With a comprehensive list of standard and available safety features, this opulent and secure SUV is a winner for drivers from all around Cook County.

Visibility & Driver Assists

Being alert and keeping your eyes on the road are two of the most important factors for safe driving. Luckily, the new GLC makes it easy to do both! The standard rearview camera gives a clear view as you reverse, while LED Daytime Running Lamps and taillamps keep you visible to others. In addition to these features, there are numerous driver assists monitoring the road to ensure your safety, such as:

  • ATTENTION ASSIST®: The feature monitors 70 parameters of driving behaviors and alerts you if it detects drowsiness.
  • PRESAFE®: Once this system detects a potential collision on the horizon, this system will increase front seatbelt tension, adjust headrests, and close windows and the sunroof for maximum crash protection.
  • PRESAFE® Sound: Working with the PRESAFE® system, this feature emits a “pink noise” when a potential collision is detected. Doing so creates a reaction in the ear that will help protect occupants’ hearing.
  • Blind Spot Assist with Exit Warning Assist: A red triangle will appear on your side mirror if a driver enters your blind spot. In the event you put on your turn signal while the vehicle is there, the system will give you an auditory alert.

Braking

Brake Assist detects emergency braking, and automatically applies the maximum amount of power, but that’s not the only braking feature on the GLC 300. You’ll find a full suite of advanced braking features on the newest iteration of the GLC 300, including:

  • Predictive Brake Priming
  • Automatic Brake Drying
  • Hill-Start Assist
  • Brake HOLD

Available DISTRONIC PLUS® with Steering Assist utilizes radar-based cruise control that adapts to the flow of traffic and can brake your vehicle to a full halt should traffic slow to a stop.

Stability

The Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 is ready to keep you steady! Crosswind Assist works in tandem with the Electronic Stability Program (ESP®) to detect strong winds at highway speeds and uses course-corrective braking to help you stay on track. Available Lane Keeping Assist monitors road markings and alerts you if you begin to sway out of your lane without signaling. If you fail to correct your course, the system can brake individual wheels as necessary to guide you back into place.
