What Does the PRESAFE® Mercedes-Benz System Do?

When your Mercedes-Benz vehicle detects that an accident is about to occur, the PRESAFE® system will initiate. The following steps are taken to help protect you:

  • Front head restraints adjust themselves for maximum crash protection. They will move to the best position for preventing passenger injuries.
  • If a rollover is possible, the windows and sunroof will close. This will help to prevent debris from entering the cabin.
  • Front safety belts increase tension to better protect passengers from injury.

In addition to that, select models will emit a tone that causes a reaction in your inner ear, protecting you from hearing loud noises. The PRESAFE® and PRESAFE® Sound safety systems work hand-in-hand with other Mercedes-Benz technology features to help give you more peace of mind when driving through Ladue and beyond.
