NEW ORLEANS, Nov. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ --Mercedes-Benz of New Orleans is excited to have the all new 2013 Mercedes-Benz S-Class in stock. The new 2013 Mercedes-Benz S-Class has lots of new and never before seen safety features. To make shopping for a new S-Class Mercedes-Benz in New Orleans a little easier let's catch you up on some of the terminology and information of the top new assistance programs offered by Mercedes-Benz.
The new and improved Active Lane Keeping Assist intervenes to correct lane changes using a radar system. If the system detects a possible collision is will vibrate the steering wheel and use lane-correcting single-sided braking.
Active Blind Spot Assist is another radar-based system that warns the driver if it detects another car in the blind spot when changing lanes.
The Brake Assist System (BAS) PLUS with Cross-Traffic Assist detects imminent crashes with cross traffic at junctions and prompts the driver to start emergency braking and will even automatically apply brake pressure for effective emergency braking. The BAS PLUS and PRE-SAFE Brake prevents accidents with pedestrians and vehicles in front of you.
The Night View Assist Plus alerts drivers to pedestrians and animals that may be in potentially hazardous positions in front of your vehicle. Infrared headlamps light up the road in front of you with invisible infrared light. A Far-infrared camera detects the relevant objects such as pedestrians, deer or other animals as a thermal image , enabling it to control the warning function.
PRE-SAFE Impulse pulls the front occupants away from the direction of the impact and deeper into their seats by their seat belts which will significantly reduce injuries in a frontal collision.
