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 triggers the preventive PRE-SAFE® occupant protection measures, such as the reversible belt tensioners, to secure driver and front passenger more firmly in their seats and prepare them more effectively for an impending crash.

When the vehicle is stationary, PRE-SAFE® PLUS can lock the vehicle's brakes to reduce the extent to which it is jolted forward. This can substantially reduce the degree of stress to which the occupants are exposed, including the risk of so-called whiplash injury.

Only available as part of the Driving Assistance package.
