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.
The G 350d, G 500 and G 63 AMG variants were put through the test and all of them came out with flying colours. In the adult occupant protection test, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class scored 90 percent, while it scored 83 percent for child occupant safety.
The various safety assists which includes electronic and mechanical driving aids were also tested and the G-Class scored 72 percent in this area. Autonomous Emergency Braking is standard equipment on the Mercedes-Benz G-Class and so is speed alert/limiting system.
It also comes with front, side and knee airbags, lane assist system, seatbelt pretensioners and ABS with EBD. In India, only the top-spec G63 AMG is retailed. It is powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine that churns out a maximum power figure of 577bhp at 6,000rpm and a peak torque output of 850Nm between 2,500-3,500rpm.
