It feels like a fight is going on inside the Mercedes-Benz S-Class in the video. But it’s not.
It’s simple – this is the Mercedes-Benz E-Active Body Control system – an important safety feature in the S-Class.
Videos of the Mercedes-Benz E-Active Body Control suspension system are going viral thanks to the “Free Driving Assist” mode that allows cars to bounce up. On crossovers, for example, this mode helps not to get stuck in deep ruts and in the sand.
This video was posted to LinkedIn by Mercedes-Benz Head of Corporate Communications Tobias Just. It shows that even the S-Class can bounce up.
As far as we know, the E-Active Body Control suspension featured on the S-Class doesn’t have the same bounce mode found on the GLE and GLS. However, footage shows the S-Class bouncing up and down, with each damper being controlled separately.
It seems that Mercedes-Benz engineers have experimented with the S-Class software to add a new feature to the suspension.
A feature like this doesn’t seem necessary on a crossover, but… E-Active Body Control is used in conjunction with Pre-Safe Impulse Side, which raises the car’s body when safety sensors detect a side impact risk. This technology helps to improve safety by transferring the impact to a more durable part of the structure – the car’s sills.
