Arguably our most important passive safety feature, all four outboard 3-point seat belts are equipped with Emergency Tensioning Devices (ETDs) and belt force limiters. If a collision exceeds a preset threshold, ETDs instantly remove slack from the seat belts. Belt force limiters allow a slight amount of give in the seat belts, to reduce the peak seat-belt forces on the occupant.
A system of interconnected elements work together to help protect the occupants in a collision. High-strength/low-alloy (HSLA) and ultra-high-strength steel are used in critical areas such as the roof pillars, floor and roof crossmembers, door beams and various reinforcements throughout the body. Advanced front and rear crumple zones deform progressively to help absorb the energy of an impact, while the front bulkhead helps channel some impact forces under, over, and around the cabin.
If an air bag deploys, your car can automatically initiate a call to Mercedes-Benz Emergency Services, transmitting your GPS-determined location and helpful vehicle information on your behalf. Trained experts are on call 24/7 to help summon local emergency responders to your location.

This vital service is provided for as long as you own the vehicle, no matter who's driving.
Radar-based technology alerts you if you're approaching a vehicle ahead, or even some stationary objects, at a speed and distance that suggest a collision is likely. As soon as the driver starts to brake, Active Brake Assist can automatically provide an appropriate level of braking to help prevent a collision or reduce its severity. If you fail to respond, the system can also initiate braking automatically from speeds up to 65 mph.
