ENERGIZING comfort control combines various in-vehicle comfort systems into precisely defined programmes for enhanced alertness and well-being during a journey. These energise the driver in monotonous driving situations or produce targeted well-being. Included are climate control, fragrancing/ionisation, lighting mood, music/videos as well as massage, heating and ventilation of the seats. The intelligent principle: one main function dominates, while other accompanying functions reinforce the desired effect of the programme (each programme lasts 10 minutes). The programme always includes, for example, an adapted lighting mood from the ambience lighting as well as special fragrancing/ionisation from the AIR BALANCE package.
Films on Blu-ray or DVD, TV, internet, video games, music – the Individual Entertainment System gives passengers in the rear their very personal entertainment program. In combination with high-quality wireless headsets (optional), two 25.9 cm (10.2-inch) displays on the front seat backrests ensure brilliant picture and sound quality. The system is conveniently operated using the COMAND remote control. It includes a Blu-ray player, is connected to COMAND Online and also has ports for connecting external devices. The passengers are independently able to access the entertainment source of their choice.
The optional Active Distance Assist system DISTRONIC represents a milestone on the way to automated driving. It is able to maintain automatically the correct distance from vehicles ahead in city traffic, on country roads and motorways, and even to follow them, at speeds up to 210 km/h. The driver’s workload is reduced, as there is no need to press the brake pedal or accelerator when driving normally, and there is noticeable steering assistance.
MULTIBEAM LED enables quick, precise adjustment of the driving lights to the current road and traffic conditions. The light can always be switched on precisely where it is required via 84 individually controllable LEDs. A total of four control units calculate the ideal light pattern 100 times per second using information from a camera behind the windscreen. The innovative technology extends and perfects the familiar functions of the Intelligent Light System.
In high-beam mode, Adaptive Highbeam Assist Plus enables continuous long-range illumination of the carriageway ahead without causing dazzle. ULTRA RANGE Highbeam increases the range of the light cone to the legally permitted maximum
The new LED lamps with crystal-look tail lamps stand out at the rear. They look like jewels and ensure a characteristic design day and night. A tail lamp light show that plays when the vehicle is unlocked and locked, as well as three horizontal pairs of fibre optics are also new.
