What is the PRE-SAFE® System?

When it comes to safety, no one does quite as much as Mercedes-Benz. The 2017 E-Class comes standard with the industry-first PRE-SAFE system. If the sensors detect a potential collision, the system will alert the driver, tighten seat belt pretensioners, adjust the front headrests and close all windows and sunroof all in an effort to better brace the passengers for what’s to come. If a crash doesn’t take place, everything will automatically return to normal.

Choosing the right sedan for you doesn’t have to be difficult. There’s so much more to see though, so get in touch with the team at World Wide Motors today to set up a test drive and find out if the 2017 E-Class is right for you!
