Connected and electrified cars have made the show in Paris during two weeks, but new models displayed at the "Mondial de l'Automobile" had also some impressive safety features.
If you consider for instance the new A-Class from Mercedes, this car offers numerous driving assistance systems, from drowsiness detection with Attention Assist to proximity control with Distronic Plus. These assistance systems, which until now were reserved for higher vehicle segments, are based on state-of-the-art radar, camera and sensor technology.
