Integral safety concept

The integral safety concept comprises all the stress-relief, warning and protection systems which provide for safe driving, offer support in critical situations and help to diminish the consequences of accidents.

The integral safety concept from Mercedes-Benz groups together all the stress-relief, warning and protection systems that provide for safety in Mercedes-Benz passenger cars. It comprises four areas: "Safe driving", "In the event of danger", In an accident" and "After an accident."
"Safe driving" covers all systems and measures to help the driver master difficult situations and to promote driver fitness by means of stress-relieving functions. These include such well-known systems as the Electronic Stability Program (ESP®), BAS PLUS Brake Assist, DISTRONIC PLUS or the Intelligent Light System, along with the latest assistance systems such as Night View Assist Plus, Lane Keeping Assist, ATTENTION ASSIST or Adaptive Highbeam Assist – all of which are available for the new E-Class.

"In the event of danger" – this area comprises systems which are able to initiate precautionary measures to protect occupants in critical driving situations. These include the latest generation of the PRE-SAFE® system and the effective PRE-SAFE® Brake system – which are also available in the new E-Class.
"In an accident", systems are activated to protect the passengers according to the given situation – first and foremost effective retention systems or an intelligently designed body with a particularly rigid occupant cell. The NECK-PRO head restraints come into play here, for example, along with the customary seat belts and airbags. "After an accident", measures are required that can help to quickly locate those involved and to prevent more serious consequences by facilitating their rescue. Depending on the model and model series concerned, such functions include automatic shutdown of the fuel supply or automatic door-lock release. And last but not least, detailed safety instructions for the emergency services are available on the internet.

All-round support and protection.
