MAGIC VISION CONTROL

The photo shows the windscreeen wiper of the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupé with MAGIC VISION CONTROL.

The adaptive windscreen wiper system provides the driver with an optimum view even while wiping. Washer fluid is sprayed directly ahead of the wiper blades and wiped away immediately. This is done via small nozzles in a distribution rail above the wiper blade. Thanks to this precisely targeted distribution, washer fluid consumption is reduced by up to 50%. MAGIC VISION CONTROL automatically adjusts the amount of washer fluid dispensed to the prevailing conditions, e.g. the outside temperature or degree of soiling. When operating while the panoramic sliding sunroof is open, the amount of washer fluid is actively reduced to avoid spraying the interior. Heating of the washer fluid reservoir and all the hoses effectively protects the system against icing-up, ensuring easier cleaning of the windscreen even in low temperatures. The wiper blade heating additionally prevents the typical build-up of snow on the wiper blades.
