The AIRMATIC suspension system has been improved in several significant ways. The Active Damping System that the system works with is now recalibrated, and Active Body Control has been improved such that body motion under hard driving is now reduced by 60 percent


A new system called Brake Assist PLUS calculates the amount of brake assist needed to prevent an impending collision and provides it the moment the brake pedal is pressed, thus reducing the chance that the driver will overcompensate and other vehicles will rear-end the S-Class. Another feature offered on the new S is PRE-SAFE, which recognizes a potential accident and readies safety systems. Additionally, the radar-supported DISTRONIC PLUS cruise-control system now operates in radar-supported mode at all speeds between zero and 124 mph. Overall, the company claims in total a dozen new technologies are seen for the first time on a normal production car.
