Decades of preparation. Milliseconds of proof.
For well over half a century, Mercedes-Benz engineers have been devoted to preparing for a moment they hope never occurs. From the invention of the crumple zone to countless innovations in occupant protection and accident avoidance, the safety firsts of Mercedes-Benz often set a standard that all automobiles eventually follow.
Today, a Mercedes-Benz offers exclusive new breakthroughs to help make an accident less severe, less damaging, or even less likely. True to their heritage, they’re engineered to protect you in ways you might never have imagined. And with the hope that you’ll never have to.
The exclusive PRESAFE® system can sense that a collision might be imminent, and help prepare for it in the precious moments leading up to it.
DISTRONIC PLUS® with PRESAFE® Brake
Even a moment of driver distraction can have life-changing results. With DISTRONIC PLUS®, advanced radar sensors vigilantly scan traffic ahead for stopped or slowing traffic.
Even in the most exciting vehicle, a long journey can bring about driver fatigue.
Active Blind Spot Assist and Active Lane Keeping Assist
Danger can come from any direction. Blind Spot Assist goes a step beyond your side mirrors.
When radar sensors in the rear bumper detect that a vehicle is alongside yours, a red icon lights up in the side mirror to let you know. If you signal for a lane change, an alert sounds. With Lane Keeping Assist, a special camera watches the markings on the pavement as you drive. If it senses that you’re drifting out of your lane, it vibrates the steering wheel. And with either system, advanced active technology can apply the brakes on one side of the vehicle, to help guide you back into your own lane.
