Part of what has helped Mercedes to establish themselves as the greatest automotive designers and engineers on the planet is their ability to leave no area ignored. Mercedes is big on everything and that includes safety.
First of all, Mercedes vehicles are designed with the PRESAFE® system. This gives your vehicle the ability to sense accidents before they happen by employing sensors and analyzing input. The output is a lightning-fast response: seat belts tightened, windows and sunroof closed and the headrests are even adjusted.
A host of other systems augment the basic PRESAFE® system. Distronic Plus has the ability to apply the brakes (100% pressure) and also sound an audible alert when a frontal collision appears imminent. Lane Keeping Assist uses a camera to analyze lane markings and vibrates the steering wheel to warn you if you begin drifting out of your lane.
Mercedes has even designed a safety feature to prevent drowsy driving, which is a common and relatively unreported cause of accidents. A highly complex technology-- ATTENTION ASSIST®--first determines your driving habits and then issues alerts when signs of drowsiness, such as steering corrections, occur.
The safety systems on Mercedes vehicles are sophisticated and powerful. They are part of what inspires confidence in every Mercedes owner.
