Mercedes-Benz makes Sindelfingen one of the safest places in the world. In the presence of Baden-Württemberg's Prime Minister Winfried Kretschmann, Mercedes-Benz today opened the world's crashtest center in Sindelfingen with the crash of an E-Class sedan. The new Vehicle Safety (TFS) technology center offers entirely new possibilities, for example in vehicle vehicle tests, in the design of assistance systems and PRE-SAFE®, and in securing vehicle concepts with alternative drives.

► Mercedes-Benz Safety Features
No matter what Mercedes-Benz you're driving, you can always have confidence that it will be backed by some of the most reliable safety features in the industry. The Mercedes-Benz brand has a strong reputation for constructing their vehicles in a way that will dramatically lessen the chances of an accident. Let's take a look at some of the most notable Mercedes-Benz safety features available.
► Pre-Safe Technology
Mercedes-Benz's signature Pre-Safe technology will help warn drivers whenever there's an imminent accident. This technology will also help prepare the vehicle for the collision by tightening seatbelts, closing the sunroof and windows, and even adjust front head restraints. When driving through the Carolinas there's no better way to be and feel safer than driving a vehicle with Mercedes-Benz safety features.

Mercedes-Benz takes pride in offering some of the most notable safety features in the industry. This is why they've launched their accident investigation program - to help them determine what the most likely scenario for an accident might be so that they can develop technology to prevent it. They calculate collision angles, impact speed, and collect much more data to help improve their groundbreaking technology, which includes Pre-Safe, Attention Assist, and many others.
