5 Star on Euro NCAP score

W204 Crash Test

The new W204 Mercedes-Benz C-Class now has an Euro NCAP score - 5 stars, thanks to its 7 airbags, seatbelt tensioners, belt-force limiters, and NECK PRO head restraints - all fitted as standard items on the European spec C-Class.

Of course, the body structure also plays an important part in the survivability of the passengers - crumple zones and such. 70% of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class’s body panels are made from state-of-the-art, high-strength steel alloys that minimise weight and maximise safety. Quadruple-skinned B-pillars and the side members absorb the bulk of any side-impact forces and channel these forces into the body structure, are made partially from ultra-high-strength, hot-formed high-tech steel.
