For more safety.
The official figures show that the number of serious rear-end collisions with Mercedes-Benz B-Class vehicles has gone down by 14 percent in Germany by comparison with the predecessor model. Since its market launch in 2011, the present B-Class has been equipped with COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST as standard. This safety system includes a radar-based, visual distance warning signal, an additional audible collision warning and selective brake boost courtesy of Adaptive Brake Assist. It is standard equipment for all vehicles in the new generation of compact cars (A-Class, B-Class, CLA-Class and GLA-Class), as well as many other vehicles from Mercedes-Benz.
Prof Dr Thomas Weber, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG responsible for Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars Development: “The decrease in the number of accidents provides further confirmation of our ‘real life safety’ strategy. We are bringing innovations into the car that genuinely benefit customers and road safety.”
