2009 model year changes

Steering-wheel shift paddles are now standard across the S-Class line, as are redesigned push-pull power-window controls. All models also get a new Brake Hold feature that makes uphill starts a little easier. V8 S550 models get increased standard equipment, including active ventilated-heated front seats, a wood-and-leather-trimmed steering wheel and a power trunk lid. Distronic Plus, the optional radar-based cruise-control system that maintains a set distance to vehicles ahead, now includes Blind Spot Assist, a feature that warns if a vehicle is in the blind spot if the turn signal is activated.
