Safety in the 2018 GLC 300

Mercedes-Benz is known as one of the safest automakers in the industry, and the 2018 GLC 300 is no different. It comes equipped with industry firsts such as PRESAFE® and ATTENTION ASSIST®. PRESAFE® is a technology that works by detecting potential accidents. When it senses a collision may be about to occur, it will adjust the front headrests and seatbelt pretensioners as well as close all the windows and sunroof. This is all an effort to brace the passengers for the crash that may occur. If nothing happens, everything will return to normal. With ATTENTION ASSIST®, a series of sensors can detect driver behavior. When the system detects drowsiness on the part of the driver, it will issue an audible and visual alert to wake them up. It can even direct the driver to the nearest rest area. These along with other safety features ensure drivers and passengers are safe behind the wheel.
