Our Favorite 2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Safety Features

Dedicated to Safer Drives

Mercedes-Benz is committed to providing “the best or nothing,” and that includes 2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class safety. It’s not surprising, then, that 2020 C-Class models equipped with available Adaptive Highbeam Assist are rated an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ for 2019.

Here at Mercedes-Benz of Rocklin, we’re excited to learn every aspect of the vehicles we offer to help you find the best fit for your needs. These are some of our favorite features of 2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class safety. The best part? Two of these features—plus a dozen other safety perks and packages—come standard on every C-Class.


When the unavoidable happens, your Mercedes-Benz C-Class helps prepare you for it with the patented PRESAFE® system. In a matter of seconds, PRESAFE® anticipates a collision by using a network of sensors to detect certain vehicle maneuvers. It tightens the front seat belts, adjusts the headrests, and closes the windows and sunroof.

Mercedes-Benz raises the bar further: PRESAFE® even emits a pink noise that triggers the inner ear to protect your hearing from the pressure of an impact. That’s what makes this standard 2020 C-Class safety feature one of our favorites.


Never fear drowsy drifting again with this 2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class safety feature. ATTENTION ASSIST® is the first system of its kind, continuously monitoring up to 70 parameters of driving behavior, including your interaction with the vehicle controls. If it detects signs of drowsiness, such as steering corrections, it automatically alerts you with both visual and audible warnings that encourage you to stop for a rest.

We love this safety system because it even helps detect drivers who begin their trip drowsy with enhanced sensitivity. ATTENTION ASSIST® offers you more useful information on each drive via a dashboard display. Plus, this safety feature comes standard.

Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC®

Ever wish you had an extra set of hands—or feet—in stop-and-go traffic? Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC® acts as just that. This available safety system makes using cruise control in your 2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class safer by keeping a selectable set of car lengths between your C-Class and the vehicle ahead.

The system’s radar-based technology adapts your set speed in response to the flow of traffic. When traffic slows, it automatically reduces your speed and can even come to a complete stop if the vehicle in front of you brakes.

Resume your drive with a simple tap of the accelerator or cruise control resume button, and if the stop is under three seconds, this 2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class safety feature will resume cruise control automatically. Now that’s handy!

Adaptive Highbeam Assist

Being blinded by another vehicle’s high beams certainly isn’t safe for anyone on the road, and this 2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class safety feature helps prevent this hazard.

With its own dedicated camera, Adaptive Highbeam Assist scans the road ahead for the lights of other vehicles. Based on the location of those vehicles, it will adjust the headlamps of your Mercedes-Benz C-Class to give you the most illumination possible while lessening the amount of glare for other drivers.

Why do we love this feature of 2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class safety? Adaptive Highbeam Assist even automatically activates your high beams when its detects no vehicles within range ahead of you.
