Safety at Mercedes-Benz does not only consist of individual measures, however; behind them lies a comprehensive integral safety concept. The claim associated with this is clearly formulated: the premium brand wants to fulfil the highest safety requirements and drives the development towards this across all areas. The integral safety concept is made up of several building blocks. At the centre is a variety of innovative safety equipment specific to the vehicle and use, with the aim of continuously increasing active and passive safety. This includes, for instance, safe driving, deployment in case of danger, the mitigation of the results of an accident and the provision of guidelines for emergency services.
