Top marks in Euro NCAP Test: Mercedes-Benz X-Class awarded five stars for safety
Stuttgart. 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 pickup 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 mid-size pickup 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, Lane Keeping Assist and Traffic Sign Assist. Added to these are the trailer stability program, tyre pressure monitoring, emergency call system, cruise control and LED headlamps. In addition, a reversing camera and a 360-degree camera are optionally available.
Prices for the X-Class in Germany start at 37,294 euros (incl. 19 percent VAT). It has been on the market since November.
