Mercedes C-Class Cabriolet (2017) CRASH TEST. 2017 Mercedes C-Class Cabriolet EuroNCAP Crash Test
The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings showed good protection of the knees and femurs of both driver and passenger. Mercedes-Benz showed that a similar level of protection would be provided for occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. Protection of the passenger was good for all critical body areas. In the full-width rigid barrier test, protection of the driver and rear passenger was good or adequate. In the side barrier test, protection of the dummy was good for all critical body areas and maximum points were scored. However, in the more severe side pole test, dummy readings of rib compression indicated weak protection of the chest. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash injury in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometric assessment indicated weak whiplash protection for occupants of the rear seats. The C-Class Cabriolet has, as standard, an autonomous emergency braking system. Tests showed good performance of the functionality of this system at the low speeds at which many whiplash injuries are caused, with collisions avoided or mitigated.
