The 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class models are some of the safest, most secure vehicles available in the segment, with excellent crash-test ratings and even more active safety technologies. We commend Mercedes for including so much tech in their mass-market, most affordable vehicles, too.

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 high-beam headlights, and lane-keeping assist.

The IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) gives it top marks of "good" in all crash-test categories; the federal government gives the 2014 C-Class a top overall five-star rating, with a five stars for side impacts, and four stars for frontal and rollover collisions.

Conclusion

Active-safety features are the newest options on the C-Class, which earns solid crash-test ratings.

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.
