What is Mercedes Pre-Safe?
Aside from being a leader in luxury and a preeminent status symbol brand, Mercedes-Benz is known for pushing the boundaries on safety and technology. To that end, the accident sensing Mercedes-Benz Pre-Safe system prepares the occupant compartment by optimizing passenger safety in the moments preceding a collision or single-car crash, including a rollover event.
Pre-Safe employs a series of sensors to detect instabilities caused by sudden braking or steering that would upset the balance of a vehicle. The radar-based sensors also detect approaching vehicles on a potential collision course with a Mercedes. Multiple versions of Pre-Safe are available, and they are standard or optional, depending on the model and equipment.
