Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe Actively Banks On Corners
According to an informative article over at c|net, Mercedes-Benz has followed up its excellent 2014 S-Class sedan with a new coupe version, employing not only an extraordinarily beautiful design but getting new ride technology as well. Mercedes-Benz pushed the four-door coupe idea with its CLS-Class in 2004, but this year the company will introduce a true two-door coupe version of its S-Class flagship sedan.
The 2015 S-Class Coupe is based on the Concept S-class Coupe that Mercedes-Benz showed off last year at the Geneva auto show. Rather than the imposing form of the S-Class sedan, the coupe model borrows from other areas of Mercedes-Benz’s styling toolbox. In also features a radar-based system enabling adaptive cruise control and also includes a collision prevention system, which automatically hits the brakes. It can prevent a collision at speeds of 25 mph or below, and help mitigate crashes at higher speeds.
Considering there are some 800,000 auto mechanics in the US, about one for every 316 cars, it makes sense that most drivers don’t know much about cars. Unfortunately, dishonest mechanics might exploit that inexperience, overcharging for auto repairs or suggesting unnecessary and expensive services, to name a few. How do you know if your mechanic is being honest?
All new cars and light trucks, since 2008, have come equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system. The TPMS system detects when a tire becomes under-inflated and lights up a warning light on the dash. So what’s the big deal? Well, under-inflated tires can be a real safety concern. First of all, they don’t handle properly, and that can lead to an accident. And second, under-inflated tires can overheat and cause the tire to come apart, which can also lead to an accident.
