Mercedes-Benz M-class achieves Top Safety Pick+ Award from IIHS

The Mercedes-Benz M-class has succeeded in passing what is now the stricter crash test carried out by the American Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), picking up the 'Top Safety Pick+' (TSP+) award in the process. The premium SUV already received five
stars in the U.S. NCAP and Euro NCAP tests in 2012. As a result of this latest award, the M-class has again achieved the best marks and defended its leading position in three of the world's most important and most demanding safety ratings.

"We are extremely pleased with this award as only a few vehicles manage to achieve this hat-trick in the international safety ratings," said Prof Dr. Ing. Rodolfo Schoneburg, Head of Passive Safety and Vehicle Functions at Mercedes-Benz Cars. "Achieving this result in the world's most important consumer tests is extremely important to us. However, we base our integral safety development on real accident situations on the road, namely Real Life Safety."
