Achieve your goals. Safely.
Crosswind Assist now as standard.
The new Vito comes with Crosswind Assist as standard, which is able to compensate nearly fully for strong wind gusts and helps to prevent you from drifting out of your lane in strong crosswinds, on bridges or when overtaking trucks, for example. The effect of the wind is considerably reduced. Crosswind Assist builds on the standard electronic stability program (ESP) and is activated from a speed of 80 km/h.
The new Vito – enhances your field of view.
The Blind Spot Assist helps when changing lanes on multi-lane highways and therefore supports the driver in avoiding accidents. It helps the driver to be aware of vehicles in the blind spot in good time by giving out visual and acoustic warning signals. If the system registers a vehicle in this area, a red warning triangle is displayed in the appropriate exterior mirror.
Unique in its class: optional COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST.
This optional assistant system constantly monitors the distance between your van and the vehicle in front, outputs an audible and visible warning before a potential collision and automatically boosts the braking power in the event of danger, helping you to avoid rear-end collisions. So it combines a distance and collision warning with BAS PRO.
Safety first. With up to eight airbags on the new Vito Tourer.
As usual, Mercedes-Benz also sets a good example when it comes to protecting all of the vehicle’s occupants – with up to six airbags, including optional window bags and thorax/pelvis side bags for the driver and co-driver. The new Vito Tourer still enhances this safety level and can be regarded as the new benchmark in this regard with its maximum eight airbags for the driver and passengers.
Manoeuvres have never been so easy and safe with a van.
Safety is also called for during manoeuvres. The reverse warning alarm audibly warns passers if the Vito is moving backwards. A reversing camera helps the driver perform the manoeuvre. Lines on the audio system's display show the likely vehicle position given the current steering angle. With the coupling zoom function, the camera zooms in on the ball head of the trailer coupling and assists the driver when a trailer is hitched up by displaying special extension lines.
Attention Assist: safety not only for you and your passengers but also for other road users.
The new Vito's standard equipment also includes Attention Assist. Based on various parameters, it draws conclusions as to the driver's condition. More than 70 different measured variables are processed for this purpose. If Attention Assist detects signs of increasing inattention or drowsiness, the driver is warned acoustically and by a symbol on the instrument cluster to take a break.
