Mercedes-Benz S-Class: Next-gen comes with lots of new tech

Mercedes-Benz S-Class

The next-generation Mercedes-Benz S-Class will feature a lot of new technology. More here.

With up to five cutting-edge new safety systems, including a ‘Braking Bag’ that bursts under the front axle to add an extra dimension of last-second emergency stopping power, the S-class is likely to rate as the world’s safest car when it launches late in 2012.

A computer-controlled suspension system, with redesigned multi-link front and rear axles, more efficient engines and a nine-speed automatic gearbox promise to make the latest S-class a better drive, a more relaxed ride and a more sparing consumer of the planet’s resources.
