Mercedes-Benz GLB - Crash Tests 2019

The passenger compartment of the GLB remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the kneesand femurs of both the driver and passenger. Mercedes-Benz showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants ofdifferent sizes and to those sitting in different positions. In the full-width rigid barrier test, protection of all critical body regions was good oradequate with the exception of the neck of the driver, for which dummy readings of tensile forces indicated a marginal level of protection. Inthe side barrier test, protection of all critical body areas was good and the GLB scored maximum points. In the more severe side pole test,dummy readings of rib compression indicated marginal protection for the chest, with other critical parts of the body being well protected.Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision. Ageometric assessment of the rear seats also indicated good whiplash protection. The standard-fit autonomous emergency braking (AEB)system performed well in tests of its functionality at the low speeds, typical of city driving at which many whiplash injuries occur.
