April 17th, 2018 by

It doesn’t matter what model or type of Mercedes-Benz you are driving around the streets of Brampton, one thing you will notice is that you are driving one of the safest cars on the road. Mercedes-Benz has been at the forefront of autonomous technology and has loaded its cars with cutting-edge and reliable safety features.

That has catapulted Mercedes-Benz cars to the front of the line when it comes to driver and passenger safety. If you’re looking for a road safe car in Brampton, you must consider Mercedes-Benz. Here are the top 5 safety features that make the Mercedes-Benz the safest car on the roads in Brampton:

1.    PRESAFE® Technology

The Mercedes-Benz signature PRESAFE® technology, warns all drivers if there is an impending collision with another car. The Mercedes-Benz will adjust the front head restraints, close the windows and sunroof, and tighten seatbelts to prepare for the collision.

2.    DISTRONIC PLUS® with PRESAFE® Brake

The Mercedes-Benz DISTRONIC PLUS® feature acts as your second eyes, so even if you get distracted when driving around, this feature keeps a watch on the road. It uses state-of-the-art radar sensors to scan traffic ahead, and monitors slowing traffic or stopped cars at a red light.

The PRESAFE® Brake system activates if it senses an accident is about to happen, and will automatically initiate around 40% of braking power and alert the driver audibly. If the driver doesn’t respond the system takes over and applies 100% braking power to reduce the impact of an accident.

3.    ATTENTION ASSIST®

The ATTENTION ASSIST® feature in the Mercedes-Benz senses fatigue levels and tiredness of the driver, as it takes notes for more than 70 parameters when you get behind the wheel of your Mercedes. This is done to understand your driving style, and it keeps learning your driving style, and can also sense steering corrections that relate to drowsiness.

If the ATTENTION ASSIST® feature senses that the driver is tired, it will audibly alert the driver and encourage them to stop the car for a rest.

4.    Active Blind Spot Assist and Active Lane Keeping Assist

The Active Blind Spot Assist is a great feature that uses radar sensors to detect vehicles driving next to your Mercedes-Benz, and are in your blind spot. If it notices a car in the blind spot, a red icon will flash in the side mirror to alert the driver.

The Active Lane Keeping Assist is great for when you want to change lanes. This feature uses a special camera that tracks pavement markings when you drive. If the feature notices that you are getting outside of your lane, the steering wheel will start vibrating.

5.    Accident Investigation

Mercedes-Benz takes pride in offering cutting-edge safety features to drivers in its cars, and its Accident Investigation program is further proof of that. The technology helps prevent accidents as it collects data, like impact speed, and collision angles to help drivers avoid accidents.
