Safety - at the heart of all our thinking

The Integrated Safety Concept from Mercedes-Benz

Safe driving

During an accident

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.

Overview of measures for a quick rescue:

  • Maximum possible protection: The engine can be turned off automatically, the doors automatically unlocked and the fuel supply can be cut off.
  • Eye-catching lighting: hazard and emergency interior lights can activate automatically to lower the risk of accidents and help locate the car.
  • Facilitating rescue: integral crash joints between the wing and the door are intended to make opening the doors after a frontal collision easier.
