Safety & Assistance systems

The Integral Safety Concept from Mercedes-Benz divides vehicle safety into four phases:

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

Safe driving

The drowsiness detection system ATTENTION ASSIST serves to enhance

driving safety, in particular on long trips and during night-time driving. It monitors the driver’s steering behaviour to recognise typical signs of drowsiness and severe loss of attention, and gives a visual and audible warning of impending microsleep.


Crosswind Assist
In the event of danger
In an accident

Mercedes-Benz has also published multilingual rescue guidelines (accessible worldwide on the internet) as a source of information for rescue services.

Assistance systems

Reversing Camera (standard for 250 d 4MATIC)

Reverse parking and manoeuvring is made much easier and safer by the reversing camera (standard for 250 d 4MATIC). Protected by a flap, it automatically extends

when the driver selects reverse gear and shows the area behind the vehicle with dynamic guide lines on the Media Display.


360° Camera (Standard for GLE 350 d 4MATIC and 400 4MATIC)

The 360° camera included in the Parking package (Standard for GLE 350 d 4MATIC and 400 4MATIC) provides you with a realistic all-round view thanks to the interaction of four cameras. The camera is switched on automatically when reverse gear is selected. Alternatively, it can be activated by the driver whenever required. The vehicle and its immediate surroundings can be shown as a bird’s-eye view in the multimedia system display. Even obstacles below the window line are visible to the driver.

Active Parking Assist (standard for the GLE)

Active Parking Assist with PARKTRONIC makes it easier to

find a parking space and also to enter or leave parking

spaces. When activated, it automatically steers the

vehicle into parallel and perpendicular parking spaces,

relieving the driver of the task of steering and braking.

The PARKTRONIC electronic parking assistance system

monitors the front and rear areas while the vehicle is

being manoeuvred and warns the driver if a risk of

collision is detected.
