    The high level of protection provided by all GLK models is based on the self-supporting body made from sheet steel, including an extremely robust passenger cell. Not to mention front and rear structures that are capable of absorbing the maximum possible amount of impact energy on account of their outstanding deformation properties. At the front of the body, there are three load paths to ensure highly effective absorption and distribution of the impact energy.

    The passenger cell acts as a high-strength safety cage that protects the occupants in the event of an offset or side collision. Passive safety is further enhanced by a complete airbag and seat-belt system as well as the NECK PRO crash-responsive head restraints. Up to nine airbags can be specified.

    The ergonomics test bench with a 200-degree projection wall - one of a kind - allows the Mercedes engineers to assess the new GLK‘s sitting positions, spaciousness, visibility, control systems and display functions under realistic conditions at an early stage during the development process. The findings from these tests are later simulated and further optimised in the „CAVE“ (Computer Aided Virtual Environment) with the aid of three-dimensional projection technology. Finally the development results are verified on the ergonomics test bench using a real model.

    When it came to developing the chassis too, the engineers left practically no stone unturned. Firstly, the GLK had to display directional stability nd assuredness during tuning on the race track. Secondly, the developers ade sure that the requirements stipulated in the specifications book – especially those relating to hallmark Mercedes ride comfort on torture tracks and exceptional off-road climbing ability – were met to full.

    The test drives performed during development of the GLK could not have been more contrasting: searing heat and thick dust in the burning hot Namib Desert on the one hand; test drives and measuring drives in the Arctic Circle on the other. Only by subjecting the vehicle to these two very different extremes were the developers able to ensure that the GLK matured into an extremely reliable performer in all conditions.
