Safety

The reassuring feeling of driving a Mercedes-Benz

We are the first automotive manufacturer worldwide to have developed an integral safety concept, aimed at avoiding accidents, ensuring ideal responses to dangers and lessening the consequences of accidents. For the occupants of a Mercedes and for all other road users, too.


Phase 1: safe driving

The drowsiness detection system ATTENTION ASSIST serves to enhance driving safety, especially on long trips and at night. It monitors the steering behaviour of the driver to recognise typical signs of drowsiness and severe loss of attention, and gives a visual and acoustic warning of impending microsleep.

Phase 2: In an accident

In an accident, the intelligently coordinated restraint systems and the structure of the vehicle’s bodyshell make an effective contribution towards optimum protection for

the vehicle’s occupants. First and foremost the airbags: front airbags for the driver and front passenger each triggered in two stages depending on the registered severity of the impact, sidebags for the driver and front passenger, windowbags between the A- and C-pillars, a kneebag for the driver plus optional sidebags in the rear.

Restraint systems

Airbags

During a collision, the airbags help to protect the head and torso of the driver and front passenger. In addition they stabilize the entire body. This can reduce the risk of severe injuries in an accident. The following airbags can be seen as a standard:


• Sidebags for the driver and front passenger provide more protection during a side impact. It helps to protect the upper body and pelvic area of the driver and front passenger. In addition they stabilise the entire body. This can reduce the risk of severe injuries in an accident.


• Windowbags between the A and C-pillars can protect the head areas of driver, front passenger and occupants in the outer rear seats.


• Knee bag for driver for protection in the knee contact area with the dashboard.


• Driver and front passenger airbag with two-stage activation according to severity of impact.


• Seat occupancy sensor deactivates the airbag on the front passenger side if the seat is not occupied or occupied by a child seat.
