How Does the Mercedes-Benz COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS Feature Work?
Safety runs rampant in these parts. Anyone familiar with Mercedes-Benz will tell you that. There’s nothing that gives drivers more peace of mind than active safety features that are designed to keep drivers from getting in an accident in the first place. Welcome the Mercedes-Benz COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS feature to the table.
What is COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS?
It’s amazing how some vehicles have the capability to go the distance with some features. With COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS, you can rest assured you’re protected. The system uses radar-based technology to alert you if there is a vehicle or some other stationary object ahead moving at a speed that will likely require hard braking to avoid a crash. Once you start braking, the system will then provide the necessary amount of brake force to avoid the collision. If you don’t brake, COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS will brake for you as long as you’re moving at a speed of 65 mph or less. It will also then activate the PRE-SAFE® safety feature for further safety.
Because this is such an advanced feature, not all automakers offer features like this one. It is available in the C-Class, so car buyers interested in the C-Class will have this extra little feature to be excited about. Couple this feature with others like PRE-SAFE®, ATTENTION ASSIST® and others and you’re left with one of the safest vehicles on the planet.
