Driver-Assistance Package

The 2018 S-Class Sedan Driver-Assistance Package includes 11 driver-assist systems. Learn more about a select few below.

Active Steering Assist | Uses cameras and sensors to sense lane lines and keep the vehicle centered while using DISTRONIC® adaptive cruise control.

Evasive Steering Assist | Responds to the driver’s collision-avoiding evasive maneuvers by calculating steering force to help the vehicle avoid the collision, then straightens the vehicle back out to the center of the lane.

Route-Based Speed Adaptation | Uses the map database to automatically slow the vehicle down in anticipation of curves, traffic circles, toolbars, and highway interchanges—then resume up to the posted speed limit afterward. The system also slows the car when the driver signals for a highway exit.

Active Emergency Stop Assist | Senses when the driver’s hands have been removed from the steering wheel for a prolonged period and performs visual and audible alerts. If the driver fails to respond, other systems activate and slowly reduce vehicle speed until it comes to a full stop.

PRE-SAFE PLUS® | Uses radar to detect an impending impact and works to protect occupants in a rear-end collision.
