The tested model of Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe was introduced in Australia and New Zealand during 2011. This ANCAP safety rating applies to all 4 cylinder diesel variants.
The diesel left-hand-drive European model was tested by Euro NCAP. Australasian specifications may vary and therefore models sold in Australasia might provide different levels of protection to those described on this page.
Dual front airbags, side airbags, head-protecting side curtains and driver knee airbag are standard equipment. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard along with several other advanced safety features. Intelligent seat belt reminders are fitted to all seats. Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash.
