    Traction Control & Stability
    Electronic Stability Program (ESP)
    This safety breakthrough first introduced by Mercedes-Benz continually monitors your driving inputs and the vehicle's motion to help keep it going in your intended direction, especially in corners and during evasive maneuvers. If it detects wheelspin, severe understeer (plowing), or oversteer (fishtailing), ESP® can brake individual wheels and reduce engine power to help bring the vehicle under control.[*4]
  • Brakes, Wheels, and Tires

    Brakes, Wheels, and Tires

    Brakes
    Braking system
    Perforated, slotted and ventilated 15.4-inch front discs with compound rotors and 6-piston calipers. Perforated and ventilated 14.2-inch rear discs with 4-piston fixed-type calipers.[*5]
    Antilock Braking System (ABS)
    ABS senses impending wheel lockup under heavy braking and pumps the front brakes individually or the rear brakes together. This intelligent system can pump the brakes as needed up to 30 times per second, to prevent lockup and preserve the driver's steering ability.[*5]
    Brake Assist (BAS®)
    Brake Assist senses emergency braking via the speed at which the driver presses the brake pedal and immediately applies maximum available power boost. Brake Assist can potentially reduce the overall stopping distance by eliminating the delay caused by a common human tendency not to brake hard enough, soon enough. Letting up on the brake pedal releases Brake Assist.[*5]
    Wheels/Tires
    Wheels
    9.5x19-inch front/11.0x20-inch rear AMG® forged-alloy 10-spoke
    Tires
    265/35R19 front and 295/30R20 rear, high-performance

    Safety Features
    Mercedes-Benz mbrace®
    From your car, your computer or your compatible smartphone, mbrace2™ offers the industry's most comprehensive range of features for more connected, safe and productive drive time. From making your everyday life easier to helping out in an emergency, mbrace2 combines advanced cloud-based and GPS technology with 24-hour support from helpful experts. Three mbrace packages are offered, and every 2014 Mercedes-Benz includes a 6-month mbrace trial subscription.[*9,*10,*11]
    Restraint Systems
    Integrated Restraint System
    An advanced system of 8 air bags includes dual two-stage front air bags, dual side-impact air bags, dual knee air bags, and upward-deploying head air bags.[*6]
    Seat belt technology
    Equipped with Emergency Tensioning Devices (ETDs) and belt force limiters, 3-point seat belts are arguably our most important passive safety feature. If a collision exceeds a preset threshold, the ETDs instantly remove slack from the seat belts. Belt force limiters allow a slight amount of give in the seat belts and reduce the peak seat-belt forces on the occupant.
    Occupant Classification System (OCS)
    OCS automatically turns the passenger's front air bag on or off and adjusts the air bag inflation rate based on the weight category determined by weight sensor readings from the passenger seat.[*7]
    Locking & Security
    SmartKey
    The SmartKey remote control integrates remote door locks and trunk opener, a removable valet key, and a remote panic alarm.
    Locator lighting
    Locator lighting uses the car's lights to help illuminate a return path when the car is remote-unlocked in darkness. Unlocking the car also activates the illuminated entry system.
    Emergency trunk opener
    An emergency release lever is located inside the trunk and illuminated for 60 minutes after the trunk lid is closed.
    Night Security Illumination
    Night security illumination uses the car's exterior lights to help illuminate a path after parking.
