On board the Econic as standard equipment: State-of-the-art Mercedes-Benz safety systems. The powerful Active Brake Assist emergency braking system, for example, can initiate a braking intervention if needed, thus minimising the danger of a rear-end collision with vehicles travelling ahead. Two radar sensors additionally monitor the near-range lateral sectors at speeds of up to 10 km/h to support the driver actively, while the Lane Keeping Assist function reacts with a warning tone in the event of unintentional drifting out of the lane.

In addition, a vehicle interface provides the possibility to integrate rear-area monitoring assistance systems, and thus to intervene with a full brake application in risky situations.

Optionally available, too, is a Blind Spot camera system. It provides optimum visibility in every handling situation by displaying fully the blind spot sectors adapted to the current driving situation.
