Mercedes Benz was founded in 1871, and is the world's oldest living car company. Mercedes has always been a major player in luxury cars as well as motorsports. Like BMW, Mercedes also uses a clever system in naming their cars. This system is used differently though, as the number represents the actual displacement of the engine and the following letter determines the class. Over the years, Mercedes has introduced many technologies used in many (if not all) cars that help keep people safe. These include:

ABS (Anti-Lock Brake System)


Brake Assist

PreSafe (A system that prepares all safety systems of the car for an iminent crash through a sensor)

Safety Cells complemented by crumple zones

Stability Control

TCS (Traction Control Systems)
