Mercedes-Benz vehicles are filled with advanced safety features that help give Newport Beach drivers peace of mind, including Mercedes-Benz Brake Assist. How does Mercedes-Benz Brake Assist work exactly? The experts at Fletcher Jones Motorcars explain the functionality of this beneficial feature below.

What is Mercedes-Benz Brake Assist?

The Mercedes-Benz Brake Assist System (BAS®) is an autonomous emergency braking system that senses when another vehicle or pedestrian is too close to the front of your vehicle relative to your speed; Brake Assist can help with braking or perform emergency braking when the driver fails to step on the brakes in time.

How Does Mercedes-Benz Brake Assist Work?

The system uses sensors that scan the area in front of your Mercedes-Benz vehicle. The sensors are capable of scanning a range of up to 200 meters ahead and three lanes wide. Additionally, the Brake Assist system has an 80-degree range of vision when scanning distances of 30 meters or less. With this optimal range of vision, Mercedes-Benz Brake Assist enhances braking when you step on the brake, and the Emergency Brake Assist will activate if the system doesn’t detect any braking by the driver.
