2018 Mercedes-Benz Metris Passenger Van Load-Adaptive Electronic Stability Program (ESP ®)
This next feature is somewhat similar to Crosswind Assist in that it helps keep your vehicle stable and under control. However, it combats more than just wind. It keeps track of tire traction, wheelspin, understeer, and oversteer and balances everything out by giving more or less power to individual wheels.
2018 Mercedes-Benz Metris Passenger Van Attention Assist ®
Fatigued driving is nearly as bad as drunk driving. Tired drivers are the root of many car accidents. Falling asleep at the wheel can put you in a life or death situation, but Attention Assist works to combat this. This feature monitors your normal driving patterns to detect a break in the pattern. It can tell when your driving style is unusual and gives you an alert so you can pull over or switch drivers.
