PRE-SAFE®
brake.



The Mercedes-Benz protective instinct.

“Electronic crumple zone” for maximum protection of occupants.


1.13 seconds – that’s the average time that a person needs to respond to a traffic risk. But a brief moment of inattention can be enough to substantially increase the time span – with potentially tragic consequences.

Fortunately, Mercedes-Benz provides the driver with an electronic helper who never gets distracted: the PRE-SAFE® brake system. It can warn your car of an impending collision and apply the brakes automatically.

Even where it is impossible to avoid the collision, it can substantially mitigate the consequences by reducing the impact speed, and at the same time the risk for the occupants. So the system functions rather like an “electronic crumple zone”.


In general, the PRE-SAFE® brake system combines several different safety features: modern radar technology from the DISTRONIC PLUS adaptive cruise control is used to assess the situation in front of the car and detect the risk of any impending collision. At the same time, BAS PLUS automatically calculates the required brake pressure and, depending on the situation, assists the driver’s braking manoeuvre all the way to emergency braking.

In the latest version, the PRE-SAFE ® brake can now initiate automatic emergency braking even at low speeds of less than 30 km/h. The flashing adaptive brake light is also illuminated at speeds above 50 km/h to warn following traffic. The PRE-SAFE® brake system therefore not only reduces the accident risk for the vehicle’s occupants, but also the risk for other road users.
