Mercedes-Benz PRESAFE® Features

PRESAFE® uses a network of sensors in order to detect when you are in danger of a collision in your C-Class or other Mercedes-Benz vehicle. The system monitors for things like extreme skidding which indicate the likelihood of an accident. When the system determines that a collision is imminent, PRESAFE® prepares for impact by:

  • Tightening the front seat belts
  • Adjusting the front head restraints
  • Adjusting the front passenger’s seat
  • Closing the windows and sunroof

Mercedes-Benz PRESAFE® Sound

More recent Mercedes-Benz vehicles also benefit from the addition of PRESAFE® Sound. If an accident is indicated, PRESAFE® Sound emits an interference signal from the vehicle’s audio system in order to trigger a reflex in the ears of vehicle occupants. This static noise, called pink noise, ultimately protects Oxford families from the pressures and sounds of a loud collision.

More Mercedes-Benz Active Safety Features

Mercedes-Benz takes driver safety seriously and has included a suite of active safety features across their lineup like:

  • DISTRONIC® with Active Distance Assist – Through automatic braking and acceleration, DISTRONIC® with Active Distance Assist allows drivers to keep a safe distance between their Mercedes-Benz and the vehicle in front of them on West Chester roads.
