2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE
Front Crash Prevention: Superior (6 points)
As the midsize SUV in the Mercedes-Benz lineup, the GLE was completely updated for the 2016 model year. (Note that this model was previously called M-Class and had been an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ winner since 2012.) Equipped with all the luxury features expected of a Mercedes, the GLE comes standard with Collision Prevention Assist, which uses radar to monitor the distance to a vehicle in front and will alert the drive while priming the brake if a crash seems imminent. Also available is Collision Prevention Assist Plus with active brake assist, which will automatically apply the brakes to avoid a collision.
