What is the PRESAFE® 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 PRESAFE® 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.
