While it started a few days ago, the approval for the change of the year 20/1 for the series 217 – the S-class Coupé and convertible, account for some of the functions really silently and secretly, which will be in production until the end of may even from the factory. We have looked at the Details.
Change the year 20/1 brings partly a step backwards
With the change of the year 20/1, Mercedes-Benz has the S-class Coupé and Cabriolet are technically, at least in Parts – quite thinned out, and omitted in the future on a number of technical functions, although other functions have been added.
While the Active steering assist to a rescue alley function extendedand the Active brake assistant a fast turn-off function with storage at the end of emergency braking function then, if you remove both the preparation for the NFC key card (Code 896), as well as the widely acclaimed MAGIC BODY CONTROL suspension (487) in the series 217.
Changes in Parking and Maneuvering, and the absence of the lane change assistant
You can look to Park on the point “and Are” in the price list, you will notice the Changes not so quickly as it would have in reality effectively. So you designate the “Active Park assistant with PARKTRONIC” is not just accidentally “Park-assist PARKTRONIC”, but can be the same as the automated Parking functions (i.e., of Bremen, on the Gas) be omitted without replacement Draw. This also relates to the previously identical features in the Park package with rear view camera and Parking package with 360 degree camera.
In the price list of the Parking package me with reversing camera (Code P44) it means for example only: “The combination of Park assistant, PARKTRONIC, and rear view camera assists you when Parking, backing out of Parking spaces and Maneuvering.” Effectively, the active functions are omitted but wherein the System is confined to warning sounds and Displays.
In comparison, the previous price list (change year 19/2): “Self-Parking – or stress-free Parking let.[….]… or from the Active Park assistant during the Parking support”
The package P 44 z..B. in this case, in the future, made up of the following components:
- 12 ultrasonic sensors (4 each at the front and back and 2 on the side of the Front and rear bumpers)
- Rear view camera with display in the Media Display (Standard and wide-angle view with virtual guides, in addition, in the case of trailer hitch with trailer mode and Zoom function).
- Parking assist, PARKTRONIC (Visual and audible warning of up to a speed of 10 km/h). Optical and acoustic warning in case of detected cross traffic, if necessary, automatishce emergency brake (only in conjunction with blind spot assist or Active blind spot assist).
When driving assistant package (Code 23P): series 213 is omitted in the future, the Active Lane Change Assistant. In Parallel, there is no confirmation of the driving activity via the steering wheel buttons and Touch Control Buttons and more is possible in the future, but only via steering commands of the driver.
Certification rules changed ?
The reason for the Changes are supposed to be Changes in the certification requirements, although it is questionable whether it has an effect then, logically, the future of the entire vehicle portfolio of Mercedes-Benz, or you want to simply save the costs for the certifications for the end of the series.
