Preparing for Collisions with PRE-SAFE®

You may already know that Mercedes-Benz has innovated many industry-firsts in terms of safety that isn’t offered by other automakers. One of these features is PRE-SAFE®. The cool thing about this feature is that it will prepare the occupants of the GLS for a collision before it happens. Using an intelligent set of sensors, PRE-SAFE® can detect when a crash may be imminent. When it does, the system will close all windows and the sunroof, tighten the front seat belts and adjust the front headrests in an effort to brace the passengers. If nothing happens, everything will return to normal.

You can’t always be prepared for what lies ahead, but the 2017 GLS 450 4MATIC is doing everything it can to anticipate the unknown. Contact World Wide Motors to learn more about this SUV or to see it for yourself!
