“The M-Class has earned the IIHS' Top Safety Pick+ award--Mercedes' first.”
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz M-Class earns top 'good' ratings in all categories of testing from the IIHS—including small overlap—and it gets five-star federal NCAP ratings in all but rollover. Additionally, it's an IIHS 'Superior' frontal crash prevention performer. In addition, you get a host of other safety extras that might just prevent an accident—such as Attention Assist, which takes tabs on your driving style to help identify signs of drowsy driving and if so, flash you a coffee-cup icon. The M-Class is also one of the most widely adjustable vehicles for driving position, so those of all sizes can get comfortable in this model—and that's a big part of staying safe.
