Three Standard Safety Features You Didn't Know Were Introduced by Mercedes-Benz
Not a lot of people know that some of the safety features that have become standard in most vehicles today were actually Mercedes-Benz innovations. That's because Mercedes-Benz, rather than guarding its secrets, actually licensed its competitors to use the same technology in their vehicles. Whatever brand of vehicle you drive, if it has these features, then you have Mercedes-Benz to thank for it.
Before these came around, seatbelts would often be loosely worn while travelling. Every time the vehicle abruptly stops, the passenger would still slide forward in his seat before, in a way, colliding with the loose seatbelt. This problem is known as "submarining." Fortunately, Mercedes-Benz developed the seatbelt pretensioner, which was introduced in 1981 with its Mercedes W126 S-Class. This new type of seatbelt stays snugly wrapped around you and preemptively tightens in the event of a crash. This prevents you from jerking forward. It also works in tandem with the frontal airbag by holding you right where the airbag will catch you. The use of both a seatbelt and an airbag was a step up from the previous system where the airbag was considered a replacement for the seatbelt.
Electronic stability control
The next time you're making steep turns on a slippery road, you'd be immensely grateful that such computerized technology exists. The electronic stability control (ESC) uses on-board computers to improve your vehicle's handling response each time you encounter difficult driving conditions. It detects each time your vehicle skids or you lose steering control, and works to setting things right by automatically applying brakes to individual wheels or reducing engine power. Mercedes-Benz introduced this technology with the release of their W140 S-Class model in 1995.
In 1996, Mercedes-Benz introduced brake assist (BA or BAS) with its S-Class and SL-Class models. The company's research revealed that 90% of drivers fail to apply enough force on the brake pedal in emergency situations. The brake assist system detects when you're urgently trying to stop the vehicle then automatically gives you maximum braking power. The system measures signs like how quickly you hit the brakes and how quickly you release the gas, to determine an emergency. By 1998, Mercedes-Benz made BA a standard safety feature on all its vehiclesbecoming the first automobile manufacturer to do so. Its competitors were quick to follow suit.
As the world's oldest automotive brand in existence, Mercedes-Benz continues to provide classic style and comfort that are backed by cutting-edge safety.
With its reputation as a manufacturer of premier luxury cars as well as being the world's oldest automotive brand in existence, it's not surprising to find Mercedes-Benz vehicles appearing in so many films. Many find that beneath the classy exterior with the iconic three-pointed star logo, lies a street-racing demon willing to do its own stunts. Here are some of its prominent appearances.
The James Bond films
A different Mercedes-Benz model appears in each of at least eight James Bond movies. Four prominent appearances include:
- On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969) - James Bond tragically loses his new wife at the end of this film when the villains execute a drive-by shooting on a Mercedes-Benz 600.
- The Man with the Golden Gun (1974) - A Mercedes-Benz W115 serves as James Bond's ride.
- For Your Eyes Only (1981) - Emile Locque, an assassin, tries to escape Bond in a Mercedes-Benz 280SE. The attempt proves unsuccessful when he gets shot, loses control of the vehicle, and ends up hanging precariously off the edge of a cliff. Bond then finishes him off by kicking the car off the cliff.
- Octopussy (1983) - Agent 007 steals a black Mercedes 280S from his enemies in a chase that pushes the car to extreme limits. After its wheels are torn off, Bond batters the car some more by driving it along a railway track in pursuit of a train. In the end, it collides head-on with another train and is sent flying into a river. Bond manages to escape the car before the collision.
This crime thriller, directed by John Frankenheimer and starring Robert De Niro and Jean Reno, is famous for having some of the best car chase scenes in the history of film. In the movie, an Audi S8, a BMW M5, a Mercedes-Benz 450SEL 6.9, and many other vehicles, tear through the narrow streets and tunnels of Paris and Nice. The chase scenes were all shot liveno digital special effects were used. As many as 300 stunt drivers were hired. Among these were the Jean-Claude Lagniez, a sports car racing champion, and Jean-Pierre Jarier, a highly-regarded Formula One driver. The expertly-driven Mercedes 6.9 is shown executing drifts and an impressive 270-degree reverse spin.
- The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997) features the newly-launched Mercedes-Benz W163.
- A Mercedes-Benz W211 is used by the agents in Men in Black II (2002). In the film, the car transforms into an advanced, high-speed, flying vehicle.
- A black Mercedes-Benz 600 is in the opening scene of X-Men: The Last Stand (2006).
