Not sure where you are getting your results from but in the 4 test results NCAP score DS 93-83-69-82, GLC 95-89-82-71

https://www.euroncap.com/en/ratings-rew ... hnologies=
You need to click on the main figures to get the detail of each main number
I.e where DS gets 82 and GLC gets 71 , look at the make up of those .
The headline figures are just a guide m the detail is more informative.

For me such comparisons are not particularly relevant when choosing a vehicle. A lot of other factors come first and then, if all else was equal I’d consider these results.

talking from my single case experience a 2.5 pt (as in DS) in AEB interurban test means the likelihood of getting a severe injury at 80km/h may be reduced within a similar context of AEB operation.
From this point forward I may tend to buy my next car with such feature.
But you are right lot of other factors come first.

I’m glad you mentioned it philn. It’ll certainly start some of the newer members asking “what the heck is this all about”

I always look at safety first then narrow down my choice .
Having watched the M42 pile up and massive fire where I stopped 50 yards short of it , my view on poor safety results changed.
Then again afte that I swore I’d never buy a petrol again, but I just have. :roll:
Little things in life , including cardboard boxes and crocodiles do change your outlook :lol:
