Mercedes-Benz is at the top shelf when it comes to technology of heated car surface. Despite the inclusion of features such as heated door panel and arm rest, heated steering wheel and seat in its top range, yet Mercedes is diverting its attention to the production of heated seatbelt.

Initially, it looks unnecessary but comfort and luxury are all about smaller details of needs you never knew of in the first place. That is not even the idea behind this seatbelt. The automaker is making an attempt to use this technology to seduce car owners across the globe to cultivate the habit of using seatbelt. The idea is not only about massaging your torso stretch or tummy, but safety.
