Mercedes-Benz: Keeping You and Your Passengers Safe

December 14th, 2020 by 

With yours and your passengers’ safety at the forefront, Mercedes-Benz is committed to ensuring that all of our vehicles are well equipped to protect all riders.  Every Mercedes-Benz vehicle is engineered to reduce the likelihood of accidents as well as decreasing the level of damage in the event of an accident.  Equipped with various crumple zones, the Mercedes-Benz vehicles are designed to keep the cabin isolated along with an advanced airbag system.  This advanced airbag system provides protection for the head, knees, and more with side impact airbags that deploy in the rear of the vehicle.  The seatbelts are reinforced with airbags which distribute the force of the impact resulting in added rib cage protection.

Mercedes-Benz aims to prevent accidents before they even occur with their top of the line safety features.  The following are just a few of the highly advanced safety features that are available on Mercedes-Benz vehicles.

PRESAFE®

Utilizing a network of sensors, this patented system is brilliantly designed to anticipate collisions.  When the PRESAFE® System detects a collision, the seat belts tighten, the headrests adjusts, and the windows close.  The newer Mercedes-Benz vehicles emit pink noise which triggers the inner part of your ear.  This pink noise protects your hearing from damage that is caused by the pressure of an impact.

Available on: A-Class Sedan, C-Class Sedan, E-Class Sedan, S-Class Sedan, C-Class Coupe, CLA Coupe, CLS Coupe, GLA SUV, GLC SUV, GLE SUV, GLS SUV, G-Class SUV, Mercedes-AMG® GT

Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC®

Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC® maintains a selectable set of car lengths between you and the vehicle in front of you.  This safety feature slows and stops your vehicle by detecting the traffic patterns of the vehicles in front of you.

Available on: A-Class Sedan, C-Class Sedan, E-Class Sedan, S-Class Sedan, C-Class Coupe, CLA Coupe, CLS Coupe, GLA SUV, GLC SUV, GLE SUV, GLS SUV, G-Class SUV, Mercedes-AMG® GT

ATTENTION ASSIST®

Driving for an extended period of time can result in fatigue.  ATTENTION ASSIST® monitors your driving habits and interaction with the vehicle controls.  With this system, your Mercedes-Benz vehicle is able to detect steering corrections that could suggest that the driver is drowsy and will trigger an alert to encourage the driver to stop and take a break.

Available on: A-Class Sedan, C-Class Sedan, E-Class Sedan, S-Class Sedan, C-Class Coupe, CLA Coupe, CLS Coupe, GLA SUV, GLC SUV, GLE SUV, GLS SUV, G-Class SUV, Mercedes-AMG® GT
