If the Mercedes-Benz PRESAFE® system senses an impending collision, it activates automatically. The system takes precautionary measures to protect you and your passengers if the stability associated with an accident is detected. PRESAFE® is available in many new Mercedes-Benz models. Find a new peace of mind with this cutting-edge safety feature brought to you by Mercedes-Benz.

PRESAFE® Functions

What does the Mercedes-Benz PRESAFE® system do? As mentioned, it’ll kick in when a potential accident is sensed, and then it takes the following steps to protect you from harm:

  • To prevent passenger injuries, the front head restraints adjust and move to the best possible position for maximum crash protection.
  • The windows and sunroof close if a rollover is possible, preventing debris from entering the cabin.
  • Increased tension in the front safety belts helps to protect passengers from injury.

In addition to these standard PRESAFE® features, select Mercedes-Benz models come with PRESAFE® Sound, which protects your hearing from loud noises by emitting a special tone.

Mercedes-Benz Models with PRESAFE®

PRESAFE® is available or standard on the following Mercedes-Benz models, which you can browse at Mercedes-Benz of Chantilly:

What’s the Meaning of “PRESAFE® Functions Limited”?

Your Mercedes-Benz may need service if you get the alert, “PRESAFE® Functions Limited,” which will be displayed on the vehicle’s information pane. You can find this panel located right behind the steering wheel. Most often, this is a quick fix, and a sensor will just need an adjustment or cleaning. Either way, schedule service with Mercedes-Benz of Chantilly and have a certified technician perform an inspection.
