Mercedes-Benz has earned the reputation as one of the best luxury vehicle brands you can buy, and there's no argument against that. But is Mercedes Intelligent Drive in Covington LA the best way to stay safe on the road?

Every car maker in business today is highly aware of the importance of safety features in their vehicles, and keeping up with current innovations. As such, the amount of driver assistance safety technologies that are offered to car buyers has skyrocketed in the last few years. No matter how good a driver you are, it doesn't hurt to have added protection.

Several years ago, Mercedes introduced Intelligent Drive as their answer to modern safety precautions while on the road. Mercedes Intelligent Drive in Covington LA is, in essence, the complete suite of drivers' safety features provided in the Mercedes vehicle lineup. And while there is a nice list of available and offered features, they may not be as comprehensive as you'd expect.

Mercedes Intelligent Drive in Covington LA: Luxury Offerings

In the meantime an established true American luxury automaker has been working overtime to surpass the competition and reassert itself as a rival. That manufacturer is Lincoln, the luxury arm of the Ford Motor Company. It's true that Lincoln vehicles used to be little more than Fords with some fancy features added. Notice the words were "used to be," because that's not the case anymore. 
The Lincoln vehicles now offered are the height of luxury and comfort, with the ultimate combination of driver safety technology, an impeccable ride, and beautiful craftsmanship.

Just as Mercedes has Intelligent Drive, Lincoln offers Co-Pilot360™. It too is a collection of some of the most popular driver assist technologies that exist. Lincoln Co-Pilot360™ is available on all 2020 model year vehicles and will certainly be offered on all future vehicles.

  • Automatic emergency braking 
  • Pedestrian detection
  • Lane departure warning 
  • Lane keeping assist
  • Blind spot warning
  • Rear cross traffic warning
Notice that these features are only stock in G- or S-class vehicles. All other Mercedes models offer some of these, but not all, as standard equipment.
