Mercedes presented its newly redesigned S-Class with a springy performance by a dozen bungee-suspended acrobats and drummers. As for the car, itâ€s a huge leap forward for automotive safety in general and for Mercedes in particular. It combines all the highest-tech safety features that Mercedes has developed in recent years, including a newly enhanced Pre-Safe system that automatically tightens seatbelts just before a collision, closes the sunroof and side-windows (to support airbags), and repositions the seats for better protection [see Whatâ€s New, October]. Lots of other brand-new technological goodies are stuffed in this enlarged Merc-and it looks great, too.
