Safety - at the heart of all our thinking.

The Integral Safety Concept from Mercedes-Benz divides vehicle safety into four phases:

Phase 1: safe driving

Phase 2: in critical situations

Phase 3: in an accident

Phase 4: after an accident

To reduce consequential damage after an accident and support the work of the rescue services, a number of different actions are initiated, depending on the type and severity of the impact registered by the system:

  • Best possible protection: the engine can be turned off automatically and the fuel supply can be cut off.
  • Eye-catching lighting: hazard and emergency interior lights can activate automatically to lower the risk of accidents and help locate the car.
  • Automatic ventilation: if an airbag is deployed, the power windows are lowered automatically.
  • Easy opening: after a serious accident the doors are unlocked automatically to make it easier for the occupants or rescue workers to open the doors.
  • Measures to aid rescue: integral crash joints between the wing and the door can make opening the doors after a frontal collision easier.
