How safe is the Mercedes-Benz GLE?

When you are searching for a new SUV you might realize that there is a lot of competition these days. Just about every automaker has their own SUV lineup to explore. It can be easy to get distracted by technology features like Apple CarPlay or in-cabin Wi-Fi, but there are more important aspects to explore. One area you will want to explore more closely is a vehicle’s safety features and ratings. Today we’re going to take a closer look at one of your options, the Mercedes-Benz GLE to see just how safe it is.

2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE Safety Features

Mercedes-Benz is known for creating innovative technologies to help improve the overall driving experience. Many of these technologies have to do with safety. One of these advanced features is ATTENTION ASSIST®. This feature continuously monitors up to 70 parameters of driving behavior and can automatically alert the driver with visual and audible warnings if it detects signs of drowsiness on long trips. This system can also provide useful information to drivers using the dashboard display.
Another available safety feature is the Mercedes-Benz PRE-SAFE® system. This system is exclusive to Mercedes-Benz models and helps protect drivers and passengers by detecting instability during certain vehicle maneuvers that suggest a collision or rollover is imminent. The system can then tighten the front seat belts, adjust the front passenger seat and close the windows and sunroof. All of these actions help the occupants prepare for a possible impact.
