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:

  • The 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 be activated automatically to lower the risk of subsequent accidents and help rescue services locate the car.
  • Automatic ventilation: if an airbag is deployed, the power windows are lowered automatically.
  • Easy opening: after an 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 make opening the doors after a frontal collision easier.
  • Helpful connection: In the event of an accident or breakdown, the Mercedes-Benz emergency call system can automatically establish contact with an emergency call centre.

The declared fuel and energy consumption figures are determined by testing under standardised laboratory conditions to comply with ADR 81/02. Real world consumption is influenced by many additional factors such as fuel quality, individual driving style, load, traffic and vehicle condition. The declared consumption figure should only be used for the purpose of comparison amongst vehicles.
