Safety Features and Safety Rating: GLC or Macan?

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC was named as a Top Safety Pick+ by the experts at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and the 2018 version received a 5-star overall safety score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The 2019 Porsche Macan has not been evaluated by either agency.

Both the Macan and the GLC come equipped with an array of advanced safety features that includes a blind spot warning system, a lane departure warning system, daytime running lights, an available surround view monitor, and much more. However, only the GLC offers a driver alert monitor, seat belt pre-tensioning, GPS-enabled live emergency response, and NECK PRO® active head restraints designed to prevent whiplash.
