In line with the Mercedes-Benz brand philosophy, the new M-Class represents the embodiment of the Mercedes-Benz holistic safety concept of Real Life Safety, which is derived primarily from what happens in a real accident situation. The extremely robust occupant compartment of the M-Class, together with the front and rear deformation zones, forms an effective basis for the occupant protection system. With nine airbags including the Kneebag, activated on demand in accordance with the accident type and accident severity, can reduce the loads exerted on the occupants.
Both active safety and driver-fitness safety in the new M-Class are further improved by assistance systems that will already be familiar, primarily from the S- and E-Class. The standard equipment package includes the drowsiness detection system ATTENTION ASSIST, the anticipatory safety system PRE SAFE® and a tyre pressure loss warning system, as well as adaptive brake lights and Brake Assist (BAS).
The new M-Class is further improved by the numerous active and passive assistance systems:
