2014 Mercedes-Benz S Class with Active Parking Assist
Safety upgrades for 2014 include rear seat belt airbags and an updated version of the Pre-Safe collision detection system. It detects pedestrians and vehicles and can provide autonomous braking at speeds up to around 30 mph. The 2014 S-Class also features the new generation of the Active Parking Assist system, which provides semiautomatic parallel parking.
Rear-wheel-drive S550 sedans will launch first in September, followed by S550 4Matic all-wheel-drive models in November, followed by S63 AMG versions. Only long-wheelbase versions will be offered in the U.S. No word yet on pricing; base model-year 2013 S550s start at $95,905, including a $905 destination fee.
Name a sense, and the S‑Class offers a treat for it. And while you would expect
a luxury sedan to delight your eyes, ears and hands, it’s your sense of well‑being
that’s never been so well‑attended. Generous in standard features, a wealth of
options let you further tailor your S‑Class to suit your desires and sense of style.
You can have not just the front seats heated, but the steering wheel, armrests and
doors as well. New “hot stone” massage and aromatherapy treatments can make
driving to the spa more rejuvenating than the spa itself. As you arrive, an electronic
valet can help you find a parking spot, then virtually park the car for you — hands‑
free and feet‑free. And if you return with an armful of packages, you can open and
close the trunk with a gentle kicking motion under the rear bumper. All of this may
sound rather indulgent. But doesn’t it make sense to make all your senses happy?
Handcrafted elegance, hands-free ease.
Six leather colors in four supple treatments can
be complemented by as many as four choices in
wood trim. Rich wood and soft Nappa leather
also encircle the elegant two-spoke steering
wheel. The optional Exclusive Trim graces the
lower doors, front seatbacks and rear air vents
with additional wood accents. The S 63 AMG
can also be outfitted in genuine carbon fiber.
Modern conveniences also abound. Standard
pushbutton starting and a power trunklid can be
enhanced with KEYLESS-GO® and the touchless
trunk operation of new HANDS-FREE ACCESS.
Available PARKTRONIC with Active Parking
Assist can size up parallel and perpendicular
spaces as you drive by, then automatically park
the car — expertly steering, braking, and in many
situations, even pulling out of the spot later.
