Whiplash Protection Test

Rear: 0.31 points

Front: 1.21 points

Whiplash Protection Crash Test Image

Child Protection Test

In the frontal offset test, readings of neck tension indicated POOR protection for the 10 year dummy, while for the 6 year dummy protection of the head was ADEQUATE and the neck was MARGINAL. Protection of both dummies in other key body regions was GOOD.

In the side impact test, protection was GOOD for all critical body regions of both child dummies and maximum points were scored.

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class is fitted with lower ISOFix anchorages on the rear outboard seats and top tether anchorages for all rear seating positions.

Installation of typical child restraints available in Australia and New Zealand showed that all of the selected child restraints could be accommodated in each of the rear seating positions and full points were scored for this assessment.

Pedestrian Summary

The protection provided by the bonnet to the head of a struck pedestrian was predominantly MARGINAL to ADEQUATE with some WEAK and POOR results recorded on the stiff windscreen pillars and front of the bonnet. Protection of the pelvis was GOOD or ADEQUATE, while the bumper provided mostly GOOD protection to pedestrians’ legs with some ADEQUATE results seen on the outer edges of the bumper.

The autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system is capable of detecting and reacting to vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists. The AEB system showed GOOD performance in pedestrian test scenarios, in both daylight and low light, with collisions avoided or mitigated in most scenarios. GOOD performance was also seen in cyclist test scenarios, with collisions avoided or mitigated in most scenarios.
