In ANCAP’s latest round of crash test data analysis, the latest Mercedes-Benz GLE and G-Class SUVs happen to be awarded the total five-star rating. Both models impressed with higher occupant protection.
Using Euro NCAP’s crash test data, the local ANCAP division has assessed final results for any GLE and given it 91 per-cent for adult occupant protection, 92 per cent for child occupant protection, 78 per cent for pedestrian protection, and 79 % for the active safety assist systems.
ANCAP highlights your son or daughter occupant protection score in particular, proclaiming that 92 % is a highest ever rating in this field for a passenger car. The scores were classed like a combined Good and Adequate for almost all areas, except protection of the driver’s chest while in the pole test was classed as Marginal. The five-star rated is applicable to the GLE 300d, GLE 450, and GLE 400d.
As for any big beast, the modern G-Class, it, too, received good scores. It turned out given 90 % for adult occupant protection, 85 per-cent for child occupant, 78 per-cent for pedestrian, and 73 percent for active safety assist systems. ANCAP says the SUV offers Good stages of performance in every areas, but chest protection was noted as needing improvement for driver and rear passenger in frontal impacts.
The five-star rating only is true for the G 63 AMG version and never the G-Class Professional because it doesn’t come designed with exactly the same standard of safety systems. The Professional variant is pitched for the market weight loss on the serious, rugged off-road vehicle than just a general commuter car.
In related news, the brand new Tesla Model 3 has been tested by Euro NCAP and has now been awarded five stars. ANCAP says these days it is assessing the crash test data, by using a local score set to become announced soon.
