What Can the PRESAFE® Mercedes-Benz System Do?

When your Mercedes-Benz vehicle’s many sensors detect that an accident is imminent, the PRESAFE® safety technology kicks in, taking steps almost instantaneously to reduce the risk of injury to vehicle occupants:

  • The head restraints in the driver and passenger front seat adjust for optimum crash protection, moving to the best position to prevent/reduce injury.
  • The system automatically closes the windows and sunroof if the possibility of a rollover is detected, to prevent debris from entering the cabin.
  • The tension in the front safety belts is increased to protect the occupants from injury.
  • PRESAFE® Sound: This additional system is available in select models. It emits a tone that causes a reaction in the inner ear to protect your eardrum from the loud noises of a car crash.

This technology works in tandem with other Mercedes-Benz features for the utmost assurance on any Mesa or Fountain Hills roads you may venture on.
