Mercedes-Benz Vito Blind Spot Assist

As a final ‘hurrah’ to the fast-fading 2021, Mercedes-Benz Vans has added Blind Spot Assist to the safety features on Vito models.

The Vito underwent a facelift earlier in the year when several driver and safety assistance systems were added to the specification – Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC, Active Brake Assist and a digital inside rear-view mirror – among them.

The Blind Spot Assist feature provides an extra pair of eyes, which help drivers to safely navigate a lane-change and to avoid accidents. With the Vito’s Blind Spot Assist, drivers receive an audio and visual warning when there is a vehicle or obstruction in their blind spot. Warning signals and a red triangle appear on the exterior mirror, allowing time to avoid a collision or accident.

Blind Spot Assist is just one of the safety enhancements the Vito offers. The Vito Facelift has an extensive range of safety assistance systems, continuing the tradition of redefining safety standards in its segment. The Vito Panel Van was the first van to be equipped as standard with airbags and seat belt reminders for both the driver and co-driver. And with Crosswind Assist and ATTENTION ASSIST among the standard equipment six years ago, the Vito already redefined safety standards in this segment.

The Vito was first introduced in 1996 – seems like yesterday – and has sold more than 1,8-million examples worldwide.

“We chose to use Mercedes-Benz Vitos as they are reliable vehicles for our funeral undertaking business, which is built on a reputation of being reliable. We particularly noticed just how durable it is, allowing us to access the most difficult terrain as we assist our clients during their time of loss. Even more impressive is how fuel efficient the Vito is, especially as the price of fuel keeps increasing,” says Muzi Mkhize, owner of Khayelihle Funerals, based in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal.

“Running such a durable van is not only an advantage for us as a business, but for our clients as well. We have a number of clients who use our services only because they know they can trust the Mercedes-Benz Vito when they need it most,” he concludes.
