Unmatched Safety

It’s definitely reassuring to know that both of these vehicles have a five-star safety rating from the NHTSA. So how can you measure which is better? When it comes to innovating safety, few do it like Mercedes-Benz. Take the ATTENTION ASSIST® feature for example. An industry first created by Mercedes-Benz, it keeps an eye on the driver to ensure they’re awake and aware during their journey. If the system’s sensors detect drowsiness on the part of the driver, it will alert the driver to pull over. Luxury isn’t complete without the safety to keep you in one piece on the road.
