Standard safety features...include six airbags, active head restraints

Mercedes-Benz has long been an industry leader in developing and adopting cutting-edge safety features on its vehicles, and the 2010 Mercedes-Benz GLK reaps many of the rewards of Mercedes' decades of work in this department.

Like most new models, the 2010 Mercedes GLK has not yet been crash-tested by either NHTSA or the IIHS, the two major crash-testing authorities in the United States. Stay tuned to TheCarConnection.com for the latest updates on the crash-test ratings of this and other 2010 models.

Despite the fact that it hasn't been crash-tested yet, TheCarConnection.com's editors are comfortable giving the Mercedes-Benz GLK350 high marks in the safety category thanks to its impressive array of safety features. Cars.com reports that "standard safety features include antilock brakes, side-impact airbags for the front seats, side curtain airbags, an electronic stability system and active front head restraints." MyRide.com, meanwhile, observes that the advanced stability and traction systems incorporate "a vast tier of electronic safety nets [that are] always at the ready" when you're driving the 2010 Mercedes-Benz GLK. The 2010 Mercedes GLK's advanced systems are commanded by "a central control center that relies on numerous sensors to anticipate a collision and take appropriate measures before impact occurs," according to MyRide.com.

One feature of the 2010 Mercedes-Benz GLK350 that certainly enhances its overall safety score is the outstanding driver visibility afforded by the upright design. Car and Driver says the 2010 Mercedes-Benz GLK's "upright windows complement the seating position for extremely good outward viewing," while MyRide.com raves about the "excellent outward vision." Motor Trend agrees, pointing out that the "standard twin-sunroof" design helps to "provide spectacular visibility" for both the driver and passengers inside the 2010 Mercedes GLK.

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.
