Mercedes-Benz stands for automotive safety. That’s why our vehicles support their passengers even in critical driving situations, so that every drive is a good one, if at all possible.
When Mercedes-Benz first unveiled PRE-SAFE® in 2002, the primary aim was to combat the problem of the invaluable seconds often wasted just before an accident happens. The optional PRE-SAFE® safety system can make effective use of this time. Its sensors can detect critical driving situations, such as heavy oversteer/understeer, abrupt steering manoeuvres, panic braking and emergency stops. The PRE-SAFE® electronic system evaluates this information and can initiate preventive measures in typical critical situations to protect the vehicle occupants.
