Mercedes-Benz Leads Luxury Brands with 4 IIHS Top Safety Picks in 2019
When it comes to safety, “The Best or Nothing” certainly applies to the 2019 Mercedes-Benz lineup. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awarded three models – the GLE SUV, GLC SUV and E-Class Sedan – with its highest distinction, naming each a “Top Safety Pick+.” The C-Class Sedan was also named a “Top Safety Pick,” giving Mercedes-Benz a total of four honorees, the most of any luxury brand.
The qualifications to win the award are getting more difficult every year. Vehicles must display strong crash-test performance, as well as high-quality headlights and collision avoidance systems. Learn more about this year’s criteria and other honorees.
