Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC® – provides route-based support and adjusts speeds when approaching bends, junctions, or roundabouts

Active Emergency Stop Assist – Uses sensors to detect objects ahead and stop the vehicle if necessary

Active Lane Change Assist – Uses sensors and radar to assist in safely changing lanes

Active Brake Assist (Standard) – Helps to mitigate or avoid the consequences of rear-end collisions with slower-moving or stopped vehicles ahead

Active Lane Keeping Assist – Warns the driver by means of pulsed vibrations in the steering wheel when the sedan drifts out of its lane

PRE-SAFE® PLUS – Recognizes an imminent collision and prepares the vehicle for impact in various ways

*PRESAFE® closes the side windows when the system’s sensors detect side movements that suggest a possible rollover. A small gap is left near the fully closed position. Seat and head restraints adjust only when equipped with memory system.
