Mercedes-Benz G-Class Five Star Safety Rating From Euro NCAP

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class is the latest in the list of the few vehicles that have ever received a 5-star rating from the Euro NCAP tests. A 5-star rating from the Euro NCAP gives a car and its manufacturer bragging rights as it is the highest degree of safety that a car can have.

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class was recently put through various crash tests and safety checks before being given the 5-star rating. The Mercedes-benz G-Class is a legendary car with a lot of history behind it.

It is infamous for having almost the same design outline as its first-generation model that was launched 40 years ago. Despite still having a boxy figure and old-school design traits, the G-Class has secured a 5-star rating and that, is a commendable feat.
