PRE-SAFE® PLUS*

Extra protection in the event of an impending rear-end collision.

If a rear-end collision threatens, the PRE-SAFE® PLUS system is able to initiate preventive occupant protection measures.

These functions make a key contribution to easing the stress of driving, particularly on long journeys and in stop-and-go traffic. The radar-based system brakes the vehicle where necessary and then accelerates it again up to the desired speed whenever possible. This reduces the risk of a rear-end collision.

Watch again

If the danger of a rear-end collision is detected, PRE-SAFE® PLUS flashes the rear hazard warning lights at a high frequency to warn the driver following behind. If the vehicle is stationary, the brake pressure can be actively increased to reduce the impact on the occupants in a collision.

Other preventive functions include reversible belt tensioning for the driver and front passenger to secure them in place and prepare them more effectively for an impending crash.

Only available as part of the Driving Assistance package Plus*.
