The tested model of Mercedes-Benz B-Class was introduced in Australia during 2012. This ANCAP rating applies to all variants.
The diesel left-hand-drive European model was tested by Euro NCAP. ANCAP was provided with technical data which showed that petrol variants of the B-Class provide comparable occupant protection.
Dual front airbags, side airbags and head-protecting side curtains are standard equipment. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. Intelligent seat belt reminders are fitted to all front seats. Several other advanced safety features are available.
