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 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 initiates the preventive PRE-SAFE® occupant protection measures, such as the reversible belt tensioners, for example, to hold driver and front passenger in place and prepare them better for the event of a crash.

If the vehicle is stationary, PRE-SAFE® PLUS can lock the brakes in a collision and thereby reduce the forward jerk. This can also help to considerably reduce the load on the occupants, including the risk of the so-called whiplash trauma.

Only available as part of the Driving Assistance package or Driving Assistance package Plus.
