Mercedes-Benz takes safety seriously and they have included a number of preventative and internal safety features in all of their cars. In case of an accident, the car’s aluminum and high-strength steel frame helps to protect passengers. The vehicle’s Electronic Stability Program (ESP) helps keep the car going in a steady and intended direction of travel, even around corners. If a driver is out of control, the ESP can brake the wheels and reduce engine output to bring the vehicle under control.
In addition to all of the standard safety features, buyers also have a few extra features that are preventative safety measures. One of these features, Active Blind Spot Assist, uses radar technology that senses when a vehicle enters the blind-spot area on either side the car and alerts drivers by illuminating an icon in the appropriate side mirror, instrument cluster and makes a warning sound. Also available is BAS PLUS with cross-traffic assist. This technology uses radar sensors to scan the road ahead at driving speeds up to approximately 45 mph. Cross-Traffic Assist uses radar plus advanced cameras to help detect a potential collision with vehicles approaching from either side of an intersection ahead, or with pedestrians in the car’s path.
