Expert Quotes:

‘Good,’ frontal offset; ‘good,’ side impact, ‘good,’ rear impact; 'good,' roof strength; Top Safety Pick
IIHS

Four stars overall; three stars frontal; five stars side
NHTSA




The 2013 Mercedes-Benz C Class models are safe, secure picks, with good safety ratings and a pretty impressive roster of safety features. And we applaud that the brand has brought many of its latest accident-avoidance technologies--like Attention Assist--to these lower-priced, higher-volume models where they're bound to make more of a difference.

The IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) gives it top marks of "good" in all crash-test categories; but the federal government hasn't crash-tested the 2013 Mercedes-Benz C Class yet in any form.

And on top of that, the roster of safety features is solid: 13-way airbag protection via 11 airbags; active head restraints; adaptive brakes; stability and traction control; rain-sensing wipers; and even 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.

Conclusion

The Mercedes-Benz C Class has solid safety ratings, and some active-safety features that aren't typical in this class.

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.
