Mercedes-Benz' storied reputation for building safe cars comes from years of innovation and good crash-test scores. The GLK is no different, and like the other Mercedes SUVs, its strength goes beyond its driving capabilities.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) hasn't put the GLK through its tests or through its updated scoring system, but the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has. The IIHS gives it "good" ratings across the board, which makes the GLK a Top Safety Pick again for 2012.

All the customary safety features are included in the GLK package: there are dual front, side and curtain airbags as well as anti-lock brakes, traction and stability control. Active front head restraints are standard, too, 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 GLK has impressive outward visibility—better than most other luxury crossovers.

Conclusion

Mercedes' reputation for safety precedes the GLK, and its crash-test scores are up to the heritage.

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.
