2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class PRE-SAFE system

Having achieved major advances in the field of occupant protection, Mercedes-Benz is focussing more than ever on preventing traffic accidents and reducing accident severity as part of its commitment to road safety. To this end, the E-Class is equipped with tried-and-trusted technology in the shape of ABS, ESP® and Brake Assist as well as around a dozen new or modified driver assistance systems which are specially configured to help prevent frequent causes of accidents such as being too close to the vehicle in front, dangerous lane changes, excessive speed, drowsiness, darkness and lane departure. This combination of safety technologies, which is unique in the world, make the E-Class part of the "thinking" process – a car that is capable of seeing clearly, reacting instinctively and acting autonomously thanks to radar, cameras and sensors.
