On top of the endorsement of the IIHS, the C Class offers a suite of standard safety features, including: 13-way airbag protection via 11 airbags; active head restraints; adaptive brakes; stability and traction control; rain-sensing wipers; and Attention Assist, which monitors the driver for alertness. Optional safety extras include blind spot monitoring, rearview camera, parking guidance, adaptive highbeam headlights, and lane-keeping assist.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
