Maybach Series: Safety Part 3
The third and final part in our Maybach Safety Series features the LED Daytime Running Lamps & LED taillamps, the aluminum and high strength steel body structure, the Smartkey, and more.
LED Daytime Running Lamps
Bright white LED Daytime Running Lamps help increase the visibility of your vehicle to oncoming traffic by illuminating front lights whenever the car is switched on. With long life and low energy consumption, the light-emitting diode (LED) lamps also add a distinctive high-tech styling touch.
Redesigned taillamps employ LED technology for every function, and with distinctive form. Brighter than traditional incandescent bulbs, LED technology also delivers quicker illumination of the brake lamps. By offering drivers behind you more time to react, this could make a critical difference in a panic stop.
Aluminum and high-strength steel body structure
Greater use of aluminum helps the body shell of the S-Class elevate its overall rigidity, occupant protection and acousting qualities while reducing weight. Along with high-strength and ultra-high-strength steel, advanced lightweight materials such as extruded and cast aluminum, diecast magnesium, metal-polymer hybrids and high-density foam in the roof pillars enhance body strength while cutting excess mass.
The SmartKey remote control integrates remote door locks and trunk opener, a removable valet key, and a remote panic alarm. You may selectively unlock only the driver’s door and fuel filler, or all doors plus the trunk and fuel filler. The vehicle can be started via a pushbutton in the dash, thanks to a standard KEYLESS-START feature.
Antitheft alarm system with remote panic feature
The standard antitheft alarm system is armed automatically when you lock your Mercedes from the outside. It sounds the horn and flashes the exterior lights if a door, the trunk or the hood is opened without first unlocking the vehicle. You can also sound the alarm by pressing the red “panic” button on your SmartKey remote when you’re within range of your vehicle.
MAGIC VISION CONTROL
MAGIC VISION CONTROL® features wiper blades with laser-cut holes that emit a highly precise spray of washer fluid directly in front of the moving wipers. The system eliminates the brief, vision-obscuring spray across the full windshield, and minimizes overspray and runoff. And since the washer fluid reservoir, lines and even the wiper blades are heated, it’s also extremely effective in cold weather.
Rain-sensing windshield wipers
Rain-sensing windshield wipers automatically adjust the intermittent wiper frequency based on the amount of rainfall.
