All trims and versions of the 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class include the following active safety systems: Active Brake Assist with Cross Traffic Function and Active Blind Spot Assist.
Some advanced safety features --- while not cutting edge --- can still improve vehicle safety. Standard Adaptive Highbeam Assist automatically switches high beam headlights off when oncoming traffic is approaching and turns them back on when there aren't any vehicles ahead. Standard side mirror turn signals alert others of your intention to turn or switch lanes allowing them to react accordingly, which can prevent accidents caused by not seeing a vehicle in the blind spot.
