In the most recent round of the Euro NCAP tests, the Mercedes-Benz G-class (G-Wagon) has achieved the maximum safety rating of five stars. Having tested the model in G 350d, G 500, and G 63 variants, and in both, left- and right-hand drive configuration, G-class scored 90 percent for adult occupant protection, 83 percent in child occupant safety, and 72 percent in vehicle safety assists.
The SUV tested was equipped Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) as standard as well as a speed alert/limiting system. The speed alert/ limiting system is set to become standard on all cars in Europe, in the future. Other safety equipment on the G-class includes front, side and knee airbags, seat belt pretensioners, a lane assist system and ABS.
Mercedes had brought the G-class to India first in 2013. At the beginning of October last year, the brand launched the latest Mercedes G-class in a sole AMG-powered and range-topping G 63 variant, in India.
