The integral safety concept from Mercedes-Benz represents a forward-thinking, holistic approach to safety.
Being comfortable in the car can help to reduce driver stress. In addition, a variety of assistance systems are constantly monitoring the driving situation and will warn or help the driver the moment certain dangers are identified. Protective measures such as reversible belt tensioners can be activated as a precaution. And should the worst come to the worst, the level of occupant protection afforded is fully in keeping with the severity of the accident, e.g. thanks to selectively deployed airbags. And even after the accident, the system takes targeted steps to prevent the situation from becoming worse. For example, after an accident is recognised, the hazard warning lights are automatically activated to reduce the probability of secondary accidents.
