It went on to score 74 per cent for protection of Vulnerable Road Users and 84 per cent for Safety Assist.

Mercedes-Benz also demonstrated that the safety levels will be similar to occupants of different sizes and sitting in different positions inside the car. Furthermore, all critical body areas of the passenger dummy received good protection.

The new GLC also showed good protection for all critical body areas in the full-width rigid barrier test for the driver and rear passenger. The side barrier test echoed similar results with the SUV scoring maximum points here. However, protection to the chest was rated weak in the pole test, while the control of excursion, the extent to which the body is thrown to the other side, was deemed adequate. The new-generation GLC gets a countermeasure to mitigate injuries caused by impacts between occupants. The SUV also performed well with respect to whiplash injuries, while the model also comes with a ‘Post-Collision Brake’ system that applies brakes to prevent secondary collisions.

With respect to Child Occupant Protection, the 2023 GLC provided adequate protection to all critical body areas on the child dummies. The SUV also automatically disabled the front passenger airbag with a rearward-facing child restraint system placed in the seating position and worked “robustly." For vulnerable road users, the model showed good protection to pedestrians’ legs but protection of the pelvis was almost completely poor. Protection to the head was mixed, Euro NCAP observed. The autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system worked well in tests of its reaction to other vehicles.

The previous generation GLC landed itself in a soup this year with the untimely death of Shapoorji Pallonji scion Cyrus Mistry, who was being driven in one of such examples. The older model also received a five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP in 2015 and had a rather impressive score of 95 per cent in Adult Occupant Protection and 89 per cent in Child Occupant Protection.
