Moreover, the new COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS system helps prevent collisions at speeds of over 7 km/h. If the risk of a collision persists and the driver fails to respond, the system is able to carry out autonomous braking at speeds of up to 200 km/h. It can also prevent rear-end collisions at up to 40 km/h.

Available options on the new Mercedes-Benz S 600 include head-up display and a touchpad with multilingual handwriting recognition.
