The fabric soft top is a fully automatic acousic soft top as standard. Its multi-layered structure with sophisticated insulation reduces wind and driving noise, which makes it easy for the occupants to hear each other talk, even when driving at high speed. The soft-top structure has an equally positive effect when it comes to climate comfort and makes the Cabriolet suitable for use all year round.
This neck-level heating makes open-top driving a pleasure even at low temperatures. Through air outlets in the head restraints, pleasantly warm air is 'wrapped' around the necks of the driver and front passenger like an invisible scarf. The desired intensity can be set in three stages.The airflow is controlled according to the AIRSCARF level selected by the customer and, with the roof open, also according to the driving speed.
When the soft top is down, AIRCAP reduces turbulence in the interior, also for passengers in the rear. When the AIRCAP switch is pressed, a wind louvre on the windscreen pops up and the draught-stop positioned behind the rear head restraints is extended upwards. This enlarges the curvature of the airflow over the passenger compartment. Air swirls and noise level can thus be reduced appreciably. The draught-stop is retracted or extended together with the wind louvre via a button on the centre console.
Too small of a gap between vehicles is one of the main causes of severe accidents. The radar based collision warning system COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS can enhance safety and driving comfort by warning the driver of following too closely and can support the driver's braking when it detects danger. If the driver fails to react, autonomous partial braking funtion is initiated.
Two optionally available high-resolution 12.3-inch displays (31.2 cm,1920 x 720 pixel resolution) merge beneath a shared glass cover to create a widescreen that appears to be floating in thin air but nevertheless blends in smoothly between the upper and lower sections of the cockpit. The driver can choose from three different styles for the virtual instruments in the instrument cluster: "Classic", "Sport" and "Progressive".
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 LEDs which are each individually controllable. A total of four control units calculate the ideal light pattern 100 times per second using information provided by a camera positioned 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.
The vehicle can be conveniently unlocked, started and locked with this system, simply by carrying the electronic key. The HANDS-FREE ACCESS function allows hands-off fully automatic opening and closing of the luggage compartment lid.
Touch Control buttons in the steering wheel enable the driver to control the instrument cluster and multimedia system using finger swipes without having to take their hands off the steering wheel. Additional controls come in the form of a touchpad with controller in the centre console.
The head-up display keeps you informed. It projects a high-resolution colour image that appears directly in the driver’s line of vision. It can show information relating to navigation, speed and cruise control settings. The display feels as if it is floating around two metres in front of the driver.
With the DRIVE PILOT you glide to your destination even more elegantly, with support when accelerating, braking and steering – even in bends. A milestone on the way to autonomous, accident-free driving.
ATTENTION ASSIST. This attention detection system can be useful on long trips in particular. Between 60 and 200 km/h sensors analyse driving behaviour and can detect deviations from a previously determined, individual driver profile, enabling timely alerts in the event of serious lapses in concentration or increasing drowsiness. A dedicated menu in the instrument cluster provides the driver with additional information.
All lighting functions of the all LED headlamps in the Intelligent Light System feature energy-efficient LED technology and offer improved visibility in many driving situations. They adapt the light distribution to the given driving situation, thereby making an important contribution to safe driving.
The 360-degree camera has a close-range camera system with several cameras to assist parking and slow manoeuvring. In addition to the reversing camera function it is able to monitor the areas to the sides and directly in front of the vehicle, helping to prevent collisions during slow manoeuvring.
The wireless charging system functions with all mobile devices which support or can be upgraded to support the Qi standard. The charging surface is integrated into the quick stowage tray in the front on the centre console and accepts mobile phones with a screen diagonal of up to 15.2 cm (6 inches). A connection is quickly established between the multimedia system and mobile phone via Near Field Communication (NFC) by touching the "NFC" logo. Telephone calls are then conducted automatically via the Bluetooth® hands-free system.
