The B-Class, M-Class and C-Class Coupe Passed the NCAP Crash Test

Clarissa November 24, 2011

Mercedes-Benz’ new car models, the B-, M- and C-Class Coupe were awarded the best in the crash test based on the European New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). Both the B- and the M- Class are the best in their categories while the C-Class Coupe got the prime rating of five stars for outstanding occupant protection.

Other Mercedes’ innovations were also given awards. The PRE-SAFE system, COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST and ATTENTION ASSIST were recognized because of their benefits and the safety it can bring to riders or owners.

Ulrich Mellinghoff, Head of Mercedes-Benz Safety Development said, “The Euro NCAP awards are a striking recognition of the safety level of our vehicles, and we’re very happy about them,” he went further by saying, “But the standardized crash tests cover only a small part of the real course of events leading up to and during road accidents. For this reason

Mercedes-Benz designs all model series employing some 40 different accident constellations, most of which we define based on the experience of our in-house accident research. Additionally, focusing on anticipatory systems and accident avoidance we equip our vehicles with systems which are not even taken into account in the rating.”
