New Mercedes safety system PRE-SAFE collects its fourth award of the year

Praise for PRE-SAFE from the New York World Traffic Symposium

Stuttgart - For the fourth time this year, the PRE-SAFE anticipatory occupant protection system developed by Mercedes-Benz has picked up a notable award. At the New York International Auto Show, the World Traffic Symposium conferred its Traffic Safety Achievement Award on the groundbreaking innovation from Mercedes. This accolade, which enjoys international renown, is presented by the Symposium every year for the development that has contributed most to reducing the number of serious injuries on US roads. PRE-SAFE has already been honoured with the Paul-Pietsch prize by the "auto motor und sport" motoring magazine, the "Europe's No. 1 Car" award for innovation by the "Auto Bild" motoring magazine together with its 13 European sister publications, plus the "Most Sensible Innovation" award presented by a German consumer advice magazine.


PRE-SAFE heralds a new safety philosophy. The system is able to detect an impending collision in advance and then react instantly to provide occupants with an optimum level of protection should a collision actually occur. In autumn 2002, PRE-SAFE received its series-production debut in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
