Designed for Top-Down Travel

A convertible at heart, the S 550 Cabriolet’s four-person cabin emphasizes driver and passenger enjoyment during top-down travel. The softtop disappears into the rear bulkhead with the touch of button, while AIRCAP® uses a speed-sensitive airfoil and a mesh screen to deflect drafts. On chilly Chicago mornings, the AIRSCARF® neck-level heating system provides ample warmth, as does the THERMOTRONIC® intelligent climate control system. During nighttime rides, multi-color LED ambient lighting offers a choice of seven colors, which sweep the front cabin in stylish strokes. Using voice control or the touchpad controller, you can access a variety of features via the 12.3-inch COMAND® display, including:

  • COMAND® hard-drive navigation
  • Rearview camera
  • Burmester® Surround Sound System
  • Bluetooth®* connectivity
  • 10GB Music Register
  • Near-Field Communication technology
  • In-dash 6-disc DVD/CD changer and an SD card reader

Packed with Proactive Safety Systems

Outfitted with active LED-headlamps with Adaptive Highbeam Assist, rain-sensing wipers, and MAGIC VISION CONTROL®, the S 550 Cabriolet provides optimal visibility on dimly lit, winding roads and in stormy weather. The COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS® system utilizes radar to alert you of fast-approaching vehicles ahead, and if necessary, intervenes with Adaptive Brake Assist to prevent an accident. For added rollover protection, pop-up roll bars are integrated into both rear head restraints. Capable of detecting impending collisions or rollovers, PRESAFE® puts occupant safety first by preparing the cabin for impact, potentially lessening the severity of the accident.

Available as an add-on, the optional Driver Assistance Package kicks safety and driver confidence up a notch with:

  • Active Brake Assist with Cross-Traffic Function
  • Active Blind Spot Assist
  • Active Lane Keeping Assist
  • And more!
