It keeps its eyes on your world

Available new GUARD 360™ keeps virtual watch on the car when it's parked via the surround cameras. If another car bumps it, it can send you an alert and save images in the car. A built-in dashcam is also available.

All Mercedes me services operate only where cellular and GPS signals are available, which are provided by third parties and not within the control of Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC. Subscriber Agreement is required for service to be active. Some services are only available on select vehicles. Your PIN is required to use certain services. Connection may be limited by cellular signal and other factors. Features may be introduced and updated at varying dates, and may also require a vehicle software update.

The acclaimed "Hey, Mercedes" voice assistant is even smarter, letting you and your passengers speak more naturally and in more languages. And for quiet moments, the touch controls on the steering wheel and large touchscreen are even more intuitive.

It looks into, and out for, your future

Advanced assists are available to help make driving easier and safer, from cruising to changing lanes. Standard Blind Spot Assist can also alert passengers before exiting. Optional Digital Light headlamps can project lane keeping guidance directly on the road.

Some systems are optional. Even the most advanced safety systems may not be sufficient to avoid an accident. It is the driver's responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for system alerts before braking or taking evasive action, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance. See Operator's Manual for system operating speeds and additional information and warnings.
