Mercedes Benz E300: Pre-Safe Sound
Moreover, when out on a dark deserted highway, with no lead car in sight, the Mercedes Benz E300 tends to read the speed limit signs and adapts the speed accordingly. During heavy traffic, the steering pilot seems to pull either extremely right or left and at higher speeds tends to move gently from side to side rather than keeping directly centred.
Besides this, the Mercedes Benz E300 also changes lanes for you when in Drive Pilot. This can be done by signalling your preference and the Mercedes Benz E300 tends to swing around the slower car. Some of the safety features comprise of Pre-safe Sound that tends to send out a short burst of aural interference when a collision is sensed.
This intrusion activates a protective reflex in the human ear, modifying the hearing loss in the event of an accident. If a lateral collision is noticed, the side bolster inflates rapidly, urging the occupant towards the midline of the car in order to decrease the load of impact.
Touch Control Buttons to Steering Wheel of Mercedes Benz E300
Some sweet technological advances have been added by Mercedes-Benz to the infotainment system of Mercedes Benz E300 for 2017 wherein a 12.3-inch LCD is standard in the centre of dashboard. Like the Virtual Cockpit of Audi, the layout of the screen can be changed to contain radio, fuel economy or navigation information together with various gauge layouts.
It tends to get easy in initializing navigation by voice or else one could get stuck utilising the rotary dial or the handwriting recognition system for inputting each number and letter. The map tends to take up the total centre screen though remains consigned to one corner of the gauge cluster.
A rotary dial on the centre console controlled the Comand infotainment system in the earlier models, but Mercedes-Benz added touch control buttons to the steering wheel. It is another way to manipulate the command system by swiping left or right, up or down with a click for selection. The system also supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
