ANCAP confirms five-star safety for Mercedes-Benz GLC.
has confirmed that the all-new 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC range will boast a full five-star safety rating.
Coming on the back of the same maximum safety score handed to the new Mercedes-Benz SUV model by Euro NCAP in December, all grades of the new GLC Crossover will boast the maximum ANCAP safety score in Australia and New Zealand.
ANCAP Chief Executive Officer, James Goodwin, said the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLC boasts impressive pedestrian safety technology.
“This shows that we are entering a new era of vehicle safety where the standard inclusion of safety assist technologies such as Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) will help to eliminate or reduce the severity of a crash,”
“With a concerning 7.9% increase in pedestrian fatalities across Australia in 2015 there needs to be a strong focus on vehicle technology to help contribute to reducing this figure,”
“The GLC is a new model to the growing SUV market and buyers in this category now have another choice of vehicle offering excellent safety features including AEB, but we would have hoped that lane keeping assistance would be standard.”
