EuroNCAP: Mercedes GLC, the safest SUV in its class

2.69K 2

Built like a tank! This is what EuroNCAP said, more or less, about the new Mercedes GLC – billed as the safest car in its segment according to the 2015 test results.

The GLC is not the first Mercedes to be awarded the best-in-class title. Last year, the C-Class scored the same award, topping the D executive sedan segment.

Dominating the “Small Off-Roader” category was not a difficult task for the new GLC, one of the safest cars in Mercedes’ recent history. The GLC already received five Euro NCAP stars in December 2015 for the combined evaluation of occupant safety, child safety, pedestrian protection and assistance systems.

EuroNCAP evaluators were impressed by the effective interaction of active and passive safety systems with the PRE-SAFE® and ATTENTION ASSIST systems awarded two so-called “Advanced Rewards” by Euro NCAP.

Available with a wide selection of intelligent assistance systems from a class above, the GLC is able to combine data from different sensors such as camera and radar. The extensive list of modern driver assistance systems and the extremely stable safety passenger compartment also scored high points for the GLC.
