Extra protection in the event of an impending rear-end collision.

If a rear-end collision threatens, the PRE-SAFE® PLUS System is able to initiate preventive occupant protection measures.

If a rear-end collision threatens, the PRE-SAFE® PLUS System is able to initiate preventive occupant protection measures.

If the danger of a rear-end collision is detected, PRE-SAFE® PLUS flashes the rear hazard warning lights at a high frequency to warn the driver following behind. It also triggers the preventive occupant protection measures, e.g. the reversible belt tensioners, to fix the driver and front passenger in their seats and better prepare them for an impact.

If the vehicle is stationary, PRE-SAFE® PLUS can hard-brake it during a collision to resist forward impact pressure. This can also considerably help to reduce the risk of so-called whiplash injuries.

Only available in conjunction with the Driving Assistance Package Plus.
