Low pressure hydraulic and electronic advanced software helps provide even smoother shift. When PRE-SAFE Brake senses an impending collision, the system emits three warning signs. About 1.6 seconds before impact is likely, partial braking is initiated automatically, and the PRE-SAFE occupant protection are enabled.

All E-Class models are equipped with standard PRE-SAFE System - the world's first that can detect and take protective measures before a crash. The innovative PRE-SAFE system first tensions the seatbelts automatically if the car senses an impending collision. PRE-SAFE uses resettable electric tensioners in addition to the existing pyrotechnic pretensioners. Moreover, if the front passenger seat is too reclined or forward, PRE-SAFE automatically moves to a position more favorable accident.

If the vehicle skids (often a precursor to rollover), the system closes the sunroof and side windows. If necessary, the pre-SAFE reacts fishtailing (or oversteer) and "plowing" (or understeer) by means of existing sensors for stability control ESC to measure the steering angle, yaw rate and lateral acceleration of the vehicle. Emergency braking can also trigger PRE-SAFE, which monitors the sensors for the Brake Assist as well.
