Mercedes-Benz Vans - A pioneering history of safety firsts

Mercedes-Benz have always led the field when it comes to van safety. They were the first manufacturer to feature driver airbags in vans as standard in 2000. Crosswind Assist followed in 2013, and recently they were the first manufacturer in the world to equip all new vans with Rescue Assist QR codes, giving vital information to emergency services in case of a collision.
