we sometimes found the "Lane Keeping Assist" safety option a little too active in nudging us back into our lane when we strayed across the center line
AutoWeek

on offer is Mercedes' Distronic Plus adaptive cruise control system, which will help brake the ML to a stop in panic situations as well as maintain proper distance to leading vehicles
Motor Trend



Safety has been a strong suit for Mercedes-Benz for decades now–with technologies and design going above and beyond federal requirements. The 2014 M-Class is no exception.

The M-Class gets top 'good' ratings in all crash-test categories from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), along with the group's Top Safety Pick+ nod (for models built after August 2013). The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) also gives the M-Class its top five-star rating.

Active safety feature and drivers' aides are what really push the Mercedes-Benz vehicles beyond the competition. Attention Assist, which takes tabs on driving style to help identify the signs of drowsy driving—triggering a coffee-cup icon and some warning beeps—is now a standard feature on all M Class models. Its available Distronic Plus adaptive cruise control is one of the most sophisticated and unobtrusive systems on any vehicle—capable of coming to a full stop with traffic and restarting, and potentially reducing fatigue. Pre-Safe, Lane Keeping Assist, and Blind Spot Assist (all optional) all provide the sort of alerts that might make a split-second difference.

Conclusion

The M-Class has earned the IIHS' Top Safety Pick+ award--Mercedes' first.

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.
