Safety

In our Mercedes-Benz motorcoaches, we drive the highest safety standards. Onboard the new Tourrider coach, a multitude of proven and upgraded safety and assistance systems guarantee drivers, passengers and other road users optimum protection. Additional protection is provided by the robust stainless steel body with integrated Front Collision Guard and energy-absorbing bumpers.

Mercedes-Benz coaches have always been leading innovators in the field of safety: In the 1970s, Mercedes-Benz was the world’s first manufacturer to present a bus with an anti-lock braking system (ABS). In the new Tourrider coach, the driver can depend on the support of numerous safety and assistance systems. Proven and newly developed systems such as Active Brake Assist 5, the ESP stability program, or the 360° camera underpin the Mercedes-Benz brand’s uncompromising commitment to safety and ensure a feeling of confidence and security for drivers, passengers, and other road users.

The 360° camera system consists of four cameras that capture the immediate vehicle environment and generate an indirect all-round view (Top View 360°). The associated 10" screen is located on the A-pillar above the cockpit. This system allows pedestrians, cyclists and obstacles to be seen even in areas that are otherwise not visible to the driver. In this way, the system increases road safety, as collision hazards can be detected and, at best, prevented.

ABA 5 supports the driver in an imminent collision with stationary objects, moving objects and moving pedestrians. If a collision is imminent, the ABA 5 can carry out automatic emergency braking within the system limits. The system can thus reduce or, in ideal conditions, completely prevent accidents.

Sideguard Assist is a safety assistance system that supports the driver in critical cornering situations where visibility may be limited. When turning or changing lanes, the system is designed to help avoid critical situations within the system boundaries or reduce the consequences of accidents.

The high beam assistant automatically switches the high beam on or off depending on traffic, so that optimum illumination of the road is always ensured. In this way, it contributes to greater safety through improved lighting conditions and optimized illumination, and increases driving comfort and safety.

The rain sensor and automatic headlights are assistance systems that activate automated functions by means of a sensor system and relieve the driver of routine tasks.

The Electronic Stability Program (ESP®) significantly reduces the risk of the vehicle skidding and overturning by counteracting the vehicle’s breakaway or overturning through targeted braking of individual wheels or by fully braking the vehicle.

With the aid of a camera system behind the windshield, the Lane Departure Warning system detects when the vehicle unintentionally leaves a marked lane. As soon as the vehicle crosses the markings, the driver is warned by a clear vibration on the corresponding side of the driver's seat.

By constantly comparing the data, the Brake Assist system immediately detects if the speed at which the brake pedal is pressed suddenly exceeds the usual level, and in such situations automatically provides more braking force within fractions of a second than corresponds to the brake pedal position. This significantly shortens the stopping distance of the coach.
