Explore the Safety Features of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE


Blending Safety and Luxury in a Fine SUV

Since its debut in 2015, the Mercedes-Benz GLE became renowned for its smooth rides, sophisticated design and unrivaled comfort. But what’s also important is the SUV’s dedication to safety — so much so that the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) named the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE a Top Safety Pick+ — the top honor from the company.

When you’re ready to get a taste of refined luxury and first-class German engineering with top safety features, visit Mercedes-Benz of El Dorado Hills to test-drive the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE. Until then, here’s the safety this luxury SUV brings to your drives.

Standard Driver Assists for Your Cruising

Driving safe in the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE feels easy with so many standard driver-assist technologies looking out for you while you cruise local highways and cities.

For avoiding fender benders, Active Brake Assist sends you an alert when a collision with a car or obstruction seems likely. This gives you a chance to merge out of the way or hit the brakes as your GLE increases the brakeforce to help you come to a stop sooner. If you don’t react, your SUV automatically applies the brakes to help you avoid the collision.

During long drives, it’s easy for your mind to wander as you become drowsy from repetitive scenery. Thankfully, your 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE looks out for you by monitoring your driving patterns with ATTENTION ASSIST®, which alerts you when you become drowsy or sleepy. This warning suggests the driver to pull over and take a break to help you wake up and refocus so that you’re refreshed enough to complete your drive.

When you’re cruising US-50 toward Rancho Cordova, knowing when it’s safe to merge can feel tricky — especially during rush hour. Thankfully, your 2020 GLE packs Blind Spot Assist to let you know when other cars are rapidly approaching or are already in your blind spots, which tells you to hold off on switching lanes.

Need to parallel park into a tight space? If so, you can navigate in there like a pro with Active Parking Assist. All you need to do is pull up to the spot. Then, your Mercedes-Benz GLE steers, shifts and brakes for you as it pulls into the curbside space without dents or scuffs.

Available DISTRONIC® for Highway drives

To help you stay safe on long stretches of Highway, available DISTRONIC® makes your drives easy by automatically cruising at a set speed and keeping a preset distance away from traffic ahead. Your SUV will even come to a complete stop when necessary; just tap your gas pedal to continue the ride, while you kick back and enjoy the drive.

Need to change lanes? Active Lane Change allows you to merge with the flick of a signal. Meanwhile, Active Steering Assist keeps you centered in your lane on straight stretches of the highway. It’s nearly an autonomous driving system that allows you to focus on what’s happening ahead while your 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE takes you to your adventures.

Innovative PRE-SAFE® Tech to Keep Everyone Protected

Mercedes-Benz implemented PRE-SAFE® in its SUV to keep you fully protected in the instance of a collision. Before an impact takes place, you’ll feel your seat belts tighten, while all windows and the sunroof close to keep everyone secure. If no accident occurs, the tension on the seatbelts eases, and you can continue with your drive.

PRE-SAFE® Sound also kicks in moments before a collision to emit a ‘pink noise’, which creates a reflex in the ear to shut out loud noises to protect your hearing.
