Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupé: safety

Mercedes-Benz Safety

The Integral Safety Concept from Mercedes-Benz divides vehicle safety into four phases:

Phase 1: safe driving

Phase 2: in critical situations

Phase 3: in an accident

Phase 4: after an accident

To reduce consequential damage after an accident and support the work of the rescue services, a number of different actions are initiated, depending on the type and severity of the accident registered by the system:

  • Best possible protection: the engine can be turned off automatically and the fuel supply can be cut off.
  • Conspicuous lighting: the hazard warning lights and emergency interior lights can be automatically activated, so as to reduce the risk of subsequent accidents and to make finding the vehicle easier.
  • Automatic ventilation: if the airbag is deployed the windows are automatically lowered.
  • Easy opening: the doors are automatically unlocked following an accident to make it easier for occupants or rescue workers to open them.
  • Better rescue possibilities: crash joints between the wing and the door can make opening the doors after a frontal collision easier.
  • Helpful connection: in the event of an accident or breakdown the Mercedes-Benz emergency call system (in conjunction with a connected mobile phone) can automatically contact to an emergency call centre.
