What’s New for ’09

  • Gear-shift buttons are replaced by new, steering-wheel-mounted paddle controls, new “pull” type window switches replace the previous rocker design, while a hill “hold” feature keeps brakes applied during extended stops to minimize driver leg fatigue.
  • A new side blind-spot monitoring system provides audio and visual warnings to the driver, while a guidance system helps the parallel park by identifying parking spaces and providing visual steering directions through an in-dash display.
  • The S550, in both rear- and 4-wheel drive variants, receives new 18-in. wheels along with a leather-wrapped wood steering wheel at no extra charge.
