I haven't had a dipstick in a Mercedes for 8 years and I never missed it.
If that is your decision making process for a new cars, you'll be running out of choices soon.

Sensors-based systems are more or less the standard on any make/model and will be more so in the future...

As for Start/Stop, you can already override that.
