Technology – our research for your safety

The basic principle for all efforts towards more personal security is integral protection. Perfectly hidden under an outer layer that is identical to its series-production counterpart, each Mercedes-Benz Guard comes equipped ex factory with a dense network of many protective components. That is how an autonomous vehicle is created from the ground up – capable of withstanding special and extreme stresses.
