What is Car-to-X Technology?

First introduced in the 2017 model year, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz E-Class continues to offer the exclusive Car-to-X technology found only through Mercedes-Benz luxury vehicles. This unique feature utilizes wireless communication technology to locate and talk to other vehicles and traffic infrastructure also equipped with the technology.

These communicating devices then create a web of information that can alert you to potential hazards long before you encounter them on the road. You can be alerted to any type of hazard programmed into the system, from wrong-way drivers to emergency vehicles. Given how the wireless network operates, you can receive warnings about upcoming dangers for miles before you encounter them, giving you ample time to reroute your 2020 E-Class or to pay closer attention to potential dangers.

The Advantage of PRESAFE® Sound

Many drivers may not realize that a significant car crash can cause damage to hearing, including the potential for hearing loss. Depending on the nature of the accident, the immediate and sharp noise from the crash can be loud enough to damage your eardrums either temporarily or permanently. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz E-Class offers technology to protect your ears through its PRESAFE® Sound technology.

Included in every 2020 Mercedes-Benz E-Class model, PRESAFE® Sound engages when your Mercedes-Benz E-Class detects that a crash may be imminent. Your vehicle will emit an 80-decibel “pink sound” — or “pink noise” — that will trigger a protective reflex inside your eardrum. As a result, any potential damage to your eardrums from the sound of the crash will be significantly minimized.

Safety Through PRESAFE® Impulse Side

Similar to the PRESAFE® Sound technology, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz E-Class offers a safety measure called PRESAFE® Impulse Side. If your vehicle’s on-board sensors detect that a side crash is imminent, your vehicle will move your seat away from the side and toward the center of the vehicle. The vehicle also delivers impulses to the driver and other occupants to help reduce the force of the impact. These actions lessen damage to the occupant’s body, especially the rib cage.

Avoid Crashes with Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC®

Cruise control helps reduce stress on the driver during long road trips. But until recently, cruise control only operated by maintaining a single speed. With the 2020 Mercedes-Benz E-Class, however, you can engage cruise control to intelligently brake and accelerate based on the distance to other drivers and to maintain your position within a single lane. This is accomplished through the Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC® technology available in the Mercedes Benz.

By using an array of radar sensors and cameras, your 2020 Mercedes-Benz E-Class can operate with an exceptional level of safety while in cruise control.
