Merc tops safety ratings

The Mercedes M-class has won the top crash safety rating with five stars from the respected Euro NCAP testing agency. The M-class is equipped with six airbags, belt tighteners, belt force limiters and crash-responsive NECK-PRO headrests.

Mercedes’ PRE-SAFE passenger protection system uses the driver’s braking and steering behaviour to recognise critical situations and can then deploy preventive safety measures before an accident occurs. It activates the reversible belt tighteners, closes the side windows and optional sliding-tilting sunroof and alters the front passenger’s seating position.

If an accident is prevented the belts loosen; however if an accident does occur, the M-class safeguards passengers with its airbags, pyrotechnic belt tighteners (for the front and outer rear seats) and belt force limiters (for the front and outer rear seats) that protect occupants, in combination with the robust passenger cell.
