Mercedes-Benz has long been a front-runner with respect to safety, and it hasn't yielded any ground with the GLK350, which benefits from decades of work in this department.

While the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class hasn't been tested—and probably won't—by the federal government, it's earned excellent ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)—including top 'good' ratings in all subcategories, an overall 'good' rating, and a Top Safety Pick accolade for 2011.

There are no major safety features missing in the 2011 GLK350. Front side airbags, side-curtain bags, anti-lock brakes, electronic stability control, and active front head restraints are all included, and the GLK has emergency systems that will automatically contact emergency dispatch if you're in a severe crash.

Thanks to the relatively high seating position and low shoulder line, the Mercedes-Benz GLK350 has impressive outward visibility—better than most other luxury crossovers.

Conclusion

Those in the 2011 Mercedes-Benz GLK350 will feel safe and secure—and rightly so, given current safety information and the brand’s reputation for occupant protection.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
