The Redesigned 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE Wins IIHS Top Safety Pick+ Award!

October 28th, 2019 by

Mercedes-Benz has always known to provide the best of the best. After all, their mantra is “The Best or Nothing”. They have also been a pioneer in safety technology for many years. Therefore, it is not surprise that the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE has earned a TOP SAFETY PICK+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety!

To qualify for a 2019 TOP SAFETY PICK+ award, a vehicle must earn good ratings in the driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests. It also needs an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention and a good headlight rating. The redesigned GLE earned good ratings in all six of the crash evaluation, which is the highest safety award a vehicle can earn.

This Mercedes-Benz SUV is equipped with a standard front crash prevention system and is also available with an optional system. Both systems also earn credit for their forward collision warning components, which meet the criteria set by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The GLE-Class earns a good headlight rating for its available curve-adaptive LED projector headlights with high-beam assist. High-beam assist is a system that automatically switches between high beams and low beams, depending on the presence of other vehicles. This isn’t the first time the GLE has been commended for it’s safety. The 2019 GLE was previously announced as a 2019 TOP SAFETY PICK+ award winner, along with the E-Class Sedan, the GLC SUV, as well as the C-Class Sedan.
