What Does the PRESAFE® Mercedes-Benz System Do?

The PRESAFE® system uses a variety of sensors to detect impending collisions, and will automatically and immediately activate its features to reduce the effects of the impact. Here is what this advanced system does:

  • Front head restraints adjust for maximum crash protection to reduce and prevent passenger injuries.
  • The windows and sunroof close if a rollover is possible to prevent debris like broken glass and vehicle parts from entering the cabin.
  • Tension in the front safety belts is increased to protect occupants from injury or reduce the severity of the injuries.
  • In select models, PRESAFE® Sound emits a tone that causes a reaction in the inner ear to protect the eardrum from damage.

The PRESAFE® and PRESAFE® Sound safety systems work in tandem with other Mercedes-Benz features to give you more peace of mind while exploring East Greenwich and beyond.
