This is a preview of the 2012 Mercedes CLS. The vehicle is built in the style of the current Mercedes F800 models and will feature either a plug-in hybrid engine or fuel-cell power trains. It also boasts minivan-like doors and two separate cruise-control and safety mechanisms.
The 2010 Mercedes CLS will feature both DISTRONIC PLUS Traffic Jam Assist and PRE-SAFE 360°. One is a radar-assisted cruise control that includes automatic steering and the other is a brake system designed to apply safety brakes just prior to impact. I doubt either of these systems in the 2012 Mercedes CLS will help to encourage better driving.
