What is Mercedes-Benz PRESAFE®?

Mercedes-Benz GLE with Mountain Background

Mercedes-Benz is known for luxury and performance, but they’ve also long been an innovator in safety technology and driver-assist features. Standard on many new Mercedes-Benz vehicles, Mercedes-Benz PRESAFE® is one of the leading Mercedes-Benz safety features and takes precautionary measures in the event a potential collision is detected. See how this system can help protect you and your loved ones when out and about in Ottawa.

How Does the PRESAFE® Mercedes-Benz System Work?

Once a possible accident is sensed, the Mercedes-Benz PRESAFE® system takes the following steps to protect you and your passengers:

  • For maximum crash protection, the front head restraints adjust for maximum crash protection to prevent passenger injuries.
  • To prevent debris from entering the cabin of your vehicle, the sunroof will automatically close if a rollover is possible.
  • Tension in the front safety belts is increased to protect occupants from injury.

Additional PRESAFE® Sound Feature

Along with PRESAFE®, some Mercedes-Benz vehicles come with another feature called PRESAFE® Sound. This feature works to protect and preserve your hearing from the loud noises of a collision by emitting a specific “pink noise.” This tone works within the inner ear, causing a reaction that protects your ears.
