Mercedes Benz S-Class Equipment

Standard equipment includes Magic Vision Control, AirMATIC full air suspension system with continuously adaptive damping control and reversing camera, COMAND Online NTG 5, full LED Intelligent Light System, DAB digital radio and Keyless Start.

Options include Magic Body Control suspension system, an option on the S 500 (£4,340). Linked to the new Road Surface Scan system, Magic Body Control uses a stereo camera located on the top edge of the windscreen to scan the road up to 15-metres ahead, allowing it to model a precise image of the road surface – it counteracts the pitching, rolling and lifting motions felt on uneven roads, creating a more comfortable ride.

You can add a 1,540 watt Burmester 3D surround sound system with 24 specially designed speakers, 24 amplifier channels and three speakers integrated into the headlining (£6,430) to the range of perfumes emitted by the Air-Balance Package (£360) – a further function of which is the ionisation of the air entering the vehicle, passing through a filter system to improve the quality of the air and remove pollutants.

You can even specify three different seat packages for rear-seat occupants that can even simulate a hot stone massage.
