Mercedes-Benz Splitview

With that carefully chosen wording, the agency effectively gave the go-ahead to one of Mercedes-Benz’s most prized features: the Splitview screen, which shows different content to the driver and the person riding shotgun. Developed jointly with supplier Bosch and first offered in 2009, the $710 Splitview feature is currently exclusive to the top-of-the-line S-class sedan and CL-class coupe. Other car companies, such as Nissan, have lobbied NHTSA to endorse split screens, suggesting that Mercedes may have some company in the near future and that front-seat passengers may soon have something more entertaining to watch than the road ahead.
