Mercedes-Benz PRESAFE® System Protections

As soon as the PRESAFE® system kicks in, it takes multiple protective measures to ensure the safety of your vehicle’s occupants.

  • The windows and sunroof close to prevent debris from entering the cabin during a rollover.
  • For maximum crash protection, the front head restraints adjust to move to the best position for protection.
  • Seat belt tension is increased for the front seats.

PRESAFE® Integrated Systems

Aspects of the PRESAFE® system integrate with other Mercedes-Benz safety technologies, such as:

  • PRESAFE® Sound: Working alongside PRESAFE®, this feature emits a tone from the audio system to create a natural reflex reaction in the human ear. This reaction helps protect hearing from the loud noise of a collision.
  • DISTRONIC PLUS®: Paired with the PRESAFE® system’s brake feature, this intelligent adaptive cruise control system will slow or stop your vehicle should a straight-ahead vehicle suddenly brake on the streets of Mililani.
