Mercedes-Benz C-Class Owners Manual: PRE-SAFE system

PRE-SAFE (anticipatory occupant protection)

PRE-SAFE is able to detect certain critical driving situations and implement pre-emptive measures to protect the vehicle occupants.

PRE-SAFE can implement the following measures independently of each other:

  • Tightening the seat belts on the driver's seat and front passenger seat.
  • Closing the side windows.
  • Vehicles with sliding sunroof: Closing the sliding sunroof.
  • Vehicles with memory function: Moving the front passenger seat to a more favorable seat position.
  • Vehicles with multicontour seat: Increasing the air pressure in the seat side bolsters of the seat backrest.
  • PRE-SAFE Sound: provided that the multimedia system is switched on, generates a brief noise signal to stimulate the innate protective mechanism of a person's hearing.
NOTE Damage caused by objects in the footwell or behind the seat
The automatic adjustment of the seat position may result in damage to the seat and/or the object.
  • Stow objects in a suitable place.

Reversing the PRE-SAFE system measures

If an accident did not occur, the pre-emptive measures that were taken are reversed.

You will need to perform certain settings yourself.

  • If the seat belt pre-tensioning is not reduced, move the seat backrest back slightly.

    The locking mechanism releases.

Function of PRE-SAFE PLUS (anticipatory occupant protection plus)

PRE-SAFE PLUS can detect certain impacts, particularly an imminent rear impact, and take pre-emptive measures to protect the vehicle occupants. These measures cannot necessarily prevent an imminent impact.

PRE-SAFE PLUS can implement the following measures independently of each other:

  • Tightening the seat belts on the driver's seat and front passenger seat.
  • Increasing brake pressure when the vehicle is stationary. This brake application is canceled automatically when the vehicle pulls away.

If an accident did not occur, the pre-emptive measures that were taken are reversed.
