Safety - at the heart of all our thinking.

The Integral Safety Concept from Mercedes-Benz divides vehicle safety into four phases:

Phase 1: safe driving.

Phase 2: in critical situations.

Phase 3: in an accident.

Phase 4: after an accident.

To reduce consequential damage after an accident and support the work of the rescue services, a number of different actions are initiated, depending on the type and severity of the accident. Assisting emergency services after an accident is an important part of the safety philosophy of Mercedes-Benz.

  • The best possible protection: the engine can be turned off automatically and the fuel supply can be cut off.
  • Eye-catching lighting: hazard and emergency interior lights can be activated automatically to lower the risk of subsequent accidents and help rescue services locate the car.
  • Making escape easier: the door locking mechanism can be automatically released.
  • Helpful connection: In the event of an accident or breakdown, the Mercedes-Benz emergency call system (standard with Audio USB 20 and up) can automatically establish contact with an emergency call centre.
