Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive stands for innovative driving assistance and safety systems. With them the V-Class achieves a high level of driving comfort and an exemplary safety level. The highlight is the optional Driving Assistance package, the 4 assistance and safety systems combined. They help the driver to maintain a minimum distance from the vehicle in front, to be aware of vehicles in the driver's blind spot and not inadvertently stray from the lane the vehicle is travelling in. In critical situations they can help to prevent accidents or at least lessen their impact. Furthermore, the Lane Tracking package is available with the Blind Spot Assist and Lane Keeping Assist components.
