The new technology allows for the S-Class to project navigation directions at a virtual distance of approximately 10-meters - basically projecting directional arrows and other instructions onto the surface of the road.

Outside of the new 12.8-touchscreen infotainment system and the digital instrument cluster, the S-Class features up to three screens for the rear passengers. The screens have full access to the infotainment system.

Thoughts About The New Touchscreen Infotainment And New Tech In The Mercedes-Benz S-Class

Talk about tech! The new infotainment system looks great, and we're sure it feels great to mess around with. What we're looking forward to is the new MBUX system, and the augmented reality HUD. While projecting directions onto the road is fantastic, the traffic in India may not allow for one to be fully entertained. Ten points for cool factor!
