The Active Lane Change Assist system helps the driver change lanes automatically just by nudging the indicator stalk. Besides, with the Active Speed Limit Assist system, the vehicle will be able to drive through stop-and-go traffic by making stops of up to 30 seconds.
Another outstanding feature of the updated S-class is that the Evasive Steering Assist function can help the driver detect and evade the pedestrians who are in the danger zone ahead.
Particularly, Car-to-X Communication function of the car will warn the driver via voice output when the danger approaches.
Concerning the dashboard’s design, the new vehicle also gets a three-spoke steering wheel the as previously model, but the digital instrument panel seems to be larger.
