MERCEDES-BENZ S-CLASS 2021: INTERIOR

From inside the Mercedes-Benz S-Class 2021 more space is expected for the occupants, as well as a state-of-the-art technological network. This is precisely the one that was introduced in early July, with the latest generation of its MBUX infotainment system.

It will present several novelties, such as the possibility that the occupants of the rear seats can also give voice commands. Another of the great claims in your navigation with augmented reality, which allows showing the indications on the windshield and looking as if they were outside. In this way it is much more intuitive and avoids distractions.

Finally, the system will incorporate biometric security functions, such as fingerprint, face and voice recognition, which will also automatically load the preferences of the driver and passengers.

This new system will be located in the center console, aligned with the height of the steering wheel and slightly tilted towards the driver’s position.

MERCEDES-BENZ S-CLASS 2021: EQUIPMENT

Mercedes Benz It has shared a first demonstration of how its Head-Up Display system works, which will differ from the rest of the options available in the market because it will offer an augmented reality experience.

Beyond projecting the vehicle’s speed onto the windshield, signs and indications will also appear that will be projected in strategic places to facilitate driving.

For example: if we go down a road and the browser tells us to take an exit to the left, the Head-Up Display It will project arrows exactly at the point where the exit is located. In this way, the driver will easily recognize which direction to follow without having to interpret the map.

The new S-Class will also incorporate the first airbag for rear-seat occupants, thus renewing with the tradition of introducing absolute safety innovations in its S-class, a custom established many years ago with the introduction of ESP.

The system will not only protect the occupants of the rear seats but it will also protect the occupants of the front seats, preventing them from suffering what some call the ‘elephant effect’. In the event of a frontal impact, the occupants of the rear seats are ‘catapulted forward and may end up hitting the front seat and produce a apla crushing effect’ on the front seat occupant due to the impact.

The airbag would be located in the back of the front seats and would also be adapted to protect children, so its concept is completely different and would work in combination with an inflatable seat belt. Details will be announced in the video conference on Wednesday.

It will be one of the innovations that it will present in terms of security. Not the only one. The ‘PreSAFE Side Impulse’ system will use radar sensors to detect an imminent side impact. In this case, the front seat occupant will be displaced towards the center and in addition the system will act on the active suspension E-Active Body Control, which will raise the suspension to divert the force of the impact towards the most robust areas of the monocoque.
