Mercedes-Benz remains at the forefront of driver-assist and safety technology by bringing drivers around Kingman features like the Mercedes-Benz PRESAFE® system. A pre-collision system, this feature activates if an accident is about to occur and then takes action to ensure the safety of you and your passengers. Best of all, it’s available in many new Mercedes-Benz vehicles. Learn all about this advanced safety feature with the following overview from Mercedes-Benz of Henderson.

How Does PRESAFE® Work?

Using sensors, the PRESAFE® Mercedes-Benz system can detect potential accidents and take quick action to help protect you and your passengers. Once the system activates, it takes the following steps:

  • Tension is increased in the front seat belts.
  • Closes the windows and sunroof to prevent debris from entering the cabin during a rollover.
  • Adjusts the front head restraints for maximum crash protection.

What is the Mercedes-Benz PRESAFE® Sound Feature?

If you want to build upon the PRESAFE® system, Mercedes-Benz drivers can find models that include PRESAFE® Sound. This pre-collision system works to protect the hearing of occupants by emitting a “pink noise” that will cause a reaction in the inner ear during a crash. Working in tandem, the PRESAFE® and PRESAFE® Sound safety systems function together to protect drivers and passengers in Boulder City.

What is the Mercedes-Benz PRESAFE® Impulse Side?

If you’re a Mercedes-Benz aficionado, you’ve likely heard rumblings about the exciting new PRESAFE® Impulse Side feature. But what does this PRESAFE® extension do? Mercedes-Benz PRESAFE® Impulse Side addresses the lack of crumple zones on the side of the vehicle to mitigate the damage during a side collision. The system uses sensors to detect an impending impact and works to minimize the harm.

A chamber located in the front-seat side bolster activates, bringing on rapid inflation. This chain of events instantly pushes the seat’s occupant away from the impact zone towards the more protected center of the vehicle. The inflation also reduces the relative speed of the impact. Currently, you’ll have to opt for select models like the S-Class if you’re interested in PRESAFE® Impulse Side.
