Mercedes-Benz Continues to Lead the Way In Safety Tech

Safety Tech

Since the production of their Motorwagen in 1886, Mercedes-Benz has been striving to innovate and develop ways to make the absolute best automobile. Here are a few ways Mercedes-Benz has always and continues to luxury be the most forward-thinking automaker on the planet. Drivers in the Deerfield, IL and greater Chicagoland area can take a quick step back in time to see how Mercedes-Benz continues to set the precedent for safety.

A History of Development

The airbag system, crumple zones, crash testing, and ABS were all developed by Mercedes-Benz and remain industry standards. In the past 20 years, Mercedes-Benz has also created groundbreaking systems like PRESAFE® which detects signs of imminent collisions. In mere milliseconds, the system can tighten up seatbelts and adjust head restraints to maximize safety. Later iterations would also include intuitive braking—an industry first that continues to be imitated. To this day, the German luxury marque continues to distinguish itself from rival brands like BMW.

Keeping You Out of Harm’s Way

Mercedes-Benz offers a number of safety features developed specifically to avoid collisions. Active Blind Spot Assist and Active Lane Keeping Assist use radar sensors and cameras to detect your habits, the road condition, pavement markings, and other vehicles to alert the driver or even take evasive action in order to avoid a collision. Every single Mercedes-Benz offers Attention Assist, which measures 70 parameters of your personal driving habits and detects the onsets of drowsiness in order to alert you and even encourage you to stop for a rest. While BMW offers similar systems, they are not offered on nearly as many models. So when it comes to BMW vs Mercedes-Benz Safety, Mercedes-Benz is the clear cut winner. Also—with so many patents and industry firsts—BMW can only replicate the advances made by Mercedes-Benz throughout the years.
