The new C-Class Wagon features the latest driving assistance systems, providing a higher standard of active safety than its predecessor. It is able to drive semi-autonomously in certain situations. To do this it keeps a close eye on the traffic situation: improved camera and radar systems allow it to see up to 500 m ahead. The vehicle's surroundings are scanned by radar across a distance of up to 250 m to the front, 40 m to the sides and 80 m to the rear, while with the camera, a range of up to 500 m is possible to the front, including 90 m in 3D. The C-Class also uses map and navigation data for assistance functions.
For example, Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC (part of the Intelligent Drive package) is able to support the driver in numerous situations on the basis of map information and will predictively adjust the speed e.g. when approaching bends, junctions or roundabouts. Other new developments include Active Lane Change Assist and Active Emergency Stop Assist as new functions of Active Steering Assist.
