Mercedes-Benz welcomed the top safety score.

The X-Class owes this result above all to its especially sturdy body with high-strength passenger cell and a structure with front and rear ends capable of absorbing energy through selective deformation, as well as with an exceptionally large number of safety systems for the mid-size pickup segment.
