What is Mercedes-Benz PRESAFE®?
When Mercedes-Benz PRESAFE® senses an imminent accident, it takes precautions to protect you, your passengers, and your vehicle. It’s standard or optional on most new Mercedes-Benz models and is just one of the brand’s many revolutionary safety technologies. Learn more about how this system works and the vehicles that offer it below!
What Does PRESAFE® Do?
If your Mercedes-Benz model detects an impending collision, the PRESAFE® Mercedes-Benz system springs into action. It does the following to help keep you and your passengers out of harm’s way:
- The front head restraints adjust for improved protection in a crash. They move to the best possible position for avoiding crash-related injuries like whiplash.
- The windows and sunroof close. This helps prevent injuries caused by debris entering the cabin during a rollover.
- The front seat belts tighten to better protect you and your front passenger from injuries.
Models like the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class come standard with PRESAFE® Sound — an extension of PRESAFE®. When PRESAFE® activates so does PRESAFE® Sound. It emits a “pink noise” via the audio system to stimulate a natural reflex reaction in your ear, which helps protect your hearing in the event of an accident.
