Make yourself infallible and dominate the roads like no other. The M-Guard gives you the power to take charge of your world whilst providing outstanding protection for you. The mere fact that you sit higher up ensures a better view of the surroundings in any situation. No matter which road you take, experience total freedom without any sense of restriction. With its integrated protective components it meets all the requirements of Resistance Level VR4, which covers handguns up to the .44 Magnum. Your M-Guard therefore, remains a safe place to be regardless of the state of the road, and whether you are driving on or oﬀ-road, the 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive delivers outstanding traction and exemplary handling. Think yourself safe!
One special feature of the M-Guard is the fact that the special-protection vehicle manages to conceal much of what lies within in. This discretion and inconspicuousness is a key factor for your protection, and also ensures that you don’t have to compromise when it comes to comfort, space or driving enjoyment. This is achieved not by some secret method but, moreover, by applying a unique principle: protective elements are designed as integral component parts during the vehicle development stage and installed beneath the standard-production M-Class outer skin. Uncompromising quality during production and development coupled with outstanding innovation and technology result in highly eﬀective protection.
