What Does the PRESAFE® Mercedes-Benz System Do?

Using advanced vehicle sensors the PRESAFE® can assess the likelihood of a collision, it will automatically activate specific measures to mitigate the severity of passenger injury during an impact. Here are the steps Mercedes-Benz PRESAFE® takes:

  1. Front head restraints adjust position for maximum crash protection to reduce and prevent injuries.
  2. The windows and sunroof close if a rollover is imminent, to prevent dangerous debris from entering the cabin.
  3. Front safety belt tension is increased to protect occupants from injury.
  4. PRESAFE® Sound: In select models, the system can emit a special tone that causes a reaction in the inner ear to prevent the eardrums from damage.

The PRESAFE® and PRESAFE® Sound safety systems can work together with other safety features like Blind Spot Assist, Collision Prevention Assist, and more to take safety on Gilbert roads to the next level.
