Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. BMW 3 Series: Innovative Safety Features

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the BMW 3 Series both come standard with a system that prepares the vehicle for imminent collisions. When they sense an incoming impact, they can begin closing the windows, tightening the safety belts, and activate post-crash braking.

The available PRESAFE® PLUS system of the 2020 C-Class takes this protection to another level by also sensing potential collisions from behind. When it does, it flashes the rear hazard lights at a high frequency and prepares the restraint system for a rear-end impact.

They also both offer an adaptive cruise control system, which can help adjust your speed based on the distance between you and the car ahead. It’ll help make your daily commute even easier to handle!
