Mercedes the safest car in US!

Top SUV wins the "Safest car in the US" award, the Mercedes Benz M Class takes top honour in safety awards.

The safest car on US roads is? The Mercedes Benz M Class.

According to the safety organisation the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the safest car on the road in the US is the Mercedes Benz M Class, yet another sports utility vehicle gets a safety award proving that we have not seen the end of this class of vehicle by a long shot. This is important for one reason, this is the first that the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) have included sports utility vehicles into the running of the award system.

The Mercedes Benz M Class is a superior car in the sports utility vehicle class as you would have expected from a car maker like Mercedes Benz, the car offers many safety features including a Electronic Stability Program (ESP) which enables the car to remain stable during a skip on treacherous road conditions, Advanced air bag system which includes side impact bags, and a system named Pre Safe, which predicts an accident and tightens the seat belts prior to impact should an accident occur.

The Mercedes Benz M Class although originating in Germany is built in the US at the Mercedes Benz plant in Alabama, and has a price tag from $43,455.
