An example of the Heads Up Display featured in a C-Class model

Eyes on the road! Our heads up display

The most important thing a driver can do to stay safe on the road is to give it their complete attention, but so many of the newest innovations mean the driver has to take their eyes off the road in order, to focus on gadgets in the cabin.

With so many distractions, we think the Heads Up Display is a feature of the C-Class that really needs shouting about.

Take Flight
Just like how a jetfighter projects immediate and necessary details onto the pilot’s windscreen during flight, the Heads Up Display in C-Class models project real time information the driver needs, so that they never have to look away from the road.

Using a system of high powered LEDs to project the image, the windscreen shows speed, current gear and information from the SatNav within the drivers eyeline, helping drivers keep focussed on what’s most important, the road.

It even shows information from the on board DISTRONIC system, which looks after the drivers safety, tracking the distance between cars and working with the cars own smart breaking systems.

For Gamers and Car Connoisseurs
And if you want to live life in the fast lane, the AMG version will show your racing lap time and a helpful rev bar, which will help you perfectly time your upshifts, helping you squeeze extra seconds out of the track, just like a videogame!

Of course, to really appreciate how these innovations can change the way you drive you have to see them for yourself. Why not book a test drive today:
