2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Ambient Lighting

2021 Mercedes S-Class Interior Shines With New Ambient Lighting

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has always had one of the best interiors, whether it be the premium leather stripes, the latest technology or the amount of features on offer. But the company promises an even more premium experience with its next model – Mercedes has even gone so far as to label the interior of the upcoming 2021 S-Class as “third place.” In other words, a refuge between home and work.

One thing to look forward to when entering the 2021 S-Class is the new ambient lighting. Hundreds of fiber optics made of a fully transparent coating cover the door panels and floors, with each fiber optic fixture comprising approximately 250 LED lights. The goal, according to Mercedes, is for the new ambient lighting fixtures to create a single continuous line of light throughout the vehicle.

And these new ambient lighting features are actually integrated into driver assistance programs. So, for example, Blind Spot Monitoring would alert you to a possible collision by projecting a bright red animation throughout the cabin. The additional mood lighting also works in unison with the updated Energizing Comfort Control feature, which is only available as part of the Heat & Comfort Pack.

The same energizing comfort characteristics of the previous S-Class and other Mercedes-Benz products are retained. And just like the option currently found in other vehicles, it combines music, air conditioning, seat massage functions and even scents to create a relaxed environment in the vehicle. Everything works at the push of a button or via the “Hey, Mercedes” voice control system.

That’s all to say that the 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class should be really nice inside – more so than its predecessor, according to all the teasers we’ve seen. Additional ambient lighting features and updated energizing comfort options will join an all-new MBUX infotainment system and a completely new design. The new MBUX configuration features a huge vertically oriented touchscreen and a more advanced digital instrument panel. The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class debuts in September.
