Mercedes SL 550 gives ‘hands free access’ new meaning

Mercedes-Benz has built a luxury car brand known for its high quality German engineering and refined designs, but now they’re trying to make a claim as a hi-tech auto maker to boot.

Features like a bass-enhancing speaker system that resonates through the front chassis of the car to create orchestra-quality sound while you’re cruising down the Autobahn with the top down can really add to the luxury car experience. And perks like opening and closing a trunk without using your hands can come in handy when you’re trying to take your groceries in the house.

See these features and more in this video segment from’s coverage of the 2012 Canadian International Auto Show:
