The new generation Mercedes CL Class features a host of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and infotainment features.

ADAS highlights:

Active Lane Keeping Assist: a camera behind the windscreen recognises continuous carriageway markings and gives a warning if the car unintentionally leaves its lane.

Active Blind Spot Assist: this radar-based system warns the driver before a lane-change if it detects another vehicle in the exterior mirror’s blind spot.

Brake Assist PLUS: this system uses radar sensors to recognise an impending rear-end collision, calculates the necessary degree of braking assistance and makes it available immediately when the driver depresses the brake pedal.

Speed Limit Assist: a camera fitted behind the windscreen detects speed limit signs on the roadside. The relevant limit is then displayed in navigation system map display and in the instrument cluster.

Infotainment highlights:

COMAND APS: the navigation data are stored on a hard disc. Further functions include the MUSIC REGISTER and voice control.

SPLITVIEW: the driver and front passenger are able to view different content on one and the same screen at the same time.

Media Interface: this universal interface allows portable audio devices to be connected to and controlled by the infotainment system of the CL-Class.
