Mercedes has released a new video of Michael Schumacher testing the safety systems on the 2014 C-Class.

While the clip doesn't reveal too much, the company confirmed the car will be offered with a variety of safety systems including Collision Prevention Assist Plus which can automatically brake the car to prevent or minimize a collision.

The model will also have Pre-Safe Brake, Brake Assist Plus, Active Blind Spot Assist and Active Lane Keeping Assist. Furthermore, Distronic Plus with Steering Assist and Stop&Go Pilot will greatly reduce stress in traffic jams as the system automatically steers the car and keeps pace with traffic.

According to Jochen Hermann, Director of Driver Assistance Systems and Active Safety at Mercedes-Benz, "It is enormously enjoyable to work with Michael Schumacher. He is not only sensationally good at maneuvering cars, he has an extraordinary understanding of technology and driving physics combined with the ability to identify potential solutions precisely and rapidly." He added, "I think this cooperation will bear a great deal of fruit in the future. Our shared aim is more safety for all road users."
