PRESAFE®

You’ll find many similar features in these two vehicles, but one you won’t find in the Range Rover is PRESAFE®. This feature, an industry-first that is only offered in Mercedes-Benz vehicles, offers safety in a way that others don’t. When the system detects a collision may be imminent (such as when you hit a patch of ice or apply the brakes suddenly), PRESAFE® will tighten the front seat belts, adjusts front head restraints and passenger seat and close all windows and the sunroof in order to brace the passengers should a crash occur. You can’t always prevent accidents from happening, but the measures being taken by Mercedes-Benz such as the PRESAFE® feature just goes to show how safe this vehicle is.
