupants can switch the fragrance on and off, as well as adjust its intensity. Use of this feature does not change the smell of the interior permanently, not do the fragrance molecules settle on the textile surfaces in the car or the occupants' clothing. The fragrance is subtle, is dispersed gently and subsides again quickly.
There is a container in the glove compartment for the glass flacon with the different fragrances (NIGHTLIFE MOOD, DOWNTOWN MOOD, SPORTS MOOD, FREESIDE MOOD), which are intended to remind one of a perfume. The air in the interior is cleaned through ionising with oxygen and can thus contirbute in large part to the feeling of well-being. The package includes air filters that clean the air in the vehicle interior constantly.
A rear seat area that offers the very highest levels of comfort, ergonomics and safety – this package significantly increases seating comfort in the rear of the car. For the front passenger seat can be moved into the so-called chauffeur setting. This means it can be slid even further forward than normal, providing additional footroom in the back for the rear-seat passenger sitting there.
Various adjustment options and settings allow the seat position to be adjusted to individual requirements, with the result that travelling becomes a good deal more relaxed for the rear passenger. The outer head restraints extend themselves automatically if someone gets into the back of the car, which increases occupant safety. The Memory function allows up to three individual seat positions to be saved and called up in a matter of seconds. The memory programming covers all seat setting options, such as fore-and-aft position, angle and height of the seat and the head restraint, and the angle and depth of the cushion and the tilt of the seat backrest. Operation is intuitive using ergonomic switches in the door control panels.
The Chauffeur package comprises the following components:
Protect your property from unauthorised access. As soon as it is activated via remote control when the vehicle is locked, the alarm system will sound if the vehicle is broken into or towed away.
If, for example, a car door, the boot lid or bonnet is opened or the ignition lock shorted or removed, an ear-splitting alarm will immediately be sounded, which will unnerve the perpetrator and scare him off. The tow-away protection function responds to a change in the position of the vehicle and can be deactivated – for example, if the car is being towed or loaded onto another vehicle
The finest nappa leather and specially selected wood finishes – these carefully assembled appointments have been manufactured to a very high level of quality. The extensive components of this package have been stylishly matched and will satisfy the most discerning of customers.
Overview of equipment:
A highlight of the comprehensive safety concept on board the S-Class: This package takes the strain off the driver, particularly on long journeys or in traffic jams, alerts him to dangerous situations and offers a range of supportive measures to reduce the consequences of rear-end collisions.
This combination of various complementary safety and comfort features makes an active contribution to safety in everyday driving. The proximity control, lane change control, blind spot warning and stopping distance optimisation functions can play a crucial role in ensuring a safe journey.
Keep your hands free for the important things in life. To unlock the doors or start the engine, a driver only needs to have the KEYLESS-GO key with integral chip on his person. To start the engine, he merely needs to press the start/stop button.
In addition, he can open and close the boot lid by pressing the key's remote control buttons. HANDS-FREE ACCESS is a further convenience function. With a kicking motion beneath the rear bumper, the boot lid can be automatically opened and closed.
Get in, get set, go – the Memory function is particularly practical when there is a frequent change of drivers, as it stores the individual driver seat settings for up to three people. Both the driver and front passenger can call up their usual positions for seat and mirrors immediately upon getting into the vehicle.
The switches are arranged logically in the doors and are intuitive to operate. As soon as the driver or front passenger selects his or her setting by pressing the button, the height of the seat, angle of the seat cushions and backrest, steering wheel and exterior mirrors are all automatically moved into their saved positions.
So as to be able to keep things constantly in view when parking, the exterior mirror on the passenger side also has a parking function. This moves the exterior mirror on the passenger side automatically into a position giving the driver a better kerbside view as soon as reverse gear is engaged.
The Memory package contains further features and equipment which enhance comfort and safety:
A very high-class way of parking safely and conveniently: this system doesn't just help the driver to find a suitable parking space. It also helps him, with active steering and braking, to park in a space and exit it. A very high-class way of parking safely and conveniently: this system doesn't just help the driver to find a suitable parking space. It also helps him, with active steering and braking, to park in a space and exit it.
With its active steering and braking interventions, the system significantly boosts driving comfort and makes it possible to park in narrow parking spaces too. PARKTRONIC can recognise obstacles in front of and behind the vehicle. When this happens, the driver is given visual and audible warning signals. In this way,knocks and bumps when manoeuvring are avoided. The driving can take over the steering at any point; Parking Assist then switches itself off.
The anticipatory occupant protection is a pioneering system and part of the integral safety concept from Mercedes-Benz. This concept has been taken a clear step further forward in the S-Class. This package enhances the effectiveness of the protection for passengers in the rear in the event of frontal impact.
In a dangerous situation the PRE-SAFE® system causes the seat belt buckle extender to move down from its neutral position. The tension created in the seat belts holds the passengers in place in a critical driving situation and readies them for possible impact. If a crash does occur, the seat belt buckle extender returns to its higher position to aid rescue of the occupants and the tension in the seat belts is relaxed.
The outer-rear seats are also fitted with a beltbag. This specially-designed belt is woven from a single piece of material and fitted with a tear seam. It is arranged in such a way that the bag area unfurls itself when triggered and can be filled. The beltbag can reduced the pressure on the thorax.
Reduced risk of serious injuries in an accident: These air cushions help to protect the upper body and pelvic area in a side impact. They also help to stabilise the whole body.
Remaining seated for a long time can often trigger back pain. This package systematically counters this risk by offering the best possible seating comfort and the ability to adjust to individual seating requirements.
The seats have separately controlled air chambers, which adjust to your individual physiognomic requirements, for example, with lumbar support that can be adjusted in several places and through an additional warming function in the area of the spine.
Improved lateral support for the driver and front passenger when cornering is achieved with the active driving dynamics function, which inflates the seat side bolsters away from the bend in the event of lateral acceleration, thereby stabilising the body safely.
massage function in the backrest, which has 6 movements, helps to tone up or relax the muscles. It prevents the back muscles from tiring, particularly on long journeys. The massage function provides active support for "dynamic sitting", as recommended by orthopaedic specialists and by the "Aktion Gesunder Rücken", an association promoting back health.
An ideal equipment combination, which significantly increases seating comfort and safety in the rear. The integral PRE-SAFE® positioning function can move the seats into a safer position for crash conditions. To increase comfort, the seat contours of both outer multicontour seats in the rear can be individually adjusted. And on top of this, the seats are specified, amongst other features, with a massage function.
Electrically-operated roller sun blinds in the rear doors protect passengers in the rear from unwanted attention and direct sun rays without majorly impacting on vision. Their sun shade effect also reduces the temperature in the vehicle interior.
The roller blind for the rear window is unobtrusively mounted on the parcel shelf and can be conveniently operated at the push of a button from the driver's or front passenger's seat. Thanks to perforations in the blind material, there is practically no sight restriction from inside the vehicle.
Compared to conventional seat heating, the new seat heating Plus warms up all the seats in considerably shorter time, even before the interior heating gets going (in conjunction with a rigid rear bench seat and conventional seat heating in the rear). The package also includes headed armrests in the doors, the centre console and the centre armrest in the rear (not if rigid bench seat installed in the rear) as well as a heated steering wheel.
Refined-looking woodgrain in the designo wood range adorns the door centre panels, the backs of the front backrests and the covers on the air outlets in the rear. This attractive package individualises the interior with its stylish wood trim elements which are exclusive to this enhanced wood package and cannot be ordered separately.
