The new S-class from Mercedes-Benz equipped by Bosch  
 

 

 

 

In the automotive industry, the name "Bosch" stands for expertise as a supplier and partner in all areas of vehicle equipment, particularly when it comes to helping develop innovations to advance the state of automotive technology.

An especially notable contribution to Mercedes-Benz's new S-class is Bosch's electronic driver information system Comand (Cockpit Management and Data System), developed jointly with the Stuttgart automobile manufacturer. The car's navigation system with optional dynamic routing, radio, telephone, CD player, tape deck and even a television are all operated via Comand.

An important component in the cockpit is the instrument cluster using black screen technology which was developed jointly with Mercedes-Benz. Along with standard information (oil level, fuel consumption, etc.) a large LCD matrix shows on command additional information. The display for the cruise control as well as for the radar distance alarm, depending on the vehicle equipment package, are also integrated.

And when it comes to driving technology, the vehicle dynamics control system ESP (Electronic Stability Program) from Bosch enhances driving stability by optimally distributing brake and driving force in critical driving situations like braking in curves or during evasive maneuvers.

Bosch's headlight systems are a further contribution to S-class safety - from the Xenon low-beam headlight and the automatic dynamic vertical aim control system, all the way to the headlight cleaning system.

The AB 7.8 Airbag system provides all around protection of the passengers. It can control up to 16 airbags and belt tensioners. The pneumatic central locking system with emergency opening also serves as a power lock for all vehicle doors including the trunk and permits remote opening of the trunk from the passenger compartment.

The engine management systems for the 6-, 8- and 12- cylinder gasoline engines of the S-class provide very low emission levels at optimum power output. The automatic cylinder shutoff for the 8-cylinder engines of the S 500 lowers fuel consumption by another 7 percent. The Bosch Common Rail System employed in the diesel versions of the S-class helps make the engine extremely quiet as well and keep fuel consumption at a minimum.

Comfort is supplied by the Bosch Parktronic. It simplifies parking and maneuvering with the help of ultrasonic sensors. The air quality sensor ensures a good climate in the passenger compartment.
