Safety when driving in curves at the limit is offered by the Torque Vectoring Brakes.

If the ESP® sensors - standard equipment for all Mercedes-Benz passenger cars - detect understeer while the driver accelerates in a curve, the Electronic Stability Program intervenes with a targeted brake application, producing a gentle rotation about the vertical axis.

The effect: the vehicle steers more precisely, reduces the risk of understeer and increases active handling safety.
