Top marks in Euro NCAP Test: Mercedes-Benz X-Class awarded five stars for safety
30th November Melbourne 2017. With five stars, the new X-Class has been awarded the highest possible score in the independent safety test “Euro NCAP Test”. The Mercedes-Benz ute impressed in the categories of occupant safety, child safety, pedestrian protection and assistance systems.
The X-Class owes this result above all to its especially sturdy body with high-strength passenger cell and a structure with front and rear ends capable of absorbing energy through selective deformation as well as with an exceptionally large number of safety systems for the ute segment. The X-Class comes as standard with, for example, seven airbags and the i-Size attachment system for two child seats. The other safety highlights include Active Brake Assist and Lane Keeping Assist. Added to these are the trailer stability program, tyre pressure monitoring, front and rear disc brakes and cruise control. Also as standard, the X-Class POWER comes with a 360-degree camera and the PURE and PROGRESSIVE are equipped with a reversing camera.
