The new Mercedes-Benz S-class
Air springs for a new dimension in ride comfort
With the new Mercedes-Benz S-class, the motor manufacturer with the longest tradition in the world is confirming its role as a pioneer in the production of top-of-the-range luxury class saloons. In all technical fields, the Mercedes top model sets standards that guarantee extra safety, comfort, environmental compatibility and driving pleasure. With AIRmatic, the full pneumatic suspension system, fitted as standard, the ride comfort of the S-class reaches a previously unattained level of comfort. Daimler-Benz combines this suspension technology as standard with the Adaptive Damping System (ADS) which automatically adapts the action of the shock absorbers to road surface conditions. In terms of active safety, the new top model of the Mercedes range is also optimally equipped, with both Electronic Stability Program (ESP) and Brake Assist System (BAS). With the new S-class model, more than 30 technical innovations will enter production.
