Mercedes C220 Crash and Safety Test
In the frontal offset test, the Mercedes-Benz C-passenger Class’s compartment remained steady. Mercedes-Benz demonstrated that occupants of all sizes and seated positions would receive an equivalent level of protection. The C-Class would be a relatively benign impact partner in a frontal accident, according to analyses of the impact trolley’s deceleration during the test and of the deformable barrier after the test.
The C-Class is equipped with a cutting-edge e Call system that notifies emergency services in the event of a collision. To prevent further collisions, the vehicle also has a system that applies the brakes after a collision.
Nearly all test locations provide adequate protection for a pedestrian’s head in a collision. At all test locations, the bumper offered excellent protection for pedestrians’ legs, however, the front edge of the bonnet offered varying degrees of pelvic protection. The C-Class incorporates an automatic emergency braking (AEB) system that can react to both other vehicles and vulnerable road users. In tests evaluating the system’s reaction to pedestrians, it performed satisfactorily. In most test scenarios, collisions with cyclists have been avoided thanks to the system’s responsiveness.
The front and rear seating positions in the C-Class have seatbelt reminder systems. In tests of how the AEB system reacts to other vehicles, collisions were successfully avoided in the vast majority of test scenarios. The local speed limit is identified by a camera-based speed assistance system, which then informs the driver and enables the limiter to be set appropriately. A vehicle’s path is gently corrected by a lane support system if it is drifting out of its lane, and it intervenes more forcefully in some more dire circumstances.
