The 2020 Mercedes Benz GLC 300 has earned a Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety however there are a few specific equipment that need to be met.
The car did achieve a good score in all six of the agency’s crash-test evaluations, but a vehicle’s collision-avoidance systems and its headlines also must meet the minimum standard of effectiveness.
However, on the GLC 300 the automated collision-avoidance system is optional on models but is a requirement of the IIHS. It was also reported that the lighting of the model’s headlights were rated as “poor” by the IIHS.
The lack of required collision-avoidance systems and less illuminated headlights were two things that the Mercedes-Benz GLC-300 fell short of. However buyer can avail both of them by choosing to include these tow feature in their model to get a Top Safety Pick rated GLC-300.
It’s worth mentioning here that these options have a combined cost of $2,400.
