Innovative OLED tail lamps are a new feature of the S-Class Cabriolet. The total of 66 ultra-flat OLEDs act like floating elements inside the tail lamp; in addition, they emit a highly homogeneous light pattern in all directions and form a unique day and night design. Locking and unlocking the vehicle is additionally emphasised by an animated dynamic light sequence with subsequent dimming-up of the tail lights.
Semi-automated driving on motorways, rural roads and even in town, autonomous braking when needed in critical situations and active assistance during evasive manoeuvres – these are just some of the functions of the Driving Assistance Package, which sees Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive take the next step towards autonomous driving.

Key driver information at a glance, without the driver having to take their eyes off the road – this is a feature made possible by the head-up display. It projects a virtual image measuring approximately 21 x 7 cm into the driver's field of vision, which appears to float around 2 metres in front of him/her, above the engine bonnet. The information is displayed in high-resolution and in colour.
